Location: The Jaguar Suite is located at 51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences, side-street between Buckingham Palace and Westminster Cathedral, London. The Jaguar suite is a newly added feature to the already known Taj, and will be available from September.
Accommodation: This five star TATA enterprise Taj hotel has collaborated with another TATA company Jaguar, and has added two suits in the hotel that are sleekly-designed 1,832 square ft suites, inspired by Jaguar’s timeless style and technological innovation, which will be the first of its kind in the world. The bedroom is evidently designed with the inspiration from the Jaguar models of cars of legendary 1960’s E-type to the state-of-the art C-X75.
The rooms are designed by the Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum and his in-house design team, hence the rooms feature the custom-built auto motivated artwork. The material used in the decor and the furnishing are leather, metal and high gloss veneers. The rooms are equipped with super king sized beds, grand sized bathrooms and marble floored showers. Further, the room is decorated with subtle Jaguar motifs and artwork, and consists of dining area to accommodate 10 people, a fully ready gloss black kitchen and a number of gadgets including TV’s, Blu-ray players and sound systems. The room also features the unique wall that is covered in Italian leather, and is embedded with a 42 inch television with minimalist clean-fuel fireplace. There is no word on the tariff as of now. Apart from these two suites, the hotel features 86 contemporary suites from one to nine bedrooms, including the Presidential floor, separate living room, fully-equipped kitchens and luxurious bathrooms.
Fine Dinning: Apart from the Jaguar room which has a dinning space for 10 people, the hotel has three separate restaurants and three bars for the elegant guests.
Other Highlights: The hotel is built in a true English style as the architecture gives glimpse of the history of England. Award-winning Courtyard garden plays a beautiful ornate cherub ordained fountain (allegedly a gift from Queen Victoria). Another highlight of the hotel is the Michelin starred Quilon Restaurant which serves southern coastal Indian cuisine. The hotel has an array of rejuvenating spa option with a bespoke treatment range designed by Anne Sémonin.
