Five Of The Best Hotels On The Planet

All that most people want from a hotel that they stay in is a peaceful night of sleep, a personal and attentive service and a clean room; however, if we all could afford it we would be indulging in those added extras that turn a great holiday into a life changing one. There are many resorts all around the world that claim to offer the life of luxury to anyone who can afford to stay in one of their much sought after rooms; but which are the best of the best?

Going on holiday is all about taking some time away from your regular routine and relaxing in new and exciting surroundings, but these hotels take this to a new level and offer something that is sure to help create the holiday of a life time.

The Burj Al Arab, Dubai

This iconic hotel situated on Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach is well known around the world for its distinctive sail-shaped design and the fact that it is synonymous with this part of the UAE. Not only does the hotel offer great views of the city and out over the Persian Gulf, it also provides so much more for its guests. You can arrive on your check in date by helicopter, experience a tour of the city and then land on the hotel’s private helipad, and that is just for starters. The resort also offers amazing spa treatments, multiple restaurants, a water park and a gold plated iPad for every guest.

The Four Seasons Kailua-Kona, Hawaii 

The Four Seasons is a name that a lot of people will recognise due to their amazing range of hotels and resorts around the world, but this one in beautiful Hawaii is perhaps the jewel in the crown. Firstly, it’s in Hawaii; giving it a head start over so many other locations before you even begin to look at everything else. It also offers a wide range of gorgeous golf courses and tennis courts, seven different pools (one of which is filled with tropical fish), a beach side location and plenty of entertainment for the children.

The Plaza Athenee, Paris 

Everybody goes to Paris in order to get a glimpse of the iconic Eiffel Tower but if you are lucky enough to be able to afford one of the suites in the Plaza Athenee you won’t even have to leave your hotel room to do this. As well as having one of the world’s most famous landmarks on your doorstep, you will also be able to choose from a pillow menu that offers six different levels of comfort, dine in Alain Ducasse’s five star restaurant and take a tour of the cellar which holds over 35,000 bottles of wine.

Corinthia Hotel, London 

There are two things that make a stay at the Corinthia hotel one of the best experiences you will ever have. The first is undoubtedly the picture perfect view of the London skyline and the second is the vast range of spa treatments that are on offer. The Corinthia claims to provide the next generation of spa experiences which include specialised maternity sessions, those that focus on detox or reflexology, and intensive, enriching massages for all parts of the body.

The Upper House, Hong Kong 

This stunning hotel has beautiful rooms, outstandingly intuitive service and displays more than just a little thought towards the environment. Guests can check in and out without any paper being needlessly used and are also given use of an iPod touch which is preloaded with entertainment and important information about the hotel and the local area. The Upper House also uses hybrid Lexus cars to transport their guests around with as little impact on the environment as possible. They even have their own ‘maxi’ bar which is stocked much more extravagantly than your usual mini-bar and offers more than just an overpriced can of fizz.

Whether you are looking for cheap hotels in Cheltenham or a luxury resort in Bora-Bora; there are a few things that every hotel should have in abundance. However, the locations detailed in this list are worthy of their title of world leaders in luxury hospitality.
