Wish you were here (in your dreams!): From gin palaces to private islands... drool over the world's seven most extravagant holidays 

Read more:

From the most palatial of gin palaces to the world's poshest B&B where a week's stay won't leave you any change from £2.2million - these are the ultimate holiday destinations for the world's mega-rich and super famous.

So if you happen to have a spare few million burning a hole in your pocket, why not check in to the ultimate ski chalet or rent your own private Caribbean island? 

Of course you can rest assured that every whim you can think of, and many you can't, will be well and truly catered for.

The gin palace on steroids - £441,000

There are gin palaces and then there’s a 242ft yacht called RV Pegaso, which comes with a submarine that can accommodate five people.

You can explore the bottom of the ocean around the Caribbean while someone tops up your glass of Dom Perignon. Closer to the surface, a flunkie will film you swimming with manta rays and introducing yourself to friendly sharks. 

Back on board there’s a recompression chamber and toys galore (a 32ft waterslide, trampoline, outdoor gym, Jacuzzi) and, of course, a heliport at the stern. You might want to ask for a Flyboard — a 30ft power hose, pictured right, that lets you fly through the air.  With practice, you can do aerobatic spins and twists. The yacht sleeps 12 and there’s a lift up to the oak and walnut-panelled penthouse suite.  RV stands for ‘research vessel’ but you don’t need to be a marine scientist to appreciate this sort of life on the ocean wave — just very rich. 

Charter Pegaso from £441,000

Private paradise island - £300,000

Calvigny Island The Cohens, a French family of estimable means, bought 50-acre Calivigny Island, off the south coast of Grenada in 2000 and spent more than £100 million developing it. Only in the past couple of years has the private island been available for rent.

It can accommodate 50 people, but if you want just the main house, it sleeps 20 and costs £300,000 a week, so double that for the whole confection. You’ll find marble bathrooms, Persian rugs, Egyptian cotton, and furniture by the classy Dominican designer Oscar de la Renta. There are Italian, French and Granadian menus each night, six sandy beaches — one for each day of your stay — and a plethora of water sports. For New Year, a band will come over from the mainland and the fireworks should be good, too.

A week’s stay on Calivigny will set you back around £300,000,

The world's poshest B&B - £2.2million

The world's poshest B&B Called the King of the Castle holiday, this tour of Maharaja palaces in India’s Rajasthan includes three nights in three different hotels. You can either have them all to yourself or invite 120 or so friends. Whatever you choose, the price is the same: £2,160,000. Breakfast is included but everything else, including private jet travel between locations, is extra.

You start at the Lake Palace in Udaipur (built in 1743 by a philandering prince in defiance of his father and where the James Bond film Octopussy was shot) then move to Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, where Liz Hurley married the Indian textile heir Arun Nayar in 2007. Last stop is Rambagh Palace, once home to the Maharaja of Jaipur and set in nearly 50 acres of gardens.

The model Kate Moss and her chums checked in two years ago for the birthday bash of Naomi Campbell’s then boyfriend Vladimir Doronin — but don’t let that put you off.

Ampersand Travel (020 7819 9770, from £2,160,000 B&B from October-April.

The eco-millionaire's retreat - £1.1million

The eco-millionaire's retreat
Laucala Island in Fiji will do nicely if you want privacy — although there’s room for 60 of your nearest and dearest if you use all 25 villas. This six-square-mile South Pacific island is owned by Red Bull drinks magnate Dietrich Mateschitz (it formerly belonged to big bucks American Malcolm Forbes) and is hot on self-sustainability.

Accessed only by private plane (no, not exactly the greenest of options!), Laucala rears its own livestock, grows tons of fruit and veg, makes its own honey and even bottles its own mineral water. It makes Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island look unsophisticated. Villas have thatched roofs made from sago palms and coconut husk (all come with their own pools of course).

If you find your guests tiresome, there are five restaurants and enough space to get in touch with your inner ‘I want to be alone’ Greta Garbo. Take the whole island for a week and you’re looking at spending more than  £1 million — but it is all-inclusive.

Scott Dunn (020 8682 5099, from £1,092,000, including flights from the UK.
