    6 of the World's Most Luxurious Hotel Suites

    I’m not afraid to say it — I love traveling in luxury! There is nothing like walking into a luxe suite and being hit with that “wow factor.” It's nice to feel like the rich and famous while you're on vacation. Well, in order to book a stay in these next set of rooms, you might have to actually be rich and famous. These are some of the most expensive hotel suites in the world, and they have the price tags to prove it.

    The Royal Penthouse Suite at Hotel Pres. Wilson, Geneva, Switzerland

    This hotel suite is 18,000 square feet, contains 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, and takes up one entire floor of the hotel itself. As such, you can expect a hefty price tag to boot. It will cost you about $65,000 per night to stay here. That's the base rate, and it can go up to $80,000 during the peak season. However, you will get your own human-sized safe, bulletproof windows, armored doors, and even the helipad. This makes these accommodations popular among the rich and famous that need privacy while they travel.

    The Royal Villa at Grand Resort Lagonissi, Athens-Sounion, Greece

    This one is not quite as expensive as the previous hotel suite. It will only set you back a mere $47,000. However, you will be flown in by private jet at the hotel’s expense and also have access to your own private chef, personal trainer, and even a pianist to play some melodies for you while you relax. Also, if you're prone to indecision then good news, the suite features both indoor and outdoor pool. Nice, right?

    Ty Warner Penthouse Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel New York, New York

    This little gem checks in at $45,000 a night. However, you do get to stay on the 52nd floor in a 4,300 square-foot all-glass suite that features one of the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline to be found. Cathedral ceilings, calfskin leather walls, a personal butler, Rolls-Royce chauffeur, and a personal trainer are just a few of the perks that come with this amazing space.

    Shahi Mahal Suite at Raj Palace, Jaipur, India

    For a measly $40,000 a night, you can stay in an authentic palace. This hotel was actually a palace before the conversion. Your suite will consist of six bedrooms and contains furniture made of ivory and gold. Check out your own private theater, read a bit in your library, or have dinner in your dining room. You also have your own kitchen staff and butler at your disposal, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to entertaining yourself in this great space.

    Hilltop Estate, Laucala Island Resort, Fiji

    Take a walk on the tropical side and stay in a billionaire’s home. This lavish suite will run $40,000 per night, but the kicker is you can only reserve the space if you obtain a personal invitation or referral. You get your own chef and nanny, as well as access to horse riding, a golf course featuring 72 holes, and your own secluded, private beach.

    Penthouse Suite, Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez, France

    This hotel suite has the distinguished privilege of being one of the largest in Europe. For $37,500 per night you get your own private bathrooms. Granted, they are decked out in marble so that contributes to the hefty price. You also get your own 1,000 square-foot terrace, private of course, that overlooks the Bay of Cannes that stretches out to the Mediterranean Sea. If you need a drink, no need to lift a finger, as this suite comes with your very own private butler.

    Now these may be out of range for the typical traveler, but we can all dream right?  Look at it this way, it if you ever win the lottery or have a long lost billionaire aunt who puts you in her will, you now have a few places to spend it!
