There are some things in life whose probability of occurrence is next to none. Example, Salman Khan acting in a critically-acclaimed movie, the Indian football team playing in a FIFA World Cup, and me checking in at any of the properties I am about to show you. These resorts are straight out of a wealthy man's wildest dreams, and staying here for a night will take your entire month's salary. Without further delay, check out these eight ultra-luxurious resorts across the world:

The third entry in the list from UAE is situated inside one of the most recognisable man-made buildings in the world – the Burj Khalifa. Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is located on a private island, hence all its ultra-luxurious suites are sea-facing. The guests can only arrive here in either one of the world's largest chauffeur-driven fleets of Rolls-Royces or via a dedicated helicopter service. Sigh.

The most basic stay costs: Rs. 1,04,064 per night

What's so special: The terrace has two swimming pools, luxury cabanas, a restaurant and a bar, which basically transforms the property into a full resort. The insides of a suite include floor-to-ceiling windows, 4-carat gold iPads, and a Bose iPhone docking station. Their Sky View Bar is suspended 200 m above sea level.

Where: Dubai, UAE
