Will The 13, Macau dethrone the Burj Al Arab as the most luxurious hotel in the world?


Stephen Hung’s masterpiece of a luxury hotel is slated to open later this summer. Enigmatically titled The 13 (after Mr. Hung’s lucky number), this Macau property will arguably be one of the most extravagant and luxurious hotels in the world with a cost of over US$7 million per room. Now, Louis XIII Holdings Limited has revealed the very first images of what the hotel will be like and even we were floored by the decadence of it all.

The all-villa hotel (villa is Macau-speak for large suite) will feature 200 rooms most of which will be in the Villa du Comte style with a gross floor area of approximately 2,000 square feet while 31 are to have a palatial 30,000 square feet for the Villa de Stephen.

But hedonism is not reserved for the interior of the hotel, guests will also have access to transportation via Rolls Royce. In fact, The 13 will boast the largest fleet of bespoke Rolls Royce cars in the world.
