The world over, Kempinski is a name synonymous with luxurious, stylish hospitality. With lavish properties in the globe’s most desirable destinations including St Moritz, the Seychelles, Doha and Moscow. Founded by Berthold Kempinski in 1897 on strong principles and ethics such as high quality, impeccable service and prestigious, luxurious surroundings, the hotels today retain their superior exclusive status worldwide – and not without reason.
Choosing just a couple of hotels to talk about from the brand’s extensive portfolio is difficult to say the least, but there are a few landmark properties which have earned the brand global recognition for a number of reasons.
Situated in the bustling heart of Berlin, the legendary Hotel Adlon is arguably one of Europe’s most palatial offerings with lavish marble and gold interior adorning the lobby beneath its huge centrepiece – the ornate stained-glass dome. Despite being destroyed during World War II, the property was painstakingly rebuilt and restored to its former regal glory. In stark contrast, Kempinski’s position atop the iconic Palm in Dubai is a slick, modern palace in Arabic-style surrounded by sparkling blue water and stunning white shores. It is joined by the incredible Sunrise hotel in Yanqi Lake near Beijing – a stunning feat of engineering cutting an imposing spherical figure against the backdrop of the still water. These three hotels demonstrate the diversity between Kempinski’s many offerings – but also confirm their consistency in selecting stunning locations and architecture for their hotels. One thing that doesn’t change regardless of which hotel you select, is the service, the quality of food and the attention to detail that goes into providing guests with a memorable stay.
With such a rich Heritage, the reputation of the Kempinski brand often precedes them – and in all ways, these hotels rarely disappoint. World leaders in customer service, cuisine (many hotels boast award-winning restaurants) and luxury hospitality, they’re the perfect choice for a special occasion or once in a lifetime trip, catering for single travellers, corporate parties and couples alike.
No matter what the occasion, location or type of guest, you can rest assured that a stay at a Kempinski hotel is always one to remember.
