Space hotels might be off the cards just now but the world’s most expensive hotel room could be the next best thing.
Submerged in the clear blue depths watching the fish go by in a private submarine haven will feel completely out of this world.
In fact, this underwater paradise costing $292,000 per night is one of the most opulent hotel suites on earth.
To put that in context, that’s more than the new BMW XM – most powerful and expensive SUV on the market, with a starting price of $159,995.
So is it worth it? Judge for yourself.
While explorative submarines have had a bad rep in 2023 – this is an entirely different experience.
The world’s most expensive hotel room and one of the most romantic first launched on February 14, 2014.
Don’t even look for a postcode, while it’s recommended to board Lover’s Deep Submarine in St. Lucia, you can be picked up from anywhere.
Inside the vessel’s open-plan interior, you’ll find a cosy double bed, mini bar and two-person shower and bathroom.
The bottom-level lounge area has a cosy and comfortable lounge with glass walls for panoramic views of the ocean beyond.
Once aboard, you’ll enjoy fully-catered, five-star service at-you-beck-and-call with a captain, chef and butler ensuring your stay is smooth sailing.
For the benefit of couples celebrating honeymooners and anniversaries, staff stay in separate, soundproof quarters far from the guest quarters to preserve your privacy.
There’s a phone to contact them when you need assistance.
But it’s what’s outside the submarine’s windows that make it worthy of its title of world’s most expensive hotel room.
While aquariums aren’t so unusual in hotel rooms on land, the Lover’s Deep Submarine takes this experience to the next level.
Depending on the location it’s moored you can see incomparable views from shipwrecks to coral and fascinating sea life amidst endless blue.
Opt for the coastal reef off the coast of St. Lucia in the West Indies in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the border with the Atlantic Ocean.
The spot is best known for its reef-diving sites, volcanic beaches, and luxury resorts.
Alternatively you can ponder on the haunting beauty of a sunken battleship in the Red Sea.
Lucky honeymooners will enjoy a complimentary gourmet aphrodisiac tasting menu.
The romantic feast includes oysters and Russian caviar followed by chocolate fondant infused with pomegranate.
Other romantic touches include rose petals strewn across the bed and the dulcet tones of Barry White to make your soundtrack as deep as your hotel room.
Standard transfer to the submarine is via speedboat but customers can also wish to have a helicopter landing if they’d prefer.
Joining the “mile-low club” is a truly once-in-a-lifetime underwater experience.
