Established in 1978, Blakes Hotel is regarded as the world’s first luxury boutique hotel. Located in the desirable Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the Blakes offers uncompromising discretion and privacy. Upon entering one of Blakes’ uniquely designed suites, guests enjoyed Kiki de Montparnasse silk pyjamas in their king-sized bed. A bespoke silk eyemask, hand embroidered with “Behind Closed Doors,” inspired by the emblematic neon sign at Blakes, was included in each room. A further selection of Kiki de Montparnasse luxury intimate accessories were available for guests with exploration, liberation, and seduction in mind. To create some heat and fill the room with a scent of Lotus, a Candle with natural wax that melted into a warm massage oil. Gold personalized engraved handcuffs, a leather hand-braided whip, and a double-sided tickler were also included.
For the ultimate do not disturb experience, breakfast, lunch and dinner could be served in-room, with unlimited room service. More provocative elements included aphrodisiacs - oysters, chocolate pastries crafted by Blakes’ head chefs, and a Laurent Perrier Champagne Jeroboam. Guests could enjoy a slow morning thanks to a late check-out.
