Bees are so much more than honey… In an effort to raise awareness of the importance bees play in adding flavor to our food, british beverage brand Taylors of Harrogate has created a world’s first luxury bee hotel modeled after Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’. The yorkshire based company highlights the importance of bees in delivering the tastes found in fruit and herbal teas, launching a campaign to inspire action to ‘Save the flavor’.
Each room of The Bee hotel will delight bees and bee-lovers alike. The Sour Cherry Bedrooms include hollow nesting tubes for solitary bees. The Rose Lemonade Restaurant serves a feast of pollen for fuzzy guests. The Peppermint Leaf Gym gives bees a full-wing workout, and the Sweet Rhubarb Suite is all-the-buzz with decadent sugar-water baths and a UV disco room for waggle dancers.
The hotel is made from balsa wood and key features, such as the sugar-water baths and ultraviolet patterns, are based on scientific research that suggests bees will be enticed to enter for some rest and relaxation!
