For many people, a vacation is a simple excuse to take time away from work, relax a little bit and go somewhere they’ve never been before. But for the rich it’s practically a pastime. When money is no object, the super rich tend to go for locations that are off the beaten path, exclusive and full of unspoiled beauty. And these qualities don’t come cheap: the ultra wealthy tend to pay well over 1000 dollars a night – and upwards of 83,000 dollars a night – for the privilege.
That’s more than the average person makes in a year, and unless you’re the lucky winner of a Mega Millions jackpot from LottosOnline.com it’s probably prohibitively expensive. Nevertheless, it’s nice to daydream about these sorts of thing, so sit back, relax and check out the top five vacation spots that attract the richest of the rich.
You’ve probably heard of this Pacific Island (perhaps because it lends its name to a popular water brand!), but what you might not have heard is how exclusive it can be. Turtle Island, in particular, is so exclusive that it only allows 28 guests at a time, so you can imagine the price tag it comes with. Oprah Winfrey has been known to frequent the island, dropping a little bit of her massive fortune.
Most of California can be a bit pricey, but Laguna Beach takes it to another level. Famed for its palm fringed promenades and striking ocean views, this California resort city has become something of a go-to destination for movie stars in nearby Hollywood. There is, of course, a more modestly priced way to enjoy Laguna Beach, as evidenced by the many surfers that make the pilgrimage here, but to really get the most out of this town, you have to shell out the big bucks.
Rich people don’t just head to the beach. St. Moritz, a resort town in the Swiss Alps, has been a European luxury destination for over 100 years, playing host to nobility and celebrities alike. You can ski its many mountains, or just take in the breathtaking panorama from one of the chalets, over a dinner of truffles, foiegras and Champagne. The choice is your, provided you come with a full wallet.
This small Caribbean Island – whose full name is Saint Barthelemy – is one of the more well known destinations for the ultra wealthy. It’s difficult to get a flight in, making this island all the more exclusive, and you can see yachts circling the island most days. The ultra rich come here for the unspoiled beauty, the relative seclusion and the food, which is typically flown in from France.
The richest of the rich come to Lake Como, situated in the Lomardy region of Italy. The weather is mild, the culture is abundant and, if you go on a good day, you’ll see George Clooney taking a dip in the water, from his 10 million dollar mansion there.
Sure, you might not be able to afford these destinations now, but who knows… One day you might win the Powerball jackpot and find yourself rubbing elbows with the global elite. Until that day comes, though, it’s nice to dream!
