InterContinental Hotels has teamed up with renowned British artist Claire Luxton to create three nature-inspired suites that will add an extra touch of elegance to your next vacation.

Located in London, Dubai, and New York, these limited edition stays are a true immersive experience that plays on the beauty and wonder of the natural world. The collaboration includes Instagram-worthy lobby floral installations, art-filled suite takeovers, luxe amenities, special food & beverage offerings, and more. In the suites, Luxton’s unique artistic vision is brought to life through bespoke 3D art installations, floral displays, furnishings, artwork and multi-sensory experiences.

Standout suite amenities include bold floral artwork, a mini bar with drinks and snacks curated by Luxton, art-inspired cocktails, a bespoke Spotify playlist, and a complimentary drawn-bath service featuring flower petals, premium champagne, luxury fragrances by Byredo and a relaxing soundscape.

“I’m thrilled to partner with InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, interpreting the brand’s story of worldliness. Global travel inspires my work, and I hope it shines through in every detail of the collaboration, from the foyer florals and the hotel team’s custom scarves to the drawn bath experience and the artworks themselves,” Luxton says in a press release. “Each flower and animal within my work for InterContinental reflects a hotel or resort from its past, present or future. In curating the design of these suites and experiences, I sought to explore the delicate equilibrium between humans and nature while celebrating the magic of wanderlust.”

Every detail and room accent across the suites has been transformed to reflect Luxton’s signature style. Perhaps the most eye-catching element of the suites is the Great Purple Emperor and Emerald Swallowtail-inspired butterflies display—which are suspended from ceilings—that represent InterContinental hotels in Japan and Southeast Asia, respectively.

“InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has delighted worldly travelers by bringing luxury experiences to every corner of the globe for more than 75 years,” adds Tom Rowntree, Vice President Global Marketing for Luxury Brands at IHG Hotels & Resorts. “As we redefine our ethos of discovery and modern luxury, we’re excited to welcome visitors and locals alike with a fresh approach to the guest experience, starting with our collaboration with Claire Luxton.”

The Claire Luxton experience is available to book at InterContinental New York Barclay until July 15, 2022; InterContinental Park Lane London until June 30, 2022, and InterContinental Dubai Festival City until mid-July.
