There's nothing understated about the luxury at this gorgeous lounge. Appointed with cream leather chairs, Italian marble counter tops and floors, not to mention a business center, great food, beautiful showers and 42-inch plasma screens, Emirates' New York lounge for business and first-class passengers has it all. The only down-side? It's not easy to access. But hey, that's part of the exclusivity, right? Bonus: purchase a first- or business-class ticket and Emirates picks you up in New York City in a town car—a hidden luxury for all who have traversed city airports in rush-hour traffic.

COST: Requires business- or first-class tickets.
