The world’s first-ever seven-star hotel can be found in Dubai, and it’s none other than the Burj Al Arab. The luxury hotel holds 28 double-storey floors which accommodate 202 bedroom suites. Its Royal Suite is billed at 24,000 USD per night and is listed at number 12 on the world’s 15 most expensive hotel suites compiled by CNN Go back in 2012. The Burj Al Arab has a 24/7 butler service, shuttle service with Rolls-Royces, a helicopter, as well as a private beach.
