One&Only Resorts and iconic British designer Alice Temperley have joined together for a new collaboration to create the One&Only Tipi by Temperley, London for guests at One&Only Le Saint Géran.
“One&Only is about delivering distinctive experiences fuelled by imagination and style,” says Helen McCabe-Young, One&Only’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing. “Alice Temperley’s immense creativity and whimsical sense of luxury bring to life the idyllic place for creating memorable moments in a very spectacular setting. One&Only Resorts and Temperley London are two internationally-renowned brands, both at the forefront of their respective fields, that share many attributes in common -amongst these, a demand for impeccable quality, an innate sense of style and, above all, fun.”
The first One&Only Tipi by Temperley is situated on the idyllic and scenic peninsula of One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius. The canvas structure, standing 17 feet tall and reaching 20 feet in diameter, is traditionally hand-stitched and decorated with jewels for guests to celebrate romantic moments, honeymoons, indulge in lavish spa treatments, enjoy a small party or simply drift to sleep under the stars. A true embodiment of bohemian chic - the tipi boasts a Parisian glass chandelier suspended from the canopy, a custom-made wooden floor and golden fabric draped throughout the interior.
“Temperley London is as much about fashion as it is about a lifestyle,” says Alice Temperley of the new partnership. “To me travel is about raw experiences under the stars and discovering the unexpected, not just traditional high-end luxury. The One&Only Tipi truly embodies this and I cannot wait to spend my first night of many in this magical creation.”
A born traveler and outdoor enthusiast, Alice Temperley has always appreciated the rustic and remote locations of the Tipis created by the American Indians. As a child, Temperley used her own decorated Tipi in the remote English countryside as a hideaway and into adulthood has utilized the structure for her annual Summer Party in Somerset now synonymous with Tipis used for reveling and relaxation.
