Raffles London to open in September

Raffles London at The OWO, the first Raffles hotel to launch in the UK, is set to open its door on September 29, 2023.

A momentous addition to the Raffles Hotels & Resorts portfolio, Raffles London at The OWO is the centrepiece of a landmark transformation of Britain’s Old War Office.

Developed in partnership between the Hinduja Group and Accor, the Old War Office has been thoughtfully restored to its former glory – a project that is a part of the revival of Britain’s heritage features.

The most historically significant areas of the building are the Heritage Suites, former offices of influential political and military leaders including Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and Sir Richard Haldane.

Raffles London at The OWO will open with 120 rooms and suites and three unique dining experiences by acclaimed chef Mauro Colagreco alongside the spectacular Guerlain Spa and Pillar Wellbeing.

The OWO will also be home to 85 Residences by Raffles and a collection of independent restaurants drawn from dynamic culinary hubs across the globe.

The Guerlain Spa at Raffles London featuring beauty and wellness experts Guerlain and health club by movement specialists Pillar Wellbeing comprising an extensive gym and movement studio, striking 20m swimming pool, complete with vitality pool.

“I am delighted to announce the highly awaited opening of The OWO this September. Along with Raffles London at The OWO, we hope to create a legacy that is both timeless and unsurpassed,” said Sanjay Hinduja from Hinduja Group.

“Everyone at Accor feels honoured and privileged to be part of this historic project that has surpassed all expectations – truly a legend in the making and possibly the most awe-inspiring hotel on the planet. Together with the Hinduja family, we proudly invite locals and travellers alike to experience this extraordinary hotel as well as the authenticity and graciousness of Raffles, one of our most prestigious brands in one of the world’s greatest cities,” said Seebastien Bazin, Accor Chairman & CEO.

“Raffles seeks out astonishing settings for each of its properties, and Raffles London at The OWO offers this generously. The rich heritage of the city, as well as the Old War Office building, make London a natural home for the Raffles brand, which has long been synonymous with legendary service, glamour, art, and storied destinations,” added Omer Acar, CEO of Raffles and Orient Express, Accor.
