The Luxury The swank Philippe Starck-designed Sanderson in London’s West End blends landmark 1950s architecture with modern whimsy. Its 150 rooms forgo interior walls, instead sporting gauzy curtains and peekaboo glass bathrooms. Guests can dine on Zak Pelaccio’s Malay fusion cuisine at Suka or savor a specialty martini (like the effervescent Gin Spring Thing) at either of two chic bars. The 10,000-square-foot Agua Spa evokes a Roman bathhouse, while the central courtyard garden provides a welcome escape from London’s busy streets.
The Value Just for our readers through September 4, Sanderson is offering 25 percent off regular room rates (bringing them to as low as $299/night), breakfast for two daily, and 15 percent off select treatments, such as the agua aromatherapy massage, at Agua Spa.
The Catch Rooms tend to book well in advance, so anticipate limited availability for this package in June.
