What is the most luxurious thing or experience you can have by just redeeming miles?
Not available now, but it used to be the KrisFlyer LIFETIME Loyalty Scheme (scrapped in 2007 as it was not sustainable).
Members of Singapore Airlines’ top drawer PPS Club enjoy the usual benefits of many frequent flyer schemes such as increased baggage allowance, access to airport lounges and priority boarding, but they were offered life membership once they reached a certain level.
I'd say it's the Etihad Residence, the three-room monstrosity on Etihad's A380s. Private bedroom, living room and shower, butler service, customized onboard menus, exclusive lounge. It's not a good idea to redeem it though, because there are no saver awards. You'll spend about 1.5-2 million miles for a one-way redemption. That said, it's technically possible, so that counts for me.

Many great answers here, unfortunately, I believe I won't redeem most of it.
The best I will do for myself is first class flight (long haul) for europe or USA for my holidays.
Its quite exclusive to travel on first class on SIA (or most airlines), and its not a huge expense like Etihad Residence that I won't find it worthwhile.
First class is pretty good luxury life!
Casey Neistat's Emirates First Class experience (on his Youtube channel) seemed to have taken the spot like a cherry on top for me.
For me - I would say its a luxury holiday without the hassle.
Imagine a scenario where someone says you have it all: First class ticket, Luxury hotels, transfers all across and they say - "that would be xxx,xxx miles". That would just be ideal wouldnt it? :)
Most prestigious, most exclusive?
I personally think it is Air France La Premiere on their 777W, not A380.
First off, you need to redeem using Air France miles, and you must be in their elite tier of their frequent flyer program to even be able to access award space.
Too much review out there on their soft and hard product but the reviews are always on the positive side. Good lounge, good food, good service. This is france we are talking about. You can't go wrong with their food. And the lamp on their seat? I cannot even.
To me, next would be SQ new Suites and Etihad apartment/residence.
As Aaron has posted its the it's the Etihad Residence, the three-room monstrosity on Etihad's A380s.
For more common redemption it is the First Class Suites Flight on SIA.
It is one of the best first class seats in the world with good flight services, dining and drinks option
Using Krisflyer miles you can redeem some of prestigious rewards on Krishop such as ROLEX Watch & first class suite from Singapore to New York.
First-class flight? Can't possibly go wrong with that! 🤩
Here is everything about me and what I do best.
