Nowadays, it’s the trend to see how long we can travel for as little money as possible. Traveling on $50 a day is practically the new black. Finding hostels for the price of drinks at bar gives you bragging-rights. However, there will always be travelers that are quite the opposite of the budget traveler. This infographic sums up 11 hotel luxuries that are shocking and unbelievable. These treats are popping up in the hotels of the future. For anyone with cash to spend, these perks are a huge part of the vacation experience. Just when you thought a virtual-reality vacation seemed outlandish (or, sort of high-tech and awesome too), these perks will seem unbelievable.
When guests are spending over $5,000 a night in New Orleans or $19,000 a week in the Four Seasons Beverly Hills suite, they are offered services like a sunshine butler, pet psychic, or to arrive by paraglide. Yes, that was not a typo. Arrive by paraglide in Zighy Bay, Oman.
In Maldives, if manta rays are spotted, you get a phone call and a private speedboat to head out on the water. No need to wait for nature. You’ll get a call when nature comes to you. There’s even a “kidnapping” service in Fiji where you will be randomly taken away by the staff to a secret waterfall and romantic picnic. Another perk at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans includes a hangover concierge which offers water, snacks, massages, or whatever you need to recover from your late night of drinking. Whoever came up with that one is a genius.
Check out the rest of these luxuries in this infographic produced by Hotels4u, a hotel search website for cheap hotels and discounts. Can they give a discount for these vacation perks please?
