Antilia is the name of the worlds most costly apartment. A silver stairway, Magnificent crystal chandeliers, six floors just for parking, a panoramic view of the city of Mumbai. But wait. This is not a description of a seven star hotel. It is the costliest house on planet earth. Behold Antilla, home to Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in India.
Antilla, the most expensive house in the world
tilla, the most expensive house in the world is ready for house warming by end of October 2010. It is billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s one billion dollar (USD) “Antilla” and will out price any other home in the world.
Ambani’s behemoth comes with facilities like a health club, personal gym for all the members of the family, dance studio, a ballroom, guestrooms, numerous lounges, a 50-seat screening room, an elevated garden, three helipads, and underground parking for 160 vehicles and if rumors are right, an Ice room to create artificial snow during peak summers.
If that was not enough, the most expensive house in the world has got four floors of open air gardens, a 65 seat theater complete with wine and snack bar, a spa, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and
The last time Forbes ranked the world’s most expensive homes was November 2009, when The Manor, Candy Spelling’s Beverly Hills mansion, won out – it was priced at $150 million. But nothing so far has come even close to the 1 billion dollar mark.
According to Forbes, Mukesh, along with his wife Nita Ambani, three children and a modest 600-person staff would move to new 27 storyed home from the 22 storyd house they are in right now.

Every minute detail of the housewarming is being carefully planned. As per the grapevine, couturiers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla are designing the clothes for everyone in the family for the occasion except for the elder Ambani scion. It is said that Nita Ambani, the elegantly-dressed wife of Mukesh, has chosen the designer duo.
It is also learnt that Sakul Intakul, an engineer-turned-floral artist known for interpreting spiritual ideas through sculptural plant installations, is doing the interiors of the building for the function. Intakul’s previous commissions include Royal commissions for the Queen of Thailand and Bvlgari Hotels and Resorts, Bali.
The house which has become the talk of the town — Mukesh Ambani’s new high rise at Mumbai’s posh Altamount Road, may soon sport a new name. Apparently, the quaint Antilia, according to insiders, doesn’t have as much positive energy as the traditional occupants would like. However, nobody is quite sure yet as to what the new name of the 27-floor apartment would be, which is said to be the world’s costliest address. The name is likely to be announced at a traditional function, followed by a high society gathering in the evening of November 28, at Ambani’s new abode.
According to people who have received an e mail invite from India’s richest industrialist, they are eagerly waiting to see the mansion, which mostly resembles a luxurious hotel with its multi-floor car parking, huge swimming pool, Jacuzzi, ballroom, helipads and so on. A personalised invite, is expected to follow soon.
Apart from the exclusivity of the house itself, the guest list for the event is also said to be very exclusive. The Ambanis have sent out invites to a small number of very close family friends and business associates — said to be around 211 — as they want to keep it a very private ceremony. Some of the usual suspects who are likely to attend the function are legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Deora, Union petroleum minister, who is also an old family friend, Union civil aviation minister Praful Patel and business magnate Anand Mahindra. Infact, people in the know say that there is huge anticipation among the who’s who as to whether their names are there in the list of the 211 invitees or not.
