Who said look but don't touch?

Are you used to traveling in budget hotels? To make you dream, we have fun listing the most luxurious hotels in the world. In these more-than-exclusive accommodations, the price of the rooms doesn't matter, as long as there's no shortage of rhinestones and gold faucets.

10. The Boulders Resort & Spa in Arizona

Lost in the heart of Arizona's Sonoran Desert, The Boulders is a large resort with two golf courses, a spa, four pools, a fitness center and seven restaurants. The resort is the perfect place to spend an unforgettable vacation with yoga, pilates, golf and tennis classes. The perfect place to stay for a lifetime... if only we were billionaires.

The most basic room is available from 240 euros per night.

9. The Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi

The Emirates Palace is an exclusive hotel if ever there was one; in fact, it cost three billion dollars to build. Its location is extraordinary, as it is surrounded by fine white sand beaches, swimming pools and fountains. It has almost 400 rooms and suites and a magnificent marble spa. A huge space illuminated by more than 1,000 crystal chandeliers.

The most basic room costs 320 € per night, but imagine how much they spend per month on the electricity bill!

8. The Mardan Palace Hotel in Turkey

A hotel that cost $65 billion to build in 2009 can only deserve all the superlatives. Here you will find the largest swimming pool in the Mediterranean, one of the most beautiful spas in the region and an exotic aquarium that will take your breath away. Lovers of luxury will fall under the spell of Italian marble, crystal chandeliers and gold-leafed furniture... The rest of us mortals will fall round as soon as we see the bill.

All this at 500 euros per night on average.

7. The Plaza Hotel in New York

It is probably the most famous luxury hotel in the world. The Plaza Hotel, located on 5th Avenue in the Big Apple, right across from Central Park, offers its select guests spacious and luxurious rooms, a champagne bar and a gourmet restaurant. A place, in short, where you are treated like an emperor. Its prices are also imperial: to stay within its walls you will have to pay the modest sum of 500 euros, which is more than most Madrid-New York flights!

6. The Royal Mansour in Marrakech

Book a flight from Madrid to Marrakech and treat yourself to a dreamy night at the Royal Mansour, a palace located 5 minutes walk from the Jemaa el-Fna Square. This 5-star establishment of pure oriental style has outdoor and indoor pools, an exclusive spa and a gourmet restaurant - now that's Asian luxury! However, be prepared to pay 1,300 euros for the "cheapest" room.

5. Marina Bay Sands in Singapore

Anyone who has ever been to Singapore has seen this hotel, at least from afar. With beautiful views of the bay, this ship-shaped establishment has become the symbol of the city in a very short time. For €1,000 per night, you can treat yourself to a sumptuous double suite with a breathtaking view of Singapore. If your budget allows it, treat yourself to a ticket to the huge pool located on the roof of the hotel and enjoy breathtaking views of the city, over 200 meters high! If your budget doesn't allow... you'll still be looking at this hotel from afar!

4. The Saint Regis in Rome

Sleeping at the Saint Regis in Rome costs a small fortune, but it's really worth it if you have the money. This is where the most exclusive travelers from all over the world stay, for example, in one of their €2,000 per night rooms that include champagne, Mediterranean cuisine and the services of a butler. We don't know if you'll have a pianist in the bathroom, but all you have to do is ask! If a classic room is not enough for you, you can always book the Ambassador Suite with its marble bathrooms! Better save telling you the price, because you'll need a lot of money to do it!

3. The Mandarin Oriental in Paris

With its panoramic suite available from 4500 euros per night, the Mandarin Oriental in Paris is one of the most luxurious hotels in France. This palace has a terrace bar and two gourmet restaurants run by internationally renowned chefs - how do you eat that! The hotel is located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, a short walk from Place Vendôme.

2. Laucala Island Resort in Fiji.

At the Laucala Island Resort you'll find some of the most expensive rooms and suites on the planet. Here you can also swim in one of the most beautiful pools in the world, a natural lagoon on three different levels. Imagine this grandiose establishment located in the heart of a heavenly setting, a stone's throw from a turquoise sea... A true paradise! A paradise with an entrance only suitable for gods.

1. The Burj-al-Arab in Dubai

Located on a private island in the heart of Dubai, the Burj-al-Arab is the most luxurious hotel in the world. Self-proclaimed 7-star, it offers luxury suites and cabanas overlooking the sea and 9 gourmet restaurants. To get to the hotel, well-heeled guests can take one of the hotel's Rolls-Royce cars or a helicopter. We're not sure if it can be reached by flying carpet, like a sultan from the 1001 nights, although anything is possible! The double room is available from 1700 euros.
