While most travelers are content with basic sources of home-away-from-home indulgence, some others simply require more from their vacations. For these individuals, well-equipped rooms, sumptuous cuisines, and spacious infinity pools, do not quite cut it. And they are willing to shell out extra dollars to get their desired topnotch travel experience.
If you are one of these globetrotters whose standards for luxury fall beyond the regular requirements, here are some hotel amenities, features, and services which might catch your fancy.
1. All-Glass Undersea Rooms and Restaurant
If a visit to the majestic Maldives is not enough to spell luxury, surely, staying at the Hilton Underwater Suite and dining in the hotel’s undersea restaurant snugly fit the bill. According to the creators of this novel idea, Hilton’s undersea amenities are among the latest and most cutting edge innovations in hotel infrastructure, and in the hospitality industry in general.
Most definitely, to be surrounded by ocean creatures in lieu of paintings or wall decors is worth all the money you will have to dish out in order to experience this one-of-a-kind indulgence.

Apparently, there are travelers who are just as inclined to olfactory delights as they are to visual and gustatory treats. This is exactly the market to which Rosewood Hotels caters. The hotel chain’s franchises in Saudi Arabia and North America all have the so-called professional Fragrance Butler, whose sole duty is to deliver a fragrance menu to guests who are scintillated by scents.
The menu includes some of the worlds’ most expensive designer fragrances such as Channel No.5, Daisy Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Hermes Terre d’Hermes, Bulgari Black, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, and Bulgari Pour Homme, among others.

4. On-Call Mixologist

Upon request for The Surrey Hotel’s resident mixologist, guests can then enjoy a cart-full of cocktails comprised of the usual suspects namely Moscow Mule, Dark & Stormy, and Brown Derby, to name a few. Lessons and instructions regarding the secrets of the alcohol mixing trade are also given to guests so as they can imitate the concoctions whenever they fell the necessary.
