It’s one thing to stay at a luxury hotel or resort, and another to stay like a VIP in “suite” style. This year has seen a bevy of ultra-luxe accommodations open at some of the world’s most prestigious properties. Here is a look at our picks for the Top 10 Luxury Suite Openings for 2011.
Jeremy Goring commissioned the two-bedroom, two-reception-room suite in 2010 to mark the centenary of his family’s hotel that year. The suite is wreathed with a new balcony that rungs the entire length of the top floor of the hotel.
The 1,540-square-foot corner suite, previously called the Presidential Suite, has large parlor windows overlooking Boston’s Public Garden and Commonwealth Avenue, a dining room that can seat up to six, an entertaining area with wet bar, and a master bedroom and a second park-view bedroom, both with private marble baths.
This bi-level suite is the hotel’s most impressive room. It offers two levels and a private terrace with a deluxe Jacuzzi.
The two Flamands Villas measure at 4,300 square feet and each have direct access to Flamands Bay. Each villa comes with a screening room, a personal fitness room and a patio with a private plunge pool.
This is the largest single-level suite at the resort and includes four bedrooms (two of them master suites) and four bathrooms, as well as a flexible media room, which can also be used as a fifth bedroom or den. Each of the bedrooms has floor-to-ceiling windows, Juliet balconies, radiant-heated floors and Jacuzzi hot tubs in both master bedrooms.
This powder blue-and-white room sits on the 14th floor of the St. Regis New York. It is 1,700 square feet and offers views of 55th Street and 5th Avenue. The room has its own living room, as well.
Located on the seventh floor, the Ludovisi Suite is accessed by private elevator and has a furnished, landscaped terrace with awe-inspiring views over the rooftops and monuments of the Eternal City.
Located on the hotel’s 34th floor, the Presidential Suite offers panoramic views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Its master bedroom has a four-poster bed with linen canopy.
Sprawling out over more than 4,000 square feet, the suite has four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, two living rooms, a kitchen and a dining room ideal for those looking to entertain. We love the floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Wellington Arch and Green Park.
Located on the top three levels of the hotel, five ethnic-themed suites and the Presidential Suite offer completely unobstructed views of the city skyline and Marina Bay. The suites are named after the cultures that contributed to the makeup of Singapore and ar named after ex-Governors of the Straits Settlements.
