Need a reason to stay at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons? We’ll give you four. The boutique hotel in Oxfordshire, England, managed by two-Michelin-star Chef Raymond Blanc, has added four individually designed suites to its 32 rooms.
What we like: Each of the Superior Suites, co-designed by Blanc and interior designer Emily Todhunter, draws on themes that have inspired the former throughout his years as an acclaimed chef.
Room Blanc de Blanc is distinctively French. Think shades of white, hand-carved furniture and crystal chandeliers. This suite also has access to a private garden. Green Touch: Touted to be eco-friendly, the suite has been done up with organic paint.
Dim the lights and slip into something a little more comfortable in the Lace suite, which Blanc describes as, “a room to seduce, and to be seduced in.” (The room exudes a sultry feel with plush velvet, silk and textured wallpaper.) Tip: Sink back into the antique, ebonized four-poster bed.
For a uniquely Italian feel, book your clients into L’Orangerie, which takes on the look of an Italian Palazzo and a classic orangery. We love the limed oak and heated stone floors. Note: Step outside and breathe in the floral fragrances from the suite’s private garden.
The Jade suite has a Far East feel, accented with orange silk, leather, velvet and bronze artwork. Neat Touch: The suite is entered under the canopy of an oriental tree and has such amenities as a walk-in rain shower and steam room.
Luxury travel advisors can contact General Manager Philip Newman-Hall ([email protected]) with further suite questions.
|The Lace Suite is considered the most romantic at Le Manoir. It has its own steam room among other amenities.|
