Lap of luxury | Luxury Asian Hotels

A Colleague recently paid more than $2000 to spend a single night at one of the great hotels of the world. It's a blow-your-mind amount, but he explained it somewhat sheepishly in much the same way explorers explain why they risk life and limb on an outlandish feat: because it was there. No longer young, he wanted to experience what it was like, just once.

Fortunately, you don't have to spend anywhere near that amount to live like a king, to be waited on by discreet butlers, to be collected at the airport by limousine and have your every whim indulged.

A clutch of fine hotels in Asia offer service and style that is so legendary that they need no introduction. They're simply known as The Pen, Raffles, Oriental, Shangri-La ... and they'd be delighted to welcome you and me, even if only for one unforgettable night.
