Limited opening next month
Last night’s unveiling of the new JM logo for the Journal (reported in the previous post) was one of the first events held at the new Savoy Palace hotel.
According to well informed sources the monstrous building will receive its first guests in July, after missing its latest reported deadline this month. Various other deadlines were missed during the course of 2018, and it is not clear how much of the facility will open immediately. Some reports say half, others two thirds, but clearly not all the 309 rooms and 43 suites will be occupied – unless guests are happy with a portaloo on their balcony.
The hotel boasts a 2300 m2 spa, five swimming pools (including two infinity pools on top of the building), five restaurants, eight bars and conference rooms with a capacity of up to 1000 people. It also offers a “presidential suite” with its own pool.
