Dubai al Arab Jumeirah Hotel, which bills itself as the most luxurious hotel in the world. And it’s not just the hotel operators saying that. Travel agents and industry analysts consider it one of the only true 6-star hotels in the world. Completed in 1999 for approximately $1 billion, it sits on a man-made island in Dubai. The cheapest mid-week discount rate for one person is $1,635/night. That’s a bargain in this establishment. The two-story Royal Suite goes for over $24,000/night. For that price, you get a lot. Private elevator access, your own private butler, a private 12-person dining room, and 8,400 square feet (780 square meters) of top-of-the-line luxury.
