From private postcodes to basketball courts, these suites boast the lot.







VIENNA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA RESIDENCE, SWITZERLAND
An imposing statue of a bear and bull locked in mortal combat on the shores of Lake Lucerne is an unexpected sight but says something about the owner of the glamorous “health and wealth residence”, Austrian asset and fund manager Peter Puhringer. He recently gutted the old-fashioned Swiss mountain retreat to create Park Hotel Vitznau, a pristine, white modernist residence for himself, and a super-stylish hotel. There’s a young gun, Michelin two-starred chef, a knock-out wine cellar reputed to be worth more than $30 million and no need to wrangle silly old key cards as guestroom doors unlock as you approach. The property’s handsome suites (or residences) pay tribute to the organisations supported by Puhringer, including the charming Vienna Philharmonic with its musical murals, granite bathroom and lakefront balcony. Residences from CHF2100-4900 ($2898-$6763). More: www.parkhotel-vitznau.ch.
GRAHAM GREENE SUITE, HANOI
In 1951, Paris Match reporter Graham Greene stayed at the Metropole in Hanoi, drinking in the bar with fellow legendary correspondents Seymour Topping and Tillman Durdin. His former room, now the premier suite at the Sofitel Legend Metropole, captures the mood of the time with whirling ceiling fans, shuttered windows, a balcony overlooking the street and evocative interiors marrying French colonial elegance and the exoticism of Indochine. In the 1970s, the room served as part of the Australian embassy; more recent guests have included Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (the suite’s visitors’ book reveals a rollcall of celebrities and political heavyweights). $US2200 ($2831).

RAY CHARLES LIFESTYLE SUITE, PARIS
Quirky yet deeply luxurious Philippe Starck interiors and friendly service make Le Royal Monceau Raffles the antithesis of more traditional Parisian palace hotels and very popular with artists and musos. One of the favourite suites is named for Ray Charles, a long-time guest during the hotel’s former incarnation. Tucked into the mansard roof with lovely views, the suite is kitted out with art deco pieces from the property’s private collection, portraits of the artist by Arlette Kotchounian and a grand piano. Book a Jazz it Up package and enjoy an in-room, one-hour private concert accompanied by cocktails; from €2950 ($4285). Require a little more elbow room? The hotel’s presidential suites offer a hammam, gym, home cinema and the services of a florist and Michelin-starred chef. From €25,000.

HILLTOP ESTATE, FIJI
When the owner of the jewel-like Laucala Island Resort, Red Bull billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, is not in residence, his hilltop pad is available to rent, but by application or personal referral only. You’ll get a private chef, chauffeur, nanny and incredible views as well as access to the resort’s many toys including an 18-hole golf course and two-seater Super Falcon Mark II submarine. From $US44,000. More: www.laucala.com.
GRAND MANOR HOUSE WING, LONDON
A suite so large it requires its own postcode says it all, really. The sprawling Manor House Wing of Rosewood London has its own entrance, lift and a dedicated doorman and is the only hotel suite in the world with its own postcode. With six bedrooms, three living rooms and a large dining room, the second-floor wing, designed by Tony Chi and Associates, meshes contemporary verve with old-fashioned, burnished mahogany luxury. But it’s the little details that impress, such as personalised stationery (why not dash off a few notes using your private postcode), monogrammed pillowcases and bathrobes and a mini bar stocked by Fortnum & Mason. The hotel will also organise one-on-ones with leading British couturiers and jewellery designers, and behind-the-scenes access to London’s top shows. From £24,000 ($47,870) More: www.rosewoodhotels.com.
THE MAHARAJA APARTMENT, JAIPUR
This luxurious, two-bedroom crib at Sujan Rajmahal Palace served as private digs for two successive maharajas in a palace still owned by Jaipur’s royal family. Regular polo pit stop for Prince Charles, Rajmahal has hosted a long list of A-list houseguests including Jackie Kennedy and Queen Elizabeth II; their names now adorn the hotel’s new-look suites. Dating back to 1729 but remodelled in the 1930s, the recently reopened palace has a new five-star fit-out by Indian design darling Adil Ahmad. Stunning wallpapers and colourful fabrics and furnishings make this a cosy alternative to the nearby, and much larger, Rambagh Palace. The premier ­Maharaja’s Apartment features a large terrace perfect for al fresco dining. You’ll also enjoy the 24/7 services of a dedicated aide-de-camp and a butler. INR900,000 ($18,000); summer specials (to September 30) of INR367,000. More: www.sujanluxury.com.
THE DIPLOMAT TONY BENNETT SUITE, SAN FRANCISCO
In 1961, Bennett crooned “I left my heart in San Francisco …” for the first time in the legendary Venetian Room at Fairmont San Francisco. His favourite 22nd-floor suite at this Nob Hill landmark has just received a makeover and includes artworks by the singer. A handsome foyer separates the bedroom from the living and dining room (a second bedroom can be connected) but the view is the suite’s strong selling point — a 180-degree sweep taking in the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, East Bay, downtown and Twin Peaks. Purchase a special package and you’ll receive a box set of Bennett’s CDs together with a signed print of his painting of the Golden Gate Bridge. $US4999. More: www.fairmont.com.
DALEM JIWO SUITE, INDONESIA
Overlooking the 9th-century, UNESCO-listed Buddhist sanctuary of Borobudur in central Java, Amanjiwo claims one of the most beautiful suites in the formidable Amanresorts portfolio. So large it feels more like a mini-resort, Dalem Jiwo commands its own compound with private entrance, broad wraparound terrace and two sleeping pavilions with steps descending to a private 15m pool set into rice paddies. The large bedrooms feature terrazzo flooring, coconut wood and rattan furniture and decadent outdoor garden bathtubs. There are also thatched-roof bales for a spot of lounging, a grand dining rotunda affording gorgeous views to the misty mountains and an on-call butler. $US3630.

ROYAL PENTHOUSE SUITE, GENEVA
Famously the most expensive hotel suite on the planet, this spread at Hotel President Wilson is one for world leaders, oligarchs or anyone feeling the teeniest bit paranoid. Together with a dozen bedrooms and as many marble bathrooms, the suite features ­armoured doors, bullet-proof windows, a private elevator and access to a helipad for that quick getaway. ­Occupying the entire top floor of this Lake Geneva hotel, the suite also claims a grand piano, billiards table and gym. From CHF60,000.

THE HARDWOOD SUITE, LAS VEGAS
Perfect for Aussie NBA stars Matthew Dellavedova and Andrew Bogut, or your run-of-the-mill, cashed-up sporting tragic, this wacky Vegas two-floor suite at Palms Casino Resort features an indoor ­hardwood basketball court, professional locker room and “NBA-sized fold-out beds” allowing fans to sleep on court. More “usual” hotel accoutrements include king and queen beds, 11 television sets (watch your own game ­highlights anywhere in the suite), pool table, full bar and lounge with dance floor. $US25,000.
