For a stay with a royal touch (with a price to match) and steeped in Bavarian tradition Langham Hotels and Resorts has opened its residence facing the imperial estate of Nymphenburg Palace in Munich.
The two-year restoration of the manor is on the grounds of the Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory which has been producing high-quality handmade porcelain since the 1700s.
Naturally, the residence which has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, three living rooms, dining room, a fully-equipped kitchen, fitness centre, home cinema and wine cellar, features curated pieces from the Nymphenburg workshop.
The Royal Bavarian Spa has a traditional blue-and-white colour scheme with 24-carat gold detailing hand-painted views of royal Bavarian castles such as Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau and Herrenchiemsee.
From the dining room on the ground floor, guests enjoy a direct view over the estate to Nymphenburg Palace. The dining table, which seats up to 12, is framed by two sculptures by Damien Hirst and has a Lindsey Adelman chandelier of brushed gold combined with Nymphenburg porcelain.
The living room on the floor above has wall-to-wall shelves displaying a curated collection of Nymphenburg porcelain pieces and the private terrace sits among a landscaped garden with enough room to seat extra 100 guests.
Langham Hospitality Group chief executive Stefan Leser says the residence will provide the amenities of a luxury hotel stay with the personalised touches of a private home.
“Our guests will have ample space, privacy and exclusivity, alongside the full complement of The Langham signature services in a beautiful regal setting,” he says.
Behind the residence is Munich-based interior design firm Mang Mauritz Design. Lighting design by Lichtkompetenz from Zurich includes wall fixtures in the shape of flowers and crystal chandeliers in the bedroom ceilings.
Rooms are furnished by Walter Knoll and Donghia with Jim Thompson textiles, Frette bedlinen and Jane Kath silk carpets.
The residence sleeps eight and costs from €35,000 Euro ($57,000) a night.
