Luxury Hotels Fit for a Prince (with Old World Charm)

Let's continue our tour of hotels and resorts that are fit for royalty. With their old world charm, any prince or sheikh would feel perfectly at home at these luxury hotels.

Paris:

  • The Ritz
    Princess Diana dined at the Ritz the night she died. At the Ritz your team will be pampered. Afternoon tea is served daily. If you make arrangements at least one day in advance, they will prepare profiteroles au chocolat for you. I did it once and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The Ritz is in the same square where Chopin had his last apartment.
  • Le Bristol

Italy:

  • Borgo Santo Pietro
    This 13th-century Tuscany estate, has been transformed into a luxury retreat. The fortified town with its perimeter wall and the Borgo gate were built in 1113. Sites include the Doria Castle, the church of San Lorenzo

Dubai, UAE

  • Burj Al Arab
    At the world's only 7 Star hotel, some of the other guests will definitely be from royal families.
  • Madinat Jumeirah
    The ruler of Dubai has a summer villa on property.

Abu Dhabi, UAE

  • Emirates Palace
    The first time I went there, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi was walking through the lobby and speaking on a cell phone.

Oman:

  • Al Bustan Palace
  • Al Husn (The Castle) at Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa
    When a Middle Eastern Sheikh was in the party for an executive retreat that I organized and facilitated, this is where I arranged for him to stay.

Japan:

  • RIHGA Royal Hotel Group
    Members of the Japanese Imperial family, heads of state and royalty from every corner of the globe are regular guests at the 10 hotels throughout Japan. This hotel group definitely deserves support. In the aftermath of the recent earthquakes and tsunamis, they waived all cancellations fees.

Malaysia:
