All-Out Opulence: The World’s Most Luxurious Hotels

by | Oct 12, 2017 | Featured, Travel Guides |

There’s luxury hotels and then there’s all-out, outrageously opulent luxury hotels. Today I am diving into the playground of the rich and famous and am offering a glimpse into the globe’s most deluxe resorts. You have to be serious about luxury travel to stay at one of these locations: not only is the interior design second to none, but you’ll also be blown away by the level of the personal service that comes from having your own butlers and chauffeurs. Let’s take a look at my favourites!

Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Hotel

The iconic shape of Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Hotel has made it a firm fixture of the city’s skyline. Here you can find beautiful two-story suites, whose peerless views of Dubai are second only to the top-of-the-range amenities that guests enjoy. You might well find yourself mixing and mingling with royalty at one of the hotel’s range of wining and dining options, or at one of the five pools in the complex. If you ever want to venture into the outside world, you can do so in one of the chauffer-driven Rolls Royces that are owned by the hotel – or by jumping in a helicopter from its very own helipad.

Las Vegas Palms in Nevada

There is arguably no better place to indulge in a little opulence than in America’s Sin City. Invite new pals back to the Two Story Sky Villa, a rooftop suite that can accommodate up to 250 people. With a rooftop Jacuzzi, rotating bed, massage room, sauna, private balcony and a full bar, just remember – what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!

Turkey’s Mardan Palace Hotel

This $1.65-billion hotel is set around a ginormous swimming pool and is one of the most luxurious hotels in Europe. This venue really is outrageously luxurious: it has beautiful interiors crafted from Italian marble, shimmering crystal chandeliers, almost twenty bars, and an aquarium. And, as if the 1000-person capacity of the pristine pool weren’t impressive enough, thousands of tons of white, Egyptian sand were flown in to create a beach for the hotel’s guests. Butler service is included, of course.

The Plaza in New York City

You may know the Plaza from the film Bride Wars, in which Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson fight over the venue. But this New York institution offers the city’s richest so much more than a dream wedding venue. The hotel oozes old-school American style and retains much of its original charm from the 1900s. Its Royal Plaza Suite is the favourite choice for visiting VIPs, giving them a stunning view over the city. With a formal dining room, library, full kitchen, gym and butler service, all you’ve got to do is put your feet up and order a drink.

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

If you live and breathe for luxury voyages, – and I’ve tempted you enough to book a holiday to one of these stunning locations – don’t miss out on a comprehensive travel insurance package. No matter how beautiful the resort, you’ll want to know that you are covered in case of any eventuality – especially if you decide to venture out of the hotel. InsureMore understands the needs of luxury travellers, whether you’re sunbathing in Dubai or taking a bite of the Big Apple. So, if you’re planning a luxury vacation, make sure you travel safely with comprehensive travel insurance from InsureMore. I’ll see you at the Plaza!
