The new Inhabit Hotel will take over six Georgian townhouses in London’s Southwick Street and focus on guests well-being and its own eco-ethics.
Located close to Hyde Park, the hotel will offer guided morning runs and mapped-out running routes to help guests navigate the city’s green spaces. The brand’s philosophy will be “staying healthy doesn’t have to be hard when travelling” and will promote regular fitness classes as well as healthy food choices.
The hotel’s staff will also be equipped with wellness knowledge and guests will be encouraged to make use of its library for relaxation time.
Guests will also be provided with Ren Clean Skincare products, while yoga and guided meditation will be held in the large atrium, and the hotel will supply guests with access to a 24-hour pantry, stocked with snacks produced by small businesses.
Inhabit will not use any single-use plastics and has partnered with social enterprises such as Kalinko, a brand of ethically crafted textiles and home-wares produced in Burma.
Nightly rates at Inhabit London will start from £150.
THPT Comment: More activity in the boutique hotel sector for this 20-strong hotel and property group. They announced their first, The Chilworth in nearby Paddington last July. Good to see the eco and well-being theme being a cornerstone to the Inhabit brand.
