Some people do seem to enjoy travelling around the world on a shoestring budget, but this is not an option that appeals to everyone. Staying in cheap hotels and surviving on a tight budget can take a good deal of fun out of the trip. Those people who work hard all year round may rightly feel that they are entitled to a bit of luxury when it comes time to go on holiday. There are plenty of great options for those individuals who wish to see the world in style including:

Marble is used extensively throughout the hotel, and the overall design is exquisite with large domes and majestic balconies. Emirates has its own 1.3 kilometre beach, and the hotel is surrounded by 85 hectares of landscaped gardens – there is also a marina.
