    Stay at the Royal Villa, and you’ll be flown into Athens on a private jet, courtesy of the hotel. You’ll also have a private chef, personal trainer, and personal pianist available during your stay. Not sure which pool you want to take a dip in? No problem: The suite has both an indoor and outdoor pool. If it's good enough for Leonardo DiCaprio or Meryl Streep, it's good enough for us. From $47,000 a night.

    The Raj Palace really was a raj's palace before it was converted into a hotel, so expect some major opulence. This six-bedroom suite has ivory and gold furniture, a private theater, a library, and a dining room. Guests also have access to a personal kitchen staff and a team of butlers. From $40,000 a night.

    Your pockets will need to be extra deep for one night in these hotel suites around the world.
