What could be better than a vacation fit for a rock star? A vacation fit for a rock star in a suite designed by a rock star.
Last month, Hard Rock All Inclusive Collection unveiled its first-ever branded suite in the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, located in Puerto Aventuras, about one hour south of Cancun. The Bret Michaels Rock Star Suite spans over 9000 square feet, and was inspired by rocker Bret Michaels of '80s glam metal band Poison, VH1’s Rock of Love and The Celebrity Apprentice.

If anyone knows how to create the perfect Rock Star suite, it's Bret, who worked directly with the Hard Rock Design Studio and Tandem Design Team to help design the suite, which is filled with his own rock memorabilia.
The Rock Star Suite was revealed by Bret himself, and inaugurated with the traditional Hard Rock Guitar Smash. The autographed, smashed guitar will live in the suite, which is located in the adult-only Heaven section of the resort.

Afterwards, Michaels played an acoustic set in the Heaven Lounge. The crowd sang along to some of Michaels’ classic tunes including "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Nothing But a Good Time," "Talk Dirty to Me" and crossover hit "All I Ever Needed."

The Bret Michaels Rock Star Suite is by far the most opulent suite in the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. At the entrance, guests are welcomed by a full-size glass cutout of Michaels, who's commanding a cheering concert crowd, and a large display case showcasing the rock star’s "Hollywood Taxi" motorcycle and "Every Rose" guitar.
The suite also holds two king bedrooms, a full terrace, kitchen and dining area, hot tub, firepit, fitness center, photo booth, private screening room, DJ booth and bar, raised dance floor, inspirational quotes, Camaro-converted billiard table, cowboy hat display and bandana-influenced ceiling décor.
The suite’s design is contemporary and incorporates vibrant shades of gold, blue and purple.
