Dukes London unveils summer package
London, June 5, 2011
Dukes London, a luxury boutique hotel owned by Dubai-based Seven Tides, has launched a special summer offer for tourists.
The hotel is offering a bespoke tour of the Spencer House, the ancestral home of Princess Diana, in its new summer package.
“Dukes London is very popular with visitors from the Gulf. Quite apart from being a private, quintessential five-star boutique hotel, it is our location that is hard to beat. Dukes is literally next-door to Spencer House,” said Debrah Dhugga, general manager of the hotel.
Built between 1756 and 1766 for the first Earl Spencer, Spencer House includes stunning examples of both classical and neo-classical architecture, being the first London property with interiors featuring accurate Greek detail.
“Our guests can explore the family home of Princess Diana, and marvel at the 18th century architecture of a palace which is world-renowned,” added Dhugga.
“There is a great affinity and strong historical and political ties between the Kings and Sheikhs of the Arabian Gulf and the British Royal family. Naturally visitors want easy access to Green Park and Pall Mall, to relive the tradition, pomp and ceremony as well as the wild celebrations after ‘first kiss’ on the balcony of Buckingham Palace,” added Dhugga.
The Dukes London Spencer House package comprises overnight accommodation in a luxurious guestroom along with English breakfast and Spencer House tour tickets for two, including a Souvenir Guide. Priced at $460, the offer is based on double-occupancy and is available on any Saturday from June.
In addition, after visiting Spencer house, lucky guests staying at Dukes London during the Wimbledon, can be back in time to enjoy a special promotion in the hotel’s Marlborough Suite.
For $90 per person, guests can follow all the on-court action of the world’s oldest tennis tournament from 2pm on Saturday July 2-3, complete with afternoon tea, scones with strawberries, clotted cream and two glasses of Perrier-Jouet, from the Champagne region of France.-TradeArabia News Service
