Dare to dream? Some people go on vacation not only to escape the everyday, but to have the most lavish experiences possible. With that in mind our friends at Siren Communications have rounded up six of the most luxurious options for travellers, specifically when it comes to accommodation. From ten-room suites to private villas, here is the list of the best of the best:
Why it’s spectacular: The 10-room Bridge Suite, one of the most expensive in the world at $25,000 per night, is located in the ocean-themed Atlantis, Paradise Island resort. The suite is suspended between the Royal Towers and its 1,250 square-foot living area comes complete with twin entertainment centres and a grand piano.
The Goods: A picture-perfect 360 degree view of the hotel’s serene surroundings from the 800-square-foot balcony. With seven permanent staff on hand for guests of the suite (who enter and exit via their own private entrance), every need will be taken care of.

Why it’s spectacular: The aptly named Royal Suite spans across 4,700 square-feet of the Ritz-Carlton Montreal. Guests can enter the 12-room suite through the expansive, art-filled foyer. Guests will not want to leave the comfort of the king-sized bed, spacious sitting area or warmth from the bedroom’s in-room fireplace. Guests can indulge in a freshly prepared meal in the 12 person dining room complete with a boarding butler’s pantry for custom, personalized service. The bathrooms are truly remarkable with designer toilets, 19-inch flat screen televisions and a standalone soaker tub with floor and towel heaters.
The Goods: Returning guests will have their room thermostats set to the temperature they prefer as they check in. For those staying in the Royal Suite with a security guard, the suite even has a private security office for round the clock peace of mind.

Why it’s spectacular: The Villa Cortez is the only private villa at the stunning One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico. The private villa pool offers guests a secluded sanctuary, or they can wander over to the resort’s infinity pool which overlooks the sparkling Sea of Cortez.
The Goods: This spacious suite has four en-suite bedrooms, a 12-person private screening theatre, an interior and exterior kitchen, fire-pit, outdoor rain shower and an in-home spa area – totalling 8,500 interior square feet and 2,000 square-feet of private outdoor living space.
