When it comes to accommodation there are plenty of options. From shoestring backpackers’ rooms to reasonably priced delights, everyone has something they can afford. But then there are the top tier luxuries that all but defy belief. We would never suggest you aim for any of the following venues, but it is also fascinating to know that they are available.
These are the most expensive hotels in the world.
The Royal Mansour Marrakech
Located in Morocco, The Royal Mansour Marrakech is almost too much to comprehend. Each of the 53 available riads, which is a Moroccan house, is so luxuriously elegant that it is enough to leave the average tourist gapping. From handmade tiles to antique furnishings, there is almost nothing that doesn’t appear to be a work of art.
If you’d like to stay at the Grand Riad, the most expensive possible option, you should be prepared to part with $30,000 for a single night.
There is something to be said for feeling like you tower over New York city, and that is exactly what the designers of the Four Seasons were aiming for. There are, of course, more affordable rooms available, but those who are looking to live like royalty will want to check out the Ty Warner Penthouse. The interior is referred to as an architectural masterpiece, and looking at a few photos will reveal why. A private swimming pool 52 stories above Central Park and the Museum of Modern art would make anyone feel a little enchanted.
Should you feel like splashing out $40,000 a night, don’t forget to use the free WiFi to check out a few horse racing tips. Alternatively, just play now on your smartphone and save the $40,000.
Cheval Blanc Randheli Resort
We’re getting to the truly incredible now, with the Cheval Blanc Randheli Resort being nothing short of awe inspiring. Located in the Maldives, those with $50,000 to spare can enjoy their own private island villa. Guests are transported to and from their island on a seaplane, and will be tended to by team of fulltime servants.
If you were wondering, there are cheaper options. But by cheaper we mean still far beyond the price range of anyone who isn’t an oil baron.
The Mark Hotel
Back to New York and we have The Mark Hotel. You won’t be surprised to know that it is nearby The Four Seasons, likewise offering views of Central Park. Only in the case of The Mark Hotel, which is famed for its combination of modern comforts with understated luxury, the prices are significantly higher.
$75,000 a night will get you The Mark Penthouse Suite.
Palms Casino Resort
If you guessed the most expensive hotel in the world would be in Las Vegas, you guessed right. The Empathy Suite Sky Villa is nothing short of outrageous, designed by legendary British artist Damien Hirst.
Interestingly enough, in comparison to other suites on this list, The Empathy may even strike some as a touch gaudy. But at $100,000 a night, who is really questioning the décor?
