The Sexiest Suites in Asia
We’re suckers for a sexy suite. And there’s no better place to find one than in Asia's luxe hotels. We round up the raciest of them all.
Aman Tokyo, Japan
Tucked away in the top section of the silvery Otemachi Tower in Tokyo’s upmarket business district, the Aman Tokyo is a master class in sophisticated Japanese design. Mirroring the cathedral-like lobby, the Aman Suite blends washi-paper shoji screens, blonde camphor wood walls, black basalt bathrooms and smouldering city views to heart-racing effect.
Keemala Phuket, Thailand
Phuket’s latest luxury resort is pure fantasy. A veritable Hobbit village of glammed-up clay cottages, sexy safari tents and cocooning bird's nest villas – but the super-luxe treehouse suites are the true showstoppers. Dangling amid the palm trees like giant Christmas ornaments, each is split over two levels and has romantic bed canopies and private half-moon infinity pools.
