Between Vegan Oktoberfest, meatless fish and chips, and plant-based pubs, you probably thought London’s vegan scene had hit its peak. Well, brace yourself because the Hilton has just opened the capital’s very first all-vegan luxury suite in its Bankside hotel and everyone is talking about it.
Wondering what makes a hotel suite vegan? The answer is simple — everything in the room (and we mean everything) is plant-based and made from the finest natural materials.
Let’s start with the seats, headboard, and cushions — they’re all made from pineapple leaves. The pillows? That’s buckwheat at work. And the lush, stone-grey floor is renewable bamboo, while the carpets are 100% organic cotton.
But that’s not all.
The team at the Hilton is so committed to the vegan cause that the room is cleaned only with animal-friendly products and the bedding is washed in eco-friendly detergent.
Head into the bathroom and you’ll find it’s fully stocked with the best of the best vegan toiletries. And crack open the mini bar and you’ll be able to work your way through, yes, you guessed it… delicious 100% plant-based treats, like vegan-friendly nuts, energy balls, and chocolate bars.
And sure, nibbles are all well and good, but what happens if you want a good feed without leaving the comfort of your suite? Don’t worry, the Hilton has got your back.
The in-room dining menu is not just plant-based, it’s also incredible. Mouth-watering vegan waffles with syrup and hash browns are featured on the breakfast menu, while the likes of capsicum, tomato, red onion, and artichoke pizza with rocket pesto, and Kerela-spiced cauliflower steak with millet tabbouleh are just some of the dinner options you can choose from. Are you drooling yet?
Hilton’s latest offering may be a vegan suite, but it’s also all about luxury. Book a stay here and you’re guaranteed the ultimate urban, five-star experience. That means 250 thread count sheets, a super-comfy king-sized bed, a separate living room area with HD channels, in-room movies, and loads more.
Ready to see what all the fuss is about? The Hilton Bankside’s vegan suite is now open for reservations. Secure a couple of nights and prepare for the vegan staycation of your dreams.
