LODHI POOL SUITES
AMAN NEW DELHI, India
STATS: 1- to 3-bedroom suites, from 2,800 square feet, each with living room, dining room, garden, and swimming pool
LOOK: Subcontinent serene. Tranquility channeled via subdued colors, placid pools, and cool stone floors complemented by handmade rugs and decorative light screens.
PROFILE: An urban resort, the Aman New Delhi works hard to create a calm, insular compound of reflecting pools and stone walls within a courtyard design. The just-debuted Lodhi Pool Suites go a step further, offering accommodations in a separate building on the far side of the hotel pool, each with its own plunge pool and private garden furnished with a daybed for relaxing. Butlers -- each suite comes with one -- can cater for up to six guests in the dining room. The living rooms are paneled in dark wood, and bathrooms feature sliding screens that separate the dressing areas from the facilities. The three-bedroom suites are bi-level, with master bedrooms and terraces aloft.

GANSEVOORT TURKS & CAICOS, Providenciales
STATS: 3,700-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath abode with full kitchen, 2 terraces, living room, and dining room
LOOK: White-and-brown palette with blue accents provides a cool ambience in this oceanfront indulger that features spacious outdoor patios.
PROFILE: After opening hotels in New York and Miami, the mini-chain Gansevoort hopped offshore with its new Turks & Caicos locale, albeit with urbanite-appealing amenities such as the Exhale Spa with its signature CoreFusion classes and a branch of Manhattan’s popular Bagatelle Bistro. The resort’s residential-chic penthouse sports a designer kitchen tricked out with a Gaggenau cooktop, Rosenthal Loft china, and Guy Degrenne flatware, plus a dining counter as well as a table. You’ll find aqua-therapy indoors and out: One bedroom harbors a free-standing bathtub filled from an unexpected spigot on the ceiling, and a wraparound terrace hosts a hot tub. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer unobstructed ocean views on a quiet, park-buffered end of popular Grace Bay Beach.

SLS HOTEL AT BEVERLY HILLS
STATS: 1,900-square-foot, 1-bedroom suite (expandable to 3 bedrooms) with 2 baths, kitchen, dining room, 2 living rooms, and bar
LOOK: Urban sleek with Philippe Starck’s signature cheek. White tables and chairs pop against a backdrop of neutral-to-brown walls, fabrics, and window shades.
PROFILE: L.A.’s new SLS unites a hospitality dream team: design by Philippe Starck, food by Spanish chef José Andrés, retail by Moss, uniforms by designer Pascal Humbert, and personal training from celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak and staff. Those A-list credentials express themselves in the sixth-floor Presidential Suite, featuring an eggshell-shaped bathtub, a vanity mirror embedded over a photographic black-and-white portrait, a Kinesis Personal machine for in-room workouts, and an Apple computer. Optional extras include a personal butler and a liquid-nitrogen cart for molecular gastronomy experiments or instantly frozen daiquiris. Views of the rooftop pool and cabanas frame the L.A. party scene outdoors.
DETAILS: $5,000 nightly, slshotels.com
