The world’s most expensive resort is now open for business. As expected, the resort is simply jaw-dropping. But so is its cost per night that is a whopping $100,000 (£76,800).
Built on Banwa Private Island, the price tag is sure eye-wateringly hefty but it does secure guests the entire island.
Nestled in the Palawan archipelago in the Philippines, this island is regarded as ‘the last ecological frontier’, according to the resort’s website. In other words, it’s pretty much 15 acres of paradise on earth.
According to the resort website, it’s ‘a private world where time stands still’ and where temperatures rarely dip below 30C.
There are six villas each boasting a private infinity pool, a hot tub deck at the water’s edge and floor-to-ceiling windows.
There’s a restaurant that serves food. All the food is freshly grown locally or freshly caught from the Sulu Sea. There is also a spa, where guests can enjoy an unlimited number of treatments at no extra cost.
Activity-wise, the guests have a lot of choices – snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing, yoga, catamaran sailing, and tennis.
There’s intriguing wildlife to investigate, too – including tabon birds and Hawksbill sea turtles. There’s also an on-site animal expert.
The only way of reaching the island is by helicopter or seaplane from Manila and it costs $11,580 (£8,900) for a five-passenger helicopter and $990 (£760) per way for a nine-passenger seaplane round-trip.
So, in short, this private island experience is open to only the very richest people.
But there is a middle way. The villas accommodate 48 people, so if you can manage to gather 48 people and split the cost it works out at $2,083 (£1,600) each per night though there is also a minimum stay of three or five nights.
