Member of the Week | The Hari

A luxury five-star hotel in the heart of Belgravia, London.

Welcome to The Hari, a luxury five-star hotel in the heart of the quintessentially British neighbourhood of Belgravia, London. Moments from Harrods and the high-end shops of Knightsbridge, The Hari is also within walking distance of the world-famous Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall, as well as the city’s most famous museums.

The first hotel of The Hari brand, The Hari brings together a long heritage of hospitality and service bestowed by owners, the Harilela family. The brand itself stands for the people and the history behind it, while respecting the family’s values. As a result, the hotel is now renowned for impeccable and personalised service and always strives to create exceptional guest experiences by paying meticulous attention to every detail, no matter how small.

Designed by the acclaimed British designer Tara Bernerd, The Hari is a mix of plush velvet upholstery, marble bathrooms, contemporary art and cosy furnishings. All 85 designer bedrooms, of which 14 are luxury suites, are designed to make every stay as relaxing as possible. Social spaces within the hotel include the stylish yet intimate Hari Bar and the beautiful garden terrace, which, complete with retractable roof, transforms from an elegant suntrap on warm days to a cosy retreat in winter.

The Hari is also home to Italian restaurant, il Pampero, which prides itself on serving exceptional homemade cuisine under the expert eye of Executive Chef, Claudio Covino. Born in Rome, Claudio has lived in London for many years, mastering the art of combining traditional Italian recipes with creative and contemporary techniques. As well as serving the great classics, he loves to experiment and find new proposals to amaze his guests, working with the best Italian suppliers to source everything directly from its place of origin. Signature dishes include fresh spaghetti-like pasta prepared in a parmesan wheel, sea bream cooked in sea salt, and tiramisu served chef style.

And this is just the beginning for The Hari and the brand. Bringing together unique concepts and creative collaborations that illuminate the Harilelas’ passion for service, The Hari London is the first step of a globetrotting journey that will explore the world. The next stop will be the launch of a sister hotel in Hong Kong in 2020.
