Banyan Tree (Spa): This is one of the most luxurious hotels, so we dedicated our largest room with the finest views to create a contemporary South East Asian paradise.

The bathroom is very opulent with wall-to-wall marble; this is definitely the sexiest room we have to offer.
Bird Island (Hot Tub): This is one of the most fascinating places on earth, isolated in the middle of the Indian Ocean between Mauritius and Arabia. It is said to be the authentic Garden of Eden. Put it to the test in your own private tropical hot tub garden.
Bora Bora (Hot Tub): The waters in this south pacific paradise are the purest azure blue you will ever see. Our room is bathed in stunning magenta and white, and right outside your bed room has its own secret and very private hot tub garden.
Cipriani (Hot Tub): This is Michael Winner's number one favourite hotel in the World right on the Grand Canal in Venice. One of the most breath-taking bedrooms at The Crab at Chieveley, Cipriani really does bring a taste of Venice to the Berkshire countryside. Furnished in luxurious Venetian fabrics, and decorated in the most sumptuous and elegant colours, Cipriani will make any stay memorable.
Chiva Som (Hot Tub): This exotic room is named after Thailand’s famous wellness centre for well-being and happiness. It is without doubt the best spa on earth, voted number one by most travellers every year. We have created a haven with a hot tub garden for your pleasure.
Indian Plantation: The ambience and aromas of a tea plantation house welcomes you to this room. Warmth and amazing light bathe the entire room; Indian silks adorn every window with full-length shutters to keep you cosy. Even mosquito nets cover the antique teak four-poster bed.
