From Beyoncé and Jay Z, to Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, celebrities and their entourages spend their getaways in the glow of glam hotels and villas — so why shouldn’t you? KAYAK.com.au is rolling out the red carpet with a round-up of some of the world’s best A-list suites and villas suitable for groups.
Las Vegas, USA
Vegas is the ultimate celebrity playground, with the likes of Justin Bieber and Kendrick Lamar regularly hitting up lavish pool parties, such as Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Kick back in one of the many poolside cabanas (bottle service, of course), and continue the VIP treatment in the hotel’s Penthouse Real World. With three luxurious bedrooms and three spectacular bathrooms – one of which has a six-person mosaic hot tub overlooking the Las Vegas Strip – this suite would be sure to get any celebrity’s seal of approval. The design elements have not been glossed over here, with graffiti art and a giant fish tank setting the tone in the main lounge, alongside a full bar, pool table, flat-panel televisions and a single-lane bowling alley. Yes, you read that right, a bowling alley.
Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling stayed in Bangkok when filming Only God Forgives. And of course Bradley Cooper had to stay somewhere when filming the Hangover. Need we say more? When it comes to accommodation, look no further than the Royal Suite in the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. Located on the 16th floor of the Royal Wing, this entourage-friendly room is one of the largest private suites in this bustling metropolis. It’s the ultimate group escape, with a private gym and massage room, flanked by a 120 square metre terrace and hidden Jacuzzi. Fancy a night out with your crew? Take a lead from the Wolfpack – the entourage who put this establishment on the world stage – and start at the Sky Bar Rooftop at Lebua to set the mood. It is without a doubt the most famous rooftop bar in Bangkok and offers one of the best views in the city. Just avoid any urges you may have to get a tribal face tattoo.
Pacific Harbour, Fiji
So not everyone can afford their own 4,600-acre island for a cool $6 million, like Mel Gibson. But if you and your posse want to avoid the hustle and bustle, the Beachfront Grand Residence at the Nanuku Auberge Resort is ideal. Set on the beachfront directly overlooking the turquoise waters of Beqa Lagoon, Nanuku is the quintessential South Pacific paradise. Accessible by chartered plane or helicopter, this luxury five-star, self-contained pad is a palatial bliss, complete with private butlers, gardens and swimming pools. Make sure you check out Yanuca Island where you may be lucky enough to swim with turtles.

Forget Tinseltown, Ibiza is the place to party with the stars – there’s a smorgasbord of celebrities that have partied here with their friends. Take a leaf from Leo Di Caprio’s book and hire the resort’s resident DJ for you and your besties at the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Resort. Located on the eighth floor of the Ushuaïa Tower, complete with in-built DJ decks, the ‘I’m On Top of the World’ Presidential Suite is the largest of its kind on the island. While your own private DJ is dropping your favourite beats, take in the 180-degree views of Playa d’en Boss or live it up in the extra-large Jacuzzi found on the suite’s private sun terrace – a feature larger than most hotel rooms. If in-room entertainment is your thing, 50-inch televisions are located throughout the suite.
If it’s good enough for Catherine Zeta Jones, Clint Eastwood, and Brad Pitt, just to name a few, then it’s good enough for anyone with celebrity-style taste. Hvar is perhaps the most famous of Croatia’s 1200 islands. However, if the mainland is more your thing, you can’t go past the Villa Orsula. Without a doubt this is the crown jewel of villa accommodation in Dubrovnik and perfect for anyone wishing to holiday in style. With breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea, Lokrum Island, Dubrovnik Old Town and beyond, Villa Orsula offers designer digs for people with premium taste. Suitable for couples, the royal Suite offers complete luxury and privacy. Guests of Villa Orsula have access to the adjacent Energy Clinic Wellness & Spa Centre where they can indulge in Turkish and Roman baths, a Finnish sauna or a VIP Jacuzzi whirlpool.
