World's most expensive stay

 
Opened in November 2005, the Emirates Palace is the world’s only second seven-star hotel (The Burj Al Arab in Dubai is the other). It's also the most expensive ever built at US$3bn. However, the not so rich and famous (like me) receive a warm welcome to the various free cultural events regularly held here, such as: international film festivals, art exhibitions (Picasso was here recently) and classical concerts.

How much to stay for a night? And what do you get with seven stars? Free bathrobe?

Beautiful shot. It's nice that they hold cultural events for everyone.

US$3bn. Sheesh.

OMG! That's humongous! The beach looks fabulous from here. Did you ask how much a room costs?

Nice to know they hold free cultural events. Somehow, I can't see that happening in any of the hotels in Manila (none of which will even come close to the grandeur of this one!).

back in August, a week-long holiday package would set you back a $1 million. Google "$1m for 7 nights at Emirates Palace" to read the full story.
