MANILA – The world’s most exclusive hotel suite is found in Geneva, Switzerland, according to a list compiled by ultra high net worth intelligence and prospecting firm Wealth-X.
Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson topped Wealth-X’s top 10 list of the world’s most exclusive hotel suite with an average price of $67,000 (P3,015,000) per night.
The 1,800-square meter Royal Penthouse Suite is also known for being the world’s “largest and most luxurious” suite with 12 luxury rooms, 12 marble bathrooms, and a private terrace.
The suite also features a panoramic view of Lake Geneva and a mountain backdrop.
It also comes with a Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-103 flat-screen TV and home theater, a Steinway grand piano, a billiards table and a private gym.
The hotel’s website describes the suite as one that “stands for pure luxury with maximum security, from bulletproof glass to a private lift to take guests directly to their majestic living quarters.”
Placing second on the list is the $41,000 (P1,845,000) per night Ty Warner Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City.
The 400-square-meter suite is New York City’s highest hotel suite that offers 360-degree views.
