Brunch envy: The world’s 10 most expensive bottomless brunches revealed.

Updated: Jul 11, 2022

Soleil at The Mulia

I love to brunch, but The Husband? Not so much.

Which means the chance that I will be dining at any of these places in the near future is slim to non-existent.

But maybe there’s hope for you. (And even if there isn’t, it’s still fun to dream, right?)

The folks at Merchant Cash Advance put together this cool list of the top 10 most expensive bottomless brunches in the world, and well, I just had to share it.

I mean seriously? Delicious food, endless bubbles and the chance to dress up, what’s not to love about bottomless brunch?

It’s time for the countdown.

10. SOLEIL AT THE MULIA – NUSA DUA, BALI - $103 per person

Bottomless brunch with gorgeous sea views and the best seasonal ingredients? Sounds like a match made in heaven, or in this case, Soleil, the signature restaurant of The Mulia.

Enjoy a mouth-watering menu of Pan Asian tapas and small tasting plates or try the live grilling stations, where you have the choice of premium steaks and fresh seafood.

Safe to say, we’re obsessed.

What we'd order: The Seafood Tower. Where better to overindulge on seafood than right by The Bali Sea?

9. STERLING BRUNCH, BALLY'S – LAS VEGAS - $111 per person

Brunch should be a show-stopping affair and nowhere says over-the-top decadence better than the Sterling Brunch at Bally’s, Las Vegas.

In this contemporary spin on an American Steakhouse, treat yourself to a touch of Las Vegas luxury with endless Nicolas Feuillatte champagne and mimosas the moment you step through the door.

What we'd order: The signature Gruyere poppers. We love anything cheesy.

8. WALDORF ASTORIA – NEW YORK CITY - $111 per person

It’s safe to say you might want to pace yourself so you can taste everything on offer at the Waldorf Astoria.

The unique bottomless brunch meets hotel buffet-style brunch has us ready to fill our plates. Not satisfied by the masses of fresh oysters and clams or the huge chocolate fountain? Then it’s time to try the Baked Alaska. Not only do they torch it in front of you, but the honey in the ice cream comes straight from their very own beehives on the roof!

What we'd order: The Baked Alaska. Obviously.


Designed by Michelin Star Chef Marcel Ravin as an opportunity to relax as you sip on bottomless glasses of Moët et Chandon vintage 2013 or a homemade welcome cocktail whilst you take in the ocean view.

You must visit the show cooking section, where the chefs create a feast for the eyes, not just your stomachs, using ingredients hand-selected by the chefs themselves.

With a new menu each week, this is one for the foodies.

What we'd order: Anything from the show cooking station.


This is it; we can finally live out our Emily in Paris dreams of becoming a classy, stylish Parisian by indulging in one of the many treats at The Kitchen at The Royal Monceau.

Whether you fancy a more traditional breakfast or the classic Avocado Toast, we have no doubt that you’ll find more than one thing to enjoy.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a French brunch without a gorgeous array of pastries and desserts crafted by pastry chef Quentin Lechat.

What we'd order: The Fois Gras eclair.


It’s time to take brunch to the skies with Shangri-La’s Sky Brunch.

Located 34 floors up in The Shard, Shangri-La has partnered with Veuve Clicquot to bring you bottomless champagne paired with Asian inspired food and followed by a dessert platter.

We know, it sounds almost too good to be true. 

What we'd order: The Crispy Oyster Mushrooms with Sourdough and Miso Pickle. 4.


The Traiteur Brunch is renowned for its brunches, and with good reason. Not only can you enjoy a different station for every type of food imaginable, but it’s paired with a view of fancy yachts bobbing in the water.

Talk about the perfect brunch setting. There isn’t much that you can’t find here, so explore the open kitchen concept until you can finally decide what you’ll be treating yourself to.

What we'd order: The pasta pearls in the parmesan cheese wheel.


Excuse us, did someone say ‘Sunday Champagne Brunch?’ Don’t mind if we do.

At Colony, you’re invited to their new dining concept that allows you to watch culinary showmanship in ‘live’ conservatory kitchens.

Why not try The Wok, perfect for sampling local wok-fried delicacies or The Tandoor, where you will find Indian meats, seafood and bread all cooked in a traditional tandoor oven.

It’s almost too hard to choose, but with unlimited servings, why should you have to?

What we'd order: Cognac Infused Lobster Bisque. At this point, we might as well go all out.

2. OZONE, THE RITZ-CARLTON – HONG KONG - $308 per person

There’s a reason that The Ritz-Carlton has made the list twice, and it has everything to do with their unbeatable brunches.

Meet Ozone. Here you can enjoy your brunch at the highest bar in the world with spectacular views over Hong Kong that will make you feel on top of the world (because, you pretty much are).

You can take your pick from seafood platters featuring blue mussels and snow crab legs or try something like the ​​Cheese Linguine Aglio e Olio with Shrimp and Lobster for a carb-loaded feast.

What we'd order: Wagyu Beef Burger with Truffle Fries

Zuma in Miami

1. ZUMA – MIAMI - $361 per person

Zuma is the place to go if you’re bored of the standard brunch menu.

Featuring Japanese cuisine that’s authentic but not traditional, the izakaya-style means there is no set way for ordering your food, as these dishes are meant to be shared.

So bring your foodie friends to sample everything the menu has to offer, which is a lot. Get ready to enjoy the freshest quality ingredients that don’t need to rely on fancy plating as the food speaks for itself.

What we'd order: The Truffle Hotpot. Perfect for sharing, if you want to.

Interesting side note: My son lives in Miami and we were there visiting last week when he suggested we go to Zuma for brunch. (We didn’t, but hopefully next time.)

Turns out there is a more affordable bottomless brunch option that doesn’t involve caviar and includes a less-expensive champagne. He’s enjoyed the brunch several times and says it’s incredible.

So now that you have brunch envy, there’s only one thing to do: Start saving and practice saying, “I’ll have the bottomless champagne, please.”
