Travel to Dubai


St Regis Dubai

27 November 2016

The St Regis Dubai doesn’t really do ‘small scale’, so the dimensions of its penthouse (9,828 square feet) should really come as no surprise.

However, as you walk out of your private elevator and into the Sir Winston Churchill suite – safe in the knowledge that it’s even bigger than the hotel’s ballroom – it’s still difficult not to lose your cool at the sheer grandeur of it all.

Huge hallways lead to three bedrooms, a study, a kitchen, a 12-seat dining room, and four (yes, four) living spaces. Oh, and up the grand spiral staircase there’s a plunge pool overlooking the city – it’s just a mind-boggling space.

Churchill is of course prevalent throughout, with photographs, paintings, and even his La Corona Cubano cigars.

But it’s not just the size that makes this quite possibly the best hotel suite in the world. It’s the classic design (marble floors and muted tones), the discreet service, and the fact that it’s probably the closest you’ll ever get to feeling like royalty that make it well worth the stay.
