Watergate Bay playlist

Back to blog

Our playlist is lounge; it’s languid, an anthem for escapism.

To reflect on our own unique brand of leisure, Watergate Bay Hotel has composed not only just an anthem, but a full playlist of tunes which you can hear around the various public spaces in the hotel and restaurants. We love our music and hope you do too, and believe that music is as important in creating an atmosphere and a mood as the soft furnishing, pictures on the wall and even the view.

Our current playlist features Feist with My Moon, My Man, so too Arcade Fire with Wasted Hours and The Velvet Underground with Sunday Morning but we are always updating it with new songs and artists and welcome any suggestions that you feel resonates with Watergate Bay.

Most recently we have added tracks from alt-J, Lykke Li, Lucy Rose and Gabrielle Aplin.

We’ve created a soundtrack for Sunday mornings and wasted hours; for a time perhaps where little is achieved but much is gained.

Featuring not background music but music to be played in the background, the playlist is a series of classic tracks that enhance rather than encumber conversation, winding-down and recuperating from outdoor adventure.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
