The Master Suites are carefully designed to take you to another continent for a night. With art from around the world and handmade furniture, each room is truly unique. In the Antartica Suite you are surrounded by striking black and white hues, and in the African Master Suite there is a ceiling of straw made from locally grown wheat.
