With a tide of addictive new drama series such as Stranger Things, Making a Murderer and the OA maintaining their grip on viewers across the planet, finding more time to Netflix and Chill has become as important as ever – so we were beyond excited to check out London’s famous Andaz hotel’s take on the global phenomenon, with their astutely named “Bed Flicks & Chill” couples package.
Waving a fond goodbye to the evening commute we instead headed for the plush surroundings of Andaz’s Liverpool Street location, with a glass of wine on arrival that set the chilled vibe from the outset. Given Andaz’s location, surrounded by the bars and restaurants of the City of London and steps away from trendy Shoreditch, heading out pre Bed Flicks was definitely an option. However, bedside City views and a welcome package inclusive of chocolates, marshmallows and a chilled bottle of prosecco soon eradicated any desire to leave the room. Also, with a whole host of drink and food options on the in-room service menu, including pizza combos of your choice, we soon agreed that Bed Flicks and Chill and a room Pizza Party were by no means mutually exclusive.
After a swift pizza arrival, prosecco fizzing bedside and a behemoth sized bed navigated, attention turned to the extensive in-room movie library that is constantly updated by the Andaz tech wizards – with Blockbuster movies such as Bridget Jones’s Baby, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie and Girl On The Train, all delivered through a wide screen HD TV complete with flexible wall mount for optimal in-bed viewing. The selection of aphrodisiac-rich ice cream flavours of Chilli & Chocolate, Ginger & Coconut and Almond & Vanilla, included as part of the Bed Flicks package, provided the perfect sweetener to a relaxing evening of film watching into the small hours.
A complementary 2pm check-out left plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast and take full advantage of 25% off Andaz’s health club spa treatments, both included in this indulgent package. If you are looking for a weekend escape from the kids, or a chance to recharge your batteries while being totally spoilt, then Bed Flicks & Chill at the Andaz! Prices start from £199 for weekend stay dates until 31st December 2017, available to book until 30th April 2017.
