When it comes to bedroom decorating, many of us just head to the local Ikea to pick up a cheap bed or chest of drawers. But for the 1% who live lives of luxury, bedrooms are more like palaces, with every detail gone into their designs. HGTV takes us on a journey with their incredible list of the world’s most luxurious bedrooms, and you may just be surprised what some people are treated to.

We’re talking marble floors, panoramic views of African bushland, intricate ceiling frescoes, and rooms situated right on natural springs.

Each bedroom on this list is just as different as the next, but it’s definitely surprising to see just how luxury translates from continent to continent. And no word on how much a night in each room costs. But like they say, if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.
