St. Regis Hotels & Resorts partnered Bentley Motors to develop the first Bentley Suite in the Middle East.
The Bentley Suite at The St. Regis Dubai in Al Habtoor City, inspired by the bespoke craftsmanship of the Bentley Mulsanne, 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,” said 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. Located on the fourth floor of The St. Regis Dubai, the custom-designed one-bedroom Bentley Suite features a spacious entry foyer, generous living room and dining area with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the hotel’s manicured gardens, as well as a lavish marble bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and dedicated dressing area.
“We are honoured to continue our design partnership with St. Regis with the debut of the Bentley Suite in Dubai, and look forward to collaborating with St. Regis and Bentley Motors on innovations in the future,” said Liana Hawes, Creative Director, Wimberly Interiors.
Upon entering the 195 square metre (2,098 square feet) 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 center 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.
Designed and engineered in Crewe from the ground-up, the Mulsanne is the pinnacle Bentley model and epitomizes Bentley’s heritage and passion for power and speed.
In addition to the Bentley Suite, The St. Regis Dubai offers guests an exquisite Bentley Mulsanne as its signature courtesy car.
Complementing the collaboration, the hotel’s St. Regis Bar features a mural of a vintage Bentley Mulsanne by artist Roberto Raad.
Rates for the suite start from AED 25,000 per night.
