Jumeirah Group has announced plans for the refurbishment of its London property Jumeirah Carlton Tower.

The Knightsbridge property will close on September 1 to allow for the works to take place, with a scheduled reopening date of summer 2020.

Interiors will be “significantly remodeled to include a redesigned and enriched guest arrival experience at the hotel lobby entrance”, and a new “celebrity destination restaurant” will be created on Sloane Street. The hotel’s rooftop health club will also be revamped, with the addition of a new spa.

All guestrooms and suites are set to be refurbished, with the overall number of rooms reduced from 216 to 188, to allow for the creation of new Signature and Junior suites.

Commenting on the news José Silva, CEO of Jumeirah Group said:

“We are thrilled to announce our plans for the complete refurbishment of Jumeirah Carlton Tower. This project is a significant investment in the heart of Knightsbridge and is undertaken with the greatest attention to detail.

“A priority is to ensure that the new Jumeirah Carlton Tower will continue to be a cornerstone for the local community as well as an undisputed leader in the luxury hospitality world. This stunning re-imagining will contribute greatly to the repositioning of Jumeirah globally.”

Jumeirah Carlton Tower is located around the corner from the Belmond Cadogan Hotel, which reopened this month following a five-year refurbishment project.
