Dubai-based Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, announced in a media statement yesterday that its impressive suites at Burj Al Arab, Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah, and Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa have all been featured in Elite Traveler’s ‘Top 101 Hotel Suites in the World’.
As the annual selection made by the editors of Elite Traveler and a panel of celebrity readers, the list provides a literal private jet flight plan to the world’s most spectacular accommodation.
Emperor Franz Joseph Suite at Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah
The US-based private jet magazine uses the awards to highlight the year’s most exciting designs, services, and amenities – all in amazing locations around the world. At the Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah in Istanbul, the Emperor Franz Joseph Suite has been recognised for its ‘majestic colour combo and princely Euro vibe’.
The presidential suite, which is available for $3,873 a night and boasts unobstructed views of the city’s Golden Horn, is named after the Austro-Hungarian emperor who stayed at Pera Palace.
Royal Suite at Jumeirah Messilah Beach
Completed in May 2013, Jumeirah Messilah Beach in Kuwait is one of Jumeirah’s newest openings. The Royal Suite, available from $6,000 per night, is praised by Elite Traveler for ‘taking your privacy seriously with its own hallway and elevator, as well as discreet personal butler service’.
Ornate details, such as hand-painted cushions and curtains, lend a regal atmosphere to a space that includes three bedrooms, a Kuwaiti-style meeting room and a master bathroom with a large Jacuzzi and jetted shower.
Royal Suite at Burj Al Arab
Spread over two floors and measuring 780 square metres, the stately and opulent Royal Suite at Burj Al Arab in Dubai has lavishly appointed interiors, a majestic colour scheme and sumptuous furnishings. Elite Traveler notes that ‘no detail has been overlooked in this exuberant Arabian palace, where the four-poster canopy bed rotates, the marble spa tub sports Swarovski faucets and the iPads are made of 24K gold’.
Piers Schreiber, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Jumeirah Group, said: “We are delighted to have three of our magnificent hotels honoured in Elite Traveler’s list of ‘Top 101 Suites in the World’ for 2013.
This recognition is testament to the talented teams at each of the hotels, who ensure that every detail of a stay delivers an imaginative and exhilarating experience to match the splendour of the location and the design of the suites.”
