This term is so broad that it has different meaning for every person.
Some consider glamour as luxurious while others opt for comfort rather than glory.
Since all that glitters is not actually gold, I believe that luxury refers to the degree of calmness and serenity offered by a place or thing.
Take hotels for instance, according to my perception, a luxurious hotel is such that it offers the best possible services to its visitors. In such hotel, the rooms offered to clients contain all the features which were required by that particular customer.
Bathrooms offered are clean and smell heavenly. The dining services as well as other facilities are top notch and could not have been any better. My God it sounds so tempting! In such atmosphere, visitors feel calm and do not object to paying extra since they enjoy each and every moment of their stay.
When an individual feels so peaceful in a hotel, each instant spent actually speaks of luxury on its own. Although I have visited many hotels at different places, there are only few which I remember and it is only due to the comfort offered by their staff. After detailed research, I have come up with a list of top 10 luxury hotels of the world which are surely a treat for visitors.
