Lover’s Deep – Luxury Submarine Hotel – $150,000

Lover’s Deep – Luxury Submarine Hotel

The Lover’s Deep Luxury Submarine Hotel is the most expensive hotel in the world, costing $150,000 per night. It’s not the same sort of experience as some of the other hotels on the list, as it requires you to go underwater in a submarine. If you want to combine a night away with an adventure, this may be the hotel for you. The submarine/hotel is based in St Lucia and may travel around the Caribbean to meet the needs of its customers. You’ll stay in 5-star accommodations under the seas, complete with your captain, private chef, and butler, speed boat transports to and from the submarine, and some optional extras like helicopter transfers, beach landings, and champagne-soaked breakfasts. 

Also, you have the opportunity to tailor the voyage to fit your tastes, so if you prefer one site over another, the captain will obey.
