When money is no object, the entire world becomes a travel destination. There are endless reasons to start researching a bucket list trip, writes the “Travel and Leisure” periodical. The periodical presents these ultra-luxurious trips that can set travelers back anywhere from $1,100 to $195,000 per night — but the destinations and accommodations are jaw-dropping, and sure to offer an unforgettable experience.
North Island in Seychelles
Vacation like George and Amal Clooney at this private island resort. There are only 11 villas, ensuring that it’s possible to get far, far away from the rest of the world. The Villa North Island is the most exclusive at the resort, available at about $11,000 per night. Within the villa’s 8,000 square feet there’s a series of wooden decks, a coconut grove, and even a private entrance to a secluded beach. Rumors are spread that Prince William and Kate Middleton honeymooned here.
Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge in Rwanda
The newly opened Bisate Lodge sits directly next to Rwanda’s Volcano National Park. The secluded location only has six villas, all designed to resemble the palaces of traditional Rwandan monarchs, featuring a central fireplace and decks overlooking the nearby volcanoes.

The entire trip lasts less than 24 hours but will set you back $195,000.
