Inside the King’s Lodge, the Connaught Hotel’s New Royal Suite in London

The Connaught wants to give you the full royal treatment.

The five-star London hotel just unveiled a lavish new suite designed in collaboration with King Charles III’s charity, Turquoise Mountain. Located on the fifth floor, the aptly named King’s Lodge is designed to take you from the busy streets of Mayfair into ancient times.

Interior designer Guy Oliver brought the 484-square-foot space to life, pairing Mughal-inspired decor with a palette of deep red, terracotta, and gold. Artisans from far-flung destinations were commissioned to construct elements within the one-bedroom suite, in keeping with the work of Turquoise Mountain. (The NGO was founded in 2006 by His Majesty to revive historic areas and traditional crafts while creating jobs and opportunities for creatives across the globe.)

During a night’s stay, you’ll come across architectural woodwork made in Jordan by Syrian artisans, as well as handwoven carpets and miniature paintings from Afghanistan and fabrics from Myanmar. You’ll also find marble panels and mirrored glass insets from India. The grandiosity doesn’t end there, though.

The bathroom is fit for a king, with twin basins, a walk-in shower, and a Japanese Toto toilet. The highlight is the stylish wood-paneled bathtub, which features a carved marble artwork above it. You can also expect a full set of Bamford’s aromatic bath products for rejuvenating soaks.

The spacious suite also includes a light-filled sitting room and quaint nooks along the long hallway. It offers several amenities, too, such as a Bang & Olufsen speaker system, a minibar stocked with British treats, and a coffee machine. Naturally, a 24-hour butler will be on hand to meet your every request.

There is, of course, plenty to explore in the 121-key hotel, too. The Connaught is home to a Michelin three-star restaurant, one of the world’s best bars, an Aman Spa, and an art gallery.
