Hello and welcome back to another DailyTop10s Top 10 Video. Today we’re taking a look at how the other half live, with the most expensive hotel rooms and guest rooms in the world.
10. Regis Villa. Mauritius
Located in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a tropical paradise, which usually means it is shoulder-to-shoulder with sweaty tourists asking for directions to the nearest pub. But if you find yourself surrounded by sunburnt Brits, simply book into the Regis Villa, which is the largest villa on the island, and a snip at just $30,000 a night.
9. Royal Suite — St. Regis Saadiyat. UAE
With butler service, a private theatre, a games room and a private pool, you’ll get the true millionaire experience at the Royal Suite. Which is handy, because at $35,000 a night, a few weeks in this luxury pad will set you back a 7-figure sum. The Regis is actually the largest hotel room in the UAE, and in a country where man-made islands and mile-high buildings are a common as roller rinks and Pizza Huts, that’s saying something.
8. The Royal Villa — Grand Resort Lagonissi. Athens.
The Greek capital has seen better days, and with Greece’s economy in ruins, the 5-star experience in Athens will cost you a fraction of what it would cost in other major European cities. Unless you book into the Royal Villa, that is, where you can begin to rebuild the Greek economy one $35,000 night at a time.
This plush hotel room has a heated pool and a private deck that overlooks the beach.
7. Penthouse Suite — Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez. Cannes
At the Grand Hyatt Hotel Martinez Penthouse Suite you can hop into your terraced Jacuzzi and watch over the Bay of Cannes, as all the common people flock around in their quaint little yachts. At just under $40,000 a night, this suite is a bargain, assuming you have a few million in the bank.
And, according to the Grand Hyatt’s website, it also comes with wireless internet access and a free bathrobe! Well, we don’t know about you, but that seals the deal for us.
6. Hilltop Estate Owner’s Accommodation — Laucala Island Resort. Fiji
This villa is so exclusive that you have to apply and then hope they let you give them $40,000 a night for the privilege of sleeping there. This is one of 25 villas on an island owned by the founder of Red Bull, because apparently, as well as wings, Red Bull also gives you a shit load of money.
Along with panoramic views of the island, you can also get a free horse ride on the beach.
5. Hugh Hefner Sky Villa — Palms Resort. Las Vegas.
If you’re looking to blow a fortune in the City of Sin, then book into the Palms Resort and the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, which is as impressive as it sounds. This suite is a high roller’s dream, with around-the-clock butler service, a private sauna and breathtaking views of the Las Vegas strip.
The Hugh Hefner Sky Villa even has a private glass elevator, but for $40,000 a night, Willa Wonka better be waiting for us at the top.
4. Ty Warner Penthouse — Four Seasons. New York.
Although it’s one of the most expensive ways to get high in New York, at the Ty Warner Penthouse suite, located in the Four Seasons hotel, you won’t wake up in the gutter with a headache, a bad taste in your mouth and a severe sense of self-loathing.
It is the highest hotel room in the city and it even comes with its own art concierge, because if you can afford to blow $45,000 a night on a hotel room, this is the sort of random shit you probably think is essential.
3. The Burj Al Arab — Dubai
Obscene luxury is synonymous with Dubai, and with the UAE on the whole, and when it comes to high-class accommodation, it doesn’t get more obscenely luxurious than the Burj Al Arab. You will need at least $2,000 if you want to spend a night anywhere in this hotel, and while it doesn’t have the single most expensive hotel room, it is possible the most expensive hotel in the world overall. But with helicopter transfers and free rides in luxury cars, it might just be worth it.
2. The Shahi Mahal Suite — Raj Palace Hotel. Jaipur, India
For $45,000 a night, also known as more money than many Indian neighbourhoods will make in a lifetime, you can book yourself into the Shahi Mahal Suite and try to pretend that you can’t hear the cries of the starving children outside your window. This suite has 6 rooms, a theatre, a library and its own private kitchen staff on hand to cook you what you want, when you want. Without any exceptions. Probably.
1. The Royal Penthouse Suite — Hotel President Wilson. Geneva, Switzerland
Offering a panoramic view of Lake Geneva, The Royal Penthouse Suite will set you back around $70,000 a night and has played host to some of the richest people in the world, including Bill Gates. According to the hotel website, this suite sleeps 6 people, even though it has 12 bedrooms and bathrooms. And with a private gym, a pool table and its own team of security, you’ll want to stay forever. Assuming you don’t go bankrupt within a few hours that is.
Thanks for watching!
