From secluded islands in the tropics to idyllic mountain settings and some of the world’s most exciting cities, no stone has been left unturned in seeking out the most extraordinary places to stay in the world.

Topping the list is the US with 24 suites being named to the Elite Collection, followed by 10 suites in the UK and nine in France.
