The Nobu Hotel London Portman Square opened doors to guests

 Monday, December 7, 2020 


The Nobu Hotel London Portman Square recently opened its doors to guests. The hotel is owned and was developed by L+R Hotels; a group renowned for its portfolio of some of the world’s most respected and prestigious hotels and resorts, including Cliveden House, Chewton Glen, Hilton Park Lane and Fairmont Monte Carlo.

The highly anticipated opening marks the third collaboration between L+R Hotels and Nobu Hospitality, following the successful launches of Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay and Nobu Restaurant Monte Carlo, and the 13th hotel for the iconic brand, founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper.

Located on a prominent corner of Marylebone’s Portman Square, the hotel features a signature Nobu Restaurant and Nobu Bar with a year-round terrace, alongside a fitness center and wellness facilities. The hotel will also have a 600-person ballroom, set to launch in 2021. The property takes inspiration from Japanese architectural disciplines and minimalist design, and employs a contemporary approach to both aesthetics and hospitality.

It also utilises a refined color palette influenced by heritage Japanese color combinations and focuses on exceptional craftsmanship, from hand-blown glass chandeliers and bespoke lighting pieces to large scale sculpture and original artworks. Each room and suites by Make Architects echo a distinct character and allure seen in the rest of the hotel.

Set against the backdrop of a subtle, textural palette striking wall prints, lighting and intricate joinery take centre stage in each room, with an abundance of natural light and materials that create a sense of place that is calm, bright and warm. Upon entering the lobby, guests will immediately be struck by a dramatic high ceiling, from which hangs a kinetic sculpture created by award-winning British sculptor, Ivan Black.

The five meter installation features rotating metal fins that cast a subtle effect of light and shade into the room, evoking an initial sense of theatre. Suspended above the reception console is a sculptural cloud statement pendant light created by world-renowned freehand glass blower, Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert. It exemplifies the hotel’s hand-crafted approach to design, and employs traditional glass-blowing techniques to create a one-of-a-kind lighting sculpture.
