The world’s most expensive hotel room? The most expensive hotel rooms ever built, or the most expensive hotel room per night? Let’s answer the first question real quick before getting to the real deal. Most expensive hotel rooms ever built: You find them in “The 13” – a luxury hotel in Macau. It did reportedly cost US$7,000,000 per room. There are 200 of them. The smallest shelter is just 2,000 sq ft small. Owner of the “The 13” is billionaire Stephen Hung.
But more interesting: the most expensive hotel room per night. Here comes our top-7-list:
7. “The Apartment” at Connaught Hotel,
“The Apartment” at Connaught Hotel in London costs a stunning US$23,000 per night. This penthouse was designed by David Collins. It features a living room with an impressive collection of customized furniture, some veeeery limited-edition books, and sure also a decent selection of unique antiques.
6. “Shangri-La Suite” at Shangri-La Bosphorus,
One night at the Shangri-La Suite costs just $26,000. Of course this suite overlooks the Bosphorus straight. But it also has three separate terraces, a marble bathroom, heated floors and a TV embedded in a mirror. On a scale between 1 and 10, how fancy is this?
5. “Presidential Suite” at Mandarin Oriental,
At the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Pudong (that’s a suburb of Shanghai) you pay 26,500 for a night the “Presidential Suite”. This transaction will give you access to your own own private wine cellar, and a fully equipped kitchen with private dining room attached. You can enjoy not just one but two private roof gardens for a view of Shanghai. But because of heavy air pollution in this mega city you might then need to take a bath. The bathtub is located in a bathroom bigger than an entire Hong Kong apartment.
4. “Royal Villa” at Grand Resort Lagonissi,
For just $35,000 per night you can enjoy one of two master bedrooms in the Royal Villa at Grand Resort Lagonissi. And yes, the bathroom are over-sized. But well, you paid for it, right?

2. Hilltop Estate at Laucala Island, Fiji
Now it’s really getting fancy. We need to somehow make it to Fiji. The location alone is so far off everything. That already costs extra. The Hilltop Estate Owner’s Accommodation at the Laucala Island Resort is 2,100 km away from Auckland, New Zealand. That’s the nearest bigger city. In order to stay in this US$40,000-a-night villa guests must first fill out an application and then wait for an invitation by property owner Dietrick Mateschitz. Never heard this name? He is a Red Bull billionaire. The Hilltop estate is one of 25 villas located on the island; luxurious hideaways.
