Super rich and nowhere to go? The Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi has released the world’s most expensive holiday package, “The National” reports. For just $1 million (Dh3.67 million) a week, guests can enjoy a week long ultra luxurious holiday in ultra luxurious surroundings.
The $145,000-a-day package includes the hotel’s finest suite, first-class air tickets, a full-time Maybach luxury saloon with driver, daily spa treatments, day trips by private jet to Iran to witness the creation of a unique Persian carpet, to Jordan for a spa treatment with Dead Sea mud and to Bahrain for a deep-sea pearl dive. The pearl will be set in a custom-made piece of jewellery.
“The important thing to remember is that the trip is adaptable. If a person doesn’t want to go to Bahrain, or would rather ski for example, we’ll arrange a trip to Beirut or Iran,” Sehry Fassy, the director of marketing at the Emirates Palace said.
The guests will receive gifts worth more than $100,000 – including a pearl necklace for her and a gun from the English gunsmith Holland & Holland for him. But “No one has bought it yet. We’re waiting for the lucky winner,” he said
“Nothing surprises me any more at all in this market,” he said. “I’m surprised that this is in Abu Dhabi and not in Dubai. That’s where the publicity and the headlines are hit with these ridiculous announcements.”
“It seems ridiculously expensive. Anyone who would do it would be doing it for the publicity,” he said, adding that the quest to be bigger, better and more expensive could get ridiculous. “But knowing the Gulf, the money is there and there’s someone who will want to do it.”
The offer is being made as an attempt to earn the hotel a slot in the Guinness Book of World Records, and part of the proceeds will be donated to charities in the U.A.E., the paper reports
