5. The Pikaia Lodge, Galapagos Islands = $10,000 a Week
Located on the Galapagos Islands, where Charles Darwin ruminated on the origin of man, the Pikaia Lodge is a paradise in a far-off land. It’s centrally-located so that visitors can use it as a foundation to view all of the islands in this archipelago, and it’s also eco-friendly, with a host of innovations that help travelers to lesson their carbon footprint while they visit.
This is luxury for people who enjoy adventure and exploration; it’s luxury for those who want to get closer to nature and see the world as Charles Darwin saw it many years ago. But it’s luxury that comes at a cost and that cost is just over $10,000 per person per week.
4. Bisate Lodge, Rwanda = $1,000 to $2,000 a Night
If Pikaia Lodge wasn’t quite unique enough for you then maybe this safari experience in the heart of Rwanda will be. It’s a secluded spot that has just half a dozen villas, all designed to look like the palaces of ancient African kings and queens.
It’s right next to the Volcano National Park and offers terrace views of the volcano, as well as the surrounding forests and its many creatures. How many hotels do you know that can offer you a view of a volcano and a family of gorillas while you enjoy brunch over an open fire?
3. Penthouse Apartment at Hotel George V, Paris = $25,000
Paris is the epitome of class and luxury; it’s the most romantic city in the world and also one of the most expensive. If you book into the Penthouse Apartment at this centrally located hotel you can enjoy the very best that this city has to offer, from the great food that is just a phone call away, to a clear and unobstructed view of the Eiffel Tower.
If you ever decide to leave your room then you also have sights like the Arc de Triomphe and locations like the Champs de Elysees at your mercy, but with a price tag like that and amenities such as an infinity bathtub, a wall full of fine art, and your own private concierge, why would you ever want to leave?
2. North Island, Seychelles = $10,000 a Night
The Seychelles is a truly stunning holiday hotspot and the private island of North Island is one of its best features. It has everything you could ask for in a luxury holiday destination, including clear turquoise waters, golden sands, and year-long sunshine.
This island is rumored to have played host to countless celebs over the years and it may have even welcomed Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge during their famous honeymoon.
But of course, a royal island comes at a royal cost, and you’ll need at least $10,000 a night to book here.
1. Hilltop Villa, Laucala Island = $40,000 a Night
Any list of the most expensive luxurious holidays is not complete without a mention of Laucala Island in Fiji. This private island is the height of luxury and was designed to give VIPs the best possible experience. You can rent out the island’s best villa and enjoy life in the lap of luxury, or you can spend three to four times as much and have the entire island to yourself.
