New ho­tel hon­oured to be spon­sor­ing award

Bath Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

Ho­tel indigo Bath will be a 166-bed­room bou­tique ho­tel lo­cated in the heart of the city cen­tre. The UN­ESCO Her­itage City’s rich ar­chi­tec­tural beauty is the in­spi­ra­tion that is echoed through­out the de­sign of the guest rooms and stylish lounges. More than just a ho­tel, Ho­tel Indigo Bath boasts a gym­na­sium, a pri­vate house with meet­ing room, pri­vate din­ing suite with eight ad­join­ing guest-rooms. One of the most ex­cit­ing fea­tures of the new ho­tel will be its Vault Rooms. Lo­cated un­der­neath the ho­tel, they are an amaz­ing ex­am­ple of his­tor­i­cal ar­chi­tec­ture. Vaults were a com­mon fea­ture of 18th cen­tury build­ings in Bath and Ho­tel Indigo Bath has utilised these as be­d­rooms and are just one of many ref­er­ences to the glo­ri­ous his­tory of Bath. The Bath neigh­bour­hood is also fa­mous in the world of lit­er­a­ture, much of which started with the in­fa­mous Debu­tant Sea­son in Bath, where grand evenings of gam­bling and fri­vol­ity mixed with af­ter­noon tea and whis­pers of ro­man­tic promises ev­i­denced in the ‘ro­mance and mis­chief rooms’ where ab­stract styling meets Ge­or­gian tra­di­tion. Vis­i­tors will find a mod­ern-day twist on an era where gam­bling and in­fi­delity were once com­mon place. Vis­i­tors can also es­cape to the stun­ning ‘lit­er­ary hide­away rooms’ where they will find walls of nov­els from so many of Bath’s fa­mous au­thors. Com­plete with a writer’s desk, these rooms are the per­fect set­ting for guests who wish to lose them­selves in a good book or seek in­spi­ra­tion to cre­ate their own mas­ter­piece. Over­look­ing the stun­ning gar­den-ter­race vis­i­tors will find six gar­den rooms – com­bined with mod­ern de­sign these rooms boast a stun­ning view of the in­ter­nal Ge­or­gian-in­spired court­yard gar­den. Ho­tel Indigo, part of the In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tels Group, aims t be the first branded bou­tique ho­tel con­cept that of­fers trav­ellers an in­spir­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, com­pletely tai­lored to the lo­cal neigh­bour­hood. The firm chose Bath be­cause they say it a place like no other sur­rounded by rolling hills and com­plete with honey-coloured Ge­or­gian ar­chi­tec­ture straight from a Jane Austen novel. A city where past and present cul­tures and his­tory in­ter­twine. Built for plea­sure and re­lax­ation, Bath has been a well­be­ing des­ti­na­tion since Ro­man times. The wa­ters are a big draw, from the an­cient Ro­man Baths and uber mod­ern Ther­mae Bath Spa, to a plethora of spe­cial­ity tea houses and af­ter­noon tea es­tab­lish­ments. They add Bath’s com­pact, vis­i­tor-friendly cen­tre is over­flow­ing with places to eat and drink, and houses some of the finest in­de­pen­dent shops in Bri­tain.
