I have a headache from researching hotels all day long – and some won’t even publish their prices on their site (thank you Forbes, et al), for fear of tyre kickers like me I guess.
But now I can reveal the 10 most expensive hotel suites in the world… And see which one would set you back $75,000 per night!
Here we go…
This 10-room suite spans the two towers of the resort with terraces front and back for uninterrupted views. Your butler and chef has their own entrance and you will sleep in hand-painted linens. You also get access to the Atlantis waterpark if you want to venture from your own paradise and walk among the people.
In Tokyo’s Roppongi District, you can enjoy bathing in the highest bathtub in the city. It’s the view you pay for on the 53rd floor of the tallest skyscraper in Tokyo all the way to Mount Fuji and the Tokyo Tower.
The largest suite in Rome sprawls over two floors with a 12m high frescoed dome in the living room and a rooftop terrace. A private wine cellar is all yours, as is the fitness room and Jacuzzi in a room designed to look like Roman baths.
This exclusive beach front, modern villa faces sunset views over the ocean. You’ll get an indoor heated pool and another one outdoors, fully equipped gym and butler’s quarters. The two bedrooms both have fireplaces and steam baths and there’s a massage area for when you really need to relax.
While you can get a room for $60 downstairs at the Palms, Hugh Hefner’s two-story suite comes with a rotating bed under a mirrored ceiling and a Jacuzzi that juts out over the hotel for unhindered Strip views. You get the usual butler service, spa treatments, gym and poker room, plus an outdoor terrace, media room and space to entertain your closest 250 friends.
When in town for your movie premiere be quick to grab this enormous suite with sweeping Mediterranean views to hob nob with your fellow rich and famous types. Two bedrooms with bathrooms, your own hamam and your own huge terrace overlooking the Bay of Cannes.
For a mere $10,000 you can stay in an underwater suite, but if the extra cash is burning a hole in your pocket, take the Royal Bridge Suite with views of both Dubai from one balcony on the Arabian Sea from the other. I had a squiz through here last year and took a few pics. You can see them on the link above.
A $50 million refurbishment of the 52nd floor of the Four Seasons Hotel in New York has spruced things up a bit. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer a 360 degree view of the city. Get someone in to play the grand piano or a therapist to pamper you in your own spa.
Designed like an entrance to a maharaja, this is actually a royal palace. Your four-story apartment has gold-leaf walls, a library, private terrace, a rooftop pool and gold and silver furniture.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE……
It might look unassuming from the road, but on the top floor is the most expensive suite in all the world. Its 12 rooms include a billiards room, piano room (Steinway grand, of course) and a fitness centre. Step through the bullet-proof doors onto the terrace which overlooks the lake and wonder what else you could have bought for this price.
