Large, lavish and luxurious – when only the best will do, Europe’s 5* hotels offer some of the most extraordinary super-suites in the world. From onyx bathrooms to unbeatable views, private lifts to personal pianos, here we hand-pick 6 of the most luxurious suites in Europe:
Taking up the entire 31st floor, the impressive King Presidential Suite at the Waldorf Astoria in Berlin even has its own piano, so you can serenade your other half if you’re enjoying a romantic break. Huge expanses of glass, and two balconies, give incredible vistas across the German capital. The suite has its very own private entrance and there’s a beautiful gilded wall which lets light into the master bedroom. Bespoke porcelain from the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin provides the finishing touches.
Living the high life
The Roman Penthouse at Regina Hotel Baglioni offers unparalleled luxury. The £11,000-a-night suite has 6,000sq ft of space, all styled with beautiful bespoke décor and carefully sourced antiques. But, as beautiful as the inside is, it’s the outside of this stunning penthouse which is truly magical. The wraparound terrace provides 360 degree views of the Eternal City, meaning you can sink into the private Jacuzzi pool with a cocktail made especially for you by your in-room barman and gaze out at the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum and the Vatican City.
Fit for royalty
The Royal Penthouse at London’s Corinthia Hotel even has its own private internal lift to take you between its two floors. Overlooking the River Thames, the penthouse suite has two bedrooms and bathrooms clad in honey-coloured onyx and Skyros marble. There’s a walk-in wine cellar, a spa suite, oak-parquet floors and hand-made furniture including goatskin bedside tables, walnut bedframes and a dining table made from Makassar ebony, which can seat 10 guests in case you want to do some entertaining.
In the swim
Combining a delightfully authentic feel with the ultimate in elegance and luxury, the presidential suite at the Hotel Cala di Volpe in Sardinia even has its own private swimming pool. There are terraces with sociable circular seating, beautiful vistas across the Mediterranean and three bedrooms with romantic white-canopied beds.
While the view from atop the Tour Eiffel is undeniably beautiful, the view of the tower from inside the Eiffel Suite at the Dorchester Collection’s Plaza Athénéé is simply stunning. Sitting on the 8th floor, the Eiffel Suite gives guests a truly unique vista of one of the world’s most famous landmarks. Every room in the 1,400sq ft suite has large windows offering picture-perfect views of the tower, even from the bathroom.
Film star style
Cannes is renowned for hosting Hollywood A-listers for its renowned film festival every year. And, many of them stay in the penthouse suite in the Grand Hyatt Hotel Martinez on the Croisette. Decked out in Art Deco style, with its own hammam and sauna at your disposal as well as a huge terrace with a Jacuzzi granting incredible views of the Bay of Cannes, you probably won’t want to leave the suite too much. But, if you can tear yourself away, the Martinez is also home to a two-star Michelin restaurant, La Palme D’or.
These suites are truly some of the most incredible places to stay on the planet, destinations in their own right, offering spectacular accommodation, incredible views and unrivalled luxury.
