But there are some resorts and hotels that go so far with a certain concept that there's no other word to describe it.

Like this amazing, $50,000 a night underwater hotel suite in Maldives that'll have you waking up to sharks and all sorts of ocean life swimming above you.

And no, I'm not exaggerating, this is what the "ceiling" of the room looks like.

The dining area is decked out in a similar, 30,000 Leagues Under the Sea fashion. Imagine gazing up at that while you much on your spinach and goat cheese omelette and fruit cup that has way too much honeydew.

Those who book the $50k dream suite are flown to their own private seaplane dock and are picked up in a private speedboat that comes with the room for as long as you're staying there.

You also get beach real estate that's reserved for you so you don't have to bother yourself with seeing other guests if you don't want to. Four butlers who live in nearby bungalow will beckon to your every whim 24/7. Not to mention a personal chef, a fitness trainer, and 90 minutes of spa treatments every day.

The place is fairly heavily fortified, too: it's made out of acrylic, concrete, and steel. It's got enough room for 9 guests to sleep in addition to a butler's quarters, a room for your private security, and a gym.

Now despite the fact that this is clearly a bargain at $50,000 a night, some peasants on the internet are complaining about the price.

While others were more appreciative of the insane vision it took to come up with something so wonderful.

Hotel Kakslauttanen, Lapland, Finland offers up glass and snow igloos guests can enjoy to gaze at the northern lights without ever having to get out of bed.

If safari animals are your thing then you can have breakfast with Giraffes at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya. It has a 12-acre lawn near a sanctuary for the long-necked animals, so they're constantly coming down to the 10-room boutique hotel to say what's up and see what guests are munching on.

And this last one is extreme just for the extreme opulence of it: the Burj Al-Arab Royal Suite comes with its own cinema room, a rotating bed, a 24-carat-Gold iPad, both an upstairs and downstairs private bar, a small army of butlers who are at your beck and call, 24/7, and 17 different types of pillows to choose from for when you finally calm down from how awesome the room is. At $24,000 a night, it better be epic, and it is.

So, when you hit the lottery or finally marry into that super rich family, which one of these vacation spots are you hitting up first?
