Oh, how the other half live! Those for whom money is no object and who can set off and travel the world and the seven seas without checking out the price tag first. They don’t need to worry about budget airlines cancelling their flights – though I suppose golden escalators breaking down might be a concern. Wondering how the way you travel could change after you win the Euromillions Lottery? Well, here are a few suggestions…
You could stay at the most expensive hotels in the world
You could head on over to Geneva in Switzerland for a night or two at the Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson. Their website entices you to “Succumb to the ultimate luxury of our Royal Penthouse Floor, stretching on the entire 8th floor, namely 1’680 sqm. Renowned as one of the biggest Suite in the World, the Royal Penthouse Suite has even been awarded “World’s Leading Hotel Suite” at the World Travel Awards 2014, equivalent to the Oscars but for tourism.”
See Mont Blanc from the Royal Terrace, soak in a jacuzzi or tinkle the ivories on the Steinway grand piano. The suite sleeps 12 people in 12 bedrooms and also has 12 marble bathrooms, and at around 60,000 Swiss Francs a night (approximately £48,000), it’s a mere bargain break for the family.
You could take the ultimate road trip
You could take the best road trip ever in the elemment Palazzo mobile home by Austrian firm Marchi Mobile. I mean, just look at this beast. Measuring a generous 45 feet in length, this house on wheels has just about everything you need to live life on the road including a fully equipped kitchen, and a master bedroom complete with the all-important rainfall shower.
And not only does the elemment Palazzo have a slide-out room but for those days that you’re fed up of being cooped up inside such luxury, you can take it outside. Yep, it even has a pop-up sky deck complete with lights, bar and under-floor heating.
The price tag? Well, it starts from a very reasonable $3,000,000. Measly, I think.
Or you could just sail away
Designed by UK luxury designer Stuart Hughes, this 100-foot vesseltook over 3 years to complete. Over 100,000kg of solid gold and platinum was used to assemble it, used from the base and coating the vessel throughout.
The kids are sure to love the statue made from genuine Tyrannosaurus Rex bones, not to mention the 68 kg 24-carat gold Aquavista Panoramic Wall Aquarium which graces the master suite. Time for mum and dad to chill? No worries. On board is a liquor bottle featuring an extremely rare 18.5 carat diamond worth $45 million alone, and you can check your bank balance on the iPhone wrapped in 500 cut diamonds. If the look bores you, don’t worry. There are two interchangeable diamonds fitted over the “home button so just switch them up as you see fit.
Want it? It was originally purchased by an anonymous Malaysian businessman for a whopping $4.5 billion dollars but if you can track him down, you might be able to make him an offer on the second-hand purchase.
