The Jaguar Suite
April 30, 2013

Fancy a bit of luxury on your next trip to London? Checkout the beautiful Jaguar Suite in the 51 Buckingham Gate owned by Taj Hotels.

Overseen by Jaguar’s in house design director Ian Callum, the entire space has been decked out as a ‘Jaguar experience’. Using materials taken from the cars, such as leather, metal and high gloss veneer, Taj’s boutique London hotel now nods to the legacy and future vision of Jaguar’s timeless style.

The Jaguar experience starts at the door, with wood panelling on arrival and Jaguar damask lining the bedroom walls. Intriguing design features are evident throughout, from the minimalistic clean-fuel fireplace referencing the shape of the brand’s hallmark rear window to the finest leather that lines the cars, ebony veneer doors and custom-made Jaguar wallpaper.

If that’s not enough luxury for you the Suite also comes with its own Butler and Chauffeur driven Jaguar for your length of stay!

Small Jaguar wave motifs and Jaguar trapeze detailing accompany an array of carefully selected collector’s items that adorn the suite and will be familiar sights to those who know and love these luxury motoring masterpieces.

Opened in September 2011, the Jaguar Suite at Taj Hotels 51 Buckingham Gate is part of the same brand that owns the next door Crowne Plaza London St James.

Measuring 170 square meters, the suite contains two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a kitchen and living and dining areas.

The two bedrooms are fitted with super-king sized beds with Italian leather headboards, soft carpets, state-of-the-art fittings, a 32 inch wall mounted television and custom-made wallpaper with subtle Jaguar motifs. The en-suite bathrooms feature top-end design with adaptable mood lighting, marble floored walk-in showers and oversized baths.

The spacious yet homely living room has comfortable sofas and large windows with a courtyard-facing balcony, creating a light and airy ambience. One wall is covered in Italian leather, embedded with a 42 inch television and the modern and minimalist clean-fuel fireplace, referencing the rear windows of the cars to complete the sophisticated look. The suite offers the best in sound systems (Denon and Crestron), with Blu-ray DVD player, iPod docking station and Sonance ceiling speakers throughout.
