There is a lot that makes a hotel charge an astounding $1000 per night for a room. For one, these hotels cash in on their premium locations – a luxury lodge in the middle of the desert or of course the crowd – a celebrity clientele, gadgets, plush upholstery and of course service that would take you on cloud number 9 .
The globe is full of hotels that charge such princely sums for a mere night.
The hotel with the most staggering price tag is a boutique hotel set in the beautiful landscape of Utah. At $1,889 per night, the Amangiri in Canyon Point – Utah has been revealed as the number one spot as the most expensive luxury hotel around the world.
Not so surprisingly, Sardinia’s Hotel Cala di Volpe Italy occupied the number two place with a per night tariff of $1,789. Over the years, Sardinia has always found a place in the world’s most expensive list. Sardinia has established itself quite well having three properties in this list alone.
Here’s presenting 11 of the most expensive luxury hotels in the world.
#11 Burj Al Arab, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Truth is, there is no such thing as a seven star property – five is as high as you go. Honestly, the seven star property is nothing short of an urban myth but then again it dominates the stunning skyline of Dubai. A fleet of Rolls Royce await your arrival in the foyer and the only way to get a glimpse of the uber-luxurious hotel unless you’ve booked a suite is to reserve a table at one of the finest eateries. Occupying two floors each, the hotel only entails suites! Well this clearly justifies the $1,345 a night room tariff.
Price – USD 1,345 per night
#10 La Reserve, Ramatuelle, France
Perched upon a hill and offering unprecedented views of the Mediterranean Sea, La Reserve is minutes away from the hustle bustle of the legendary Saint Tropez. A 1,000 square meter spa seamlessly integrates into the hotel’s private domain while the gorgeous pine covered expanse is home to 12 private home villas. The USP of this property is this spa with its 10 treatment cabins, an indoor pool and solarium!
Price – USD 1,369 per night
#9 Villa del Parco, Forte Village Resort, Sardinia, Italy
With an impressive space in the Leading Hotels of the World portfolio, the Villa del Parco is nestled in the natural oasis of Sardinia’s Forte Village Resort. The hotel offers an eclectic blend of accommodation between hotel-style, bungalow-style, intimate waterfront suites and three contemporary villas. The award-winning spa, Thalasso del Forte, features six different Thalassotherapy pools and a myriad of marine-based therapies. So soothing and regenerative are the water treatments that astronauts have come here after missions in space. The new Michelin star award restaurant Belvedere is quite a favourite with hotel guests.
Price – USD 1,439 per night
#8 Aman Canal Grande, Venice, Italy
If your event’s portfolio entails the much hushed about wedding of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, you cannot one for charging over $1,400 a night. The luxury hotel is one of the few in Venice which feels more like a private palazzo than just another hotel. Another essential architectural feature of a Venetian palazzo, this is the main reception hall and party space – the ceilings are double height and lit by a glittering Murano chandelier and the walls are lined with silk wall hangings. A hidden jetty entrance and private garden shield guests from prying paparazzi lenses; but, even if you have no credits to your name, the top-drawer staff will make you feel like a megastar.
Price – USD 1,489 per night
#7 Explore Atacama, Chile
There are few places on earth that feel so far removed from civilization and the tech-boom of the 21st Century as the Atacama desert in Northern Chile. Explora have reinvented the Art of Travel by placing luxury hotels smack bang in the middle of nowhere and offering an experience unlike any other. The rooms are kept basic but the linens are lush, bathroom amenities are indulgent, and gourmet chocolates find their way to your bed every night at turn down service. The architecture of the property as a whole is kept traditional and relative to the environment, which all the while ensures you enjoy an authentic experience, nothing more and nothing less.
Price – USD 1,533 per night
#6 Hotel Pitrizza, Sardinia, Italy
Yet another jewel on the island of Sardinia; the Hotel Pitrizza resembles a postcard image. Honestly it wouldn’t be fair to call Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda a lost jewel, but the statement’s not entirely incorrect. The forested hills, emerald blue waters, and hidden pockets of golden sand make the area around Hotel Pitrizza as beautiful and romantic a spot as any you’ll find around the Mediterranean. Yet, somehow, the place feels a bit like your own little secret. You’ll sleep up on a pillowy-soft king-size bed, soak up ocean views on your private patio, and dine on rich Carpaccio at Ristorante Pitrizza. Then, slip down to the private beach for a midnight swim, or bask in the noon sun beside the carved-rock swimming pool.
Price – USD 1,543 per night
#5 Montage Kapulua Bay, Maui
The Montage Kapulua Bay is no ordinary sea-side resort. Overlooking the crystal blue waters off Hawaii, the luxury hotel is located on the exclusive Kapulua beach. Surrounded by a 24,000-acre tropical and cultural paradise, each well-appointed room offers generous private lanais to enjoy the vibrant ocean views. The hotel offers an intimate private dining nestled above the water in a wooden lodge.
