The Beaumont hotel in London’s Mayfair is to reopen on August 20, following refurbishment works carried out during the enforced closure due to Covid-19.

As reported late last year, the hotel took advantage of uncertainty surrounding the pandemic to remain closed for around 18 months, allowing renovation works to take place.

In what it refers to as “a gentle revolution”, the hotel’s interiors have been revamped by New York-based designer Thierry Despont and London-based architects Reardon Smith, including the transformation of the former Gatsby bar into “a relaxed, intimate all-day dining space, very much inspired by the 1926 origins of the building”.

Le Magritte Bar has also been relocated and redesigned, and a new sheltered outdoor terrace has been added “enfolded by lush greenery and facing Brown Hart Gardens”.

The Colony Grill Room has had a refresh, with reupholstered banquette seating and “striking new murals and artwork”, and a new Mayfair Suite has been created on the first floor overlooking Brown Hart Gardens.

Finally the hotel’s Beaumont Spa has been expanded, with a larger gym, and the addition of an extra treatment room.

Located on Brown Hart Gardens close to Oxford Street and Grosvenor Square, The Beaumont originally opened in 2014 as the first hotel by restaurateurs Corbin and King. The property has since been sold to the Barclay Brothers, and Corbin and King is no longer involved in its management.
