30 Aug Your First Look At Toronto’s New Bisha Hotel
Just in time for fall’s Toronto International Film Festival, Bisha Hotel Toronto is set to open by September. Occupying a prime locale in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District, the luxury boutique hotel is just steps from the restaurants and nightlife of King Street West, as well as attractions like the CN Tower and Rogers Centre.
Bisha Hotel Toronto is the brainchild of INK Entertainment CEO Charles Khabouth and Lifetime Development principals Sam Herzog and Mel Pearl. Khabouth has been a pioneer in Toronto’s nightlife, entertainment and hospitality industry for decades and, with the opening of this chic new property, he ushers in the next level of lifestyle in the city — with new restaurants, a lobby bar and a rooftop lounge that are certain to be hits.
With interiors designed by Studio Munge, the concept is strikingly bold with black marble interiors and brass accents, creating a dramatic space that will undoubtedly become a gathering place to see and be seen.
The hotel offers 96 guest rooms adorned with curated art and custom-designed pieces — such as luxurious armoires and service carts stocked with top-shelf goods — to elevate your experience. Private balconies, several VIP suites, large soaker tubs and amenities from Swedish skincare and fragrance brand Byredo help seal the deal for the property’s sophisticated, well-heeled visitors.
Bisha guests can also enjoy the rooftop infinity pool, along with specialized services, like 24/7 mobile requests, round-the-clock room service and customized concierge experiences.
The grand opening of Bisha Hotel Toronto will also unveil another unique addition: an entire floor envisioned and realized by Kravitz Design Inc., an interior product design firm led by rocker and artist Lenny Kravitz. The exclusive seventh floor promises to be urban, dynamic and cosmopolitan, just like Kravitz himself.
Just as stylish as the rooms, the Lobby Bar and adjoining terrace create an intimate, Parisian-themed space complete with a showpiece circular marble fireplace, a baby grand piano and secluded corners for the VIP set to relax, incognito.
There will also be a 24-hour café at street level, a highly anticipated restaurant by chef Akira Back on the second floor and, up on the 44th floor, a new poolside eatery that will be one of the hottest spots in the city.
The 7,000-square-foot rooftop will offer sweeping views of the Toronto skyline, an infinity pool, a chic lounge and a laidback, beachside-inspired restaurant with a massive open kitchen that will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner year-round.
