Barvikha Hotel, sitting proudly west of Moscow’s city centre in its most expensive suburb, is one of the most unashamedly, unrepentantly – and yet unassumingly – lavish hotels.
Barvikha is the hotel that the well-to-do of Russia, those fortunate individuals who have enough money never to actually think about money, suggest to their visiting, equally affluent, international pals. Of course, their ‘in-country’, in-the-know friends don’t need telling.
To describe all the features of this hotel, or to even list them, would take more space than is available. But when we tell you that this hotel has a ‘philosophy of beauty’, you’ll start to have an inkling of how luxurious Barvikha really is.
There is a butler service, a florist, a spa, a restaurant which serves low-calorie, highly delicious food and a juice bar for those microbiotic beverages you were craving. There is a pillow and bed linen ‘menu’ for discerning guests to select which sheets they’d like to slip between at night. And the hotel is located right next to the Barvikha shopping village – a place so adorned with luxe labels the whole place visibly sparkles.
In short, Barvikha has everything you could need, plus everything you never knew you could have, want or be lucky enough to enjoy.
