Review of the Turquoise Suite
I very rarely fall in love with hotel bedrooms. To me they are all pretty much the same; bland and boring. There are a few exceptions but on the whole, most are pretty blah. That, however, cannot be said about The Turquoise Suite at JW Marriott.
I’m going to be writing more about JW Marriott but all you need to know for this post is that the Turquoise suite is set in the Architecture School. There are several different turquoise suites; one has a pool and one has a tower dining area.
Firstly, let’s talk about the lobby and lift, which I know is a strange place to start but at the Marriott, all lifts and hallways are themed.
The hallway was filled with architectural pictures and the lift with architectural facts. As soon as you walk in you get the feeling you are in a very different place. The suites seem to be in twos, leading off from the main hallway and the doors are something else.
As soon as you open the door you are hit with light and very welcome air conditioning. And the room as you can see is so beautiful, but for me it’s the little details like the architectural pictures, the carpet with its architectural design the way the coving over the bed looks like an architectural structure in itself.
Everything matches with a theme of turquoise, mint, and white, a colour scheme I would never have thought about before but I’m all over.
I don’t really know how to describe this dream of a room so let me take you on a picture tour.
The Living area of The Turquoise Suite
My most favourite place in the whole place was this cupboard that looks like a wardrobe but is a cupboard containing coffee tea, bottled water, cups, glasses and plates.
I also loved the chaise longue in front of the double-height window; it was just such an amazing place to rest.
The living area also contained another settee and chair, a side table, a larger table, and countless chairs.
We had dinner one evening in our room on the larger table; it was delicious and on arrival, we had a cake waiting on the side table for us with a note from the manager.
The Bedroom of the Turquoise Suite
The biggest, most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! There were two chairs that looked out over the balcony and a settee at the end of the bed. At the end of the day, the room attendant would put out freshwater by the beds, close the curtain and turn the bed down.
The bedroom led to the bathroom through two sliding doors and the bathroom was unbelievable, with a separate toilet inside it, a bath, a waterfall shower and several other showers, which we never understood. We have never seen so many showers! The two vanity sinks at either side of the door were stocked with everything you could need. The bathroom also contained a small wardrobe with bags and hats and room to store clothes.
The small touches
As you will have gathered, the architectural details were everywhere, from the geometric wallpaper to the lamps. These small touches were everywhere.
The absolute icing on the cake was the balcony; it was huge with two areas and two large lounge bed-settees, tables, and fans.
This suite was an absolute dream, one I can’t recommend enough to anyone who fancies a little bit of luxury mixed with white, light, and bright.
