Visiting London? Stay in the First-Ever Jaguar Suite
Manhattan Jaguar, serving the New York City area has some very exciting news for all of the luxury-minded jetsetters out there. The world's inaugural Jaguar suite will open this September at the 51 Buckingham Gate, in London.
Created by Jaguar and Taj Hotels (two Tata-owned companies), the opulent Jaguar suite adds further distinction to the 80-plus individually-designed Taj Hotel suites and residences. With over 1,800 square feet, the spacious quarters are cloaked in details inspired by both classic Jaguars such as the E-type to more contemporary, state-of-the-art models such as the C-X16 concept.
All details, from the specially-commissioned auto-inspired artwork and displays to the rich textiles borrowed directly from Jaguar cars (i.e., buttery leathers, contemporary-looking metals, and high-gloss veneers) have been overseen by the Jaguar Design Director and aesthetic genius, Ian Callum. The result is extraordinary...definitely something to email home about.
In describing the new Jaguar suite on their blog, 51 Buckingham Gate writes, "The Jaguar experience starts subtly at the door, with sleek wood paneling greeting guests on arrival and Jaguar damask lining the bedroom walls...Small Jaguar wave motifs and Jaguar trapeze detailing accompany an array of carefully selected collector's items that adorn the suit and will be a familiar site to those who know and love these luxury motoring masterpieces."1
"Subtle", yes...maybe at the entrance. But, the two-bedroom Jaguar suite is clearly a product of well, Jaguar design. Among the more gripping elements, [Dealer] would like to call attention to are: marble-floored walk -in showers, oversized baths, large 10-seat dining area, high-tech, gloss-black kitchen, and sleek fireplace reminiscent of the rear window of a Jaguar. Of course, it also comes with leading-edge electronics, including a mesmerizing sound system, Blu-ray players, and TVs.
