Here's a suite worth exploring: The Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara in Abu Dhabi has opened the Royal Mangroves Residence, and it sounds like one of the most intriguing new penthouses to come on the scene in a while.

Situated on the top two floors of the hotel (which is located along a mile-long stretch of protected mangrove reserves), the Royal Mangroves Residence has uninterrupted views over the mangroves and the city. What makes it special? It has a private infinity pool with its own private swim-up pool bar, as well as a private rooftop garden. It can have three to ten king-sized bedrooms (each with its own bathroom, of course) with the option to add interconnecting rooms or even a security room. There's a private entrance and elevator and (we love this best of all) a private chef, mixologist, limousine and driver all available whenever needed. 

We hear the architecture blends unique elements of Arabic design evident in mashrabiyas, intricate mosaics, solid timber and trellis work. Subtle and elegant touches of 18-carat gold are also used throughout the residence. We can't wait to see it for ourselves!
