To know me is to know my absolute obsession with all-things-Bond. James Bond. Those incredible international settings, those intriguing accents that sound beautiful but are impossible to place, the suspense, the action, the evil but laughable villains, and the glam. I was hooked long ago and I believe that's where my love affair with luxury hotels began.
The prospect of living like a Bond girl in sheer opulence, even temporarily, is just something that never gets old, and only more exciting as I tackle new destinations. To all of my like-minded Explorateurs, here's a brilliant Bond option to ponder. Oh, and don't try to find me on the day of the Skyfall premiere...'I'll either be first in line at the theater or in this suite...
In honor of one of the world's most famous spies, the London Hilton on Park Lane has launched the "Spies the Limit" package, allowing guests to live the life of a true international man of mystery, if only just for the night. Indulge in an overnight stay in the stunning Penthouse Suite, topped off with an evening at celebrity haunt Whisky Mist for a martini or two, and exclusive access to the Executive Lounge. And, by Penthouse Suite we're talking absolute Bond style in every aspect- 125m² in size with amazing views of Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, ultra-sleek gadgetry that even Q would be proud of, including an automatic door closer, bespoke lighting system to set the mood, a TV set inside a mirror and even a jacuzzi complete with colored light effects. Spy friendly indeed.
The opulence of the suite is truly something out of any Bond film with the typical to-die-for views only found in movies and a private balcony to enjoy them on, swanky study for use when work actually needs to get done, and butler service which can be added on (naturally) as what self-respecting spy wouldn't have one on hand?
Prices start at £3,007 per room for two, valid for travel through 30 Nov 12. for info and be sure & tell 'em The Explorateur sent you!
