WOULD you be surprised to know that one-quarter of the world’s most luxurious and expensive hotel and resort suites are in the Asia Pacific?

It shouldn’t be too surprising, given that the Asia Pacific grows some of the most fantastic flora and fauna in the world, blanketing natural landscapes in emerald forests, and covering vast expanses in shimmery turquoise waters.

Who wouldn’t be enticed by that?

Aside from the stunning natural beauty packed into the Asia Pacific, each nation is also steeped in rich history and vibrant, diversified cultures, not to mention the culinary delights on offer.

From adventures to relaxation and food tours to yoga retreats, the Asia Pacific has it all and it’s waiting for curious minds to discover its nations.

But what’s a once-in-a-lifetime trip without a beautiful place to stay?

Well, you needn’t worry about this in the Asia Pacific as those with a deep love for hospitality have built up an array of magnificent hotels and resorts which add luxury to an already unforgettable vacation. 

While there are thousands of hotels, motels, Airbnbs, serviced apartments, and couches for travelers to stay in on their trips around the Asia Pacific, there are a few accommodation options that truly win the hotel game, but they come with a stonking price tag.

There’s a whole other level to luxury that many of us mere mortals never get to experience, from the private islands in the Maldives to the penthouse suites of Tokyo that make guests feel like a god.

Thankfully, Elite Traveler has compiled a list of the world’s most luxurious hotel suites for the inquisitive people among us who may not be able to stay in the fanciest hotels but still want to have a peek at them.
