6th June 2018
The most indulgent days begin when you don’t have to move too far from the comfort of bed. Order breakfast to be delivered to your room and keep that cosy, romantic feeling for as long as possible. We’ll bring you whatever your heart desires from our breakfast menu, whether it’s our famous Full English breakfast, waffles served with delectable trimmings or a nutrient-packed smoothie to kickstart your day.
Our location in the heart of Mayfair and on the edge of Green Park means you don’t have to wander too far to find some of London’s most famous sights. If you’re a fan of all things royal, take a stroll through Green Park until you reach Buckingham Palace on the other side. It’s possible to buy tickets to go inside the State Rooms every summer. Carry on walking a little further if you feel like taking in Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben too. If shopping’s more your thing, wander around the plentiful boutiques on the streets of Mayfair. Art fans can easily wander from The Athenaeum to Hyde Park and the Serpentine Gallery, or head to the Royal Academy of Arts (RA), which is just off Piccadilly.
After a few hours of sightseeing and enjoying the best of London life, it’s time to relax and revive…and we’ve got the ideal place to make that happen. Our REN Spa is a haven of tranquillity. Spend a little time in one of our two cedar wood hot tubs, then head to the steam room, sauna and relaxation area. Pick a treatment from our indulgent spa menu too. With everything from the full body REN Moroccan Rose Ritual to the REN Head in the Clouds treatment – inspired by the Indian head massage – there’s sure to be something to tempt you and your loved one.
In the evening, you don’t have to travel far to have an exceptional meal. Our restaurant – Galvin at The Athenaeum – is by Michelin-starred London chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin. Serving seasonal British flavours with an inventive twist in a refined setting, it’s a London hotspot where romance is definitely in the air. Round off a perfect day in style with an intimate drink in THE BAR at The Athenaeum. Choose a cocktail from a menu designed especially for The Athenaeum by the world-renowned cocktail entrepreneur Giancarlo Mancino, or select a whisky from our prized collection.
Enchanting days in London with your special someone don’t get much better than this.
Following the latest government announcement, we are delighted to share the news that we will be re-opening from Monday 17 May.
