Hotel suites don’t get more sumptuous than this – as any globetrotting millionaire can confirm.

Private jet lifestyle magazine Elite Traveler has drawn up its annual list of the 100 best hotel suites in the world for 2023 – a guide that’s described as a ‘definitive index of the most opulent, extravagant and decadent accommodations on the planet’ .

In a new twist this year, the suites have been divided into 10 categories, from the best suites in recently-opened hotels to the top family-friendly suites around the world.

The list includes a hotel room with ‘showstopper’ views of the Chicago skyline, a wine lover’s suite with a bed that’s been carved into a wooden port barrel, and a historic French enclave with walls painted by an 18th-century artist who worked for Marie Antoinette.

Elite Traveler says: ‘Exceptional amenities, stunning design and over-the-top attention to detail ensure these suites are a cut above the rest.’

Below are some of the breathtaking suites that have made it on this exclusive list – scroll down to the very bottom to see the index of luxury in full…

THE BARON SUITE, HOTEL CHATEAU DU GRAND-LUCE, LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE: Elite Traveler declares that this suite, listed in the ‘Editor’s Choice’ category, is a ‘strong contender for the most lavish suite in all of Europe’. It offers ‘fabulous views’ of the hotel’s neoclassical gardens, has a private library, and the living room’s walls have been painted by 18th-century artist Jean-Baptiste Pillement. There is only one other place in the world you’ll find a painted wall by this artist – the Petit Trianon, Marie Antoinette’s private garden palace at Versailles. Stays start from £12,365 ($15,000) per night

ARTISTS VILLA, AMANYARA, TURKS AND CAICOS: According to Elite Traveler, the best part about this suite is its ‘vast’ outdoor space, which is complete with several lounges, sundecks and dining spots that lead out to the 108ft (33m) infinity pool. It says: ‘Beyond, the pure-white sand and glistening ocean beckon.’ It’s ranked in the ‘Top Beach Suites’ category. Stays start from £14,853 ($18,000) per night 

PRESIDENTIAL SUITE, THE YEATMAN HOTEL, VILA NOVA DE GAIA, PORTUGAL: Housed in a hotel that’s a ‘veritable mecca for wine lovers’, this suite, listed in the ‘Editor’s Choice’ category, features a bed that has been carved into a wooden Port barrel, Elite Traveler reveals. Its bedrooms and living areas lead to a terrace with a private swimming pool and garden with ‘magical views of the Porto skyline’ – use the suite’s telescope to get a closer look at the view. Stays start from £2,058 ($2,495) per night 

INFINITY SUITE, THE LANGHAM CHICAGO: Elite Traveler says that this Editor’s-Choice-category-listed suite offers ‘sweeping views’ of the Chicago skyline, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. There are floor-to-ceiling windows in most rooms, but the bathrooms are the ‘real showstoppers’ – the deep-soaking tub, pictured, looks out on an ‘exceptional’ Chicago panorama. Stays start from £9,906 ($12,000) per night 

GRAND SUITE, ROYAL MANSOUR, MARRAKESH, MOROCCO: This suite, ranked as an Editor’s Choice, is ‘the stuff of legend’.
