SINGAPORE — If you have an extra $2 million in spare change, you might be keen on this meal in Singapore that bills itself as the “world’s most expensive dining experience.”
Ce La Vi, on the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore, is teaming up with Russian diamond company World of Diamonds, to offer the exclusive experience that will last an estimated eight hours, they said in a press release Tuesday.
The two-person package will start with a 45-minute helicopter ride over Singapore, and includes some time in a luxury cruise and a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce ride to Ce La Vi, where the diners will be presented with 10,000 roses and an 18-course meal.

The companies promise that the meal (to be eaten with diamond chopsticks with the diners’ names engraved on them) includes all sorts of other decadent elements such as Belon oysters, Almas Caviar — supposedly the most expensive variety — and only 44- and 55-year-old vintage wines.
And at the end of the meal, the couple will be presented with a 2.08 carat blue diamond ring with a rose-gold plated platinum band, that World of Diamonds has named after actress Jane Seymour.
According to Luxury Lifestyle, diamonds this blue have been known to be auctioned at over $2 million, and that it’s already received interest from a number of parties, including a royal family.
Karan Tilani, head of Asia for World of Diamonds confirmed to Mashable that the company had already received “substantial interest” on the ring before the Ce La Vi tie-up.
World of Diamonds unveiled the ring together with the actress in Singapore about three months ago.
The companies have not yet said when the meal will commence, but have noted that interested applicants will be screened, and they will select the lucky duo for this luxurious dining experience.
For now, the two will continue fielding requests from interested parties ahead of a press preview slated for August — no doubt intended to drum up more publicity for the event — at which Ce La Vi and World of Diamonds will present items such as a diamond dessert and the diamond-studded chopsticks.
