Downing 27,321’s in the Sky View Bar at the Burj El Arab
A luxury break can’t get any more luxury than a stay in the world’s only seven star hotel, and with rooms starting at £550 per night, you need to do something spectacular to set yourself apart from the millionaires and celebrities that are often seen frequenting this lavish hotel. The solution is a visit to the Sky View Bar which not only offers panoramic views across the whole of Dubai, but also the most expensive cocktail in the world. The 27,321 is named after its price in the local currency but were the cocktail in England then it would have to change its name to the less salubrious £5,029.00.
Chartering a Private Yacht around the Maldives
The Annaliesse and her sister ship, the Alysia, are the most expensive chartered yachts in the world, and for a mere £85,000 per day, you and up to 36 guests can cruise around the Maldives in some serious style. The Annaliesse comes complete with 34 crew members eager to attend your every whim, and a range of on-board pamper facilities including a marble-faced Roman bath, sauna, steam-room, Jacuzzi, on-board beauty salon, therapy beds and even a massage centre. But even the most pampered princess can get bored from being polished and preened all the time, and if you find yourself needing to take a break from luxury, you can always escape to the yacht’s onboard cinema and library.
Travelling on the World’s Most Expensive Plane Ticket
Your luxury holiday begins the moment that you board the plane, so you probably want your outward journey to be as memorable as your luxury break. The world’s most expensive plane ticket was a $100,000 ticket sold via eBay in 2007 to an Australian man, and his date, for a journey on Singapore Airline’s inaugural flight using the jumbo A380 Airbus. But there’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition in the travel industry and with Boeing having scheduled the first flight on its 787-Dreamliner for July 1st, you may be able to get your hands on a pricier ticket. Best start watching eBay now!
Eating the Most Expensive Meal in the World
The most expensive meal in the world was sold at the Dome Restaurant, Bangkok in 2007. The guest-list was a mere 15 people largely made up of American and Asian gaming and media moguls, and the price of the meal was a gut-busting $300,000. This involved six separate chefs being flown in from separate corners of the world and whilst the eight course meal has now been and gone, you can still enjoy a slightly cheaper meal whilst on your luxury holiday in the hotel’s outdoor restaurant, Sirocco. The restaurant also boasts the accolade of the highest seafood restaurant in the world.
A Holiday in the Rani Resort, Maldives
The Maldives are a stunning destination for a luxury holiday and Rani is definitely one of the most luxurious and most expensive resorts in the world. A night here will set you back around £7,000 but you do get your money’s worth. The four-figured amount gives you several hours use of the resort’s main yacht and unlimited food and drink in the restaurant, as well as spa treatments. However, if you can’t quite justify spending that kind of money on a day’s worth of pampering, then not to worry as the Maldives has plenty of other lavish resorts and boutique hotels that are worth exploring.
