From Dubai to Edinburgh: The world's best hotel suites
Welcome to Sensational Suites, the show that explores some of Earth's most iconic and luxurious hotel rooms.
Each episode sees its host take the audience on a first-person (and often irreverent) tour of an extravagant hotel residence or presidential suite. From underwater bedrooms to solid gold toilets, nothing is too over-the-top for Sensational Suites.
Warning: These videos will make you sensationally jealous.
Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh
Scone and Crombie Suite
"Located on Princes Street, the Scottish capital’s busiest thoroughfare, the grand old hotel’s interior décor, food, furnishing and amenities each are built and installed to pay proud homage to its Scottish heritage. The hotels 168 bedrooms and 20 suites, however, have also been given extensive renovations overseen by Sir Rocco Forte’s sister, world-renowned interior designer Olga Polizzi."
Emerald Palace Kempinski, Dubai
The Royal Suite
"Today we are here at the Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai, and you might be thinking “gosh, that’s quite a posh name for a hotel” and you’d be right. Yes, the Emerald Palace is so named because this place looks more akin to the home of royalty than to hotel guests. It’s also absolutely massive."
The Langham, London
The Sterling Suite
"Sat right in the centre of London, the Langham Hotel recently celebrated its 150th birthday. But of the 350 guest rooms and suites, the star of the show must surely be the Sterling Suite – London’s largest and most extravagant hotel room."
Rixos Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi
The Superior Villa
"We’re here at the Rixos Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi. An all-inclusive and all exclusive resort about 20-minutes away from the UAE’s capital of Abu Dhabi. This is the 4th Rixos hotel out here in the UAE, but it is certainly the brand's most opulent. The entire place has been designed to look like an ottoman place, and you can see that throughout each of the 378 hotels and suites. But the most extravagant room of the hotel is surely the Superior Villa. Have a look inside."
V Hotel, Dubai
The Sky Villa
"The Sky Villa is the V Hotel in Dubai’s most extravagant suite. And at US$10,000 per night, it should be."
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Dubai
Deluxe One-Bedroom Suite
"Built on an artificial island with architecture designed to resemble the sail of a dhow, the Burj Al Arab has become an emblem for the city. Let Esquire be your guide inside one of the world's most luxurious hotels, and suite 2402."
