The Bentley Suite Living Room.
St. Regis Hotels & Resorts and Bentley Motors have introduced a new level of luxury to the Middle East with the debut of region’s first Bentley Suite at The St. Regis Dubai in Al Habtoor City.
The Bentley Suite is inspired by the bespoke craftsmanship of the Bentley Mulsanne limousine. This is the third Bentley Suite in the world, following the launch of suites at The St. Regis New York in 2012 and The St. Regis Istanbul last year.
“We are proud to extend our global partnership with Bentley to the Middle East where we recently unveiled the first of three St. Regis hotels to open in Dubai,” says Jim Petrus, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “The Bentley Suite at The St. Regis Dubai in Al Habtoor City is designed for the modern aficionado of luxury and performance, exemplifying the heritage and commitment to excellence of both brands.”
The Bentley Suite, designed by Wimberly Interiors, features hand-crafted finishes and one-of-a-kind furnishings throughout, combining the refined style associated with the experience of a Bentley with the impeccable elegance of the St. Regis brand.
Located on the fourth floor of The St. Regis Dubai, the custom-designed one-bedroom Bentley Suite features a spacious entry foyer, living room and dining area with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the hotel’s gardens, as well as a lavish marble bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and dedicated dressing area.
On entering the 195 square metre suite through bespoke Bentley-painted double doors, guests are greeted by the defining characteristics of the luxury automobile brand: a blend of cream and neutral tones, set against the rich wood finishes, elegant marble floors, and leather accents on handcrafted furnishings. The entrance to the suite features polished steel detailing and a sleek walnut veneer ceiling.
In the living room, an LED chandelier inspired by the headlights of the Mulsanne takes centre stage above the 12-seat, smoked fiddleback veneer dining table. Adding to the room’s mix of rich textures is a carved rug reminiscent of the matrix grille on the Mulsanne. Consistent with Bentley’s ‘hidden delights’ concept, the main wall slides back to expose a TV screen and five Breitling clocks keeping time across major gateway cities.
The adjacent study echoes Bentley’s signature Mulliner room with veneer walls, a silk carpet and a luxurious porpoise sofa adorned with cushions featuring Bentley seat belt detailing. Offering residential serenity, this study interprets the signature concept of concealing to reveal a custom made multi-compartment coffee table and Bentley ice lacquer and porpoise hide tray detail.
The master bedroom features stitched leather walls and bedside tables inspired by the Mulsanne Speed wing emblem in Burr walnut. In the dressing room, Bentley’s signature diamond detailing is etched into the frame of the mirror.
The St. Regis Dubai offers guests a Bentley Mulsanne as its courtesy car. Complementing the collaboration, the hotel’s St. Regis Bar features a mural of a vintage Bentley Mulsanne by artist Roberto Raad.
During their stay, guests will experience renowned hallmarks of the St. Regis brand, including signature St. Regis Butler Service. Guests will also experience a chauffeured transfer to the hotel in a Bentley Mulsanne. Available for booking on www.stregis.com/duubai, the rate starts at AED 25,000 ($A 9463) per night.
