Rooms

You’ll find the bedrooms where the former nuns’ living quarters once were. The 44 rooms and suites are tasteful palettes of sage-green, creamy whites, marble, wood and tawny tones. Smooth wooden floors are topped with handwoven rugs, bathrooms glisten with glazed tiles and cult brand Le Labo toiletries and a mini bar provides the urban traveller with a tipple or two.

With nine different categories, the rooms reflect the diversity within the heritage building. Suites have added space where bathtubs reside in windows nooks; and living rooms give added surface area for that morning yoga, reading spot or convivial drinky location. We love the attic rooms, cosseted under the centuries-old wooden roof, plus the light-filled ‘authentic’ rooms have wide terraces, perfect for that pre-prandial vino.
