Opening in Spring 2017, London's Nobu Hotel Shoreditch Will Be Nobu Hotels' First European Hotel

LONDON, U.K. March 1, 2017 - Opening in June 2017, located in the heart of Londonís artistic quarter, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is the first European hotel from the internationally renowned Nobu Hotels brand. The hotelís 143 guest rooms and 7 suites offer a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of one of the cityís most culturally significant districts, as well as an iconic dining experience at the brand new Nobu Shoreditch restaurant.

Set back from the lively cultural hub of Great Eastern Street, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch offers a dynamic blend of Nobuís signature east-meets-west philosophy and Shoreditchís creative and industrial energy. As well as an exclusive spa and wellness area, guests can take advantage of a series of innovative culinary experiences, specially created for Nobu Shoreditch, available not only in Londonís newest Nobu restaurant, but across the lobby bar, extensive meeting spaces and 24 hour in-room dining.

The contemporary and distinctive design of Nobu Hotel Shoreditch marks it as one of East Londonís most interesting attributes. The materiality of the property references its Shoreditch location and the history of one of Londonís most culturally rich districts.

Giving back to the local area, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch will be opening its stunning pocket garden, creating a public space between the vibrant streets and the calmness of the hotel, offering an oasis in the hectic heart of East London.

Each of the 143 guest rooms exudes refined, relaxed sophistication, linking timeless design with contemporary functionality for the modern traveller. Black joinery contrasts with the exposed concrete structure and soft textiles of the furniture to create an interior that is at once visually appealing to sight and touch. This is juxtaposed with the bright white bathrooms, featuring a walk-in rain shower and stunning custom-designed gold washbasin.

Nobu Hotel Shoreditch also features 7 unique suites overlooking the courtyard and pocket garden from their own private balconies. These dynamic spaces have been meticulously designed to embrace the propertyís distinctive architecture with Japanese aesthetic subtleties.

Inspired by the iconic Nobu aesthetics, the 340m≤ restaurant spaceís sleek wooden finish creates a cool and contemporary environment. Known around the world, Nobu cuisine is an innovative interpretation of Japanese, Peruvian and other South American elements pioneered by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and influenced by his years of studying Japanese cuisine in Tokyo and his extensive travels. Overseen by Executive Chef Greg Seregi, supported by Head Sushi Chef Teruya Noriyoshi, the Nobu Shoreditch menu will feature many of Nobuís timeless dishes bringing culinary innovation and fine dining to East London. Reached via a grand staircase and with space for 240 guests, Nobu Shoreditch is bathed in natural light from the five metre tall glass doors leading out to the charming Nobu Terrace.

Perfect for open air dining, the terrace, which can entertain up to 80 people, is split into four level terraces and available for private functions. Guests can also take advantage of the semi-private dining space overlooking the custom-built, open kitchen. Hosting up to 18 people, this is the perfect spot from which to experience the theatre of the Nobu kitchen. The separate Lobby Bar on the ground floor is also available to both guests and the public, offering an easy-going atmosphere radiating comfort and warmth.

The adaptable Kaijo meeting and event spaces at Nobu Hotel Shoreditch cater to a range of occasions, from family celebrations to business conferences. Boasting an abundance of natural light and a versatility that suits it to all needs, Kaijo can be used as one large space of 180m≤, accommodating 200 people for a cocktail reception or 120 for a banquet, or divided into six separate spaces as required.

Balance and mindfulness is the focus of the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch spa and wellness area, offering a range of relaxation, wellness and beauty services that rejuvenate, revitalise and reenergise. The 24-hour fitness centre offers state of the art facilities for guests, including a personal trainer on request, complimentary water and towels, a stretching area and weights.

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether itís spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies Ė like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy Ė but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
