In our quest for the ultimate in exclusivity and relaxation, these suites define the phrase: ‘money is no object’
From great views and underwater suites to private chefs and unlimited in-suite spa treatment, discover the pentacle of luxury with some of the world’s most expensive accommodation.
They say some people will pay anything for a good night’s rest, but is US$10,000 per night, or even more, really worth it?
We know the rich and famous are not checking price tags, but are looking for the ultimate in exclusivity and relaxation instead. We check out six of the world’s most expensive suites that define the phrase: “money is no object”.
6. Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Our first suite rivals that of any on land. For US$11,000 a night you can see the world at your doorstep. Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor (debuting in 2020) offer luxury at every inch of the over 300-square-metre Regent Suite.
Like no other suite on the water, The Regent Suite has an in-room spa, with sauna and treatment room where you will be spoiled with unlimited complimentary treatments. A good night’s sleep is guaranteed with a custom, handcrafted US$200,000 Vividus bed from the renowned Hästens brand. Regent Suite guests disembark in style with a personal car and driver at every port. The perks on-board and on land make us want to give luxury cruising a go.
5. Eagles Nest, New Zealand
The Rahimoana Villa takes modern design and fuses it with luxury to enhance the natural scenes of New Zealand’s famed Bay of Islands.
With floor to ceiling glass windows you can take in sunsets, wildlife and sea views right from your doorstep, at around US$13,000 a night.
The property sits on a private land surrounded by bush and a kilometre long private beach. Flying in? No problem, you can touch down on your private helipad.
4. Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, Japan
Mandarin Oriental Tokyo’s President Suite, while luxurious, has a surprisingly non-traditional Japanese design look. At US$18,000 a night you can enjoy 250 square metres of space that includes a bedroom, living room, study, dining room and spa bathroom. Let’s not forget the stunning views of Mount Fuji.
3. Laucala Island, Fiji
It wouldn’t be a list without this exclusive private island resort.
This US$45,000 per night Hilltop Estate sits at one of the highest points of the island offering the best views of Fiji. Privacy is guaranteed, as it’s located on a secluded mountain road on the resort. The three villas that make up the estate are a glamorous take on a traditional Fijian dwelling and make relaxation a priority with a private pool and tranquil waterfall.
2. Conrad, Rangali Island, Maldives
Talk about exclusive, the Muraka is the only underwater suite in the world.
This residence makes swimming with sharks feel so 2000, and instead you have a chance to sleep among them as the lower level of the suite is 16.4 feet below sea level, offering unbelievable views of the sea life around you.
This stunner comes with a US$50,000 a night price tag. Perks with the two-story residence include a gym, a private infinity pool, an ocean-view bathtub and a private butler, chef and on-call trainer.
1. Hotel President Wilson, Geneva, Switzerland
Coming in at the most expensive suite in the world, The Royal Penthouse Suite costs US$80,000 per night. This suite is known for being the largest in Europe and takes up the entire eighth floor of the hotel with panoramic views of Lake Geneva. We would skip the living room and take in the lake’s views from the jacuzzi in the master bedroom.
Marble bathrooms complete with Hermes amenities, a grand piano, the world’s largest television and a rare book collection make this space something to talk about. With celebrity and presidential guests, safety is a priority and this suite makes no exception with a state-of-the-art security system, bulletproof windows, a panic button and plenty of security cameras.
