Today, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts launch a new programme of bath amenities with European luxury brand Byredo, bringing some of the world’s favourite cosmetics – in a more sustainable full size – to some of the most beautiful hotel bathrooms across the globe.
This launch combines a response to the growing demand from travelers looking for unique stays while travelling more consciously, with meaningful luxury products of the highest quality like Byredo. The Byredo amenities will be rolled out across InterContinental properties globally from now. Including cult favourites within Byredo’s fragrance portfolio, such as Bal d’Afrique, a warm and romantic vetiver infused with neroli, African marigold and Moroccan cedarwood, and Blanche, a pure and fresh scent with hints of delicate rose and sandalwood, the Byredo ritual will become a highlight of InterContinental bathrooms over the next year.
Amongst the first hotels to carry the range will be the recently opened InterContinental Barcelona, InterContinental Fujairah Resort, InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC and InterContinental Sydney in their newly renovated rooms.
