Utah has just earned the distinction of having the most expensive hotel in the world. A recent survey from Luxury-Hotels.com came to this conclusion after comparing the rates of luxury hotels around the globe. The average price tag for a standard double room during the peak summer travel period of June through August 2015 served as the basis of comparison.
The Amangiri hotel in Canyon Point, Southern Utah (pictured above) took the top spot. An average overnight price tag of $1889 for the least expensive double room easily landed it in the survey’s number one spot. Coming in just behind in the number two spot was the Hotel Cala di Volpe in Sardinia, Italy. This establishment’s average nightly rate of $1789 positioned it in second place.
Rounding out the Top 3 was the Explora Rapa Nui on the Easter Island of Chile, with an average rate of $1733 per night. The United States landed another luxury hotel in the Top 5, with Maui’s Montage Kapalua Bay ranking number five on the global survey. An average overnight rate of $1554 for the most affordable double room secured it as the world’s fifth most expensive hotel this summer.
Following are the 20 most expensive hotels in the world. The rates listed are based on the average price for a standard double room for the summer time period spanning June through August 2015.
About the Methodology
The survey was conducted in May 2015. For all luxury hotels, the lowest available price, on average, a couple will have to spend to stay at the respective resorts was established for the time period spanning June through August 2015. Only such properties having at least 15 rooms located in a single building were considered. The rates were taken from either the respective hotels’ websites or the leading hotel-booking sites. In all cases, the lowest available price was used in tabulating the results.
