The hotel includes a private butler and personal chef on staff should you need them. There are two master bedrooms with walk-in closets that would fit most NYC apartments.

Hotel George V’s Penthouse Apartment In Paris
Hotel George V is arguably the most famous and luxurious hotel in Paris, France. It opened in 1928, and became a part of the Four Seasons in 1997, which is very well known for providing luxe, lavish, impeccable accommodations the world over.

The inside is incredible as well, with a whole slew of luxury features. The penthouse starts at $26,500 per night and sleeps two.
The penthouse has a bathroom to die for. It’s just off the bedroom past a sliding glass door and is entirely done in beige marble. An infinity bath and walk in shower completes this spa like retreat.
White Desert’s Day Trip To Antarctica
I’m going to be saving up for my entire life to afford this jaw-dropping trip to Antarctica. I know, I know, an ice filled land is literally the last place you’re thinking to be luxurious, but hear us out on this one. Yes, you’re going to freeze your buns off, but you’re going to have the experience of a lifetime…
…and it will only set you back $195,000 dollars for the day. To start this trip off, you’re going to fly from Cape Town South Africa via Gulfstream all the way to Antarctica. Yes, it’s your own private flight. You get to pick between adrenaline fueled or a more low key trip itinerary while you’re there.
Wichaway Camp is featured in the photo above, and for $80,000 per person you can stay there for a whole week. Yes, it looks like something that belongs in mars, but the interior is pure luxury. Everything is draped in furs and you have pretty much unlimited access to champagne. Notable people that have stayed here include Buzz Aldrin (yes, the former astronaut) and Prince Harry.
Necker Island is a seventy-four acre private island among the British Virgin Islands. Richard Branson is the owner of this idyllic island, and he has called it, “his home and favorite hideaway”. He purchased it for just $180,000 back in the late 1970s. What a deal, because after investing five years and $10 million dollars, it’s estimated to be worth $60 million dollars.
You can rent out the entire island for $80,000 per night. This gets you accommodations for 34 of your friends, a dedicated staff of 100 members, food and drinks and alcohol included, two infinity pools, a hot tub that is on the beach, a small hot tub at the Great House, two tennis courts, windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing, snorkeling, kite-surfing, SCUBA diving, a bunk room full of toys and games for children, and a disco DJ. So if you do the math it’s really just $2,353 per night per person.
Barack and Michelle Obama, Kate Winslet, Mariah Carey, Robert DeNiro, Kate Moss, Princess Diana, and Nelson Mandela have all vacationed on Necker Island. Nick and Vanessa Lachey, as well as Richard Branson’s daughter Holly got married on Necker Island!
