For many of us, just going away on holiday is a very big treat. A chance to leave everyday life behind and indulge in a few of life’s little luxuries is a great way to recharge the batteries. Have you ever thought of how the other half lives? How do the rich and famous spoil themselves and recharge? Let’s take a look at some of the most luxurious hotel amenities many of us can only dream about.
24-karat Gold iPads
The minute you walk into the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah in Dubai you’re showered with luxury. Considering its reputation as one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, we wouldn’t expect anything less.
Forget using the telephone or an access card to take advantage of hotel amenities or find out information. On arrival, you’ll receive a specially programed 24-karat gold iPad to access hotel amenities and information.
A Fragrance Butler
Yes, that’s right – a Fragrance Butler! Rosewood Hotels offer a butler service to help you smell your best. Coming directly to your room with a fragrance menu ranging from Tom Ford to Chanel.
While we’re on the topic of smelling good – how about a soap concierge? The Viceroy Riviera Maya in Mexico will send you your very own soap concierge on arrival with a range of organic, artisanal, handmade soaps to make your stay much more luxurious.
Many luxurious hotels now offer a wardrobe stylist to have you looking your best. The concierge will bring in a range of styles in your size, and a wardrobe stylist can put together the latest looks just for you.
Another luxurious hotel amenity now offered by many hotels is your own private chef. Forget dining with everyone else. Have your very own private chef prepare dinner or better yet, every meal during your stay at some of the most luxurious hotels.
Private Fireworks Display
End your special night off with a bang at the Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Mexico with your very own private fireworks display!
Champagne Vending Machine
At the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida, there’s no room for soft drinks and snacks in their vending machines. It’s only the best Moët & Chandon Champagne available in this vending machine. Purchase a specialised coin at the concierge desk to use in this machine which will dispense a 200ml bottle of champagne. This is a growing trend with many other hotels also now providing champagne vending machines. Wouldn’t it be nice!
