Dreaming of living it up at the Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi this year? Well depending on just how much a high roller you are, a long weekend trackside could set you back AED120,000 ($32,700) for two people.
Yas Viceroy, the hotel where the UAE's Sheikhs stay on F1 weekend, have a package that you could probably only afford if you've been saving up since 2015's star-studded festivities. If you want an experience that will rival the likes of Kevin Hart, Ludacris, Akon and plenty more famous faces last year, you'd better have plenty of cash to splash for fun at the gigs, fine dining and after-parties.
This exclusive package grants the buyer a four-night stay in the Island Suite which has a wraparound balcony for an incredible view of the track and marina. Of course all the bubbly you need is supplied. Not only do racing fans get to watch the cars zoom by from the comfort of their own accommodation though, before all the action kicks off, on the Thursday the buyer will get a pit lane walk. Who knows, you might bump into Lewis Hamilton!
There's no need to worry about going hungry either as dinner is more than taken care of when Quattro Passi takes over Amici. Two-Michelin starred chef Antonio Mellino - who has restaurants on the Amalfi Coast and in London's Mayfair will be in town with his team making sure guests east the finest in Italian cuisine. Then for the final race, diners can enjoy an Omakase menu on the terrace at Kazu with house beverages and sake.
All F1 ticket holders get free access to Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld but it may help you justify the AED60,000…
