While every hotel can provide short-term paid lodging, the amount of offered comfort differs, which sets them apart. Hotels in prime locations can feel like a slice of heaven because of their “out of this world” amenities.
If you have an unlimited budget and want to travel in style, check out some of the most expensive hotels in the world. Discover the unique services and amenities these hotels offer below.
Lover’s Deep Luxury Submarine, St. Lucia – $175,000/Night
For the most expensive hotel in the world, you’ll have to travel to St. Lucia, a Caribbean island nation located in the eastern Caribbean Sea and on the Atlantic Ocean’s boundary. If you’re looking for a romantic night under the sea, there’s no better place than a private submarine for you and your loved one.
Open-plan interiors allow you views of the ocean from nearly every angle. You may see everything from shipwrecks and coral to vast expanses of unpolluted water from your minibar, two-person bathroom, or welcoming double bed.
Private speedboat transfers are included as part of the hotel package. Additional services, such as helicopter transfers with beach landings, free rose petal scattering services, or champagne breakfasts in bed, can be added as desired.
Palms Casino Resort Empathy Suite, Las Vegas, Nevada – $100,000/Night

This New York City suite costs $75,000 a night and is in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

It offers panoramic vistas of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.

A huge library lounge, a full-sized kitchen, and a living area with 26-foot ceilings and a grand piano are also included in the bi-level unit’s amenities. The 2,500-square-foot outdoor terrace, a unique amenity in New York City, is the pièce de résistance.
Laucala Island Resort Hilltop Estate, Fiji – $61,142/Night
A David McLay Kidd-designed golf course, tennis facilities, a heavenly spa, and an abundance of activities await you on this private island in Fiji’s Koro Sea. Laucala Island is the vacation home of Red Bull’s owner, Dietrich Mateschitz, a beautiful, private island with a lot of greenery.
There are miles of private woodland, coconut groves, tumbling waterfalls, and pools (one with a glass edge). This Hilltop Estate state sits atop the beautiful hills, allowing guests to take in the breathtaking views of the jungle and azure waters.
Sago palms, doga timbers, and magi trees construct all structures. If you’ve ever dreamed of staying in your private beach house with two spacious guesthouses, an infinity pool, and a private airport to boot, you’ve come to the right place.
Four Seasons Hotel, Las Vegas, USA – $60,000/Night
You’d never guess the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas was housed beneath the gleaming gold towers of Mandalay Bay. A drive up to the Four Seasons’ porte cochere, via fountains and beautiful gardens, contrasts Mandalay’s taxis dropping off-drunk girls at bachelorette parties down below.
At the Four Seasons, elderly, well-heeled guests who want to avoid the normal Vegas atmosphere flock to this hotel. With its private elevator, visitors can easily access the casino, theaters, and over-the-top restaurants in the heart of Vegas, but it’s also just a short walk away from the bustling city.
Like the rest of the hotel, the Four Seasons lobby exudes calmness. Wood paneled walls and multi-toned marble greet visitors. In the middle of the space, an abstract representation of the company’s arboreal emblem serves as a unifying anchor. There are also endless mini-bar and floor-to-floor ceilings.

With its Teppan plancha grill and a live culinary show every night, the Martinez Bar honors the Hotel Martinez’s rich history while offering an array of cocktails, gin, and tonics.
The Muraka Suite, The Conrad, Maldives – $50,000/Night
