Air travel is cheaper than ever, with budget airlines that can fly you halfway around the world for a few hundred Euros. This, combined with the prevalence of hostels, house shares and budget hotels, means it has never been cheaper to take a holiday. However, there are still some hugely expensive holidays that never go anywhere near a budget airline, or a budget anything for that matter.
7. Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado, USA = €100,000 a Week
For around €100,000 week you can live like a cowboy in the Old West, albeit with a few more luxuries and considerably less gun fights. For this price you will get an entire town all to yourself, enough to sleep over 40 guests.
Dunton Hot Springs was once visited by Butch Cassidy, and while it is not a ghost town of sorts, there are many cozy cabins available and these can also be rented individually.
6. Fregate Island, Seychelles = €14,000 a Night
One of the most expensive holiday locations in the world and the most expensive in the Seychelles, Fregate Island is a personal paradise that comes complete with 7 stunning beaches and a host of activities for visiting guests.
Unlike some of other entries on this list guests won’t get the entire island to themselves (although we’re sure it can be arranged) but rather they will be booked into one of the luxury resorts on the island.
5. Mustique Island, Caribbean = €20,000 a Night
One of the most expensive holidays in the world is on the island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. It has attracted countless celebs over the years and provides complete seclusion in addition to a wealth of activities.
4. Misha Cay, Bahamas = €30,000 a Night
This island is David Copperfield’s personal retreat and the magician is said to have modelled it on the luxury Aman resorts, adding a fair share of Houdini memorabilia in the process. You can even play pool on a table once owned by the escape artist.
This secluded island paradise is big enough for 12 guests and provides some of the most stunning views in the Bahamas.
3. Necker Island, British Virgin Islands = €50,000 a Night
Located on a private island owned by Sir Richard Branson, this holiday hotspot comes with 74-acres of land, a beautiful white beach, a guest house with 9 bedrooms, and a team of dozens to help make sure your holiday is one to remember.
You can go for a swim in the beautiful blue waters amongst the coral reef, enjoy relaxing spa treatments in the Bali houses, or try your hand at some water sports.
It’ll give you a taste of life as a millionaire, but at over €50,000 a night, you probably need to be a millionaire just to stay here.
2. Calivigny Island, Grenada = €90,000 a Night
With views of the Atlantic and Caribbean and some of the most luxurious cabins in the Americas, this island is a hotspot for the super-rich seeking something unique. It can accommodate more than 90 guests and will cost around €90,000 a night to book the entire island, which includes two mansions and three cottages.
1. Laucala Island, Fiji = €100,000 a Night
Laucala Island is one of the many small islands that make up the nation of Fiji, but it’s an island like no other and if you have a few million going spare you could rent it for several weeks. The price has been quoted as being anywhere from €50,000 to €100,000 a night, but our research suggests the higher figure is closer to the truth.
You can rent this island for over 70 guests—perfect for a luxury wedding or other big event. Not only is it ideally located and absolutely beautiful, but it’s also eco-friendly. They don’t import any meats, cheeses or mineral water and get most of what they need from the island.
