 Living in the Lap of Luxury: 10 Most Extravagant Guest Requests at Luxury Hotels

Designing a private golf course on a glacier, creating an exact replica of a unique coffee shop-these are just some of the most extravagant guest requests luxury hotels around the world have encountered.

The Great Hotels of the World, a group of five star hotels and resorts around the globe, released a list of the most extravagant and unusual guest requests they have experienced as part of their 91 Days of Summer campaign, reports The Courier Mail.


And based on the list, news.com.au has compiled a selection of the 10 most extravagant requests.

The most extravagant requests are:

1. Designing a private golf course, on a glacier

After three holes, the guest got bored and demanded to be flown back to the hotel where he proceeded to drink a 2000 Euro bottle of wine.

2. Replica of romance

One guest at the London Landmark hotel wanted to close down the gazebo and redecorate it so that it was an exact replica of the coffee shop that he had first met his girlfriend in. He had planned to propose to his girlfriend in this coffee shop where they met, but it had since closed down. The hotel was able to fulfil his wish and completed the replica coffee shop.

3. A private dinner in a cave

A guest at Alpen Resort, Meeting and Spa, Spain, requested a romantic candle-lit dinner to be organised in the Pagani cave at the base of the Presolana Mountain.

4. Fill her up

During a company event at the Clarion Hotel, Stockholm, for a gas company, they built a full replica of a gas station including most of the services you would expect to find such as food, drinks, newspapers and maps, in the hotel's restaurant.

5.Cheesecake craving

A home-sick Vila Vita Parc Resort and Spa, Portugal, guest had a big craving for cheesecake from his favourite bakery in New York. The hotel delivered one to him all the way from New York.

6. Building a personalised garden

A guest was staying at the Hotel d'Europe for a week. He loved gardens so much he had his gardener set up a full landscape garden on the terrace of his suite.

7. Fly me to Venice

One of the Capital's usual guests was on holiday with his other half in Switzerland. He decided to treat her to a romantic getaway from the already romantic getaway they were on. So he called up The Capital's concierge to arrange a helicopter to pick them up in Switzerland and take them to Venice for the day.

8. Pampered pooch

Two guests booked two executive deluxe rooms at the Swiss Diamond Hotel Olivella-one was exclusively for their dog.

9. Parachuting into a wedding at the hotel's solarium

An adrenaline-junkie groom wanted to make a big entrance to his wedding, and thus parascended into the ceremony. The wedding itself was held in Spain's Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque Resort's solarium within tropical gardens.

10.Horse show with a difference

A guest asked if the Hotel Elba Costa Ballena, Spain, could organise a special kind of horse show. The hotel arranged a flamenco show with horses at their beach club for the guest.
