    We’ve grown up understanding that when it comes to stars, the more is the merrier, and the top 7 star hotels in the world only prove us right. They not only reflect timeless luxury and class, but but also boast their elegantly designed exteriors against expansive backdrops in a way that make them look even more breathtaking.

    But before everything else, let’s find out:

    What makes a hotel ‘7-star’?

    While there isn’t any international standard of ratings for describing what lets a hotel earn the stars for the kind of comfort, luxury, and hospitality it offers, some countries follow their own criteria, whereas a few others stick to a mutually standardized classification at regional level (But, some hotels prefer rating them themselves). With all of this, it’s only confusing to understand which hotel is really a 7 star?

    So here are a few reasons which we thought deem fit for an accommodation to be a 7 star:

    • It offers more luxury than what a 5 star hotel does at a much higher price
    • The comfort and amenities provided on the silver platter are world-class
    • Every customer’s experience is personalized and the interests, likes & dislikes are taken care of
    • The rooms are spacious, but there is also a wide range of room types
    • The views from the rooms are exceptionally overwhelming
    • From a pool to a butler, everything is private
