Built on a man-made island in the Arabian Gulf, Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Jumeirah was designed to exude luxury in every way. With its distinctive shape inspired by a dhow sail, the hotel incorporates a stunning array of sumptuous materials, including over 21,000 square feet of 24K-gold leaf, thirty different types of marble (among them rare Statuario marble, which was used by Michelangelo in his masterpieces), custom-made carpets from South Africa and India, chandeliers from the U.K., and locally designed wooden doors. Guests have access to four swimming pools, nine restaurants and bars, a spa and fitness center, a private beach, manicured gardens, a helipad, and a water park.

The 8,396-square-foot suite comprises the master bedroom, complete with a rotating canopy bed; a huge dressing room; a dining room that can accommodate 12 a Majlis-style sitting room for entertaining guests; a private cinema; and a study equipped with the latest tech gadgets.

If that weren’t enough, there’s a pillow menu with 17 options, a special bath menu for use in the round marble tub, and Hermès bath products. Needless to say, guests enjoy the most attentive service imaginable, according to Architectural Digest.

In the most intimate part of the palace lies the Marrakesh luxury hotel and world icon: the Grand Riad. This prestigious abode thrives off of the famous guests it accommodates. With absolute relaxation in the hammam, delicious meals, and suave nights in one of the 4-star rooms, you will enter into one of the most refined and elegant atmospheres. An exceptional riad that inspires the craziest of dreams…

The private entrance via the olive tree patio allows you to discreetly access the Grand Riad as if it were your own home. Luxury lifestyle lovers will immediately be seized by the spectacular volumes of this vast 1800 m² Moroccan residence that opens out onto its landscaped garden and private swimming pool.

The Grand Riad is a window into the Kingdom’s finest. Zelliges combined with crystal suspensions. Silky fabrics with stucco lace. Carved cedar wood with modern artwork. Flowing lines, abundant materials, and fine fabrics: everything is in perfect harmony.

8. Hilltop Estate, Laucala Island, Fiji


Laucala’s 25 villas, all glamorous versions of traditional Fijian dwellings, each offer unparalleled exclusivity and privacy in dramatic, and very different, locations around the northern coast of the island.

Eleven Plantation villas are set amid a coconut grove beside a private beach; four Plateau villas perch atop Nawi Mountain at the heart of the island, ringed by rainforest and offering unbroken views of the sea; seven Seagrass villas line a powder-white beach; the Peninsula villa hugs a cliff and crescent-shaped beach; the Overwater villa is set above an emerald-green lagoon; and the Hilltop Estate sits at one of the island’s highest points, commanding views of the Fijian archipelago.

Regardless of their location, villas are designed with soft curves and free-flowing shapes, using natural materials in construction: thatch roofs made from the leaves of sago palms, local doga timber, Bala fern stems, and a traditional coconut husk weave known as magi. Impeccably furnished bedroom and living areas open to private gardens, each with an infinity-edge pool lit by Tikki torches come dusk. Villas come with a buggy, so guests are free to explore the resort at their leisure.

The guests of the Hilltop Residence live "up on top". High up in the opulent green hills of Laucala island, the "resort in a resort" crowns the dreams of luxury living à la Laucala.

For some people it is the captivating panorama view; for others, it is the unique atmosphere that makes guest's South Seas dreams of "undreamt of pleasures" come true, with 1.200 square metres of living space, 11.000 square metres of bedroom space, and other private quarters, an unusually designed main residence with its own panoramic pool landscape, two spacious guest residences and special services such as a private cook, a chauffeur and a private nanny.

The Muraka opened its doors in 2018 to become the Maldives and the world's, very first underwater hotel suite. It is part of the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort, owned by Hilton Worldwide. The two-story structure consists of an en-suite master bedroom, en-suite twin bedroom, sun deck and infinity pool on its upper floor, and a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom in the underwater section. This bedroom has a curved acrylic glass ceiling and walls that allow guests to observe the sea life outside while its accompanying en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet has floor-to-ceiling glass sections.

A stay at The Muraka is an exclusive experience and guests can arrive directly via private seaplane from the airport or transfer by speedboat from the main resort. A stay also includes a private, on-call speedboat, complimentary jet skis, a private butler and chef, on-call massage, spa treatments, and a personal trainer.

The suite's 540 metric tons (600 short tons; 530 long tons) lower level, 16.4 ft (5.0 m) below sea level, was first built in Singapore and then transferred to the Maldives by ship. In order to ensure that it doesn't move during bad weather, there are ten concrete piles holding it in place. The total cost of construction was $15 million.

Cannes, France attracts the rich and famous each May thanks to the Cannes Film Festival, and Hôtel Martinez, originally built in 1929, has been the obvious choice for the world’s most legendary stars since then. You can’t miss its grand, white facade right along the lively Boulevard de la Croisette, which is just steps from the beach. In 2018, Pierre-Yves Rochon completely revived the interior; it’s inspired by the rich colors of the French Riviera. Located on the top floor, the 17,975-sq-ft Penthouse Suite combines two private apartment-style suites. Each has two bedrooms, a lounge, dining room, sauna, and vast outdoor terrace space with panoramic views of the ocean. There’s an understated yet sophisticated decor, which features dark-mahogany-wood furniture, velvet loungers, and original lithographs from Picasso, Dufy, and Staël.

Inspired by the Art Deco style of the landmark and the colors of the Côte d'Azur, interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon breathes new life into this luxury hotel in Cannes.

The penthouse suite is highly sought-after during the Cannes film festival as you indulge in the prestigious 1,000 sq m suite on the highest floor, offering a 500 sq m private terrace overlooking the sea, one king bed, living & dining room.

What does the world’s most expensive hotel room look like? Located at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, the Empathy Suite, which is perched 34 floors above the Vegas Strip, is designed by world-renowned British contemporary artist Damien Hirst and overlooks the American city’s famous boulevard. The residential masterpiece is reserved exclusively for million-dollar casino rollers for a minimum of two nights at a princely sum of US$200,000.

From bespoke indoor furniture to wall decals sporting the iconic butterfly motif from Hirst’s debut exhibition in London in 1991, the hotel room is home to six of the artist’s signature installations, each showcasing his eclectic exploration of death as a central theme. One of which is Winner/Loser, a white tank with two suspended bull sharks. An installation from his most prominent series, it features animal carcasses in formaldehyde-filled tanks. Set seamlessly into the wall, the artwork is placed behind a brightly colored pool table in the game room, greeting guests as they enter the space, according to The Tatler.

Oliver’s Travels is one of the most exclusive and luxurious places known for the one-of-a-kind holiday experiences it provides for its customers. Among all the extraordinary holiday packages, offering their customers a wonderful experience of spending their time relaxing in the underwater hotel is the best. The idea is indeed out of the box to launch a submarine that has the most luxurious hotel in it that gives you a soothing experience of endless blue seas.

It is a fact that everyone adores the deep blue seas and endless blue skies, and there is more to enjoy when you are viewing them on a luxurious and deluxe yacht. Oliver’s Travels’ astonishing submarine, Lover’s Deep is all you could ask for to spend the perfect holiday with your loved one or some quality time alone under the deep blue sea. Although, the luxurious submarine is exclusively designed for the ultimate romantic experience, deep under the water, spending $292,000 (€258,000) to spend some time alone might also sound comforting. However, this submarine is crafted in such a manner that any person who could afford it will eventually be influenced to spend a romantic holiday with their loved one instead of enjoying it alone.
