How it looks and how much it costs to rent the luxury villa where the British and Arab royal families spent their holidays

In the largest resort on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, Antalya, there are many luxury hotel complexes with accommodation conditions adapted to even the most demanding tastes. But the rent is proportional to the requirements, so VIPs have to pay over 10,000 euros per night to benefit by such accommodation.

One of the luxury hotel resorts in which British and Arabian royal families have spent their holidays, as well as some of the richest people in the world, including Roman Abramovich, is Calista Luxury Resort in Antalya.
