Opulence knows no limits in the Middle East, and the Ritz-Carlton spared no expense when it came to debuting its Royal Villa at the Ritz-Carlton Sharq Village and Spa in Doha. This "presidential palace" tops our list as the one of most divine examples of luxury living. At 22,590 square feet, the Royal Villa includes (among many amenities) an outdoor terrace, private pool (shown in the photo), private elevator, dining room that seats 12, kitchen, study, private spa room, six bedrooms (two one-bedroom suites and two two-bedroom suites) and four bathrooms. You'll sleep on 1050-thread count down bed linens under a goose down duvet, and enjoy private butler service, a personal chef, fitness trainer, and private access to the beach during your stay.
