The LaLiT London - Luxury Hotel in London

Indian hospitality meets British tradition in a grand former school by Tower Bridge, London

In the early-19th century, this stately red brick building in central London started life as St. Olave’s Grammar School. Today, school lessons have been swapped for city breaks, following a careful transformation into a boutique hotel. From its warm welcome to stylish interiors, The LaLiT London shows that among luxury retreats, it comes top of the class.

Past and present, east and west, all mingle at The LaLiT London. The exterior spells neo-baroque British opulence. Inside, rich colours and contemporary furnishings proudly evoke this boutique hotel brand’s Indian origins. The rooms and suites echo this fusion of cultures, with original features balanced with Indian artworks commissioned exclusively for The LaLiT London. While at Rejuve spa, western therapies fuse with eastern traditions for a wonderfully relaxing experience. Elsewhere, the hotel twists its studious heritage into something entirely fresh – from a school hall turned stylish Pan-Indian restaurant, to the Teacher’s Room cocktail bar.

Taking a prime position on Thames’s south bank, The LaLiT London is immersed in city life. To the left, the Shard soars up over the rooftops, and Borough Market bustles with boutiques and bars. Further along the riverside walk you’ll find the Globe Theatre and Tate Modern. While crossing the river over means strolling over historic Tower Bridge. The LaLiT London puts it all at your feet.

This is school dining with a difference. At The LaLiT London, the cavernous assembly hall has been transformed into Baluchi at The Great Hall, serving a contemporary take on traditional regional Indian cuisine. At one end, the Naanery prepares freshly baked breads in the tandoor oven. While among the peacock blue heights of The Gallery, the table is set for afternoon tea. After dark, an energetic buzz draws you to the Teacher’s Room for a cocktail. Or there’s the plush armchairs, baroque features and fine cognacs to discover in the Headmaster’s Room.

Baluchi

Cuisine type: Indian

Meals served: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Set in the historic Grade II listed former St. Olave Grammar School assembly hall- Baluchi strives to serve a contemporary take on impeccably executed Indian dishes.
