Enjoy this tour of eight exquisite suites that blur the line between sweet dreams and perfect reality.
The views across New York’s fashionable SoHo district can been admired through the windows of 11 Howard’s Scandinavian-inspired suites. Designed by famed Space Copenhagen, the interiors are offset with Original Aby Rosen’s personal art collection. In typical Algarve style, Vila Monte, situated in Moncarapacho, Portugal, uses whitewashed surfaces and natural wood in the suites to create bright, airy spaces that are as welcoming as they are contemporary. Nestled on a pristine coral sand cove on the southern coast of Mauritius, Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa is luxuriously spread over 36 acres of tropical gardens. The 44-suites are fluid and spacious, with large windows allowing the sunshine to bathe the interiors with light. Located in Seoul’s fashion-conscious, upmarket Gangnam district, Glad Live is a beacon of vibrancy where high style and sleek design create an all-night hotspot for luxury, music, art, and more. The rooms and suites have been designed to accommodate the shift of partying guests from the hotel’s club to its rooms. Set amid the volcanic beauty of Gran Canaria, Bohemia Suites & Spa (pictured) is a sophisticated lifestyle oasis for adults, with suites defined by a contemporary and futuristic design concept. On the water’s edge at Nacka Strand, Hotel J is a short drive or a 15-minute sail away from Stockholm’s city center. The hotel’s nautical design concept embodies a distinct seaside feel where natural materials blend to create an authentic feeling of comfort and ease. Like a luxury cruise liner perched on the Croatian hillside, the seductive, minimalist curves of Hotel Lone‘s design are influenced by the area’s unique landscape. In the rooms and suites, large mirrors cling to the walls at seemingly random intervals, letting reflections of the surrounding nature seep in through sweeping glass panes. Located directly across from Taksim Gezi Park, Gezi Hotel Bosphorus offers its guests a retreat right in the heart of Istanbul. The design of each guestroom has been inspired by an element of one of Mondrian’s paintings, yet sumptuous materials soften the strong, linear forms typically associated with the Dutch painter.
