Take a look at the most expensive luxury suites in the world

When most of us are going on holiday, we’re looking for a balance between good value and staying somewhere fabulous, but for some travellers with deep pockets, money is not an issue and they can afford to stay at some of the ritziest hotels and resorts in the world. This week, Elite Traveler magazine revealed the ten most pricey suites on the planet, where holidaymakers live in the lap of luxury.

The most extravagant suite on the list is in New York City‘s The Mark Hotel, on the Upper East Side. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom abode is 12,000 square-feet in size and has stunning views of Central Park from its penthouse. The hotel describes itself as boldly lavish, and it’s not wrong – this suite has four fireplaces and a 2,500-square-foot outdoor terrace. However as space is a premium in Manhattan, it’s perhaps not surprising that the room tariff is an eye-watering $75,000 per night.

London‘s The Langham Sterling suite is far cheaper at $35,500 per night, but still well beyond the average tourist’s means. It sleeps twelve, all of furniture in the suite is custom-made and a personal butler service 24 hours a day is included.

Rounding out the top ten is The Faena Hotel, the latest addition to Miami’s top end hotel collection. With a panoramic view of the ocean and walk-in-closets, you won’t doubt you’re in the lap of luxury in their Faena suite, especially when you consider the $20,000 price tag per night.
