YTL HOTELS ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF MONKEY ISLAND ESTATE, BRAY-ON-THAMES
YTL Hotels has announced the official opening of Monkey Island Estate, Bray-on-Thames. The island, with its intriguing history dating back 800 years, has been the haunt of monks, monarchs, aristocrats and writers alike. Visitors from London and beyond will be transported to their own private countryside escape steeped in stylish yet laidback luxury.
Set across seven acres, the restored Monkey Island Estate boasts both a striking white-bricked Pavilion and Temple building surrounded by beautiful English country gardens with picturesque views of the River Thames. The landscape is a beautiful combination of mature trees, shrubs and a huge variety of British plants to create a magical journey and sense of place, where guests can enjoy an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city living.
The décor of Monkey Island will juxtapose timeless glamour and traditional features with a modern and relaxed countryside style, creating a unique blend of past and present. Award-winning New York-based design studio Champalimaud is responsible for the charming design of the 41 bedrooms and suites. Champalimaud also orchestrated the distinctive interiors of YTL’s first British property, The Gainsborough Bath Spa, and most recently the charming refurbishment of The Academy, Bloomsbury.
