Hotel Indigo in Bath, the UK, Offers Unique Underground Vault Rooms

News IHG Hotels and Resorts is always ready to offer something unusual and original to its guests. Recently, the famous hotelier celebrated the opening of its 18th hotel in the UK. Operating under the Hotel Indigo brand, the new hotel in Bath is a highly anticipated project due to its unusual location and one-of-a-kind rooms.

The Hotel Indigo Bath is open in a Grade I listed building with a luxurious honey-colored terrace. Built in the 18th century, the mansion welcomed many prominent personalities such as Sir Walter Scott, the Duke of York, and William Wilberforce. Today, tourists have a chance to stay at the new 166-room hotel that embraces the heritage of this place.

Bath has always been a favorite destination for Brits. The city is famous for its rich cultural heritage. The settlement has been a popular destination since ancient times when Roman baths were located here. Moreover, Bath is the location of the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain. Numerous galleries, museums, shops, and restaurants make it a perfect vacation destination. Taking into consideration the rich history and culture of the city, IHG decided that Hotel Indigo is a perfect match as this hotel brand is famous for its bright personality, and each property has a unique design.

The design team was inspired by the Georgian architecture of the building and the history of the area. The result of their work is an interesting combination of new and old. The hotel features rooms of five types, and each type was inspired by a different neighborhood of Bath. For example, “Romance & Mischief” rooms were inspired by the Debutant Season in Bath. Gambling, romance, and flirting are reflected in red velvet furnishings, dark green wooden panels, card tables, and artworks. Garden type rooms have a modern design with lots of light. These rooms are located in the newly built extension of the building.

Perhaps, Underground Vault rooms will get the most attention. These suites are located in the 18th-century vaults and feature stone ceiling typical for vaults, black timber furniture, soft lighting, and underfloor heating. Guests preferring a cozy and more intimate setting will like “Literary Hideaway” rooms inspired by the rich literary heritage of Bath. Finally, “Georgian Architecture” rooms look like a grand Georgian residence and copy such traditional elements of this style as geometric patterns, high ceilings, and deep colors.
