Fine dining at the luxurious hotel Bel-Air
Luxury hotel Bel-Air part of the Dorchester Collection underwent a major transformation in 2011, which Adelto reported on. For the refurbishment and redesign the hotel group appointed two internationally renowned design teams Alexandra Champalimaud and Rockwell Group.
Rockwell Group redesigned the dining venues and new additions to offer expanded dining opportunities that enhance both the indoor and outdoor elements of the property. The signature restaurant, Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air, features modern California cuisine with European and Mediterranean influences. A spacious indoor/outdoor patio overlooks the garden and lush grounds, and multiple glass wine cellars separate the main and private dining rooms. Guests can enjoy tea and cocktails in the lobby lounge, while the luxury Californian hotel bar has maintained its cozy lounge feeling and a separate terrace bar has been added. Events from 10 to 300 can be accommodated in the redesigned Garden Ballroom and Palm Room. Business and leisure travellers alike will also appreciate the installment of a new WiFi network to ensure all mobile devices work at optimum speed and clarity.
The signature Hotel Bel-Air swans, which remained at Swan Lake during the entirety of the restoration process, can still be found gliding along the clearest of water thanks to a new circulation pump that will save 1.5 M gallons of water a year.
