6 of the world’s sexiest bedrooms

6 of the world’s sexiest bedrooms

Boutique hotel connoisseurs Mr & Mrs Smith are experts at sleeping around! They’ve compiled a list of the sexiest bedrooms on their books to set your pulses racing…

Over the past decade, Mr & Mrs Smith have checked into jaw-dropping boudoirs, ranging from rockstar-worthy pool suites and palatial four-poster château chambers to candlelit cave hideaways and cosy country love nests.

This is a far-from-exhaustive shortlist of those bedrooms in the UK, US and Europe that have really stirred our hearts and knocked our socks off, whether for their soul-stimulating views, sultry decor, romantic mood lighting, or all of the above.

Check out the full list of 52 (one for every week of the year…) at www.mrandmrssmith.com/bestbeds

SQ Hudson Studio _The Standard _NYC_USA_Mr & Mrs SmithHudson Studio at The Standard High Line, New York

Exhibitionists, step into the spotlight: the sexy Standard's floor-to-ceiling windows give tourists on the High Line a perfect view into these super slick rooms (if you're on the shy side you can, of course, just close the curtains). The corner-room Hudson Studio gives you double the exposure, as well as twice the jaw-dropping Big Apple views.

Rooms from £240; Hudson Studio from £507

SQ L'Orangerie _Chateau De Saint Paterne _Normandy _ France _Mr & Mrs SmithL'Orangerie at Château de Saint Paterne, Normandy, France

Whenever we need a picture of a bedroom that radiates sensuousness, we reach for this photo of the Orangerie at Château de Saint Paterne in Normandy. Set apart from the main château building, among the 25-acre grounds, this beguiling boudoir is fantasy incarnate thanks to the 19th-century theatrical backdrop that adorns the wall behind the bed.

Rooms from £120; L'Orangerie from £215

SQ Roccia Suite _Bellevue Syrene _Amalfi Coast _Italy _Mr & Mrs SmithRoccia Suite at Bellevue Syrene, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Perched on the clifftops of Sorrento, and built on the ruins of a Roman villa, Bellevue Syrene is a baroque, candy-coloured hotel with knockout views of Vesuvius and the sparkling Bay of Naples. The sexiest spot in the hotel is the Roccia Suite with its rocky walls, atmospheric arches, beautiful parquet and a billowy-draped four-poster beside a private hydrotherapy pool. Prepare to have you socks knocked off…

Rooms from £223; Roccia suite from £559

SQ Mezzanine Suite _El Palauet _Barcelona _Spain _Mr & Mrs Smith _LANDSCAPE FOR WEBMezzanine Suite at El Palauet, Barcelona, Spain

These apartments in the heart of Barcelona are a designer's dream housed in an elegant 1906 art nouveau building. Mezzanine Suites are graced with opulent frescoes soaring ceilings, stained-glass windows and designer furniture. The suite also includes a personal assistant who can arrange seemingly everything. Private chef? Personal shopper? In-room couples' massage? Done…

Mezzanine from £411

SQ Cardinal Suite _Blakes _London _UK_Mr & Mrs SmithThe Cardinal Suite at Blakes Hotel, London

The UK's original boutique hotel, Blakes is an Orient-inspired oasis in the heart of London. Designed with exotic exuberance by Anouska Hempel, it's a world tour-by-decor. The Cardinal Suite is the most shamelessly romantic with heavy, textured fabrics, floral artwork and an ornate, crimson-draped four-poster. It's an essay in decorative decadence.

Rooms from £263; Cardinal Suite from £514

SQ Sala Dei Mori _Ca Maria Adele _Venice _Italy _Mr & Mrs SmithSala dei Mori at Ca Maria Adele, Venice, Italy

Venice has been a byword for romance ever since its first gondolier picked up his oar. Arriving on Ca Maria Adele's private jetty is swoon-worthy enough, but Sala dei Mori (one of the hotel's five concept rooms) continues the sexy and opulent theme. Its sultry, Moorish-themed interior includes dark glass chandeliers, rich fabrics and black flocked wallpapers: unashamedly sensuous.

Rooms from £217; Sala dei Mori from £312
