Eclectic elegance at Francis Hotel Bath
7/20/11Francis Hotel's history, character and central location make it the perfect candidate to join the "Memorable" MGallery Collection, making it the second MGallery in the United Kingdom.
Francis Hotel's history, character and central location make it the perfect candidate to join the "Memorable" MGallery Collection, making it the second MGallery in the United Kingdom. The unique and distinctive hotel occupies seven of the original 18th century townhouses that make up the south side of the centrally located Queen Square in Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage city. Following a £6 million refurbishment, the townhouses have been fully renovated in keeping with the style of the Regency period, offering an eclectic edge that truly reflects the vibrancy, exuberance and liberation of this time. Karen Bassett, the hotel's general manager, sees this renaissance as an extraordinary opportunity: "It's fantastic that the Francis Hotel is being honoured in this way and being brought back to the impeccable standard of its heyday. We're very excited about the refurbishment and look forward to welcoming guests to experience our beautiful new hotel." The interior of the hotel, with its bold, vivid colours, offers 98 elegantly decorated rooms with a blend of traditional and contemporary furniture that fits perfectly with the personality of the hotel. Some of which are equipped with a four-poster bed and offer an unparalleled view of the city of Bath. Treasure your stay at Francis Hotel with an exclusive journey in a horse and carriage around the magnificence of Bath, whilst enjoying champagne and strawberries. Visit the famous architectural delights with a private tour guide and end the tour taking Afternoon Tea in the elegant Pump Rooms.

Opening Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua
6/13/13The newest member of the MGallery collection – Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua
Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua opens as Bali’s second upscale resort in the MGallery Collection. Amarterra, which comes from the words “Amarta” which means water and “Terra” meaning earth, reflects how these two elements combine to allow sophisticated guests - from honeymooners to business and leisure travellers - to rest and relax amongst Bali’s renowned natural surroundings. The traditional architecture and designs are influenced by the 13th century Majapahit Kingdom when Javanese culture had a strong influence in Bali. Guests will experience this enchanted concept from the moment they arrive at the splendid Chandra Suriya Gate, a symbol of harmonious life, before entering through to the inspirational villas. With just 39 villas – from one, two and three bedroom villas - each is designed to become a tranquil haven for full relaxation. Artfully crafted with richly-textured materials, the villas’ décor is accentuated by intricate furnishings and colourful finishes. The villas are equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment systems, open lounges, a dining area, and private swimming pool and gazebo, plus luxurious bathroom for guests to enjoy a delightful soak.

Two new establishments in Thailand
3/10/10The MGallery collection, already boasting the prestigious VIE Hotel in Bangkok, has added two new resort hotels, the Veranda Resort & Spa Hua Hin and Veranda High Resort Chiang Mai, to its portfolio.
The MGallery collection, already boasting the prestigious VIE Hotel in Bangkok, has added two new resort hotels, the Veranda Resort & Spa Hua Hin and Veranda High Resort Chiang Mai, to its portfolio. The Veranda Resort & Spa Hua Hin, with its modern Asian architecture, enjoys a magnificent seaside location close to the traditional resort destinations of Cha Am and Hua Hin, frequented by the Thai aristocracy since the start of the century. Its 118 rooms and 9 villas offer a resolutely modern layout which capitalises on the hotel's surroundings and offers guests bright and airy spaces, some of them open air. The Veranda has two restaurants: the "Dining room" restaurant has a menu of Thai and western dishes which it serves daily. The "I Sea" waterfront restaurant will offer modern local cuisine with a seafood base. In addition to its cuisine, the hotel has a spa, swimming pool, 2 bars and a vast range of activities to make sure your stay is a memorable one. In the north of Thailand, Chiang Mai, a city rich in heritage, is today still known as the Capital of the Lanna Kingdom which was founded in the 13th century by King Mengrai. A few kilometres from the city of Chiang Mai, the Veranda High Resort Chiang Mai hotel is a veritable retreat in the heart of the mountains. Although of a resolutely modern design, the hotel has taken its inspiration from its natural surroundings. Separated from the outside world by a wall of the old city of Chiang Mai, the hotel is a peaceful haven, ideal for a relaxing stay in the heart of the surrounding mountains. Modern and traditional oriental styles come together to offer guests a taste of the different facets of Lanna's rich culture in a peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With its own spa, pool, fitness centre, library, meeting rooms and a myriad of cultural activities, guests can travel without leaving Chiang Mai. And the Veranda High Resort Chiang Mai has a unique, intense character which subtly draws on the "rich simplicity" of its surrounding landscape.
