Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites


Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites – The very best suites—from penthouses to train carriages—available now throughout the world.

There are countless travel specialists in the world, purporting to design trips for the ultimate luxury insiders, but only a handful—20, to be exact—who truly offer unparalleled access and expertise.

These Travel Masters are the world’s most canny and connected travel facilitators, a brain trust of five-star know-how with first-hand expertise in seeing (and sleeping in) the world’s greatest suites.

Robb Report factored in their experience when compiling this list.

No one is better placed to call out showstoppers rather than heavily hyped crash pads, to identify the genuinely exclusive versus the simply expensive.

Robb Report asked each of them for up to 10 suites that they have seen and book regularly for their discerning clientele and used these nominations as the basis for our rankings.

It’s not surprising, of course, that many of their nominations overlapped, and the hotels that had top suites recommended by more than one—in some cases, up to four—Travel Master earned spots at the top of the list.   

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Presidential Suite, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Dubai

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Presidential Suite Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Dubai

Everything is bigger in Dubai, especially in the iconic, sail-shaped Burj Al Arab on the Dubai waterfront.

The Presidential Suite here is two bedrooms and 7,178 square feet. In true Emirati-style the suite shows off with a marble and gold staircase, a grand dining room, and a private library.

But that’s just getting started. How about Hermès toiletries? How about your choice of 17 pillow styles?

How about 24K gold detailing, velvet footrests, silk kimonos, golden lampshades, a golden coffee machine, and a golden Dyson hair dryer.

That’s more like it. “Even the entry level suites in the Burj are off the charts in size, opulence, views and sheer grandeur,” says Catherine Heald of Remote Lands.

“This suite takes all that and multiplies it by a hundred and is truly mind-blowing.”

From $40,000 per night.

Grand Riad, Royal Mansour, Marrakech, Morocco

Grand Riad Royal Mansour Marrakech Morocco

Marrakech’s Royal Mansour is comprised of private riads ranged around their own complex, but this four-bedroom home is the superstar, with its own private entrance via an olive-tree-lined patio so you don’t ever need interact with other guests.

It’s aptly named, with almost 20,000 square feet of living space, including a cinema room, hammam, and snooker room.

Book it with Alex Wix of Wix Squared, and you could follow her suggestion—she has previously created an entire evening’s entertainment on the private rooftop pool.

A terrace complete with storytellers, local musicians, and dinner, all supplied discreetly via the network of tunnels that make service so effortless (and virtually invisible) here.

“You can see views of the Koutoubia Mosque and Atlas Mountains,” she says, “And you’re only a short walk, or caleche, or gold Bentley ride into the medina.”

From $43,500 per night.

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites The Penthouse, Claridge's, London, England

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites The Penthouse Claridge’s London England

Three words to describe the new penthouse bolted onto the top of Mayfair’s longtime jewel. 

“Wow, wow, wow,” says Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell of Cazenove+Loyd.

The new ninth floor, four-bedroom offering claims to be London’s most expensive suite—and it’s worth every penny, especially for art lovers.

Think of this as much as a gallery as a bedroom, with 75 works by Damien Hirst installed here that act as a pocket retrospective of his career.

From a 2001 spot pointing, ZDP, to several artworks from his 2017 show Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable.

There’s a rooftop garden, piano pavilion, and a dining room with space for 10, all overseen by designer Rémi Tessier, best known for his know-how with superyachts, including the interiors of vacuum cleaner magnate James Dyson.

There’s a 100-inch TV and a startlingly sleek series of skylights—the oculus, the most impressive, opens and closes camera aperture-style with a single press of a button.

From roughly $75,225 per night.

Suites Beatrice and Bellini, Passalacqua, Lake Como, Italy

Suites Beatrice and Bellini Passalacqua Lake Como Italy

Within a year of opening, Passalacqua has established itself as one of the world’s most sought-after hotels—so no wonder not one but two of its signature suites make the list.

The first is Suite Bellini, a 2,700-square-foot, one-bedroom spot that Wilmot-Sitwell stayed in and never wanted to leave, that’s named after the former owner of the home, the namesake composer.

Bellini devised not one but two major compositions in that room, now rebooted as a double-vaulted suite with a huge Murano glass chandelier; it claims to be the largest such suite on Lake Como.

“I loved having it to myself so I could marvel at its history,” he says. Scott Dunn’s Jules Maury prefers the Suite Beatrice, a 900-square-foot, one-bedroom option that’s named for Bellini’s Beatrice di Tenda. 

The dusky rose-pink colorway is offset with original stucco detailing and ceiling carvings; bonus points from Maury for concealing the televisions in antique steamer trunks.

“It was throwing open the shutters at dawn to watch the silvery light over Lake Como and hear nothing but birdsong that I loved,” she recalls.

Both suites sit in the seven-acre grounds on the waterfront that make for a dreamy, snapshot-ready backdrop, filled with jasmine plants, olive trees.

Stepped terraces that cascade down to the lake; listen out for the clucking, as there are chickens roaming among the fruit trees.

Beatrice Suite from around $3,000 per night and Bellini Suite from $6,440 per night.

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Dune Pavilion, Longitude 131, Northern Territory Australia

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Dune Pavilion Longitude 131 Northern Territory Australia

The only ultraluxe option within reach of Uluru is Longitude 131.

Part of a cluster of lodges in the Red Center that’s one of the world’s best glamping spots, nestled in terracotta-colored scrubland a short drive away.

Its top-tier room is the Dune Pavilion, a two-bedroom spot with private plunge pool, fireplaces, and artwork from local, mostly Indigenous artists.

There are views out across to both Uluru and Kata Tjuta (once known as the Olgas)—wake up at sunrise to see the colors shift markedly—and overnighting here grants access to sunset hikes around the park with local guides. 

Uncharted’s Sandy Cunningham calls it “a heady mix of raw and sumptuous at the same time.”

Make sure to book a treatment with the resort’s spa therapists, who now specialize in offering treatments inspired by the traditions of the local Anangu people.

From $73,780 per night.

Peninsula Suite, The Peninsula, Hong Kong

Peninsula Suite The Peninsula Hong Kong

A gigantic single-bedroom playpen perched over the Grande Dame of Hong Kongthe Peninsula Suite is the best in the city and it makes a huge impression.

Stacked with a sprawling living room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Victoria Harbour, it is filled with original artworks, antique furniture, a grand piano, a formal dining room that seats 10, a private gym, and even a screening room.

It’s also over 4,000 square feet. “I booked this suite for a ‘to remain nameless celebrity’ and his partner, who arrived by helicopter on the roof of the Peninsula,” says Wix.

“We arranged for their favorite films to be viewed in their private screen room each evening.

Their Rolls-Royce chauffeur was also on call 24/7.”

From $30,500 per night.

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Sydney Suite, Park Hyatt Sydney, Sydney, Australia

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Sydney Suite Park Hyatt Sydney Australia

Go on, look out across the water and pause for a moment: This hotel has a unique vantage point to offer unparalleled views of the Opera House, the building that’s become a shorthand not only for Australia’s sexiest city but also for the country itself.

The namesake, two-bedroom suite at the Park Hyatt, right across from that building at the tip of the Rocks district, is an almost 3,800-square-foot option with a wraparound balcony.

A private entrance for staff to come and go without disturbing the occupants and an oversized spa bath (if you want to consider the view from there, allow plenty of time to fill it).

Come during the light festival, VIVID, each May and the night-time views are even more extraordinary, as the projections dance along the Opera House’s sails, says Cari Gray of Gray & Co.

From around $16,090 per night, with a minimum two night stay.

Les Grands Appartements, Hôtel de Crillon, Paris, France

Les Grands Appartements Hôtel de Crillon Paris France

This storied hotel, commissioned by Louis XV in 1758, first opened as a hotel in 1909; it resurfaced six years ago under Rosewood’s guidance after a multimillion-dollar renovation—a revolution, even.

It was the late Karl Lagerfeld who was handed the responsibility of creating its most sumptuous suite, the aptly named Grands Appartements.

Lagerfeld oversaw every detail of the decor: Look for a portrait of his beloved, pampered cat, Choupette, in one bedroom, named in her honor, as well as the glass chandeliers, pinstriped wallpaper, and marble bathrooms—Kaiser Karl even oversaw picking every piece.

“The large paintings give hints of Versailles, like you’ve stepped back in time with Louis holding court,” says Gray, calling out the “showstopper” bathtub and the wall of glass into which an invisible TV screen is embedded, materializing at the touch of a button.

From $49,037 per night.

Ava Gardner Suite, Splendido Mare, a Belmond Hotel, Portofino, Italy

Ava Gardner Suite Splendido Mare a Belmond Hotel Portofino Italy

The glamorous spitfire of Hollywood’s Golden Age stayed here while filming 1954’s The Barefoot Contessa and deeded her name to the most impressive of the suites in this charming hotel, one which Gray calls the “essence of the Cinque Terre.”

The roughly 600-square-foot space is the best out of the 14 rooms and suites inside the Mare annex of the Belmond-operated hotel.

A former fishermen’s guesthouse, it now offers a delightful alternative to the main property, just 10 minutes’ walk away.

Gardner preferred its less frenetic, see-and-be-seen pace, and her namesake suite is filled with modern Italian design from the likes of Gio Ponti.

Plus a hundred-plus contemporary artworks; the roof terrace is the ideal place for swoony harbor views.

Make sure to sweet talk the receptionist into showing you the hotel’s guest book.

The leather bound tome is filled with scribbles from some of Hollywood’s most glittering stars—Elizabeth Taylor’s first proposal from Richard Burton was right here (she said yes, only to divorce and then remarry him).

From $1,450 per night.

Princess Grace Suite, Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Princess Grace Suite Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo Monaco

The only problem with staying in this suite in one of the world’s glitziest locations, says Max Rosenthal of Fischer Travel, is that it’s so well stocked with amenities.

“There’s no reason to leave,” he laughs, noting that the almost-10,000-square-foot space on the 7th and 8th floor of the hotel has not one but two stone terraces.

Plus its own private, heated infinity pool and 180-degree views out across the Mediterranean from superyacht-crammed Port Hercules out to the country’s western reaches.

It only opened in 2017, a landmark addition to one of the principality’s best-known hotels.

It is crammed with personalized touches intended to suggest that the late Grace Kelly might truly once have lived here—look at the books, featuring her favorites like Jean Anouilh and Romantic poetry.

Pressed flower collages on the walls, created by the princess herself. There are even family pictures in the office.

From roughly $69,843 per night.

Dalla Suite, Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, Sorrento, Italy

Dalla Suite Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria Sorrento Italy

The songwriter and singer Lucio Dalla “became the soundtrack for the lives of generations of Italians” says Jennifer Schwartz of Authentic Explorations.

For an experience that blends music and beauty in perfect harmony, check into Lucio’s namesake Dalla Suite at the Grand Hotel Excelsior VittoriaOverlooking the Bay of Naples in Sorrento, this room is where Dalla composed his hit “Caruso” while stay at the hotel in 1986.

Today, the two-bedroom suite pays homage to that moment in musical history with a contemporary-meets-antique furniture and design, parquet floors, three marble bathrooms, and, of course, a grand piano.

“The piano sits at the center of the room,” says Julian Harrison of Premier Tours.

“It can come with a local pianist, dressed in tuxedo, to play a private concerto during dinner.”

From $1,060 per night.

Ludovice Prestige Suite, Ludovice Palace, Lisbon Portugal

Ludovice Prestige Suite Ludovice Palace Lisbon Portugal

Welcome to Room 304, a.k.a. the Ludovice Prestige Suite, once a living room/parlor in the 18th-century palace home of João Frederico Ludovice, the king’s architect.

It’s one of the few buildings that didn’t collapse in the great earthquake of 1755.

The well-persevered 700-square-foot room still has the original white-and-blue tiles, as well as a balcony and three large windows facing the city that Ludovice himself stared out.

Outside you’re treated to views of old Lisbon and a more recent addition to city life: the much-photographed yellow tram, Elevador da Glória.

From $1,627 per night.

Eden Roc Suite, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, Antibes, France

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Eden Roc Suite Hotel du Cap Eden Roc Antibes France

This storied South of France gem—which has clocked up more than 150 years of hospitality—reopened earlier this year after a renovation steered by decorator Francis Sultana.

He was invited to meddle with its suites enough to make them both larger and lighter-feeling (and reduced the tally by seven to allow such improvements).

But one suite was beyond improvement: the penthouse namesake, with its canopy bed, private terrace, and hot tub that sits on top of the Pavilion building.

John Clifford of International Travel Management recommends it for the views, that 2,000-plus-square-foot terrace, and the chance to connect it with the junior suite next door, which creates an even roomier haven.

Don’t forget to sign the hotel’s Golden Book when you stay and see what messages past boldfaced guests—Damon, Pitt, Kidman, and Jolie have all stopped by, while Taylor and Burton honeymooned here—have scribbled in there, too.

From $7,000 per night

Dogaressa Suite, Hotel Cipriani, a Belmond Hotel, Venice, Italy

Dogaressa Suite Hotel Cipriani a Belmond Hotel Venice Italy

Belmond’s beloved Cipriani—call it the Cip, please, as regulars always would—sits both in the heart of Venice.

Perched at the tip of the Giudecca island and a brief boat ride from the edge of St Mark’s Square.

Think of this suite as the Cip of the Cip, housed a short walk through the gardens to a nearby palazzo, Vendramin, the oldest building in the hotel complex; it sits on the piano nobile there.

That allows you to escape the hoi polloi in the hotel bar—mostly George Clooney, a regular negroni-sipper there.

Clifford calls it out what he describes as “oozing 18th century glamour,” thanks to the maximalist decor, which is heavy on elaborate Fortuny and Rubelli silks woven nearby, Coromandel screens, Old Master paintings festooning the walls, and a cotton candy–esque pink marble bathroom. 

From roughly $9,712.

The Mark Penthouse, Mark Hotel, New York, USA

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites The Mark Penthouse Mark Hotel New York USA

In New York, biggest is best and the nothing tops the penthouse at the Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Since its debut with a Jacques Grange–design back in 2015.

This 10,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bathroom slice of the city has been a power play.

It’s where Meghan Markle had her baby shower.

It’s where Met Gala VIPs gaggle. It’s where Drake raps his sheep to sleep.

It has four fireplaces, a living room that can be transformed into a full-sized Grand Ballroom, and its own conservatory.

But Rosenthal says it’s really all about the private, 2,500-square-foot rooftop terrace.

“With panoramic views of Central Park and the NYC skyline, the rooftop can be customized for special experiences,” he says.

“It’s been transformed into an ice-skating rink, and Jean Georges has personally catered private dinners for intimate groups.” 

From $75,000 per night.

Seven South Suite, Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Seven South Suite Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman Islands

Bigger isn’t always better, but in the case of the nine-bedroom, almost-18,000-square-foot suite at the Ritz-Carlton here, we’ll make allowances for the largest suite in the Caribbean—as will Jonathan Alder of Jonathan’s Travels, who singles it out as a regional standout.

“The outdoor space is large enough to entertain or hold a small wedding on,” he says. Like the rest of the resort.

It was designed by superstar hospitality interiors Alexandra Champalimaud and her team, who conferred their signature elegant glamour on the vast space with a brief to evoke the interiors of a luxury yacht (hence the wooden walls, round rooms, and oversized windows)

Undeniably, though, the standout detail is the primary bathroom. Clad in fine, blue-veined marble, it has its own ocean-facing balcony and circular standalone tub.

From $25,000 per night.

Pacific Suite, Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, California, USA

Greatest Luxury Hotel Suites Pacific Suite Post Ranch Inn Big Sur California USA

Sunset lovers, rejoice: Come here, says Jackson, for the ultimate experience at dusk.

“The suite has some of the best views of the Pacific Ocean and quite possibly the best sunset experience in California,” he swoons.

The circular, two-story home, the best spot in this 39-room adults-only property, is primed to enjoy that year-round—after all, even in midsummer.

The weather in this rugged corner of the Golden State can be brisk, and ocean fogs can roll in out of nowhere.

Expect a wood burning fireplace and heated floors, plus a stainless-steel soaking tub out on the private deck, sitting 1,200 feet above the Pacific Ocean off Highway 1.

Bring a Tropic of Cancer paperback to peruse while you sit there, as Henry Miller used to draw inspiration from his home here.

Make sure to spend some time out on the deck once the sun’s set, as the stargazing here is also first-class.

From $2,500 per night.
