Indian-owned, Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group transforms the iconic Great Scotland Yard into a luxury hotel and will charge a whopping Rs. 8 lakh per night
Abu Dhabi-based LuLu Group, run by Indian billionaire from Kerala, Yusuff Ali, has acquired the Great Scotland Yard, the iconic former Metropolitan Police Headquarters. He is converting it into a luxury hotel and will be charging a whopping Rs.8 lakh per night.
The hotel, with 153 keys, will be operated by the Hyatt Group and is slated to open soon. The LuLu Group supervised and headed the restoration project of London’s Great Scotland Yard and its conversion into a modern hotel. The project cost a staggering Rs.584, 88, 16,050 (approx. 75 million Euros).
Great Scotland Yard has been painstakingly restored without transforming the character or architectural features of the original building. Sections of the former police headquarter, including the cells, have been converted into workspace areas and meeting rooms that can be rented on request. In keeping with its architectural character and former use, the décor of the hotel includes artwork by former prisoners as well as military uniforms.
