Designed by Wimberly Interiors, region’s first Bentley Suite at the St Regis Dubai in Al Habtoor City is inspired by the bespoke craftsmanship of the pinnacle Bentley Mulsanne.
This 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.The Bentley Suite features hand-crafted finishes and furnishings throughout.
Located on the fourth floor of The St Regis Dubai, one-bedroom Bentley Suite features a spacious entry foyer, living room and dining area with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the hotel’s gardens, as well as a 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,” comments Liana Hawes, creative director, Wimberly Interiors.
Upon entering the 195m2 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, 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, a LED chandelier inspired by the headlights of the Mulsanne takes center stage above the 12-seat, smoked fiddle back 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 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.
Complementing the collaboration, the hotel’s St. Regis Bar features a mural of a vintage Bentley Mulsanne by artist Roberto Raad.
