We spoke to Arthouse-PR www.arthouse-pr.com to explore Europe’s most charming, quirky and down-right unconventional hotel suites for this year…
The White Rabbit Room, Glazebrook House UK
Built in 1670, Glazebrook House is a historic property in Devon and is now an award-winning boutique. Designed by Timothy Oulton, the hotel’s interior is playful and unconventional, modern and classic. With a fairytale theme running throughout the hotel, each room enjoys a sense pf playful whimsy. The White Rabbit room is furnished with lavish fittings, a sheepskin ‘baa baa bed’ and freestanding roll top bath.
Antarctica Master Suite, Hotel Ranga Iceland
Located on the southern coast of Iceland, Hotel Ranga is a four-star resort is home to the vast Antarctica Master Suite. It features modern luxurious interiors with a humorous twist or two. Among these are the gigantic bed and freestanding James Bond style mirrored bathtub, large penguin sculptures, leather sofas and a spacious private terrace.
Music Suite, Borgo Pignano, Italy
Borgo Pignano is a restored country estate dating back to Etruscan times in Tuscany. Within the 18th century villa, you’ll find 14 luxury rooms, including the newly-opened Music Suite. The Suite features Pompeian-style frescos, antique furniture and original artworks, plus a selection of musical instruments including a didgeridoo, guitar and grand piano.
Dragonfly Treehouse, Sweden
The Dragonfly treehouse is a surprising landmark amidst the deep Swedish Lapland. Made entirely of timber and wrapped in a sheet of rusted-brown metal, the suspended contemporary cabin – designed by Rintala Eggertsson Architects – overlooks a valley below.
Harbour Crane, The Netherlands
A suspended hideout in the city of Harlingen, The Netherlands, the Harbour Crane cabin offers a one-of-a-kind vertiginous experience. Located on the bank of the harbour, the Figee level luffing crane was built in 1967 and used until 1996 to load cargo ships. It was transformed a singular cabin hotel in the early 2000s. The former machine and control rooms offer a spacious area which is completed by a large terrace with a view on the Wadden Sea.
Art Suite 365, Ice Hotel Sweden
The Art Suite 365 concept was launched in November 2016 and became an immediate success. It offers a one night experience in the frozen atmosphere of an authentic ice palace – entirely sculpted by artists John Bark and Charli Kasselback. The temperature can drop down to -8 degree Celsius, so beds are covered with reindeer hides and thermal sleeping bags. The hotel’s warm section offers a well-deserved antidote in the form of a Swedish sauna.
