Dorchester Collection relaunches Hotel Eden Rome

first_imgHotel-Eden-LobbyDorchester Collection relaunches Hotel Eden, RomeIn line with Dorchester Collection’s continuous investment in taking the luxury experience to new levels, April 1, 2017 sees the much anticipated reopening and unveiling of Hotel Eden, the company’s iconic property in Rome, following an extensive 18-month restoration.World-renowned architect and interior designers Bruno Moinard and Claire Betaille of 4BI & Associés, together with Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku from Jouin Manku, were commissioned to oversee the renovation, comprising 98 spacious guestrooms and suites, a dynamic food and drink concept and the hotel’s first urban spa and blow-dry bar.Located in the heart of the old city of Rome, a short stroll from the legendary Spanish Steps and picturesque Villa Borghese, Hotel Eden will provide guests with a true Roman experience, enhanced by a breathtaking panorama across the Eternal City. Formerly offering 121 rooms, the hotel’s reduced room and suites count ensures more expansive spaces for guests to relax. Moinard and Betaille, who were entrusted with the restoration of the lobby, rooms, suites and meeting rooms, designed the spaces to accentuate the beauty of natural light, emphasised further by the high ceilings and tall windows framing Rome’s skyline. Hotel Eden’s top suite, the Bellavista Penthouse Suite, offers unrivalled views of Rome with floor-to-ceiling windows which can be fully opened.Spearheaded by award-winning executive chef Fabio Ciervo, Hotel Eden’s food and beverage offering has been carefully crafted to harmonise exceptional food with a healthy lifestyle. The hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, La Terrazza, is located on the top floor and offers guests views across Rome with an innovative Mediterranean menu using high quality, fresh and seasonal produce. Jouin Manku, responsible for the redesign of the restaurants and spa, draws on traditional Italian craftsmanship as inspiration for their design with a fresco glass wall taking centre stage.Offering all day dining, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar is an urban retreat from the city’s crowds. Playing on the natural assets of the hotel’s stunning views, Jouin Manku has designed a friendly atmosphere with an abstract ‘vertical garden’. Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar offers an array of light, healthy choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner, alongside a selection of pasta, pizza and cicchetti. There are creative cocktails and signature wines in the bar, as well as a children’s menu and large sharing platters for groups. For guests wishing to inject some mystery and romance, La Libreria plays hosts to a ‘secret bar’ providing classic and innovative cocktails during aperitif time.Historically a popular choice for meetings, conferences and events, Hotel Eden’s three fully refurbished and equipped meetings rooms have been enhanced to cater to various group sizes and events.New to the hotel is the Eden Spa, offering a range of holistic wellness experiences and therapies from Sonya Dakar and Officina Profumo – Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. The new urban spa features three suites and a unique blow-dry bar, as well as a manicure and pedicure suite.Throughout the restoration, each designer has taken special care in preserving the spirit of the property. Guests will feel at home with the same dedicated team who ran the hotel prior to its temporary closure in 2015, offering the familiar, ultimate quality service.Commenting on the reopening of Hotel Eden, Luca Virgilio, general manager, states: “We are delighted to reopen Hotel Eden and lead it into its next chapter. We look forward to welcoming guests and offering them the most memorable experience in a timeless destination.”Dorchester CollectionDorchester Collection is a portfolio of the world’s foremost luxury hotels in Europe and the US, each of which reflects the distinctive culture of its destination.

4 Questions to ask in travel

first_img learn more about here 4 Questions to ask in travelStruggling to get answers? Are you asking the right questions?At the end of every year I sit down and review what happened, why, success and failures. Sometimes on a park bench, sometimes beating the crap out of a punching bag , downloading a stack of books, online courses and restructuring and planning or the year ahead.One of the most challenging parts of being human is dealing with change. Proactive change takes courage. But change only comes with knowledge, and knowledge often only comes if we ask questions.Ergo – you need to be brave enough to ask the right questions of customers and suppliers.Who makes the decisions?If it’s a customer, are you speaking to the decision-maker or someone who is just kicking the tires of the itinerary you lovingly produced. If it’s a supplier and you have a problem, who makes the decision and takes ownership of resolution. Also consider why are they coming to the decisions they are?Got accreditation – or can I really trust you?Accreditation isn’t for everybody, but if you’re dealing with someone who doesn’t have it, it’s important to ask why.Some people thought roomsXML/Stuba overdoing it when we went for assessment by Standard and Poor’s  internationally recognised “hi credit worthiness rating” means that we’ve opened our books and they are definitely not cooked. With travel companies going bust, does it make you feel more comfortable?If someone is not accredited, ask why.Champagne on a beer budget? If you’re dealing with a customer who is balking at spending an extra $50 here and there on a $5000 itinerary, you could well be wasting your time. If your suppliers are running fancy events, driving fancy cars whilst having a reputation for failing to try their best for you on a refund or resolution, are they the right one for you?Is it somewhere you’d like to work?A high staff churn rate is like a crystal ball looking at a company’s long-term prospects. If the staff are coming and going at a rate of knots , corporate knowledge is not being retained and improved, so its harder for a company to improve. If the staff are publishing criticisms online, in droves, you have to wonder.It can also be a measure of the relationship between managers and staff – if the staff aren’t staying, you have to ask why not and what does that mean on how you do business with them!

Many watchmakers researched the perpetual movement

first_imgMany watchmakers researched the perpetual movement of a mechanism that, once set in motion, would continue to function indefinitely. But it was Abraham-Louis Perrelet who had the idea of harnessing the energy produced by the natural movements of the person wearing the timekeeper and, in 1777, developed the first automatic watch in the history of watchmaking. By placing the movement at the center of their development projects, the Perrelet engineers developed what was to become one of the mechanisms especially typical of the watch industry, the “Double Rotor.” This unique, patented creation represents the essence of Perrelet’s brand identity.The Perrelet calibre P-181 with automatic winding displays two rotors, one on the dial side and the other on the side of the movement. The combination of the two perfectly synchronized rotors feeds the going barrel so the mechanism has a source of energy that is continuous and amplified. The rotor situated on the dial side also enables a constant control of the good functioning of the watch.The cases with their fluid, dynamic lines—in steel, gold or titanium—house refined dials that are readily legible and display an attractive central motif. The Double Rotor becomes mobile and turns on its own axis at the slightest movement, as when worn on its owner’s arm. Calibre P-181 can appear to be both technological or poetic, and sportive or classical. The Double Rotor is represented in four different families of Perrelet Watches: Turbine, Diamond Flower, Double Rotor Titanium and Classical.The latest creation is the surprising Turbine. This is certainly the most dynamic interpretation of the Double Rotor, since it completely covers the dial. Consequently, the Turbine, whose design is protected, produces a spectacular optical effect by means of a lower dial. It is an effect which, only on this model, is reinforced by the exceptional dissociation of the two rotors.For more information visit read more

of the day Write to Helen Regan at helenregan@timeasiacomAndreas Dracopoulos is not a popular man among the wealthiest one percent in Greece As an heir to one of the greatest shipping fortunes in modern history he has been among the only members of this secretive caste to speak up about its failure to help Greece through its financial crisis As that crisis hurtles toward an all-out catastrophe this week he says its time for Greek tycoons to start pulling their weight "Im very upset with this class of people" Dracopoulos says in an interview in his Athens office a plush and heavily guarded compound across the street from the American embassy "Its nothing personal I know some of them Theyre my friends old schoolmates But Im very vocal ethically practically that they are not doing enough that they could do more" Over the past five years even as the Greek economy has suffered a downturn deeper and more protracted than the US Great Depression many of the countrys richest families have been sitting on their hands and their fortunes as millions of their fellow Greeks descend into poverty "You have all these people who have money but who dont do any of the three things they should do” Dracopoulos tells TIME "They dont do philanthropy they dont pay taxes and they dont start businesses" The tax status of Greek shipping magnates has been a particular point of contention during Greeces fraught negotiations with its creditors Under a provision written into the Greek constitution half a century ago the government is forbidden from taxing what the ship owners earn abroad a hallmark of the political influence these oligarchs have enjoyed for decades In recent weeks European leaders have urged Greece to shift more of the countrys financial burden onto the super rich and have apparently been rebuffed "I had to do the job of the Greek government" lamented the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker who has been a key figure in the recent efforts to save Greece from crashing out of the European currency union During a press conference in Brussels on June 29 when those efforts broke down Juncker revealed how he had pushed the Greek government to "impose a less favorable tax treatment for ship owners although this is common sense and in line with tax justice" Before coming to power earlier this year the far-left Syriza party seemed to agree with his message Its leader Alexis Tsipras pledged at the height of the crisis in 2012 to seek an agreement with the shipping industry that would abolish "the provocative 58 different tax exemptions" its businesses enjoy But Tsipras has backed off of these promises since he became Prime Minister in January and has focused instead on getting debt relief from Greeces foreign creditors This approach has robbed Greece of a vast pool of potential revenue says Haris Theoharis a Greek lawmaker who was in charge of the national tax police until late last year The exemptions for the shipping industry he says cost the government a source of income worth up to one percent of GDP per year The shipping industry has a tax burden of about 3% while other industries pay an average of 20-25% in taxes "This skews the numbers" Theoharis tells TIME "Its very easy for them to get their way Not just through lobbying and political pressure Theyre covered They say OK this is shipping money and its zero Its written into the constitution: no taxes on shipping" The political will to change this anomaly in the Greek constitution has been remarkably weak for generations Part of the reason has to do with the sheer size of the Greek shipping industry which employs about 200000 workers and sustains another 300000 of their family members in a nation of only 11 million people The Greek merchant fleet is also the largest in the world comprising nearly a quarter of all the bulk carrier ships globally and according to the Greek chapter of the International Chamber of Commerce Greek-owned ships carry about one sixth of all the seaborne cargo in the world "We are the taxi drivers of the world economy" boasts Nicos Vernicos the Chambers President and a prominent Greek ship owner Shipping tycoon Nicos Vernicos pictured on one of his tugs at Piraeus Port in Athens on July 1 2015 Andrew McConnell—Panos for TIME Amid the crisis he says that rich Greeks have been giving back to their communities in quiet ways staying true to a long tradition of avoiding conspicuous displays of wealth especially at times of growing poverty "When the Greek people are suffering I cannot go to my island with an expensive car" says Vernicos whose familys shipping empire was founded in the mid-19th century by his ancestor Emmanuel Vernicos "My heart is blue" he continues "I cannot go out in the night and break plates like I was doing when I was your age" But blue as his heart may be Vernicos says it would be unwise for the government to antagonize ship owners by dramatically raising their taxes He points out that Greek shipping companies already agreed to a "voluntary" increase in their tax burden in 2013 collectively offering an extra 105 million euros in annual revenues to the government through 2017 when the agreement will expire But forcing the industry to pay much more would only encourage shipping companies to move their operations offshore "I need money to buy new ships" Vernicos explains And if the tax rate in Greece ceases to be competitive "the banks who finance me theyre going to say Mr Vernicos we like you youre very good But we cannot support you now that shipping [in Greece] is bad and you have to pay tax" In Greece there is an extra level of protection for ship owners in the enormous pride the locals take in their industry It is the only business where this seafaring nation has maintained its dominance for generations and along with tourism it has been a rare island of prosperity amidst the financial crisis In 2002 when Greeces admission into the European currency union allowed its mints to release a Greek version of euro coins the government even put an oil tanker on the back of the five-cent piece It seemed a fitting homage in those times of plenty to the era of the so-called Golden Greeks Aristotle Onassis and Stavros Niarchos whose rivalry on the high seas fascinated the tabloids of the 1960s and 70s Back then Niarchos would entertain Hollywood celebrities on his yacht while at the height of his wealth and influence in 1968 Onassis married the widow of an American President Jacqueline Kennedy Dracopoulos who along with his two cousins inherited much of the Niarchos shipping fortune after Stavros Niarchos died in 1996 says the constitutional tax exemption has outlived its purpose It was instated to lure Greek shipping fortunes and their patriarchs back home to Greece from their tax havens in places like Monaco "Thats when Onassis and my uncle came back" and began investing heavily in Greece building oil refineries shipyards and other infrastructure says Dracopoulos "It was a different law for different circumstances It was done so you could bring money in because Greece needed investments But I believe this law has been abused" he says Vernicos who is a board member of the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping counters by listing all the ways Greek ship owners have given back "Go to any island and you will see that the schools the hospitals the city hall its all built by ship owners" he says including on the Vernicos familys ancestral island of Sifnos In Athens the main cardiovascular hospital was built by the Onassis familys foundation And countless development projects have indeed been bankrolled by these elites over the years But during the financial crisis the developments have not always been targeted to the neediest segments of the population Under an agreement reached with the Greek government in 2006 about two years before the crisis hit the Niarchos family agreed to build an enormous cultural center in Athens worth $600 million When it is unveiled early next year it will include a new opera house and a new national library even though the Greek capital already has those things Dracopoulos who serves as co-president of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation acknowledges that operas and libraries may not be the primary need of the Greek people at a time when half the youth is unemployed He is also sensitive to the criticism that the Greek state which has proven shockingly inefficient even at the task of tax collection may not be able to run the culture center properly once the foundation hands it over with no strings attached "Its like the stupid uncle from America who comes gives the money and goes" says Dracopoulos a naturalized US citizen who spends most of his time in New York
