When only the best of the best will do: The world’s top 100 hotel suites in 2022 revealed, from Colorado to Australia via Scotland and Paris

  • The ranking includes a suite in Paris that features an exact replica of a bed in Marie Antoinette’s quarters 
  • A suite in Scotland described as an ‘opulent extravaganza’ has also been deemed worthy of inclusion 
  • Here we reveal our pick of the ranking, with the full list presented at the very bottom of the article 

If the best won’t do for a hotel room, if only the best of the best will cut the mustard, look no further. 

Lifestyle magazine Elite Traveler has drawn up a list of the 100 best hotel suites in the world for 2022, suites where luxury is taken to the next level and beyond.

The ranking includes a £22,000-a-night suite in Paris that features an exact replica of a bed in Marie Antoinette’s quarters, lodges set on an eroded volcanic crater in Rwanda, a room in a Scottish hotel described as an ‘opulent extravaganza’ and a four-floor chalet in Colorado costing a cool £33,000 ($45,500) a night.

This year, though, eco-credentials have been taken into account.

Elite Traveler says: ‘Only the very best have been selected for our annual Top 100 Suites – as featured in the print edition of Elite Traveler. This year, our criteria has been more selective than ever. Not just the grandest, most luxurious suites in the world are making the cut, but those that also have inspiring initiatives in place – from employee volunteer programs and community outreach to eco-friendly, sustainable practices.’

THE MURAKA SUITE, CONRAD MALDIVES RANGALI ISLAND: ‘With its white facade and futuristic design, The Muraka makes a striking impression. But just wait until you get inside,’ writes Elite Traveler. ‘Enter this two-level suite on its upper floor; the lower floor is 16 ft (4.8m) beneath the ocean’s surface. There, you will find the master bedroom surrounded by a plethora of tropical fish swimming across an innovative 180-degree window. There are a further two bedrooms, a sundeck and an infinity pool on its upper decks.’ According to the magazine, the hotel will help you direct and star in your own movie throughout your stay, and for young explorers, an underwater safari can be arranged, or a teepee can be set up along with an ‘assortment of treats for a magical night under the surface’. Stays start from £36,676 ($50,000)

CASA DEL BORGO MAISONETTE, BORGO PIGNANO, TUSCANY: According to Elite Traveler, the Casa del Borgo maisonette ‘exemplifies traditional Tuscan style, with simple furnishings and decor creating an atmosphere that feels as though you’ve arrived at a family home’. It says: ‘Downstairs is a spacious communal area with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area that is perfect for enjoying those long, raucous meals for which Italy is famed. Sleeping quarters consist of one master bedroom, complete with elegant solid wood furniture and inviting Italian bed linens, and two additional bedrooms with views across the Tuscan countryside.’ The maisonette’s ‘hidden courtyard terrace’ is its best feature, the magazine reveals. Stays start from £1,022 ($1,393)

IMPERIAL SUITE, LE BRISTOL PARIS, FRANCE: ‘Classic French style is embodied in Le Bristol Paris’s 3,475-sq-ft (323 sq m) Imperial Suite, with refined touches and thoughtful embellishments,’ according to Elite Traveler. The suite’s main bedroom ‘has a floral yet understated decor with quintessential French fabrics’, while the ‘adjoining bathroom is decked out with a deep bathtub, separate rain shower and twin vanity unit, as well as a steam room’. In the 12-seat dining room, guests can ‘enjoy a culinary experience by chef Eric Frechon, who leads the hotel’s three-Michelin-starred restaurant’. The magazine says that the suite offers views across the hotel’s ‘stately gardens’ – ‘a remarkable feature in itself considering the hotel’s central Paris location’. Stays start from £11,524 ($15,711)
