September 2010 saw the opening of Lotte Hotel Moscow, part of the Lotte Hotels & Resorts group. Founded in South Korea in 1979, the group manages eleven hotels in Asia and lays claim to be the largest operator in the region. Lotte Hotel Moscow, the groupâs first hotel project in Europe, is located at the intersection of Novinsky Boulevard and New Arbat, next to the Lotte Plaza retail complex. The hotel offers 300 rooms, including 61 suites, of which the Royal Suite, occupying 490 m2, is unprecedented for Russia.
Striving to express fully the harmonious combination of Asian luxury and European elegant functionality, Lotte Hotels & Resorts invited the world-famous design company HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates to join its team.
The Royal Suite in Moscow occupies an area of 490 m2 and combines bedroom, bathroom with sauna, sitting room, conference hall, dining room, study, office and guest room. The suite is designed in a contemporary interpretation of the traditional eastern style, with classical Korean trends in architecture complemented by western aesthetic designer solutions. The colour range in the suite is soft and calming, with a predominance of creams and gold hues, subtly contrasting with brown shades. A sense of luxury is created thanks to unique, hand-made silk and woollen rugs, the very highest quality in Italian furniture, designed especially for the hotel, natural silk fabrics and refined gold candelabras. The bathroom interior contains items made to individual order and reflects the overall style of the suite, complementing it with honey shades of onyx and granite. The bathroom is fitted with a jacuzzi and opens up a picturesque vista over the city.
When guests check into the suite, the hotel dedicates a special team of professionals, who ensure the comfort and respond instantly to the every wish of the guests.
The Royal Suite has hosted heads of state, political figures, high-ranking diplomats, celebrities and simply those who value luxury and comfort. One of the hotelâs advantages is its ability to cater for the large number of people who usually accompany a guest on a visit of national significance.
Moscowâs Royal Suite designed by HBA has total investment into the project over USD 5 million.
