Know Before You Go...

If your standards are in the upper stratosphere, then the 14,000-square foot, 4-level African Sapphire at Altamer is for you. It's big and right on Shoal Bay West beach, and has literally every amenity you can think of. You'll have a private butler, 8 bathrooms (all with bath), sports/games, a balcony, a pool, and, if you're like our readers, you'll rave about the service and beauty of the place. You're also sure to love the floating jacuzzi, which is actually on a bridge over the pool (yes, you read that right). There's also a huge great room with seating for up to 30 people, stunning views and tons of space to chill out.
