The Explorer’s Penthouse

A trek to the outer reaches of Knightsbridge. A journey downriver. An expedition to the hidden corners of Hyde Park. Few base-camps are as luxuriously well equipped as The Explorer’s Penthouse.

Here, a sense of style counts for more than a sense of adventure. Evoking the elegance of the British Empire and the Belle Époque, the contemporary suite is a safe haven of comfortable opulence. With generous living space, a private balcony and a sweeping staircase leading to the upper-floor master bedroom, the emphasis is on gracious, carefree living. In the bathrooms, Crema Perla limestone floors and walls blend with Calacatta Oro marble surfaces to complete the picture of unrestrained luxury.

Amid the indulgence, intrepid travellers will recognise subtle pointers to the theme of exploration. The textured panels and leather-trimmed sisal rug are nods towards life under canvas on safari, the chandelier reflects a mechanical model of the solar system and the shelves display attractive curios of travel. Underfoot, the end-grain oak parquet is an unusually natural touch, while the bathroom’s vanity washstands and freestanding mirrors are reminiscent of luxury on the move.
