LA DOLCE VITA’ ARRIVES AT THE BERKELEY AS ROOFTOP GARDEN AND POOL ARE TRANSFORMED FOR THE SUMMER
This summer will see a little bit of Italy arrive in the capital as The Berkeley, Belgravia’s landmark hotel, creates ‘La Dolce Vita’, a lemon tree lined Italian haven on its roof. The hotel’s secluded garden and swimming pool will be home to the sights, tastes, charm and, of course, ‘amore’ of the Amalfi coast including Aperitivo hour complete with Bellinis, Aperol Spritz and Negronis. Sunseekers can visit the rooftop, usually reserved for hotel guests, for a swim; a spot of sunbathing; a bite to eat from a classic Italian menu or experience an indulgent Dolce Vita spa treatment.
This picture-perfect retreat, inspired by some of Italy’s legendary hotels from Il Pellicano to La Sirenuse, will provide a dreamy setting to enjoy the sunshine – citrus yellow and white striped sunbeds, lemon and olive trees, and an abundance of refreshing gelato or Sicilian homemade lemonade. Guests can feast poolside on fritto misto, tricolore salad, pizzetta and arancini, finished off with gelato or limoncello sorbet. As Aperitivo hour approaches, and the sun goes down, the pool and garden will be filled with the aroma and flickers of candles from the ‘elegante’ Italian house of Acqua di Parma.
Those wishing to be pampered can indulge in the La Dolce Vita treatment designed by the spa to invigorate and prepare skin for the summer. Whilst tired feet are soaked with lemon salts, the face is cleansed, toned and revived with a hydrating mask. The body is exfoliated and gently nourished with lemon and rosemary oil from head to toe for beautiful skin and complete relaxation.
