8 Of The Most Expensive Vacation Destinations In The World

Going on a holiday vacation is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times of the year. Traveling, however, requires careful planning and taking a detailed look at your overall budget.

Do you want to find a luxurious location for your honeymoon? Do you have a specific budget for a personal vacation and would like to know more about your chosen destination? This list discusses some of the most expensive yet magnificent vacation destinations in the world that I would highly recommend visiting (as long as your budget permits it).

Musha Cay, the Bahamas

If you are looking for a luxurious yet adventurous trip, Musha Cay is the right spot for you. In order to travel there, you will have to rent an entire island (up to 24 guests allowed) for prices starting at $37,500, meals and drinks included. Musha Cay features spectacularly white beaches and high-standard resorts. It appears to be a quite a hot spot for meeting celebrities as well.

Cavigny Island, Grenada

A gorgeous private paradise that can accommodate up to 50 guests, Cavigny Island in Grenada is completely redeveloped and features a luxurious private resort with a personal chef, Persian rugs and designer furniture. Living in luxury on Cavigny Island will cost you around $500 thousand a week.

Oberlech, Austria

The exclusive Chalet N in Oberlech is the most expensive chalet in the world. It features pillows embroidered with your initials, bulletproof windows, titanium cutlery, a “mood-changing” swimming pool and Porsche-branded skis. Of course, these luxuries come with a price, starting at approximately $400 thousand per week.

Laucala Island, Fiji

Laucala is a gorgeous private island in the South Pacific. Despite it being extremely posh, the island has been renovated with eco-friendliness and sustainability in mind. For more than $1 million per week, you will enjoy – apart from crystal clear waters and amazing forests – homemade and locally sourced food, villas made with palms and coconuts and organic toiletries.

British Virgin Islands

This group of islands has been made particularly popular due to it being the location of Richard Branson’s private island (where villas are rented out to high-paying guests) and by their unique, colonial style. If you want to stay at specific British Virgin Islands, expect to pay at least $700 per night.

Fregate, Seychelles

This small island in the archipelago of the Seychelles has 17 luxurious villas and the resort observes an eco-friendly concept. Jacuzzis, private pools, adventurous activities, you name it: all starting at $3000 per day.

Paris, France

A trip to Paris can be as cheap or expensive as you want it to be. From a general affordability point of view, however, the French capital does not offer a great deal of cheap dining and accommodation options. Taking a holiday vacation there may result in you spending more on meals and drinks than you would in many other tourist destinations in Europe.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai’s fame as being one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world never seems to diminish. Tall skyscrapers, a multitude of restaurants and cuisines, huge shopping malls and its overall Arabian charm make Dubai ever so appealing. However, the city built by the oil industry has set very high standards in terms of costs. A night in Dubai’s most expensive hotel can cost you as much as $20 thousand.
