Remember when Travie McCoy sang about wanting to be a billionaire “so freaking bad” that he would give away cars, be on the cover of Forbes Magazine and adopt babies like Brangelina? Well, maybe Travie didn’t know about the Caribbean’s most expensive hotel, otherwise I’m sure the lyrics would have included a stay at the exclusive Lighthouse Bay Resort.

Recently, a survey by CaribbeanResorts.net found The Lighthouse Bay Resort to be the costliest resort in the Caribbean. To acquire the results, the site focused on high peak season travel, most affordable double room and given a one month booking window. Among the top 20 hotels, Amanyara (Turks & Caicos) took second with Sheriva Villa Hotel (Anguilla) finishing third.

Naturally, arriving at Lighthouse Bay Resort is an option only for the elite with travel by jet plane or helicopter. Those without the means to secure that kind of snazzy transport will have to settle for Google images to see this luxurious destination. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Codrington Lagoon, the private nine-suite resort is available to guests as an exclusive island retreat. If this sounds like exactly what you’re looking for, then get ready to spend $2,490 for just one night’s stay. You can’t put a price on paradise, right?

Over on the Turks & Caicos Islands, Amanyara, with its villas scattered throughout tropical vegetation and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean made the list due to its hefty price tag of $2,059 per night. This serene hideaway seamlessly blends together its natural environment with its modern design through sliding-glass walls that create the appearance of limitless space between your accommodations and the turquoise waters below.
