The Hilton Bournemouth Opening

Just before I left for Japan I was very kindly invited for the opening of the Hilton Hotel in Bournemouth. Situated a mere 5 minute walk from Bournemouth beach, the new Hilton hotel is alive with quirk, character and exciting detail in this picturesque location on the South Coast.

The new Hilton hotel also features the UK's first Schpoons & Forx restaurant, created and overseen by television personality and renowned chef Matt Tebbutt, which offers British cuisine with a contemporary twist. Then there's the LEVEL8IGHT Sky Bar with stunning panoramic views over Bournemouth Bay that can be enjoyed both day or night. Finally, it is also home to one of the UK’s first eforea spas, with four treatment rooms alongside a 20m indoor pool, sauna, salon and 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness suite.
As you can see it really was quite the event, and I absolutely loved how one of the large meeting rooms was transformed into a mini scene of Bournemouth with plentiful seafood, sweet cotton candyfloss and a larger than life beach hut with a ton of sand scattered around to make it that more life like (having said that, I do feel sorry for them clearing that up afterwards!)

This was also my first visit to the new Hilton hotel, and after literally witnessing every moment of the hotel being built over time, it was so amazing to see the finished result. With eight meeting rooms and one of the biggest ballrooms in Bournemouth, I was totally spellbound by the scale and also the luxe interiors by Ted Baker's brand founder Ray Kelvin. It was clear from both the event and the hotel overall that classic design and quirky innovation are central to the hotel’s aesthetic, and it was so great to hear how bespoke the interiors and furnishings are to the Hilton Bournemouth.

Moreover, it was equally special to have a touch of local craftsmanship and design influences visible around the hotel, such as the specially curated items celebrating local talent such a collection of local Poole Pottery, one of the largest on public display, and Colin Moore’s mural of Poole Harbour, which hangs in reception.

As a Bournemouth resident, I'm often asked about recommendations for where to stay, where to eat and what to in Bournemouth. Well, having been to the Hilton for a few different events now I would so highly recommend it as a base for your weekend in the heart of Southern England.
