The most expensive hotel in the world is located in Utah, according to a recent survey from Luxury-Hotels.com.
Amangiri Hotel, Canyon Point, Utah
The survey compared luxury hotels around the globe based on their average rates for a standard double room. The summer time period of June to August 2015 served as the basis of comparison.
In coming up with the rankings, the survey interpreted the term “hotel” in a rather narrow sense. More specifically, it considered only such properties having at least 15 rooms located in a single building. This definition excludes villas, bungalows or safari camps, which are sometimes considered hotels as well by other standards of the term.
At an average nightly rate of $1889 for the least expensive double room, the Amangiri hotel, located in Canyon Point, Southern Utah, tops the ranking. Coming in second most expensive is the Hotel Cala di Volpe, located in Sardinia, Italy, with an average overnight price of $1789.
Explora Rapa Nui, situated on Chile’s Easter Island, rounds out the Top 3 with an average price tag of $1733 per night. The USA's second most expensive hotel is the Montage Kapalua Bay located in Maui, Hawaii. It ranks fifth most expensive in the world with an average rate of $1554 per night for the most affordable double room this summer.
