Nice piece here from Forbes.com looking at the most expensive hotels in 2006.
Not sure there are too many surprises but some of Lussorians favourtes are the:
Burj al Arab, Dubai – prices start at £1000 ($1,770) per night for a basic suite to £7,500 ($10,890) per night for the Royal Suite, which comes with an indoor Jacuzzi and revolving bed. “According to its online booking engine, Burj Al Arab is booked through February 2007. And at $1,770 a night, it’s going to cost you, even then. But this palatial hotel is one experience you’ll be glad to shell out for. The interior lobby is plated with gold leaf, and the building is tall enough to fit the entire Eiffel Tower inside.”
Sandy Lane, Barbados – prices start at £750 ($1,200) per night. “The island of Barbados is full of plush resorts and top-tier restaurants, but Sandy Lane is the undisputed best. Rooms average 900 square feet and have private terraces as well as plasma-screen TVs. Not that we recommend you spend too much time in your room; the resort also has an 18-hole golf course, a dramatic, Romanesque-style spa and lots of white-sand beachfront.”
Singita Private Game Reserve – prices start at £1,500 ($2,010) per night. “This Relais & Chateaux property is located in the center of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in South Africa. The Ebony Lodge, a luxurious collection of open-air suites on the banks of the Sand River, is full of brightly colored furniture and canopied beds. Groves of trees provide shelter from the heat. Rates include all meals.”
Any of these would make a truly luxurious holiday destination.
