As part of YTL Hotel's commitment to improving The Academy, we are delighted to announce the hotel is undergoing a multi-million-pound interior refurbishment which will be completed in April 2018. The Academy will also become part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection.

Renowned New York-based designer Alexandra Champalimaud is overseeing the refurbishment of The Academy, creating an engaging blend of modern and vintage with a nod to the lives and loves of the Bloomsbury Set who lived and worked in the area in the early 20th Century.

Please note, the hotel will remain open throughout the period of renovation and we would like to reassure our guests that during the renovations, disruption will be kept to a minimum. Thank you for your understanding.
