The World’s Most Expensive Hotels


For many, expectations for a hotel room do not get much above it being clean and comfortable with a nice bed. Anything on top of this is a bonus. But for some people a hotel is worth splashing out thousands of pounds per night on to experience true luxury and the best service known to man (and woman!). So whilst most will not be able to afford a stay at these hotels, it is always worth taking a peak behind the shower curtain (do posh hotels have shower curtains? Probably not…). Come with us as we explore some of the world’s most expensive hotels…

Burj Al Arab, Dubai

If you are feeling a bit flush, why not enjoy a one night stay at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, it only costs $24,000 per night! But to be fair the hotel is the world’s only 7* hotel so the service and room are perhaps the most impressive you’ll ever enjoy. The room measures over 780 square metres, which in layman’s terms means it is absolutely huge!

It is decorated with 22 carat gold pillars, has its own cinema and stairway, private dining area - complete with a butler - and an Arabic-style lounge. If that isn’t enough, there is also a private library and two suites, one designed for women and one for men. Once you are feeling sleepy and have freshened up in one of the three bathrooms, take our pick from a ‘pillow menu’ and then hop onto the rotating bed for some shut eye. Not bad, eh?! 

Hotel President Wilson, Geneva

At $80,000 per night, the President Suite at the Hotel President Wilson located in Geneva, Switzerland is perhaps more aimed at the super rich than those of us looking for a bargain, but you do get quite a bit for your money!

For instance, the room takes up the whole of the 8th floor and overlooks the fabulous Lake Geneva. If you are a man of some standing then you can relax as the windows are bulletproof, a hint towards some of the sort of people who frequent this suite, with many heads of state and royalty using the room when visiting the nearby United Nations building. Film lovers rejoice, as the room comes equipped with a 103-inch Bang & Olufsen plasma television. You then have 12 bedrooms to choose from and a 26 person dining table. 

Raj Palace Hotel, Jaipur, India

A former Maharaja’s palace dating back to the 18th century, The Raj Palace Hotel still offers a touch of class not found in too many other hotels. With restaurants, spas, a cinema and gardens to relax it, it is a real favourite with high-profile guests. Take afternoon tea in the Royal Lounge and then visit the hotel’s onsite museum. 

It is quite righty viewed as the world’s leading heritage hotel and oozes history and class. The Presidential Suite is a four storey apartment with private entrances, private elevator and features 4 bedrooms and can cost around $12,000 a night. That’s a bit too steep for us though! 

Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas 

Located around a mile from the Las Vegas strip, this hotel has invested hundreds of millions of pounds in recent years to bring it up to scratch to compete with the world’s best, and part of this is the development of Damien Hirst’s Empathy Suite. At $100,000 per night is it the world’s most expensive hotel room and is what you would expect – simply incredible! The room itself is considered a masterpiece and features two master bedrooms, outdoor pool overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, lounges that can fit over 50 people, massage rooms and a whole lot more. It an incredible room and totally over the top – just what you would want for a Las Vegas hotel! 

So there you have it, a quick run through some of the world’s most expensive hotels. Whilst for many of us they are out of our financial reach, it doesn’t hurt to dream, right? Who knows, one day we may hit the jackpot and find ourselves in one of the world’s most expensive hotels enjoying private cinemas, bulletproof windows and dining rooms big enough to host all our friends and family.
