Where to Sleep Like a King in 2019
The Pendry Natirar, Somerset County, New Jersey, US
New Jersey isn’t the first place you think of when you ponder the word “royal”, but for the late King of Morocco, Hassan II, this quiet country estate just an hour’s drive from New York City offered up a very royal luxury indeed – peace and quiet. His former home (purchased because of its proximity to Princeton, where his sons were students) is due to reopen in early 2020 as a luxury retreat, offering a slice of unexpected Tudor-style opulence on the East Coast. With 66 bedrooms, a handful of exclusive residences, as well as a private sports club and extensive spa, it’s the ideal place to while away a weekend off from the bustle of New York.
Take tea… in the historic mansion’s grand room, now a lavish drawing room. Originally built as an estate home for wealthy heiress Ms Kate Macy Ladd and her husband, the property has handsome proportions that deserve to be lounged in.
Pass the time… on horseback and tour the mansion’s 400 acres of rolling hills. A sustainable estate farm supplies the Ninety Acres Restaurant & Cooking School.
