Luxury Accommodation You Can Only Dream of Staying In
Authored by Tom at Backpackerboy.com
Just like most people when it comes to traveling the world, I keep a very long bucket list, and have recently started crossing off dream destinations and epic experiences alike.
For backpacking travelers like me, luxury hotels and vacation clubs are a dream. Egyptian cotton, silk pillows, and the finest Italian Frette. It would be amazing to rest my head in luxury everywhere I go.
For right now these spectacular hotels remain active on my bucket-list, though who knows, sometimes dreams do come true! Here are 4 of the most luxurious accommodations around the world of which I would love to organize a stay if money was no object!
Burj Al Arab in Dubai
Topping my list is the only 7 star hotel in the world. Known for its jaw-dropping architecture and engineering, Burj Al Arab is one of the most famous landmarks in Dubai. Shaped to resemble the sail of a ship, it’s unique design has made it famous all over the world.
The hotel stands on a reclaimed island in Jumeirah beach. Housing 202 luxurious suites, this haven offers travelers the total privacy and luxury that every vacation deserves. Guests may choose to arrive the hotel via helicopter, and enjoy an aerial view of the city of Dubai in the process.
Guest-rooms come with the option of private butler service, and don’t be surprised if you’re offered the use of a gold iPad! Various luxury cars are also available for hire for those wanting to take a Ferrari or Lamborghini for a spin. After all, there’s no better way to fit in as a local in Dubai!!
Shemshak Lodge, Courchevel
Shemshak Lodge is a stunning ski chalet in Courchevel, France, and is truly ultimate in ski accommodation.
Shemshak is a dream destination for any ski lover, and having this as your base for a ski holiday definitely allows for bragging rights. Set right on the piste and with service that would please even the most demanding customer, there really is no better place to get your ski on. And Courchevel itself isn’t too bad either!

Palacio Nazarenas in Cusco
Now one of the world’s most luxurious hotels, the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas was once a palace, then a convent, and now a hotel. Today it is one of the most exclusive hotels in Cusco.
An ancient fountain sits at the heart of the hotel, and continues to capture the hearts of many guests today. Alongside sits the first outdoor heated pool in the city.
The 55 luxurious suites come in various styles, all equipped with their own private bar where guests can choose to enjoy concocting their own drinks. Worth a try, isn’t it?! Moreover, a large well-preserved chapel stands near the entrance, and a library full of artifacts is found on the second level. This property is a living history book, and a luxurious one at that!
For those who wish to pamper themselves with a relaxing massage when in Peru, the spa is open to serve you. And, who could forget the fine restaurants? Dine in and you will gladly be served with its famous local cuisine.
The Peninsula Hotel in Tokyo
While Japan remains one of Asia’s top tourist destinations, one should not miss visiting Tokyo, and organizing a stay at the Peninsula Hotel.
The world class hotel can be reached through a variety of elegant transportation services such as helicopters, riverboats or motor yachts, or perhaps you prefer to travel via tuk-tuk, jeepney or BMW instead. Of course, your gastronomic experience will be filled with only the finest in local cuisine and other Japanese delicacies as well.
Each of the Peninsula’s private rooms are uniquely structured for a comfortable lifestyle. Not to mention, the Peninsula Tokyo has gained recognition for its patronage to support energy conservation.
Now that the movement behind responsible travel is truly taking hold, the hotel’s commitment to be an environmentally responsible hotel attracts more tourists than almost any other luxury property in the world.
Japan being famous for its cherry blossoms, the hotel also keeps up a range of beautiful decorative displays allowing guests the opportunity to truly experience the famous season. Contact Ampersand Travel for more information.
