Elite Traveler July-August 2018


THE BACCARAT SUITE BACCARAT HOTEL, NEW YORK Think of Baccarat, and the heritage brand’s fine French crystal glassware comes to mind, so it’s only appropriate that Baccarat Hotel — launched in 2015 and thought to be the first of a bigger collection— is bejeweled with crystalware and finished with the craftsmanship seen in their sparkling creations. The one-bedroom 1,740-sq-ft Baccarat Suite encapsulates this magic, fusing modern Parisian chic with magnificent detail in champagne, ivory, platinum and chocolate brown. White marble surfaces, gleaming wood paneling and herringbone floors are the backdrop for custom furnishings, crystal adornments and a mural of a fantastical garden. Gaze out at the city through floor-to-ceiling windows and sip champagne in your ensuite bar. From$16,000 per night.

You’d expect a hotel designed by Giorgio Armani to be stylish, and the Armani Dubai Suite has the signature hallmarks of Armani — it’s all clean, subtle sophistication. The suite occupies the 39th floor of the towering Burj Khalifa, offering bird’s-eye views of the bustling city belowwithout the crowds. The calming, neutral decor is a refreshing palate cleanser to the outrageous designs seen elsewhere in Dubai, but with glossy touches such as the polished wooden bathtub. The 4,200-sq-ft sanctuary has two bedrooms, living and dining rooms, full-service bar, pantry, private gym and study, and all rooms blend seamlessly into one another — there are no door handles, only sleek sliding doors, which add to the zen-like atmosphere. From$8,170 per night. Contact Mark Kirby,

Entirely unique in its resplendent design, this dazzling suite is the result of the hotel’s collaboration with jewelry designer Martin Katz. The interiors of the 5,000-sq-ft three-bedroom retreat combine Art Deco inspiration and love of fine jewelry with contemporary furnishings in purple and soft gray. Breathtaking Manhattan views can be enjoyed from the suite’s 12-seat dining room and living room with historic fireplace and grand piano. A two-story cascading crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling and suspended display cases showcase a jewelry collection valued at over $1.5m. Soak up the rooftop views from the stone spa of your landscaped terrace and arrange a private consultation with the famous jewelry designer. A stay in the Jewel Suite comes with a complimentary Martin Katz diamond microband ring. From $25,000 per night.
