Banwa Private Island, a new resort in the Philippines, costs $100,000 (P5 Million) a night — the most expensive island resort in the world.

The inclusive resort has a full staff of chefs who cook with vegetables from the onsite organic farm and fish caught from the surrounding Sulu Sea. The resort even makes its own honey. The wine list has bottles costing as much as $36,000 (P1,800,000) (though premium wines are not included in the resort rate).


Guests have use of an island concierge and they can get unlimited spa treatments.
