Short stay: Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, Belgravia, London, UK

Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts is widely regarded as one of the most luxurious and innovative hotel brands in the world.

Hidden away in a discrete but central location and housed in a Belgravia mews house, it is worlds apart from the likes of the Jumierah’s famous Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai and has little in common with many other hotels within the brand, but for the group’s consistently keen eye for quality and careful attention to detail.
