11 most expensive luxury hotels around the world



#4 Cap Estel, France
On a secluded peninsula snaking out into the Med, Cap Estel’s gated mansion is a shot of Riviera glam amid the azure. Surrounded by palms and terraced gardens, with an elegant restaurant and Monaco and Nice close by, this exclusive retreat is A-list alluring. Not one but two pools to choose from: a fabulous saltwater infinity pool overlooking the sea, or the spa’s indoor pool. La Table du Cap Estel’s neutral decor, low leather chairs, and black-and-white tiled floor provide a sophisticated backdrop to the culinary offerings, which include foie gras with mashed asparagus and rhubarb sorbet.
Price – USD 1,679 per night

#3 Explora Rapa Nui, Chile
With the Atacama Resort mentioned earlier, one can easily deduce that far flung concepts are their signature style. And their Rapa Nui concept follows protocol. First there’s the architecture: the building’s rounded forms are almost futuristic, but it’s brought down to earth by humble materials like raw concrete and unfinished wood. Open floor plans and wide windows maximize the sight-lines from anywhere in the room — and the view is, as always, a large part of the Explora’s appeal. Futuristic, yet traditional – none of the 30 rooms have television or wifi – an attempt to disconnect from an everyday routine.
Price – USD 1,679 per night
Hotel-Cala-di-Volpe-Sardinia-Italy-1
#2 Hotel Cala di Volpe, Sardinia, Italy
If you’re going to stay in the Costa Smeralda, money is clearly no object, so you might as well stay in the best. Designed by Jacques Couelle in the early 60s and renovated in the last ten years by his son Sauvin, this chic retreat (part of the Starwood Hotels’ Luxury Collection) looks like a cross between a desert monastery and Dr No’s lair, but the service and facilities are unambiguously five-star.
Price – USD 1,789 per night

#1 Amangiri, Canyon Point, Utah
Occupying the top most position in the list is the Amangiri in spectacular Utah. At a jaw-dropping $1,889 a night, you may be surprised to know getting a room isn’t as easy as one may think! Their adventure and rejuvenation package is one that attracts even Brangelina! Every guest, yes even Brad and Angie have to check in miles before the actual resort. Some serious security protocol I guess!
Price – USD 1,889 per night
