A year after opening the first Hotel Clicquot in Byron Bay, Veuve Clicquot has moved up the coast to bring the brand’s luxurious $3,500-a-night accommodation experience to Sunshine Beach, Queensland, just a short drive away. the outskirts of Noosa. Given the success of the Byron Bay iteration, Hotel Clicquot Noosa looks like another easy sell for the French champagne house, which has set up the purpose-built hotel in a coastal location for a total of just ten days.

Of course, this hotel‘s design is aggressively colored in the instantly recognizable white and yellow stripes so emblematic of the historic Maison. It also happens to be the perfect reflection of summer, which should help keep the La Niña-induced blues at bay as you kick back and relax on two nights hosted by the label. Beyond top-of-the-range accommodation with a complete package of activities, gastronomy and the three flagship expressions of Veuve Clicquot: Label Jaune, Rose and Riche.

Two packages are offered for anyone wishing to spend time at Hotel Clicquot Noosa. The first is the standard $7,000 package that gets you two nights for two with a series of guest chefs, your own sommelier, and airport and local transfers handled by a Tesla.

Each guest also enjoys a one-hour spa treatment while each night ends with a different gourmet dining experience. On the first night, you’ll have a chef’s table experience around a fire pit with locally caught seafood. On the second floor, Byron Bay chef David Moyle will lead a ‘Garden Gastronomy’ tasting menu paired with La Grande Dame vintages to cap off your experience at Hotel Clicquot Noosa.

Throughout the stay there is a wide range of typical Noosa experiences to discover. Think sunrise yoga, surf lessons, private river cruises or, closer to home, home theater sessions.

The second package is a bit more advanced. At $8,000 for two nights, you’ll get all of the above plus a cruise along the Noosa River on a crewed mahogany speedboat – nicknamed the Clicquot Dreamboat – ending with a bespoke picnic lunch with Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé.

If you have the cash to burn and spending two nights being pampered by Veuve Clicquot is right for you, note that Hôtel Clicquot is only available for bookings between November 3 and November 13, 2022. The first allotment of dates appears to have already been booked, but the official site has opened expressions of interest when more dates become available.

Highland Hospice supporter Alison McRitchie is hosting a very special event in Inverness next year to benefit the charity.

Catwalk for a Cause will take place at the Drumossie Hotel on Saturday February 11, sponsored by MKM Building Supplies.

The event will feature a host of brave individuals whose lives have been affected by cancer, wearing the clothes of models from Highland Hospice’s charity shops on the catwalks and telling their own individual stories.

As special guests, Steve Bland and Lauren Mahon – from the award-winning podcast You, Me and the Big C – will pay tribute to the late Dame Deborah James (aka Bowelbabe).

Alison, who is well known locally as the salon manager of The Head Gardener in Inverness, said: ‘Like so many others, my heart has been touched by Dame Deborah James and her mission to break taboos around breast cancer. ‘intestine. He was an icon who had all the qualities that this event celebrates.

“Lady Deborah was so brave and kind and her story inspired me to do something here in the Highlands. I am delighted to have Steve and Lauren join us for the event.

“As Highland Hospice provided end-of-life care to my father and sister, it is a cause close to my heart.

“All proceeds from this event will be shared between the hospice and a cancer charity chosen by Steve and Lauren.”

Highland Hospice fundraiser Emma Nicol said: ‘We are extremely grateful to have Alison’s support throughout this incredible event. She has raised a phenomenal amount of money for Highland Hospice over the years, while raising awareness in the community about the work we do.

“Her latest event, Highland Hearts of Gold, held in 2020, raised an incredible £78,000, and we know she will make Catwalk for a Cause a huge success.”

• Tickets are £55, which includes fizz on arrival, canapes and a light supper. For tickets contact e.nicol@highlandhospice.org.uk

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Robert Bigelow, a Las Vegas-based hotel magnate, has always had a cause.

For decades, he invested profits from his hotel in UFO research, starting his own aerospace company while lobbying senators to fund additional research. More recently, he offered nearly $1 million in prizes for a contest to show consciousness after death, as part of his newfound interest in the afterlife.

One of Cambodia’s most iconic hotel properties, the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor has reopened after a refresh and reports are favourable.

Affectionately known as La Grande Dame d’Angkor, Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor has been welcoming travelers to Siem Reap, Cambodia since 1932. Designed by French architect Ernest Hébrard in a style that combines Khmer art and furnishings with Art Deco influences, the Grand Hotel opened its doors with only 63 rooms, all with private bathrooms, unique for the time. From Charlie Chaplin to Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama, a host of celebrity guests have enjoyed the hospitality here.

The colonial atmosphere is undeniable, although the refresh has brought brightness and color. Image: Courtesy of Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor.

The property, along with its sister hotel, Le Royal, in Phnom Penh, was taken over by Fairmont Raffles Hotels International in 1997 at the invitation of King Sihanouk of Cambodia. After a carefully planned restoration in 2019 and the pause in travel during the pandemic, the historic Raffles Grand Hotel at Angkor has finally reopened its doors and the enthusiastic faithful are delighted with the transformation.

The old is golden, but brighter

Returning guests will notice that the hotel’s famous facade and entire exterior now shines white, rather than its former cream-beige hue that was the color of French colonial architecture across Indochina.

Bedrooms now feature lighter and brighter interiors along with the addition of Segafredo coffee machines, USB charging stations and Simmons pillow top mattresses. French doors, which open onto street scenes or the hotel’s plantation-style gardens, have been upgraded, and each room now has a desk and vintage rotary phone, thanks in part to the extra floor space created by removing cabinets and replacing them with built-in cabinets.

Dennis de Groot, General Manager of Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, said: “It is a wonderful feeling to bring this enchanting hotel back to life. According to him, “The Grand Hotel is a national treasure, and its rich history bears witness to Cambodia’s colorful past. It was originally built as a stopover for archaeologists and adventurers seeking to explore the ancient kingdom of Angkor Wat. As we prepare to celebrate the hotel’s 90th anniversary this year, we are delighted that this hotel can continue to set the standard for luxury hospitality, where travelers arrive as guests, leave as as friends and come back as family.

Options: Welcome to KL. What have been some of your favorite discoveries about the city so far?
Blaise Montandon
: It’s been a little over a month since I arrived but I have visited Malaysia many times before, especially when I was living in Singapore and Bangkok. I love the diversity and dynamism of this country. I’m particularly impressed with how Chinatown is now very lively, filled with many interesting little bars and restaurants, and KL has a very authentic feel to it. It’s not sterile or overly polished, which I appreciate. Here, you feel the soul of the country… it’s very authentic. But it’s only been a few weeks and I can’t wait to find out more. My priority is of course the immersion within the hotel above all. You need to understand your product and your employees so that everything is done with purpose.

Tell us about some of your plans to take a resort-style approach to guest stays.
What we want when people come to stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, whether for business or leisure, is to help them create and experience meaningful relationships. This is especially true for business travelers. They are on the road all the time and we want them to enjoy a stay that goes beyond checking into a room and having a buffet breakfast. Some ongoing experiments with meaning and good intentions include our sustainability initiatives, chief among which is our beehive adoption program.

The stingless bee or kelulut, as you know, is very special for Bar Trigona (Trigona is the name of one of the largest genera of stingless bees). So this beehive adoption program is not only a unique and positive way to boost bee populations, but also help train new beekeepers and set up more bee sanctuaries. bees. There is a one year adoption fee per trigona bee hive and guests will receive a personalized certificate, a small bottle of bee propolis, quarterly videos and photo updates. You are also welcome to visit the farm, meet the farmers and best of all get a discount when you come for a drink at Bar Trigona.

You grew up in Switzerland, we believe.
Yes, in a very small town called Fleurier, near Neuchâtel, with less than 4000 inhabitants. I’m amazed how many Malaysians know this from a certain watch brand named Parmigiani Fleurier. It is at the heart of Swiss watchmaking since the Chopard factory is not far away, as well as Piaget.

What made you decide to pursue a career in the hotel industry rather than join the watch industry?
I love nice watches but that’s not the industry for me. My great passions are traveling and meeting people. I had no intention of living and working in my small village all my life.

So, what are you wearing on your wrist right now?
Nothing today. I only wear watches in the evening or during beautiful events. However, I own two Piagets; one belonged to my father, the other to my mother. And although one is my mother’s watch, it has a large dial so it fits my wrist. Both timepieces are, of course, very special to me.

You have worked all over the world: Singapore, Japan, China, Thailand, India, Morocco and, more recently, Vietnam. What have been some of your most memorable experiences?
Marrakech was particularly memorable as it was my first time working with Four Seasons. But since my youth, Asia has always fascinated me the most. My first assignment in Asia was actually as an intern, at the Lai Lai Sheraton in Taipei. Can you imagine me, a young boy from Fleurier in Taiwan? It was as good as going to the moon. Culture shock is just beginning to describe it. I was the first in my family to visit Asia, and the trip to Taiwan then meant flying from Geneva to Zurich, then Athens, Karachi and Hong Kong before finally arriving in Taipei. There were lots of good memories, including the happy days when I could find potatoes and yoghurt to eat (you have to remember, this was Taipei in the early 1980s and of course I love the Asian cuisine more than anything now) and watch the lobby [of the hotel]. It was the first time in my life that I saw such a lobby!

Are you also an opera fan?
Yes, I like it very much, especially the music of Verdi and Puccini. I remember watching Aida at the ancient Roman amphitheater in Verona which turns into the biggest open-air opera every summer, but my all-time favorite is Bohemian. I also really like musicals and I have a weakness for The Phantom of the Opera, in part because I met Dame Gillian Lynne, the show’s original choreographer, when she visited Beijing in 2008, and Sarah Brightman, the person most famous for playing Christine Daaé, when she was in Singapore. Oh, I should also mention having met the great soprano Montserrat Caballé when I hosted her in my capacity as Director of Sales and Marketing at Hotel President (now President Wilson), Geneva.

And how do you like to spend your weekends here so far?
I have friends in KL which is very nice, and to be honest I spent weekends shopping. As a rule, I bring very little when I move to a new place. This time I came with a few boxes, some artwork, and two pieces of furniture, including a cabinet that belonged to my grandparents. It’s important to own a few things that remind you of your roots and your heritage, but I don’t need to own a lot to enjoy life.

Throughout two world wars, an economic depression and now a global pandemic, the Grand Hotel in Tynemouth has overlooked one of the northeast’s favorite beaches, Longsands.

Originally built as a summer residence for the Duchess of Northumberland in 1872 at a cost of just £10,000, the hotel has had many famous clients over the years, including Dame Vera Lynn, although the best known be Laurel and Hardy. In fact, the comedy duo’s fan club still meets at the hotel, though the room they often stay in has been converted into a kitchen.

More recently, the hotel hosted local superstar Sam Fender and singer Sam Smith. And on Sunday, August 28, the hotel will celebrate its 150th anniversary with afternoon tea in its Orchid Suite and drinks on its newly refurbished rooftop terrace.

Gavin Taylor-Groombridge, General Manager of the Grand Hotel, said: “We need to do something to celebrate 150 years of grand old maid, because with everything going on in the world, 150 years is an absolute milestone. We are renowned for afternoon teas and weddings so we thought we would merge the two together to celebrate.

“We did an afternoon tea themed around local celebrations. Obviously I wasn’t here 150 years ago, but we touched on old English classics like the classic cucumber sandwiches and our manager of bar has come up with a cocktail that looks like a sparkling summer garden.”



The roof terrace of the Grand Hotel has been refurbished

In addition to its snacks, the Grand Hotel is renowned for its architecture. The classic beachfront hotel is a Grade II listed building and has a dome that houses the original staircase, the latter being one of the building’s most notable features.

General manager Gavin says the hotel itself is a reason many guests have booked since it started 18 months ago, with this busy summer as the staycation market has remained strong since the coronavirus pandemic. Covid. Gavin continued: “It’s huge, the demographics because of the history of the hotel – and there’s no other hotel in the area that has that view, it’s second to none.”

The absolute importance of audio https://neworleanshotel-site.com/the-absolute-importance-of-audio/ Thu, 25 Aug 2022 17:05:30 +0000 https://neworleanshotel-site.com/the-absolute-importance-of-audio/ One of the suites of the new Denmark Castle; surround sound in considerable comfort. … [+] Castle Denmark ‘It’s a little complicated.

‘It’s a little complicated. First you have to use this remote to connect to the TV, then this one…” As her voice trailed off, we both knew my jet lagged self knew I was going to have my first night at the hotel with just the hum of air conditioning in the background.

“Our IT department chose him,” the man apologized, offering to come back when I was asleep. I’ve also stayed in many rooms where a $100,000+ room remodel was paired with a cheap clock radio.

What we expect from our homes and the hotels we stay in is an ever-evolving relationship between familiarity and the excitement of new experiences. However, increasingly, when we’re away, we want a sound system to be as good – and as easy to connect – as our home sound systems.

Still lined with guitar shops, London’s Denmark Street has more than half a century of rock ‘n’ roll history. Chateau Denmark – which opened in April 2022 – has transformed several street buildings into a series of hotel rooms and suites. Number 6 where the Sex Pistols were reborn as the apartment I Am Anarchy, still with the Johnny Rotten caricatures on the wall.

Elsewhere, the former studios of David Bowie, Lou Reed and the Rolling Stones are now a mix of sleazy and distinctly fun places to lay down, with freestanding tubs, maxi bars and outdoor decor. And they are all equipped with the latest audio equipment.

Entry-level rooms have Artcoustic soundbars but it’s in the suites and lofts where the sound gets very serious. Here you’ll find speakers from Void – typically used in clubs – and Meridian, all installed by audio specialist Butler Harwell.

For added enjoyment (and sonic depth), the townhouse apartment has a subwoofer built into the couch. But the system is accessible; there’s just one remote control and access to the speakers – and a series of playlists referencing Denmark Street’s musical history – is via the TV.

Void Acoustics, founded in 2002 by Rog Mogale and Alex Skan, and based in Dorset in the English West Country, was born out of the Acid House movement. Its speakers shun traditional black boxes. Instead, they are sculptural; with Chateau Denmark opting for Air speakers in bright red for some suites. Void also provides the sound system for the public spaces of the Hôtel Dame des Arts, which opens in Paris on October 17; it will also have bespoke playlists.

Ruark is another specialist audio company increasingly sought after by hotels wanting to ensure their audio is up to standard. Founded in 1985 and based just outside of London, Ruark has an outsized reputation for audio engineering. Each R1 – with Bluetooth speaker and DAB radio – costs over £239 but offers serious sound in very compact dimensions (the R1 measures 13×13.5×17.5cm and won a Wallpaper Smart Space award in 2021).

Over the past few years Ruark has also supplied the hotels and cottages of the Farncombe estate with its audio products, as well as The Savoy and the Iconic Luxury Hotel group which includes Cliveden House.

Clock radios? Nowadays and in the era of smartphones? They simultaneously offer retro familiarity and – there’s still nothing quite like tuning into a local station to help you feel connected to a new country or place. DAB radio, common in Europe and other countries, but not in the US, has crystal clear sound and Ruark still has a dial for easy operation.

Ruark Founder Alan O’Rourke says, “At Ruark, we design audio products that are aesthetically pleasing, but more importantly they have a rich, natural sound quality, producing an ambience that draws the listener in. Our R1 is a perfect example of a product that exudes sophistication in the bedroom and is one that customers will enjoy spending time with.

Review: Nimb Hotel, Copenhagen, Denmark https://neworleanshotel-site.com/review-nimb-hotel-copenhagen-denmark/ Thu, 25 Aug 2022 08:37:30 +0000 https://neworleanshotel-site.com/review-nimb-hotel-copenhagen-denmark/ At night, the grand Moorish facade of the Nimb Hotel, with its bulbous and minarets, is lit up with colored lights, accentuating the fairytale aspect of its unique architecture.

At night, the grand Moorish facade of the Nimb Hotel, with its bulbous and minarets, is lit up with colored lights, accentuating the fairytale aspect of its unique architecture. It’s an enchanting Instagram-worthy scene, as if the building is dressed in a thousand luminous jewels, bringing the hotel’s story to life, originally inspired by the colors and character of a Middle Eastern bazaar.

World famous for its opulence on the outside and elegance on the inside, the Nimb remains the grand dame of Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens. Home to one of the oldest amusement gardens in the world, Tivoli Gardens is said to have influenced Walt Disney when he was planning Disneyland in California. Like the park, the building was created by director and architect Tivoli Knud Arne Petersen and the hotel has been located there since 1909.

Unlike some historic hotels that have fallen on hard times at one time or another, the Nimb has maintained its standard of excellence over the decades. In 2008, the hotel underwent its first complete renovation. Its exterior was restored in Italian marble stucco, while inside, fresh décor championed Danish design and its connection to cozy Scandinavian living or “hygge”. Fall 2017 marked another milestone with the opening of a new 2,000 sqm wing designed by New York architects Pei Cobb Freed & Partners expanding the hotel from 17 to 38 luxurious rooms and suites.

A junior suite

Having only used this new space for just over a year before the pandemic hit and forced the hotel to close, the Nimb is enjoying something of a second unveiling as it invites guests to experience a host of updates, including 20 new luxury suites, plus an expansive rooftop terrace with a heated pool decorated with Italian mosaics, surrounded by lounge chairs and serviced by a beach-style cocktail bar.

In the basement, the dark lacquered walls are matched by a beautiful piece of water the size of a small pond equipped with a decorative antique canoe and surrounded by exotic flowers. Here you’ll find a small gym with state-of-the-art Technogym machines (also used in Warner Bros. studios in the UK by stuntmen too!) and a wellness area, for massages, a steam bath or the full haman experience. .

Nimb's rooftop pool with stunning views of Copenhagen

The rooms

All rooms have a view of Tivoli, so you can people watch during the day and see the gardens magically sparkle when the sun goes down – thankfully the screams emanating from the roller coasters and other adrenaline rides are barely audible . Unsurprisingly, the suites are the Nimb’s pieces de resistance, most with their own balconies and fireplaces. All rooms boast a contemporary Nordic style that is both luxurious and comfortable, and benefit from a knowledgeable curatorial touch in the form of handpicked 17th-19th century antiques from China and the Far East. The palette is sumptuous with velvet textures and brightly colored fabrics bringing warmth to the neutral tones of larger furnishings. The whitest part of the room is the bespoke four-poster bed, upholstered in rich hand-woven Egyptian cotton from exclusive Danish textile company Geismars.

In terms of technology and finer frills, no expense has been spared: all 38 rooms have Bang & Olufsen TVs and sound systems, large built-in wardrobes, and work desks. The spacious bathrooms have both showers and bathtubs, as well as double sinks. If you want the ultimate bath, ask for the Executive Suite, which has a huge, state-of-the-art tub that looks like one of Anish Kapoor’s hollowed-out sculptures. Apparently that’s where Kate Moss likes to stay.

Junior suite with balcony

What sets it apart

As with all five-star establishments – although officially considered a boutique hotel – the devil is in the detail. For starters, the service is exemplary with no customer queries considered too complicated. We asked for information on the best game shops in Copenhagen (four were recommended, all off the beaten track) as well as a recommendation for a special teatime treat – it just so happened to be from Cakenhagen, the Nimb’s luxury patisserie in Tivoli Gardens, a paradise of small macaroons and artistic confectionery.

The concierge will also be happy to arrange city tours, personal shopping, limos, private yoga classes, and a free pass to a larger fitness center if you want more space. to whet your appetite. By the way, the Nimb uses renewable energy provided by the Avedøre Holme wind farm off Copenhagen.

A selection from Cakenhagen

Eat and drink

The Nimb has a total of five restaurants and two bars — one by the pool, the other, more sophisticated, is on the first floor. Located in the hotel’s former ballroom, the latter is a step back in time, complete with an enormous glass chandelier and a six-foot fireplace. The space has a fresh contemporary feel thanks to large figurative murals by artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen who has a Danish knighthood (otherwise known as the Order of the Dannebrog).

Eating is a Nordic-inspired art form with as much local produce as possible to suit all tastes through a variety of cuisines. For easy meals, there’s Fru Nimb who specializes in the most patrician of open sandwiches. Think dill artfully placed on a succulent gravlax on a bed of fan-sliced ​​avocado.

    Open sandwiches take on new meaning at Fru Nimb

Gemyse, located in the park itself but run by the hotel, is an inventive vegetarian restaurant that pushes the boundaries of green and root vegetables. On the menu at the time of writing: royal trumpets with garlic and candied asparagus accompanied by corn with crispy polenta and Karamelsten, a delicious caramelized local cheese.

Brasserie Nimb in the hotel’s original wing specializes in French specialties, including excellent steak frites, but there’s also a nod to Nordic traditions. When in season, try the juicy, fully sustainable Vilsund blue mussels from a mussel aquaculture farm in Limfjorden Cove, North Jutland, apparently the only one in the world to be certified by the MSC, which recognizes and rewards the sustainable fishing. The Nimb Brasserie is also the breakfast area. Sometimes it also serves as a reception area for a star-studded evening: 2022 Tour de France winner, Danish cyclist Jonas Vingaard, celebrated his triumph at the brasserie with his friends and family, as well as around 20,000 proud Danes saluting the lawns of Tivoli.

A deluxe double room

What to do

What not to do in Copenhagen?! Hire a bike – a vintage Velorbis from the hotel – and do as the locals do. If you have kids, you’ll want to take full advantage of your free pass to Tivoli Gardens with its many roller coasters, old-fashioned arcade games, shops, cafes and aperitif spots. The garden also hosts a full program of events each summer, from fish feedings at the park’s jewel aquarium to jazz concerts on the main stage. Ballet performances – some world premieres – take place at the historic open-air Pantomime Theater (Pantomimeteateret). Erected in 1874 in an ornate Chinese style, it is the oldest building in Tivoli and counts Queen Margrethe II of Denmark as its in-house decorator and costume designer.

Trick

Book a stay well in advance. Deluxe and standard rooms are particularly sought after, sometimes up to three months before arrival.

The Pridwin Hotel and Cottages on Shelter Island, part of the Hamptons, is one of Long Island’s oldest hotels. Since opening 95 years ago, the property has been a mainstay for vacationers looking for a relaxing getaway with a warm, old-fashioned atmosphere reminiscent of another era.

Today, to celebrate its 95th anniversary, the Pridwin has re-opened after a two-year comprehensive refurbishment and is better than ever. With refreshed white paint and signature green casement windows, its 33 rooms and 16 private cottages sit on 7 pristine acres of waterfront property overlooking Shelter Island’s Crescent Beach. Staying here is like glamping and being transported back in time to one of those classic Adirondack summer camps… only fancier and with great service to boot.

Cape Resorts, owners of Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor and several historic hotels in Cape May, has partnered with the Petry family for the restart – the Petrys have owned and operated the property since 1961. Curtis Bashaw, the managing partner of Cape Resorts says it wanted to update the historic property while keeping the beloved traditions (s’mores around the fire pit at night, for one) and the original salt-of-the-earth atmosphere.

The design, under the direction of Colleen Bashaw of Brown Hall Design, is a creative blend of past and present. Much of the woodwork, hardwood floors, and wicker furniture are original and juxtaposed with bright new fabrics and contemporary wood furnishings. Other new elements include custom rugs in greens and blues for the bedrooms, hand brushed oak cannonball beds with rope detailing and botanical themed rugs and printed upholstery fabrics. garden in public spaces. The cottages have a fireplace and a view of the water.

Today’s Pridwin has many amenities: in addition to a swimming pool and fitness center, there is a spa with 3 treatment rooms as well as a games room and a convenience store named ” Edie’s”, named after the former Pridwin matriarch, Edie Petry. Guests can take advantage of free water sports such as kayaking and paddleboarding and have local staff to help them plan their days.

When it comes to soaking up, the horseshoe-shaped Crescent Bar offers creative cocktails and an extensive wine list. As the sun sets, this is where guests congregate, drink in hand, and mingle on the long porch. Dining-wise, The Terrace, overlooking the water, serves dishes to please all types of eaters, from grilled cheese and tomato soup like your mother used to make, to appetizer salads and locally caught seafood.

In the short time since its reopening, The Pridwin has had its share of celebrity visitors: Christie Brinkley and her family arrived by boat to dine on the terrace, and on August 11, Brooke Shields, Jonathan Adler , Simon Doonan and designer Nicole Miller hosted an event to benefit the New York Academy of Art with easels on the lawn. And I can’t forget to mention that designer Dennis Basso played rummikub with some friends by the pool one recent afternoon.

To sum up, The Pridwin is a campy and feel-good place. That’s exactly why it’s here to stay.
