Key selling points: Decked in rich teakwood with Thai styled art and furnishings, this elite expanse has a living room that can accommodate up to 18, and a formal private dining room/boardroom for 12. Pops of lavender and yellow brighten the regal master bedroom.
Standout service: When a US guest bought a puppy too young to be vaccinated, which would necessitate a long quarantine in the US, the concierge offered to adopt the dog, and, four years later, still emails the guest pooch updates.
