The six best hotel beds for shut-eye
Your bed is like your ideal mate. She’s reliable, always there for you, doesn’t nag you, and never fails to invite you in with a smile. Warning: these hotel beds have a high risk of replacing your 60in flatscreen as your soulmate. This is what dreams are made of.
6. Hotel on Rivington -- New York, NY
Drift off on high-end Tempur-Pedic beds -- featured in every room -- with amazing Frette sheets and plush duvets. Tempur-Pedic mattresses are essentially designed just for you; they target key pressure points, soaking up your every move. Good luck making breakfast at 8:00a.
5. JW Marriott Hotel -- Hong Kong, China
The JW Marriott 9" foam bed is legendary. "High-density open-cell poured polyurethane foam" = baller sleep; it localizes motion, meaning the mattress is couple friendly. The best part? You can bring it home with you... if you’re willing to dish out $2,050.
4. The Westin Golf Resort & Spa -- Playa Conchal, Costa Rica
We're confident in telling you that, along with zip lining, jungle tours, and volcano hiking, snoozing on this bed will be one of the highlights from your Costa Rican getaway. The Westin Heavenly Bed features a 13" pillowtop mattress with a 8 3/4" box spring, two feather and down pillows, two hypo-allergenic pillows, a boudoir pillow and cover, a duvet cover with an overstuffed polyester insert, a down blanket, and almost too many layered Egyptian cotton sheets.
3. Uma Paro -- Paro, Bhutan
Upon arrival at this secluded oasis, you’ll be happy to slip into these sheets (it's a helluva journey to the Himalayan Kingdom). The king beds feature 300-count Egyptian cotton linens, goose down duvets, and silky, soft pillows. It'll feel like you're drifting to sleep on one of the surrounding mountain clouds.
2. The Kahala Hotel and Resort -- Honolulu, HI
Its Stearns & Foster beds are some of the most recognizable in the biz -- the memory foam pillowtop mattresses have individually-wrapped titanium coils, allowing minimal movement for a seamless sleep. The Frette 100% Egyptian cotton linens and extra-large plush down pillows are reason enough to make this bed your vacation destination.
1. W Retreat and Spa -- Gaathafushi, Maldives
Set on the W’s private island, this retreat's only accessible by private plane. The W’s signature Visco Memory Foam mattresses, designed by Simmons, relieve pressure points and have pocketed coil springs (1,056 coils, to be exact). Its pillowtop mattresses -- 13" thick -- have earned the nickname "The Do Not Disturb Mattress", and with good reason.
