Chris Davenport leads a team of skiers up a steep peak in the Antarctic Peninsula.
Burj Al Arab, Dubai
Guests at the Burj Al Arab, the Dubai outfit that started the whole five-stars-are-barely-a-twinkle trend, get to choose whether they want to arrive by Rolls Royce, BMW or helicopter. Expect to pay around £900 a night for even one of the most basic suites and the more expensive rooms feature rotating beds, private lifts and gold staircases. Sprucing up for the evening? Book a £200 caviar facial at the Assawan spa. Then dine at Al Mahara restaurant, where you can admire tropical fish through a floor-to-ceiling aquarium as you feast on their distant relatives.
If money's no object, and your sense of taste is, shall we say, plastic, the Burj really is the place to stay.
