LUXURY: Top 5 Outrageous Luxury Hotels and Resorts

No. 5

Secrets Marquis, Los Cabos


Inspired by a celestial legend of two angels seeking paradise on earth, the spectacular lobby of Secrets Marquis Los Cabos opens out onto the wildly restless sea like a temple to its creation. Gorgeous specially commissioned sculptures, massive waterfalls, spectacular infinity pools, and a lovely serene spa set the stage where VIPs love to come and play. (George Clooney’s beach villa is next door.) Luxurious rooms boast balconies where you can often spot migrating whales, and there are also private villas with personal dipping pools. This is where many foreign dignitaries stay when in town.


No. 4

The Boulders, Arizona


An extremely prestigious golf and spa resort, the swanky decor is left up to Mother Nature at The Boulders, as it’s impossible to compete with stunningly surreal 12-million-year-old rock formations. Spanning 1,300 acres of the Sonoran Desert, ultimate natural rejuvenation is promised at their massive spa compound, and their two golf courses are world class. There’s also an über private gated Villa Retreat for celebs seeking anonymity. PR rep Deborah Bridges says, “Our clientele is among the wealthiest in the world, but we’re not allowed to talk about who our VIP guests are until they’re dead.” That says it all.


No. 3


Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai


Resembling a billowing sail, the stunning architecture of Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai makes it one of the most photographed in the world. All rooms are luxurious suites spanning two floors with state-of-the art everything and incredible views. And beyond the unique over-the-top amenities like the attached heliport and hovering tennis courts, there is a vast array of futuristic dining and nightlife options. Their guest care is also seriously intensive. Upscale extras include in-suite check-in, 24/7 personal on-call butlers, and a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce fleet, all catering to an extremely well-heeled VIP clientele that often includes royalty.

No. 2

Mardan Palace Hotel, Turkey


Built by Russian Billionaire Telman Ismailov in 2009 to the tune of $1.65 billion, theMardan Palace Hotel in Antalya, Turkey boasts the largest swimming pool in the Mediterranean (fits 1,000 guests) and is touted as one of the most elite luxury hotels in Europe. Beyond the sinfully sumptuous suites and jaw-dropping interiors of gold leaf, crystal, and Italian marble, there are also ten dining spots, 17 bars, a lavish spa and a sunken aquarium full of exotic fish. There's more: 9,000 tons of white sand was flown in from Egypt for the beach alone, and 24/7 personal butler service is also included.


No. 1

Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi


Costing approximately $3 billion to build, Emirates Palace has 394 rooms and suites, 40 meeting and conference rooms, a white sand beach, a myriad of pools and fountains, a sumptuous spa, marble imported from 13 different countries, and over 1,000 crystal chandeliers. It’s like a small pleasure fortress that also boasts the most prestigious marina development in the Middle East. Royalty, or those who want to feel like it, can luxuriate in one of the many palace suites, all with lavish surroundings that would befit a Sultan of old, with enough modern amenities to please today’s top tycoons.


So where are we going on vacation for 2015?
