A very luxe space

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - SPACES -

DUBAI has seen the open­ing of an­other lux­u­ri­ous, over- the- top suite for hol­i­day­mak­ers of the 1% va­ri­ety, this time at the St Regis Dubai. For the princely sum of US$ 20,420 ( RM84,400) , guests can live like a king or queen at the newly opened Im­pe­rial Suite, the lat­est ad­di­tion to the city’s crowded mar­ket­place for lux­u­ri­ous ac­com­mo­da­tions.

At 85sqm, the Im­pe­rial Suite mea­sures larger than the ho­tel ball­room and spans two floors.

And though, like many of the city’s glit­ter­ing ho­tels, the suite is dec­o­rated in el­e­gant, stately fur­nish­ings, its piece de re­sis­tance is an in- room spi- ral stair­case that leads to the cen­tral dome of the ho­tel, where guests will find a rooftop plunge pool and ma­jlis ( which in Ara­bic means “a place of sit­ting”) that of­fer panoramic views of land­scaped gar­dens.

Along with three bed­rooms, the suite also fea­tures a liv­ing room, 12- seater din­ing rooms, study and lounge area.

Lo­cated in the Al Habtoor City in Dubai, the 234- room ho­tel is styled in French beaux- arts ar­chi­tec­ture and neo- clas­si­cal in­te­ri­ors and opened last year.

Lux­ury car afi­ciona­dos can also stay at the one- bed­room Bent­ley suite, up­hol­stered in leather fin­ishes, colours, pat­terns and wood ve­neers rem­i­nis­cent of the Mulsanne, the brand’s flag­ship per­for­mance lux­ury car. — AFP Re­laxnews
