The 6 most luxurious hotels in the world
Hotel stars are a sign of the standard a hotel offers. Criteria such as concierge, hotel room amenities, room service and individual guest requests distinguish a luxury hotel from a mid-range hotel. There are some hotels around the world that exceed these criteria once again and since there is no standard star certification, they are often referred to as 6- or even 7-star hotels. We show you the luxury hotels for which the 5 stars were not enough.
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah – Dubai
“A global landmark. An architectural marvel. Experience the exceptional.”
Known in the media as the “world’s only 7-star hotel”, it falls into the category of high-end hotels. It is one of the most luxurious and expensive hotels in the world. The imposing building is located on its own island in Dubai and its eye-catching architecture makes it hard to miss. Guests are picked up from the airport by helicopter or Rolls Royce fleet. The hotel, which resembles a sail, offers Arabian opulence combined with exquisite service.
