Skate and Stay package at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel

We’re already at the holiday season and as Oxford Street recently came alive with the glimmering ‘12 Days of Christmas’ lights, the festive spirit seems to have captured the hearts and souls of our nation’s capital. Windows are laden with jovial gifts, the forecast for snow is ever approaching, and Christmas Markets across London are appearing left, right and centre. Here at Your Coffee Break, we believe that the best way to get into the season mind-set is with an age-old Christmas classic pastime: outdoor ice-skating.

Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel – a contemporary retreat set amidst the timeless style of Belgravia Village and located just yards from Knightsbridge’s most fashionable stores, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols – is offering a ‘Stay and Skate’ package which is guaranteed to uplift everyone’s holiday cheer. Situated in a serene London square, the 87-room boutique hotel serves as the perfect establishment to explore the wonders of London, while enjoying superior service and facilities. Having partnered with the Natural History Museum for the third consecutive year, guests receive two skating tickets, including a one night’s accommodation and a full English breakfast, with the ‘Stay and Skate’ combination.

Jumeirah Lowndes London Skate and Stay package

Your Christmas in London can be magical, as you embark upon an adventure within luxurious shopping districts, world-famous museums and galleries, to magnificent parks and renowned theatres, each of which offer a plethora of opportunities to relax and embrace the holiday spirit. After an exciting day exploring the sights and wonders of the city, wrap up warm and get your skates on – taking a short walk from Jumeirah Hotel to the museum – for an unforgettable outdoor experience. While surrounding trees twinkle over the heads of enthusiastic skaters, the spectacular Christmas tree is the centrepiece, completing the enchanting atmosphere.

After the experience of outdoor ice skating, you can later refuel at the Lowndes Bar and Kitchen, boasting a modern British menu with plenty to choose from. If you are more clumsy than graceful on the ice, guests have full access to the facilities at The Peak Health Club & Spa – one of London’s most exclusive health clubs – at the nearby Jumeirah Carlton Tower. Open seven days a week, The Peak Health Club & Spa boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including a fully equipped gym with a stunning view, overlooking the city, an aerobics studio, a golf simulator, a 20-metre indoor stainless steel swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and award-winning Spa to elevate those aches and pains after a busy day.

It is a Christmas tradition for all the ages, and one that is not to be missed this season.
