Where: St. Andrews, Scotland
What it costs: $1,900 per night
What’s inside: The Royal & Ancient suite enjoys an exceptional location above golf’s most famous par 4 — the Road Hole — on golf’s most famous course, the Old Course. The 1,257-square-foot space pairs a fabulous bedroom with a spacious Kohler bathroom with twin sinks, a separate bath and shower room, as well as a guest WC. Tactile fabrics and eye-catching detail are everywhere, and natural light floods the suite through floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto your own private balconies in both the lounge and bedroom. For golfers, the views are unrivaled. The stunning beauty of the natural links leading to the West Sands beach and the distant towers of St Andrews is unforgettable.
What else you get: Those staying in the Royal & Ancient have use of its parlour room, a small kitchen area with a dining table for up to six guests. Room service is available 24/7 and the resort’s team of expert chefs is always on hand to ensure all guest requirements are met. There’s also a pretty decent golf course on your doorstep.
For other budgets: Eden Suites — which don’t overlook the Old Course — start at about $400 per night.
