Think you’ve got a lot of house plants in your home? Well just take a look at these new hotel suites, available to book from the 19th October for a limited time only, designed to create an immersive botanical experience for your overnight stay.

A trio of top horticulturalists, including architect Oliver Heath, renowned florist Grace & Thorn and This Morning’s plant expert Mr. Plant Geek, has each designed one suite in the Leman Locke hotel in central London, with each room exploring a specific benefit of bringing plants into your home.

New research from Thejoyofplants.co.uk has found that despite nearly 40% of people recognising that spending more time connecting to nature would make them happier, a similar number only spend 17 minutes a day in the great outdoors during the winter months.

So, take a look at these three inspiring suite designs below and, if you fancy spending the night in one of these havens for plant-lovers, you can book your stay by emailing [email protected] The rooms will be available for bookings until November 10th, and reservations for the three rooms made directly via the email will automatically receive a 15% discount – great news!

Created by architect and ‘biophilic’ designer Oliver Heath, this space has been designed to be the ultimate productive space for travelling workers. It’s filled with Boston ferns, peace lilies and snake plants, all of which are said to have productivity-boosting qualities. The room also features ‘soundwave therapy’ that can help with focus and boost your concentration.

If you’re booking a hotel room for a more amorous occasion, then try the Romance suite, created by celebrated florist Nik Southern from Grace & Thorn. The bed has a dreamy, romantic canopy of trailing plants, and guests are also encourage to try a ‘love-boosting’ cocktail to get them in the mood.

Michael Perry, also known as Mr Plant Geek, has created this suite to evoke the serene qualities of house plants. Packed with tropical species such as bromeliads and monstera, the suite includes an immersive plant bathing experience, a plant meditation zone and promises the best air-purifying plants for a clean sleeping experience.
