1 Hotel Mayfair launches with Bamford Wellness Spa and biophilic design by GA Group

by Megan Whitby | 17 Aug 2023

1 Hotels, the eco-luxury brand and brainchild of Starwood Capital founder Barry Sternlicht, has opened its debut European property in the heart of the UK capital with design by GA Group.

1 Hotel Mayfair has been designed to set a new benchmark for lower-impact luxury in London and adhere to 1 Hotels’ sustainability-minded philosophy that “those that travel the world should also care about it”.

The London location is gearing up to unveil a Bamford Wellness Spa this September, thereby strengthening 1 Hotels’ ongoing six-property-strong partnership with the B Corp spa, skincare and wellbeing brand.

Created by Bamford founder, Lady Carole Bamford, the spa concept is an offshoot of the organic brand’s flagship spa location in the Cotswolds.

Bamford Wellness Spas can also be found in London at the luxury five-star hotel The Berkeley and a standalone location in Brompton Cross.

Guests will also have access to The Field House gym complete with the latest Technogym equipment, including a Universe Wall, and a range of mindful movement and exercise classes.

Located on Berkeley Street and overlooking Green Park, the eight-storey hotel is designed to offer an urban sanctuary for locals and tourists alike.

More than 200 plant species and 1,300 individual plants can be found across 1 Hotel Mayfair, from a 500sq m living wall on its facade to the planting beds in its 137 rooms and 44 suites.

Opting for reconstruction over new construction, 1 Hotel Mayfair was built to BREEAM Excellent standards and completed through utilising 80 per cent of the existing structure.

The hotel is also home to a restaurant helmed by internationally renowned two Michelin-starred chef Tom Sellers, a signature cocktail bar and lounge and a daytime café and evening bar.

The story behind 1 Hotels

As a mission-driven luxury lifestyle hotel brand inspired by nature, 1 Hotels blends sustainable design and architecture, together with understated comfort and high levels of service.

Launched in 2015 by Sternlicht, 1 Hotels upholds this vision by channelling nature through design and culinary partnerships while connecting with the local community and taking sustainable steps to make a difference.

The group's portfolio currently includes nine existing properties in the US as well as one property in China. Meanwhile, its development pipeline includes planned locations in Paris, Melbourne, Crete, Riyadh, Copenhagen and Austin.

In addition to Bamford, the hotel brand has also undertaken wellness partnerships with Anatomy, Higher Dose and VitaHealth.
