International luxury property operator the Leeu Collection is to open a 100-bedroom 5-star hotel in London after acquiring its first foothold in the capital, a former office building in Fitzrovia in the West End. The property is due to open in 2019.
CEO Carrie Wicks said: “The purchase of a London property is an exciting development for us as it marks the first acquisition for the group in a major city, but it will certainly not be the last.
“Leeu Collection continues to seek hotel opportunities in key locations around the world that reflect our ethos of creating unrivalled escapes for discerning guests”.
The group is headed by Analjit Singh, known as BAS, a partner in the award-winning company Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines, and includes three 5-star boutique properties in South Africa’s scenic wine country.
The collection’s first addition outside South Africa was Linthwaite House, a 30-room boutique hotel in landscaped gardens overlooking Lake Windermere in the Lake District.
The second is Leeu Villa Querce in Florence, Italy, a 70-plus room luxury hotel and gardens set to open in 2021.
