If you are looking for a truly decadent experience for your next holiday, why not learn from the masters of comfort and style -the rich and famous. Celebrities and millionaires definitely do not put up with lost bookings, maids that enter without knocking, less-than-spotless suites - or anything less than the best! You deserve the same perks and benefits that these people get -so why not check out our guide to luxury hotels of the rich and famous in Asia.
The Park Hyatt Tokyo
Lost in Translation was a hit in 2006 for Bill Murray, Scarlett Johanssen and Giovani Ribisi. Most of the action in the movie took place in the hotel -the Park Hyatt in Tokyo. Tokyo lights up like a fairyland at night time, and the Park Hyatt is one of the best ways to take in the view in luxury for your next Asian holiday. You'll find striking exotic colors, an ethereal atmosphere, space, clean lines and ultimate opulence at the Park Hyatt Tokyo.
Umaid Bhawan Palace, Rajasthan, India
To feel like a true priness or prince, you must stay in a palace -the Umid Bhawan Palace gives you the opportunity to do just that. Many celebrities have taken advantage of the opportunity to experience the pampering and preening of the Umid Bhawan Palace on their Asian luxury holidays, including Kate Moss, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Hurley, Elton John, and Arun Nayar. The palace took 15 years to construct, and has 347 rooms. Renting these out as hotel suites is one of the most sensible ways to ensure they are maintained properly. The royal family of Jodhpur resides here also -so if you are looking a royal soulmate, the Umaid Bhawan Palace is the place to stay in Asia!
Shangri-La, Beijing, China
One of the original locations of the world-famous Shangri-La chain, this hotel in Beijing is frequented by Sean Penn and Al Pacino. If you fancy yourself pitching your script to these acclaimed producers and actors, or would just like the chance to show Sean what he's missing out on, do it at Shangri-La, Beijing!
Hyatt on the Bund, China
As a daughter of a hotel magnate, Paris Hilton would never stay in anything less than the finest luxury. So you can imagine that the Hyatt on the Bund is one of the most luxurious hotels in Asia. Paris enjoys magical views of the Bund and Shanghai from this hotel, as well as the space and sophistication that the Hyatt offers.
Le Meridien Pune
The beautiful facade of Le Meridien Pune in India glows like a welcoming fireplace for you to come home to at the end of a tiring day of exploration and adventure in India. Travelling through India and Asia can be a luxurious experience, as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie discovered at Le Meridien Pune. It is situated in close proximity to many of India's natural wonders, as well as some of the country's most vibrant and exciting festivals and events. If you'd like to imagine yourself as Mrs Brad Pitt ... or even Mr. Angelina Jolie, try Le Meridien Pune!
The Grand Hyatt in Tokyo
Another celebrity favorite, the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo combines the golden red and darkly exotic beauty of Japan with sparkling luxury, for your next Asian holiday. The Harry Potter crew has been sighted here, on their promotional touring -Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint all stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo.
Le Meridien Bora Bora
If tropical beaches and white sandy beauty is more your style, you might want to stay at the same hotel as Sharon Stone in French Polynesia -Le Meridien Bora Bora. The hotel features beautiful traditional-style huts perched over a sparkling blue lagoon -but there is nothing traditional or basic about the accommodations inside the huts. There is a restaurant with a different theme of cuisine every night of the week, all delectably executed, as well as a turtle sanctuary, trying to help preserve the beauty of the natural environment in Bora Bora. Your Basic Instincts for luxury hotels will lead you to Le Meridien Bora Bora -just like Sharon Stone.
