7 Things Luxury Travellers Love


London has a lot to offer within the elite luxury sphere.

Travellers can rest assured that the city is well-equipped to treat visitors from their arrival up until their departure, with everything from VIP chauffeur services to luxury shopping, Montcalm spa services to luxury entertainment.

You won't leave London feeling unsatisfied, that is for sure!

Luxury Airport Transportation

You don't need to take a regular black cab or Uber from the airport or train station to your Montcalm Luxury Hotel in London.

Instead, book a vehicle to pick you up at the airport or train station. You’ll feel safe knowing that the professional chauffeur service you choose will have a good knowledge of the routes around the city. This will help prevent you from getting stuck in traffic and get you settled into your hotel as quickly and efficiently as possible.

You can choose any car that suits your needs. The chauffeur will monitor your flight, so if you arrive late or early, there is no need to communicate regarding your whereabouts. They will also assist you with the luggage, allowing you to relax after a long flight.

What car suits your fancy? On offer are Rolls-Royce Ghosts, stretch limousines, Rolls-Royce Cullinans, Rolls-Royce Phantoms, Mercedes 2500s, Range Rovers, Teslas, and more. In some cases, pick-up services are included in your London hotel packages, so make sure you review the details of your deal before booking another service.

Shopping Spots

Take a stroll down Bond Street, a beautiful location known for its exclusive brands.

There you will find unique jewellery, art and one-of-a-kind antiques. If you're a fan of designer clothes, you will be happy to find Burberry, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co (to name a few).

If you prefer strolling through shopping malls, check out London's Dover Street Market and Harrods. The former is a six-storey fashion store selling clothing from labels like Alexandra McQueen, Comme des Garcons and Saint Laurent. It's an industrial space with concrete floors and Portaloo dressing rooms.

Harrods was established in 1849 and covered seven floors and 330 departments. The heritage retailer offers gourmet food, high-class fashion, ultimate homeware, and upscale technology. The area also has fabulous restaurants and unique services. In the evening, the store is decorated with 11,500 light bulbs, making it a shopping destination that you do not want to miss out on.

Afternoon Tea

Leaving London without getting to enjoy afternoon tea is a big no-no!

The tradition was started by the wonderful Duchess of Bedford in 1840. Living in a household with late dinners, she felt hungry around 4PM and as such, requested tea and small treats like cookies and sandwiches.

She didn't want to sit there alone, so she began inviting friends for afternoon tea. Today, afternoon tea is served at several 5 star hotels and restaurants in London, making it a truly mainstream treat.

The Montcalm luxury hotel London offers traditional afternoon tea, with the possibility of champagne. Cheers to that!

Montcalm Royal London Amenities

Enjoy a stay at the Montcalm Luxury hotel in London. Here, you can take advantage of all the available amenities, including their spa.

They take the practices of Ayurveda seriously, effectively taking care of your mind and body. This is an especially relaxing spa treatment after a day spent exploring the bustling city.

The spa facilities are a place of tranquillity and calm. They offer marine-based body face and massage rituals. Moreover, they have an eight-seat sauna, six-seat steam room, eight-meter swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. It's a package that's difficult to say no to.

Other treatments on offer include Thalgo face and body rituals. Expect 30 minutes of pure bliss, instant relaxation and lasting results.

City holidays are usually fueled by guided tours and antique art, whereas beach vacations are about indulging in laziness. Make your city vacation more fun by indulging in relaxation and treating yourself.

After a relaxing spa treatment, head out to the luxury restaurants and bars that the Montcalm has to offer. You have three fantastic culinary options. The first one is Burdock -  a brand-new city café, bar and restaurant located in Finsbury Square.

Aviary is your second option. It is a stunning rooftop restaurant and terrace bar. It's ideal for a young crowd, and a must if the weather allows for it. Your third option is the Long Arm Pub – which as the name indicates, is a pub and brewery.

Private Helicopter Ride

Take a break from your 5 star hotels in London and go for an exhilarating helicopter ride. It is a magical 20-minute ride that you will never forget, and a great way to experience London. You get to admire the city from its every angle, and it is sure to exceed your every expectation.

Landmarks that tend to be included in tours are Coronation Regalia, Sovereign's Scepter, Imperial Crown of India and White Tower. These are all magical monuments that you might not run into on a London shopping spree or running between spa treatments.

Beauty Salon

Take some time to relax at a beauty salon.

A favourite among many luxury travellers is Harrods. The retailer is also the home of Urban Retreat, the ultimate beauty salon. It covers 22,000 ft and offers lavish treatments, grooming services and premium retail items.

You can also create a personal and genuinely original signature perfume through a personal consultation on the fifth floor. Urban Retreat also has a new flagship location at the White House in London.

Theatre Tickets

No trip to London would be complete without a theatrical experience. Currently, luxury travellers can enjoy the Lion King, Wicked, the Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Mamma Mia!,  the Book of Mormon, Dear Evan Hansen, The Tina Turner Musical, and many more.

There are various price points and theatres and, if in doubt, ask your concierge what and where the best shows are. They're bound to ensure that your standards are met!

Do this on the last night of your trip, because there's nothing quite like sipping on champagne and watching a magnificent performance.
