Tag Results: Hotel Plaza Athenee
Every so often, an email will pass through our inboxes that makes us question, is this real? We have encountered romantic proposal packages, ‘round the world jaunts aboard private jets, hotel stays in swanky penthouses, and more, all worth your offspring’s college tuition. Or a second mortgage. We rounded up a few of the most expensive, over-the-top packages because sometimes it is fun to imagine, what if? Or maybe you have a thick stack of G’s burning a hole in your wallet waiting to be spent.
Take, for instance, this luxury cruise from Six Star Cruises: Coming in at a whopping 1 million pounds (that’s $1,581,000), this trip cruises around the world for 124 days (which breaks down to 8,000 pounds a day). For UK residents, the voyage begins with a helicopter transport from your home to a London airport (in transit, enjoy caviar worth 4,000 pounds per kilogram and sip on 1,000-year-old tea leaves) before you board a private charter to Los Angeles. The ship stops in 28 locales, including French Polynesia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Australia, and South Africa.
The kids-only Barbie rooms at Hotel Plaza Athénée are back, and this year the Paris hotel adds something for boys, too, with a Hot Wheels room. In partnership with Mattel, Plaza Athénée will transform three rooms this August: “Modern Princess” and “Fashion Icon” Barbie chambers feature doll-themed furniture and linens, while the new Hot Wheels room boasts a racecar bed, posters, and a Hot Wheels race track. While kids aged 3-16 stay in the themed rooms, parents book a connected room or suite. Rooms start at $2,467/night; continental breakfast for parents and kids is included.
