P&O Cruises will be introducing Conservatory Mini-Suites as part of the accommodation on their newest ship Iona. Providing a relaxing haven, the conservatory-style suites give an extension to the cabin, opening onto a balcony.
Inspired by the seaside, Iona’s design brings sea views into each room with timeless nautical navy and gold soft furnishings, light oak and beige colour palette with luxurious white fixtures and fittings for a calm and sophisticated sanctuary where guests can relax.
With L-shaped sofas in the Conservatory Mini-suites, the space may be closed off or left open. The new concept has been created by design experts Richmond International, who are also designing all of the cabins on the new ship, as well as other public spaces.
P&O Cruises senior vice-president Paul Ludlow said: “Iona’s Conservatory Mini-suites will certainly make the sea the star, creating a peaceful and flexible space for our guests to enjoy a wonderful ocean view, feel cocooned and breathe the sea air.
“We know conservatories are popular with the British and the warmth and relaxation they bring can now be enjoyed on board.
“From sunrise to sunset these cabins will offer our guests a tranquil escape in luxurious surroundings.”
Richmond International director Terry McGillicuddy said: “The new conservatory mini-suites create an exciting addition to Iona’s accommodation options.
“From in-depth research into the future of yacht, airline and hotel accommodation we have created a personal, versatile, outdoor/indoor space that can be an extension of the room – a place to either entertain or relax.”
Guests will also be able to choose from four Balcony options – Deluxe (the most spacious), Balcony, Single and Standard Balcony – all of which offer an extended private space in which to relax and unwind.
Iona’s cabin selection includes Sea view (Outside), Inside cabins and suites.
