‘I know money can’t buy happiness but I think I’d cheer up much faster sipping champagne in my Presidential suite.’

Well, that’s life! Some of us are, by default, inclined towards the good things…err… things that come at a good price. And no, there’s nothing wrong with a little indulgence. It’s what keeps us motivated.

The idea of proudly walking up to the grand foyer, sleeping on the softest mattress under a crystal chandelier and tasting some of the finest gourmet meals makes us want to know where to seek unparalleled hospitality with opulence galore. So suit up and get ready to discover the world’s top 7 luxury hotels.

1.  Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi

2.  Mardan Palace in Turkey

This property’s opening was graced with the presence of Mariah Carey, Richard Gere, Paris Hilton, Sharon Stone, Monica Bellucci and Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev. Telman Ismailov, a Russian billionaire, built the Antalya-based hotel in 2009. It may have set him back by $1.65 billion, but the extravagant suites and glamorous interiors (with gold leaves and crystals) have brought worldwide recognition to Mardan Palace.

Not to miss the Mediterranean’s biggest swimming pool with a capacity of a thousand guests! 17 bars, ten separate dining areas, spa along with an aquarium of exotic marine life, and that’s not all! The sand on its private beach has 9,000 tons of white sand specially imported from Egypt. And then there’s the around-the-clock butler service! Need we say more?

    Today, I went to the beach front with my
    kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
