This newly-opened dream destination made headlines recently not just for its pristine white beaches and top-tier amenities and services, but also for its jaw-dropping price tag. A night’s stay in this 15-acre paradise will set you back to at least USD100,000 a night, which easily makes it the world’s most expensive resort to date.
Banwa Private Island guarantees guests an unforgettable stay in one of their six beachfront villas—all of which include a private infinity pool, a Jacuzzi, and a team of chefs, who cook with ingredients sourced directly from an onsite organic farm and fish caught in the surrounding Sulu Sea. Excursions in the resort highlight the island’s lush flora and fascinating fauna—they even have an in-house wildlife expert! You can also try scuba diving, kayaking, and jet skiing. Or if you just want a healing holiday, join a yoga class or rejuvenate your senses using your unlimited access to various spa treatments.
Situated in the archipelago of Palawan, this remote island resort can only be reached by helicopter or seaplane from Manila. Prices of transfers to and from the island start at USD990 per way.
