Shaken or stirred at Jumeirah Carlton Tower.
With the Olympics now behind us, London hotels are looking for other events to base their packages on. And what do you know… this year also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the man with the golden gun - Bond…James Bond.
To celebrate the occasion, the 5 star Jumeirah Carlton Tower has created not one but two packages, Shaken or Stirred. Both packages will run at the Knightsbridge hotel for the whole of October and November, which ties in with the release of the new James Bond movie, Skyfall.
The Shaken package has been created to let guests experience what it’s like to live like Bond. The package includes one night in the hotel’s Royal Suite, return airport transfers (in an Aston Martin, of course!) and a bartender to fix you a martini, definitely shaken not stirred! It also comprises dinner in the Rib Room & Restaurant, which we’ve already featured for its funky festive offers, followed by another martini before bed, a massage in The Peak Health Club & Spa and full English breakfast.
But before getting too excited, you may want to check out the spy (high) price - £8,616 per room per night! I bet Bond never had to pay those prices…
For a cheaper option guests might want to check out the Stirred package from just £320 per room, per night depending on which room you choose. The Stirred package includes a martini, access to the spa and full English breakfast. Not exactly the same level as the Shaken package but not everyone can be James Bond now, can they?
