With an increase in traveler demand for exclusive experiences and under-the-radar spots, resorts are tapping into the trend with unlisted suites – more private, lesser-known accommodations that serve as an escape from life’s bustle or the vacationing crowds. Below are a few options for those wanting to be in the know and in seclusion.
Secret Castle Suite in the Caribbean
Select room categories at Sanctuary Cap Cana are only available to those “in the know.” Bookable via the property’s VIP concierge, rooms such as the Imperial Suite provide exclusive access to the castle section of the resort with a furnished living room, oceanfront views and a spacious terrace with access to a private pool (pictured at top).
Barn on the Outside – A Suite Inside
At La Tourelle Resort & Spa, professionals can rent the Yellow Barn Suite, housed in a renovated historic barn amongst the Finger Lakes region’s wildlife on the outskirts of downtown Ithaca. Exactly 50 steps away from the main hotel, the suite contains a spacious three-story atrium room, a private bar, kitchenette, fireplace and dining table. The suite is situated next to a pond for enjoying quiet morning coffee with local herons and kingfishers.
Secluded Tower in the Bahamas with Private Casino Entry
The Reserve, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar’s luxury hotel-within-a-hotel concept, is comprised of 70 of the most impressive suites and villas at the 1,800-room oceanfront Bahamas resort. Located on the top floors of the East Tower and in a secluded separate tower with private poolside villas, features include a private check-in and driveway, 24/7 butler service, VIP lounge and a secret entryway to high limit slots at the Baha Mar Casino.
