The world is full of amazing places to visit. While most of us love to explore the different historical sites or lavish shopping destinations, sometimes your hotel might end up being so stunning you don’t want to leave. If you are looking for somewhere amazing to stay on your next holiday or you just want to see how the other half lives, here are a few of the world’s most luxurious hotels.
1. Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai
Perhaps the world’s most iconic luxury hotel is Dubai’s Burj Al Arab hotel. The sail resembling structure is home to luxurious rooms that all span two floors and come with incredible views of the harbour. You can also enjoy from a hovering tennis court and underwater restaurant and your very own on-call butler. If you want, you might even show up in your personal helicopter.
2. Mardan Palace Hotel, Turkey
Azeri billionaire TelmanIsmailov decided to build a luxury hotel in Turkey and he certainly succeeded in his goal in 2009. The hotel has the largest swimming pool in the Mediterranean and the suites are decorated with gold leaf, crystal and Italian marble. Not to mention that the sand on the poolside was flown to Turkey from Egypt.
3. The Westin Excelsior, Rome
All roads lead to Rome is the saying and they should preferably lead to this luxury hotel. The building is rich in architecture and history. Unlike some of the other 5-star hotels in the list, the Westin Excelsior is also rather affordable – unless you want to stay in the signature luxury cocoon.
4. CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa, Anguilla
If you’ve used CuisinArt products in your kitchen, you might be surprised to know the owners also have a luxury hotel in Anguilla. Just like the kitchen products, the hotel is functional and worthy of a try. You could stay in a hotel room or book your stay in a luxury villa. The site is great for staying in shape, as it has a state-of-the-art fitness complex and a spa to relax your sore muscles. The hotel also comes with a beautiful golf course if you’d like to play a few rounds.
