At 5 star hotels, luxury and service are a given but there should always, unquestionably, be something more. It may be difficult to put your finger on it, but it needs to go above and beyond expectations to make it worth you paying that little bit more.

Your 5 star experience should be about experientialism and not just materialism. That is because when you go 5 star, you want an experience that is memorable. This is where heritage can really take the 5 star experience that one step further, as you step back into the values of the past while enjoying all the benefits of contemporary hospitality.

Explore the following 5 star hotels for inspiration:
