THE annual World Economic Forum starts today as leaders from across the globe meet in the Swiss ski village of Davos to discuss key issues including climate change and political decisions.
This year, key leaders attending include Greta Thunburg, Prince Charles, and US president Donald Trump.
Trump is expected to stay at the InterContinental Davos hotel for one night following his speech today.
The hotel first opened in 2013 and is known as the “Golden Egg”, being one of the first things to spot when landing by plane in Davos.
The luxury hotel, surrounded by alpine forests, boasts 216 rooms ranging from standard to deluxe suites, many of which have views of the mountains or the valley.
Each room also has a complimentary mini bar and marble roll top baths.
However, Trump will most likely be staying in the Presidential Suite – a 160 square metre room with a grand living room, dining room for eight as well as a walk in dressing room and a free standing bath overlooking the lake.
A stay at the hotel includes free drinks at the Nuts & Co Bar with a current “cheese bubble pop up” restaurant which serves cheese and meat dishes in a glass bubble in the middle of the forest.
It takes luxury seriously, with options for limousine pick ups, cultural tours such as cheese making or beer tasting of even a romantic horse and carriage ride.
Fancy some special treatment? You can get massages, go for a swim or even have your own private spa booked out.
Rooms start from £200 per night while the Presidential Suite starts from £2,670 per night.
Other hotels popular with guests at the annual event include the Hotel Seehof, Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvedere and the Hilton Garden Inn.
First hosted in 1971, the World Economic Forum now invites around 3,000 people every year.
Last year, Prince William spoke about mental health and David Attenbourough warned about the damage to the environment.
However, you have to be invited – if not then you have to become a member of the forum which costs £480,000.
The five-star Bad Ragaz hotel in Davos is also popular during the event, with seven restaurants and even a medical health centre on site.
Another luxury InterContinental Hotel includes the Shanghai Wonderland in China, which is built in an old quarry.
The Trump family booked an entire floor at the £22,000 a night Corinthia Hotel in London during their first state visit last year.
