ESPERANZA

“Our family has stayed at the beautiful Esperanza Resort on a number of occasions. The food is excellent; the sunsets and views are spectacular. My dad, brother, and I enjoy the golf course while my wife, mom, and sister-in-law spend time at the beach relaxing with the children.”

THE PENINSULA SHANGHAI

“Too many people write about the material bells and whistles of a top suite. Yes, there’s the wow factor, but the real question has to go beyond style to substance…. and service. Using that metric, the Peninsula Shanghai wins hands down. The room works on every conceivable level, starting with the bathroom, the lighting, the technology, the phones, the towels (I liked them so much I bought eight of them), the beds and, of course, the overall space. Did I mention the built-in nail dryer in the dressing room wall?”

INTERCONTINENTAL, HONG KONG

“The colorful ships and traditional junks crisscrossing Victoria Harbour sail so close to your suite’s glass walls that you can practically reach out and touch them. It’s one of those rare hotels where you can do the best sightseeing without even leaving your room—especially during the nightly Symphony of Lights show. And you get those same views even when you’re in your oversized Jacuzzi bathtub.”

THE RITZ CARLTON, ST. THOMAS

“I recently vacationed at The Ritz-Carlton in St. Thomas and was thoroughly impressed. From the floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of St. John to the very accommodating staff, it made this much-needed vacation even more enjoyable!”

GRAND RESIDENCES, RIVIERA MAYA

“This suite will suit any A-lister accustomed to the finer things; they’ll also appreciate the privacy the accommodations provide. It’s overlooking the ocean and virtually on the beach, and for that reason, the outdoor area here is ultra-fabulous. My husband said it all:‘I feel like we might really be in heaven.’ I agree wholeheartedly.”

PORTRAIT ROMA

“The suite is like your own pied-à-terre in the city with a wraparound terrace overlooking Rome—a fantastic spot for breakfast with a view. It’s decorated with a Ferragamo theme, including old family photos and original shoe models, plus the highest quality Ferragamo leather details throughout. It’s a true hideaway atop the Ferragamo men’s store on Via Condotti and my favorite suite in Italy…and the world!”

JADE MOUNTAIN

“One of my favorite suites is the Galaxy Sanctuary at Jade Mountain in Saint Lucia. It’s the ultimate suite for privacy even with no fourth wall and has the most breathtaking panoramic views of the iconic Pitons. The massive infinity pool is simply mesmerizing and perfect for a late night dip. Major domo butlers cater to your every whim leaving you every reason not to leave for days.”

51 BUCKINGHAM GATE

“Walking into the Jaguar suite at Buckingham Gate is like walking into another world. In one room, there’s a stand-up fireplace. In another room, framed photos of the most beautiful car in the world. There’s no other place I’d rather stay in London.”
