8 of the Most Expensive Hotels in the World ...

The most expensive hotels in the world are often extremely extravagant. While you’d expect presidential and penthouse suites to attract top dollar, in most cases the standard room rate at these places would still make the average person balk and hold onto their credit cards just that little bit tighter. While travelling first class and five stars isn’t an option for most of us, it is interesting to see how the other half lives (and travels, for that matter). Take a look at the following list of some of the most expensive hotels in the world.

1. Le Dune, Forte Village Resort

This hotel in Sardinia, Italy is one of the most expensive hotels in the world. The seaside resort is located in one of the most picturesque locations on earth. The average room rate here is around $2500 per night. For your troubles you’ll get idyllic Mediterranean views, luxury settings, and access to a range of resort services.
