London is about to welcome a new jewel to its crown – Raffles London at The OWO. This exquisite destination transcends the ordinary, seamlessly blending the opulent heritage of its storied past with the finest contemporary indulgences. This unique hotel situated in Whitehall is poised to redefine luxury hospitality and captivate the senses of modern tastemakers.

An Opulent Transformation

The Edwardian Old War Office, a building with a legacy as rich as London’s history, has undergone a remarkable transformation. Once bustling with legendary figures like Sir Winston Churchill and Lord Haldane, the building has now been reimagined as Raffles London at The OWO. Opulent staterooms and offices have been reborn as sumptuous guest rooms and suites, each radiating luxury and elegance. The grand ballroom, echoing with tales of the past, stands ready to host unforgettable weddings and events.

Elevating Body and Mind

The allure of Raffles London at The OWO extends beyond its luxurious accommodations. Guests seeking holistic rejuvenation can indulge in Guerlain spa treatments and personalised Pillar Wellness programmes. For gastronomic connoisseurs, the hotel boasts diverse restaurants and bars, each occupying historically significant spaces. From an enchanting speakeasy to restaurants led by the acclaimed Mauro Colagreco, every dining experience is a journey through time and taste.

Steeped in History, Stepping into the Future

The Old War Office building has witnessed the ebb and flow of history, where spies and legends alike once walked its corridors. Ian Fleming, the creative genius behind James Bond, found inspiration within these walls, and iconic scenes from 007 movies have been immortalised on location. This historic site, which housed MI5 and MI6 operations in the 20th century, now stands restored and renewed, welcoming a new era as Raffles London at The OWO – an Epic Stage for Modern Tastemakers.

An Epicentre of Luxury and Exploration

Situated in the heart of Whitehall, Raffles London at The OWO offers more than just indulgence; it grants an unparalleled exploration of the city’s treasures. The vibrant neighbourhood, home to the seat of British power, provides convenient access to Buckingham Palace, St. James’s Park, Westminster, art galleries, theatres, and the vivacious nightlife of Soho and Covent Garden.

The Countdown Begins

Reservations are now open for stays commencing in late September, and the prestigious property is eagerly awaiting to host connoisseurs of luxury. Prepare to embark on a journey like no other, where heritage meets contemporary elegance. Your rendezvous with Raffles London at The OWO awaits. Contact your Personal Assistant or our award-winning luxury lifestyle team today to find out more.
