On entering Le Sorelle you are enveloped in the 6,500+ sq ft of luxury. The warm walnut floors and oak walls in the deck bar/lounge draw you in as your attention is lured to the hand crafted wall sconces and stainless steel details reminiscent of America's Machine Deco Period that gave us the Chrysler Building in New York city. This area has a full bar as well as seating/dining for 18+. Opening the glass wall of doors out to the garden exposes a seating/dining/sunning area for more than 40 that can be individually designed for your needs and extra tables and chairs stowed as necessary. At the forward end of the main garden is the spa garden with lounging/seating/dining area for 12+ arranged as you like. Our large BBQ can be in either garden or we can take it out to the quayside next to Le Sorelle and under the sycamore trees where we can also have dining for more than 100.
Two deck cabin suites each with seating, private dining and queen plush beds offer 5 star luxury and privacy. The baths for these suites include bath tubs for two, 2 hand basins a separate shower in one and a hand held shower in the other, and stainless steel towel warmers. The forward deck cabin suite can also have a private garden with the spa and two massage tables for a complete private spa experience. Otherwise, the spa garden area is accessible for all guests aboard through the main garden. The after deck cabin suite can privately use the wheelhouse and its amazing views across Canary Wharf and over towards the O2 Arena as well as the aft upper deck.
One step down from the bar and just past the private office and deck powder room is the ladder up to the wheelhouse offering the best views. Here there is a table for 10+ and access to the aft upper deck that can be set up for bar/dining or lounging.
From the bar the staircase leads you below deck where you will find the media room on your left. It is complete with a large screen, Bose entertainment system that sends separately programmed music into the deck bar & garden as well as to the below deck lounge and hundreds of books. Next you enter the performance kitchen with its open layout designed so 12+ can be entertained by a chef team or where an entire large family can gather to continue their cooking tradition. It is surrounded by a countertop with bar stools and opens into the dining area with a table for up to 16. Above the table is a full length skylight that allows sun and stars to illuminate your dining experience. The lounge area has further books and serves as the main stage for live music.
Through the double doors at the end of the lounge is an accommodation hall with 4 cabins each with private baths. The baths are fully tiled, have tubs and hand held showers. 3 of these cabins have queen plush beds and 1 has twin plush beds. There is ample cedar lined closet space in all cabins. A laundry with washer and dryer, iron and ironing board and closets with additional linens and towels as well as toiletries are on the hallway. Another separate full bath with shower is next to the laundry. There are also 2 separate powder rooms, one on deck and one below.
