Royal Penthouse Suite, Hotel President Wilson, Geneva

($69,800/night)
With 1800 square meters to indulge your space-loving persona and proudly advertised as the most luxurious suite in the world, the Royal Penthouse Suite has it all: the majestic view (through bullet-proof glass) of Lake Geneva from the top of the world (well, from the top floor), the private elevator to avoid those awkward moments of making eye contact with strangers, and of course, the best that entertainment has to offer including a Steinway grand piano that you may or may not know how to play, and the 103-inch Bang & Olufson television that can rise, turn and tilt on its own stand at a touch of a button.

The Presidential Suite, The Raj Palace Hotel, Jaipur, India

($45,000/night)
To sleep, to eat, and to swim in the same place as the former Maharaja once did in this suite has its own particular appeals, as it gives you a taste of how Indian royalty once lived. No expense is spared, from the four floors; to the gold leafed painted walls; to the private museum of India’s past; to the spa, library and bar on the fourth floor, once used as the “pleasure pavilion.”

Ty Warner Penthouse Suite, Four Seasons Hotel, New York

($45,000/night)
When you yawned at the fact that it took seven years and 50 million dollars to build this luxury penthouse suite, your only remark was, what took them so long? But once you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever survived in New York City without this adequately furnished accommodation, which includes a panoramic view of one of the greatest cities in the world; art and refinement galore, including 18th century Japanese silk pillows, hand-lacquered walls, and Mexican sycamore wood; and at your beckoning 24 hours a day, your own butler and chauffer.
