Get a glimpse inside the hotel’s elegant aesthetic and debut of Somni – one of the most lauded restaurant openings of the year.

The SLS Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Beverly Hills has announced the completion of a comprehensive redesign of the rooms and guest experience ahead of its decade milestone in November 2018.

The newly reimagined look, which includes all 234 guest rooms and 63 suites, continues to embrace the property’s original identity of elegance and whimsy.

The new look features a lighter palette and character that speaks to the brighter and more refined disposition of the destination, alongside the latest in technology and modern comforts. As well as sleek design, the property also features innovated culinary and cocktail experiences to round out SLS Beverly Hills’ ten-year evolution.

“With a fresh energy, vibrant culture and glamorous social scene, Los Angeles is a key destination for Global Explorers and SLS Beverly Hills is in the centre of one its most iconic neighbourhoods,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection.

Unique design
The rooms redesign by Dakota Development, Muzeo and Avenue Interior Design brings a fresh perspective to modern luxury, while staying true to the iconic touches and tradition-defying elements inherent to the flagship SLS Hotel.

Rooms feature signature oversized mirror panels and whimsical accents remain, juxtaposed with white oak, Carrara marble, and textural neutral fabrics that add to the room’s overall lighter and brighter profile.. A vibrant carpet sets the stage for a plush, welcoming stay while oversized abstract prints and mirror-lined walls add to the ambience.

The renovation features two new suite categories: the Style Suite and the Storyseeker Suite, featuring distinct private bedroom and living areas. The palatial, 1900 square-foot Presidential Suiteboasts four separate rooms including an expansive bedroom with an oversized closet, powder room, soaking tub, and experience rain shower; a comfortable study filled with a collection of L.A.-centric art and plenty more.

On the table
In addition to its avant-garde design, the SLS Beverly Hills remains the home of award-winning culinary offerings that challenge and redefine tradition. Culinary Director Chef José Andrés—recipient of the 2018 James Beard “Humanitarian of the Year” award—and Creative Director Chef Aitor Zabala recently debuted the much anticipated Somni: a critically lauded 10-seat chef’s counter.

Somni features an evolving, 20-plus course tasting menu, blending experimental style with traditional and modern techniques. The exhibition kitchen space, designed without any corners, mimics the hotel’s overall refreshed aesthetic, incorporating light oak and marble accented with multi-colored animal bust sculptures by Pop Surrealist artist Okuda San Miguel.
