5) Hilltop Villa, Laucala Island ($64,000/night):
We are moving through the most expensive hotel rooms in the world list, and we will find Hilltop Villa, the 5th most expensive, on the private island of Laucala in Fiji. Its grounds cover 1.5 acres and, as its name suggests, rests atop a hill, which is the highest peak on the island. This slice of paradise can be rented for $64,000 dollars a night.
Included in the price are actually 3 buildings; the main villa and two spacious guest residences. This equates to almost 13,000 square feet of living space and a whopping 118,000 plus square feet of bedrooms and other private quarters.
A spectacular several-story panorama pool is the centerpiece of the luxury villa resort. It is supplied with a waterfall and has a jacuzzi.
Guests are extremely well looked after, with a range of services available. These include a chauffeur service, nursery with a private nanny, a private chef, private jet ski and your own personal boat.
This hilltop retreat is perfect for escaping to a whole other world, soaking up the sun and drinking by the pool, not to mention the tropical views all year round.
4) Mark Penthouse Suite ($75,000/night):
The Mark Penthouse Suite overlooks Central Park in New York City from the top of the Mark Hotel. A one night stay there costs $75,000.
It is the largest hotel suite in North America, with more than 10,000 square feet of space. This record is doubly impressive when you consider the high real-estate costs and usually small rental space of properties in the city that never sleeps.
The suite itself has five bedrooms, six marble bathrooms, two powder rooms, a chef’s kitchen, four fireplaces, a library lounge, a private elevator and a living room with a high ceiling and grand piano that can be converted into a ballroom.
The hotel’s owner, Izak Senbahar, told The New York Times in 2015 that it’s a place where “fashion people and celebrities feel liberated” - and it’s easy to see why, thanks to its impressive list of collaborators.
Guests can enjoy 24/7 room service dining by Michelin-star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and 24/7 access to Bergdorf Goodman, transport to which is provided privately via The Mark Pedicab.
Royal family member, Meghan Markle, famously hosted her baby shower at the luxurious Mark Penthouse suite.

Located in Geneva, Switzerland, the Royal Penthouse Suite at Hotel President Wilson is the largest hotel room in Europe. It measures a vast 18,083 square feet. It costs $80,000 US dollars per night.
That said, it can accommodate up to 24 individuals, so if you decide to split the bill with 23 of your friends it'll cost $3,333 per night each.
The suite has 12 luxury bedrooms, 12 marble bathrooms and overlooks the gorgeous Lake Geneva amidst the scenic Swiss Alps. As well as breathtaking views, your party will be served by 24-hour personal assistance, a chef and a butler. You will also have exclusive access to a private elevator and en-suite gym.
Throughout the rooms, you will find expensive, high-end features like the 1930 Brunswick billiard table, the Steinway grand piano, and a Bag & Olufsen’s home cinema system.
The suite has been designed with security as a top priority. A large safe, camera system and bulletproof gas ensure the safety of guests and their belongings. Perhaps, for this reason, many celebrities, and government officials have been known to stay in the Royal Penthouse Suite.
2) The Empathy Suite ($100,000/night):
We are getting to the top of the list of the most expensive hotel rooms in the world, and this time, we are going to the USA once again...
The Empathy Suite is a two-story luxury sky villa that sits atop the Fantasy Tower of Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, USA. It was designed by famed artist Damien Hirst, so naturally, it doubles as an art gallery and features six of Hirst's masterpieces. A minimum of two nights is required to book the suite and costs $100,000 per night.
Located just off the Vegas strip, which can be viewed from the balcony, it features two luxury master bedrooms with California king-sized beds, a jacuzzi, 2 bathtubs, a games room complete with pool table and a 13 seater bar.
There is also a private gym and dining room with a table that seats eight people.

The Empathy Suite was included as one of the 100 Greatest Places in Time Magazine’s 2019 list. It was formerly known as the Hugh Hefner suite and priced at $40,000 a night but Hirst's remodel added $60,000 to the nightly fee.
1) North Pole Igloos ($105,000):
We reached number #1 place of the most expensive hotel rooms in the world list, and this 'hotel room' might surprise you...
Guests who stay at this unique accommodation in the North Pole are part of an exclusive club. For a total of $105,000, you can stay the night in a heated glass igloo in the Arctic Circle.
Due to treacherous weather conditions, the North Pole Igloos are only accessible in April by helicopter and in June and July by ship. Only 1000 people make the trip annually.
The total cost does also includes two nights in Svalbard, Norway, a 2-hour helicopter ride away. Guests are left to co-ordinate their own travel between the isolated island and the North Pole glacier.
