These ultra-luxurious hotels take five-star to a whole other level, commanding rates ranging between $61,000 to $150,000 per night.
Staying at a five-star hotel is already luxurious, but some accommodations truly stand out when it comes to providing out-of-this-world experiences. Just how extraordinary are these accommodations? Think opulent underwater rooms, chauffeured Rolls-Royce cars, private chefs, and yes, even personal butlers.
It all sounds too good to be true, but these grand hotels are very much real. Of course, everything comes at a price; staying in one of these establishments can cost you as high as six figures a night. But hey, if you’ve got the budget, it might just be the unforgettable experience you’re searching for.
Curious? Below are five of the world’s most expensive hotels:
Lover’s Deep Luxury Submarine, St. Lucia, Caribbean
What’s better than a luxury hotel? Probably a luxury hotel underwater. Lover’s Deep in St.Lucia is a hotel built within a submarine and manned by an experienced captain.
It’s not every day that one gets to live underwater, which is why each night at Lover’s Deep costs around $150,000. However, the exorbitant price tag does come with soundproof rooms, a private chef, and a butler.
Gourmet dishes are served in the lavish deep sea abode, including caviar, oysters, and chocolate fondant. Guests can even opt to have champagne for breakfast. The hotel is perfect for couples who want a romantic getaway that’s unlike any other.
Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas, United States
Palms Casino Resort’s Empathy Suite is a go-to staycation spot for travelers. A one night stay at the suite can cost you $100,000, making it the second most expensive accommodation in this list. Why the hefty price tag? Well, you’re not just paying for a suite—you’re paying for an entire, celebrity-worthy experience.
English artist Damien Hirst helped design the Empathy Suite, making it a livable work of art. Did we mention that the expansive space comes with an infinity-style jacuzzi, salt sauna, two massage rooms, 13-seat bar, and 24-hour butler service? There’s a reason why Palms Casino Resort is one of the most expensive hotels in America.
Hotel President Wilson, Genève, Switzerland
Nothing says luxury better than a panoramic view of Lake Geneva paired with a private elevator, 24/7 personal assistant, private chef, and butler service. Hotel President Wilson’s Royal Penthouse suite gives you all this and more at an impressive $80,000 per night.
That’s not the end of it, though. The suite covers the hotel’s entire eighth floor, and comes equipped with a gym, 103-inch plasma TV, private terrace (with telescope), twelve bedrooms, and a Steinway piano. One can see why Rihanna, Michael Jackson, and Bill Gates booked a stay at this accommodation.
The Mark Hotel, New York City, United States
Another expensive hotel in the U.S. is New York’s The Mark Hotel. Staying at The Mark penthouse can cost around $75,000 per night. The hefty price tag makes sense once one steps inside the five-bedroom space.
The 10,000 square foot suite—which encompasses the hotel’s 15th and 16th floors—comes with six bathrooms, four fireplaces, two powder rooms, and two wet bars. Its most striking feature, however, is the immense living room that also functions as a private grand ballroom. The 2,500 square foot terrace that offers a panoramic view of Central Park is also pretty nice.
Laucala Island Resort, Fiji
Last but certainly not least on this list is the verdant Hilltop Estate of Laucala Island Resort in Fiji. A single night can cost you around $61,000—but it’s well worth it if you’re looking for a sprawling, tropical getaway fit for royalty.
The resort’s Plateau Residences not only feature gorgeous views of the island’s lush greenery, but also top-tier furnishings and private stone-edged pools with sundecks. A nanny, professional chefs, and excellent housekeeping are the cherry on top of the whole deal.
Plus, guests have access to chauffeured Rolls-Royces and a premium spa. One can only expect the best from an accommodation owned by Australian billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz.
