If you’re looking for your very own butler, then staying at one particular suite at The Hotel Connaught will suit your needs. Known simply as “The Apartment” this luxurious suite is something even the mega-wealthy can gawk at.
Outside of the private butler, you’ll find a ritzy menu created by Michelin-starred chef Helene Darroze. Your butler can serve you outside on your wrap-around balcony which overlooks the Mayfair village, a quite posh and luxurious district.
To top it all off, the 5-star hotel offers a “pampering and wellness” luxury spa, hand-crafted martini’s and a highly dedicated staff to serve your every need.
Price: $75,000 per night
Situated across the proverbial pond is the luxury suite known as “The Grand Penthouse” and grand it is indeed. One issue with New York is that space is hard to come by - unless you have money that is. With a cool 75 G’s a night you’ll have full access to the top two floors of The Mark. How much space is that exactly? 12,000 square feet.
This suite has a staggering five bedrooms and SIX bathrooms. A library, and as if one bar wasn’t enough, you have a delightful two to attempt to drink your wealth away. If you’d like to make it a whole ordeal, you can convert the living room to a ball room and invite friends over for a masquerade.
If you’re not afraid of heights, enjoy the view of Central Park down below on your 2,500 square foot terrace.

If you’re in the mood for something both luxurious and tropical, look no further than this hilltop estate. The Laucala Island was purchased by one of the co-founders of the energy drink company Red Bull and is designed as an island getaway for the mega-wealthy.
The co-founder, Dietrich Mateschitz, stays in the Delana Hilltop Estate himself, so bookings are dependent of when he’s not occupying the space himself. The resort is expansive with 120,000 square feet of space. This space comes complete with guest residences, a private cook, nanny, and chauffeur, as well as plenty of outdoor activities.
Known as “The Presidential Suite” this Shanghai suite is more like a full apartment. Anyone who stays here has two bedrooms, complete with wine cellar, and views 25-stories above the Shanghai streets.

If you have a business meeting in the city, a stay here will provide a high-level of status to help you win over top clients.

The United Arab Emirates is synonymous with luxury and expensive living. Any snapshot of the city offers up ritzy sports cars casually strolling the streets and the city even has an initiative to air-condition their streets. I think it’s fair to say that the city is loaded. So what do you get in a suite they call luxurious?
“The Royal Suite” is designed with oceanic elements and takes up two floors at St. Regis. The stay comes with a private study, cinema, sauna, and spa room among other amenities. You’ll be able to look out at the ocean while swimming in the poolside terrace.
If you’re like me, your jaw probably hurts from gawking at these hotels. From private island bungalows to posh apartments in London, the world of the mega-wealth only continues to become more luxurious.
