2017 Noble Beach Prize Winner, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, The Sweetest Suite

Poison fans, this your heaven. The Sweetest Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel, Riviera Maya, is not any ordinary suite: it’s the Bret Michaels Rock Star Suite. Are you swooning?

When you step foot into this 9,204 square-foot 2017 Noble Beach Prize-Winning suite, the first thing you’ll see is a slammin’ life-sized glass photo of Michaels clad in sexy jeans and one of his signature cowboy hats commanding a cheering concert crowd. Once you’ve let all this awesome soak in, you can relax in the living room on a U-shaped couch with blingy pink pillows. But don’t miss the coffee table: it’s Michaels’ “smashed” rose guitar encased in a cushioned square. The tradition of smashing a guitar is similar to christening a ship with a bottle of champagne, but with a decidedly higher level of noise.

When you’re facing the photo of Michaels,  just to the right is a display of the famed rocker’s hat collection, an element that speaks to Michaels’ personal experiences – an approach that has been integrated throughout this opulent space. But it’s not surprising because Michaels personally worked hand in hand with the Hard Rock Design Studio and Tandem Design Team on the suite. Most celebrities have their “people” do these kinds of things. Pretty cool, huh?

Keep moving and you’ll come upon the master bedroom. It boasts a chic, modern vibe, a cushy bed and an in-room hydro tub, topped off with a killer view of the azure Caribbean. The spacious bath has Jack and Jill mirrors set against a colorful mural, plus a vanity area.

But that’s not all. The dining room has an elegant table that seats six. It’s perfect for late night snacking or a formal dinner. Heck, even if you were eating a cheeseburger at this table you’d feel all fancy.

Now for the media room, where you can kick back on leather loungers in front of a flat-screen TV, try your hand at Guitar hero and check out all the sports memorabilia and wicked guitars on the wall. Just outside this room is a Camaro-converted billiard table, and beyond that, Michaels’ yellow motorcycle, plus a raised dance floor for all your late-night shenanigans.

Other crazy fun things in this amazing suite include a photo booth, a DJ booth and bar and inspiration quotes all around. And just when you’re completely overwhelmed with the epic nature of the inside, step outside to the rockin’ terrace –  it’ll blow your beach hair back. You’ve got a stylish dining area with electric blue chairs, loungers with an amazing view of the turquoise sea, a hot tub and a seating area with happy lime green pillows.
