Traveling can be an expensive hobby, especially if you want to experience every inch of the globe. In order to budget for all the costly sights during the day, we have to be conservative with our hotel choices. Besides, the hotel is just a glorified bedroom where we go to recharge our batteries before the next day of activities, so extravagant features are rather redundant.
With that in mind, let us introduce to you the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, Switzerland. With prices starting at $52,000-per-night, the “majestic” suite is one of the most expensive in the world. But, would you pay that for it?
The suite is located on the entire eighth and top floor of the luxury hotel, which boasts stunning panoramic views of the expansive Lake Geneva. The serene scenes accessible via the terrace make the Royal Penthouse Suite priceless to all who stay within it, from celebrities to Heads of State.
Back inside, the suite offers 12 bedrooms and 12 marble bathrooms, complete with breathtaking views and lavish bath products from the luxury French fashion house, Hermès.
The suite stretches across 1800 m², which may not seem too impressive until you consider that the average three-bedroom home commands 147 m². Meaning that one of the rooms in the suite is essentially the size of your entire house.
How can that be possible, you ask? Well, the two master bedrooms both have a “vast walk-in” dressing room and a marble bathroom, complete with jacuzzi, separate shower, steam room and mirror than turns into a television.
The award-winning suite is the “largest and most luxurious of hotel suites” and as such, it contains many extravagant features such as “one of the biggest TV screens in the world”, a Steinway grand piano and a velvet billiard table. There are also ancient books, art pieces and a private fitness room to help you indulge during your stay.
As the hotel say themselves, “the suite leaves nothing to be desired.”
