Sleeping On A $150,000 Bed!
Can you imagine the best night of sleep you’ve ever had in your entire life and multiplying that times 100? Well, today I’m going to tell you about the world’s most expensive bed that cost more than 150 000 and what it was like sleeping on this glorious bed manufactured out of horsehair. Now the bed I’m referring to is called the hastens the Vetus bed. It cost 150 000, and we had the pleasure of spending five glorious nights staying at a hotel that had one of these beds in their rooms. Before we go into the actual experience of what it was like sleeping on this bed, I want just to backtrack now. The place we stayed was hotel Passai, located in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Now, this was an absolutely glorious stay in the heart of Lithuania in Vilnius, and the hotel cost zero dollars for us because we booked with points. We used around 20 000 points per night through Marriott because it was off-peak. We were able to get an extra night for free because we used four nights and then got the fifth night for free, so if you’re looking to do this, I’ll go ahead and post the number of points you need to stay at the same hotel. It’s an absolute steal for a deal because you get to experience a beautiful bed like this. We were actually upgraded to this room, so make sure you double-check before you go ahead and book because it’s not guaranteed we were there in the winter, which is their off-peak season. The hotel was pretty much empty.
So they made our stay extra special because we’re elite members before we got to the hotel we weren’t even aware of this bed when we went to check in they escorted us to our room, gave us history about the actual hotel and also told us about the room and especially the bed the person who was showing us the room was saying that people fly all around the world just to experience sleeping in this bed. I was a little bit skeptical at first. Still, after spending that first night there, I was absolutely blown away. It was just a great environment. The whole city was covered with snow. It was absolutely gorgeous in the winter. You know, when it’s a little bit colder out, you’re spending a lot more time in bed just kind of relaxing, so this bed just to give you a little bit more details about it.
It does cost 150,000, and you’re probably wondering what makes this bed a hundred times more expensive than the traditional bed. You can buy beds for five hundred to a thousand dollars. I think the average American spends probably around that much on their bed, so what’s going to make this bed a hundred times better? It’s a custom-made continental bed built by four master artisans from hasten’s workshop in Sweden. Now it has a pine wood frame, steel springs and layers of flax, and then horsetail hair. It also has cotton and wool batting, so essentially, this is such an expensive bed because there’s so much manual labor there is a lot of handmade work that goes into these beds they say it takes around ten weeks or two or three months to build one of these beds, and that’s pretty impressive that’s the reason that there is so much pricing manual labor is not cheap anywhere in the world.
But especially not in Sweden and especially not by these master artisans who are building these beds and crafting these beautiful beds. One way to justify ever doing this was it was easy for us because we were just using points. Still, I would always recommend before you spend 150 000 on a bed to give it a test ride, so staying at the hotel Passai kind of gave us a really good experience of what it was like sleeping on a bed. I wonder if people are actually going to justify doing this. You know you spend a third of your life asleep sleeping in a bed might as well be comfortable. If you have this bed for around 20 years, it works out to be around two dollars per hour of actual sleep, so I’m sure that’s how people justify acquiring and purchasing one of the world’s most expensive beds.
Overall I would say we absolutely love this bed. It was five nights of the best nights of sleep that I’ve ever had. It was like sleeping on a cloud, and I highly recommend people add Vilnius to your list if you are in eastern Europe. It’s a beautiful city. There’s so much to do there, and I just made a video about driving a tank in Vilnius, which I’ll leave a link at the end of this video so you can check that out, and you know we just had a really luxurious experience for a really fraction of the price. Hence, we booked this hotel for free with points. We had a really great driving experience in a tank which is not nearly as expensive as you might think. Overall, Vilnius was just covered in snow. It is absolutely beautiful. It’s something that you should definitely add to your list.
I think it’s a little bit off the beaten path not a lot of Americans go there, so it’s definitely worth checking out and seeing if it would be a great fit for you. The overall hotel service was phenomenal, so the hotel is stunning. It’s a five-star hotel. It was a 17th-century mansion that was converted into a hotel. The facilities are phenomenal. They have a beautiful spa. The receptionist and all the people we interacted with were extremely helpful with just making sure our stay in Vilnius was special. The room was so lovely, like in addition to the bed, you know, just having that bed in a normal room would be enough. Still, the bathrooms were gorgeous overall. The hotel was just a fantastic stay. We enjoyed just checking out Lithuania. The food was delicious everything about the country was unbelievable, to be honest.
It’s one of these places that I don’t know why more people aren’t visiting. I just think it’s a little bit off the beaten path, and it’s highly worth checking out if you’re going to be in the area or traveling to Europe and looking to get off the beaten path. Definitely add a Vilnius to your bucket list and make sure you stay at the hotel Passai experience sleeping in one of the world’s most expensive beds.
