The world is full of magical places that ought to be explored before it’s too late. But if you’re keen on luxury, like we are, there’s a certain number of destinations you might want to take a closer look at. Here’s our current top 5.
Emirates Palace // Abu Dhabi
The Emirates Palace equals Middle Eastern luxury at its best. It has its own impeccable beach, a spectacular set-up of water fountains and the sun is always shining. What more to ask for? The interior includes no less than 1000 crystal chandeliers, an impressive spa area and more than 40 meeting and conference rooms – no wonder this hotel is popular amongst the wealthiest business men of the region!
Stay in one of the Diamond, Coral or Pearl rooms, or indulge in true luxury in one of the 6 styles of suites overlooking the skyline of Abu Dhabi. For more information go to www.kempinski.com.
Mardan Palace Hotel // Turkey
The Mardan Palace is the owner of the largest pool in the Mediterranean, which can contain no less than 1.000 bathing guests at the same time (!). Behind it all stands a wealthy Russian business man, who decided to build the hotel in 2009 for the tidy sum of 1,65 billion dollars! A great part of this amount is seemingly spent on importing luxurious materials from other countries, for example sand from Egypt and marble from Italy.
The hotel has been mentioned several times to be amongst the most luxurious on the European continent, which says a lot!
Mardan Palace accommodates no less than 9 restaurants, which gives guests the chance of trying something new every night. Furthermore, guests will find an extraordinary spa & wellness area, where VIP’s can book their own entire spa for a day. For more information go to www.mardanpalace.com.
Burj Al Arab // Dubai
It’s hard to make such a list without including the almost iconic Burj Al Arab in Dubai! The breath-taking skyscraper, whose shape resembles a gigantic sail, is considered to be one of the most photographed buildings in the world.
Here you can enjoy luxury in all shapes and sizes and the hotel offers pretty much everything (and we mean everything!) you can imagine – including private tennis courts and a helicopter landing ground on the roof! Furthermore, Burj Al Arab contains several restaurants and a whole army of chauffeurs, who will gladly take you for a drive in one of the beautiful Rolls Royces.
