Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, UAE

Royal Penthouse Suite

Occupying the entire top floor of the hotel, the 16,867-sq-ft Royal Penthouse Suite is fit for royalty. A private elevator takes you directly to the suite, which has double-height ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, and is outfitted in Italian marble and rich wood. The lavish space has a staggeringly large 3,702-sq-ft living room, but if that’s not enough, the 20-person majlis should suit your entertaining needs. Right off the living room is the terrace, with views of the Dubai skyline, including the iconic Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab. Should you prefer a more intimate setting, head to the master bedroom, which connects to a 1,001-sq-ft terrace and a white Italian-marble bathroom.
