Experience Staying on Your Very Own Island
While some might be satisfied with vacationing at a resort, why not try something different and give your loved ones the experience of having a whole island to themselves. Nowadays there are destinations that can be rented day or night, for family, friends or for a romantic getaway with your partner. The Four Seasons Voavah, in the Maldives, for example, is one of these island getaways. With a capacity for only 22 people, the resort offers the use of a majestic yacht, along with a state-of-the-art spa, private chefs and nature excursions in its UNESCO biosphere reserve. The only way to make a reservation and find out what the price of staying here is by contacting the hotel directly. Another island for rent is Musha Cay, in the Bahamas, which has a maximum capacity for 24 guests and costs about $45,500 per night, with a minimum stay of 4 days.
Macallan experience: private jet and whiskey tasting
Although a typical drink to offer at parties is champagne, whiskey has started to become more popular to serve with a variety of different labels to choose from. One group in particular that is responsible for this shift is the Macallan experience! The Scotch whiskey maker has partnered with Monarch Air Group and Golden Yacht Charters to offer “Rare Journey,” an exclusive private jet trip that includes an extraordinary tasting of The Macallan Master Series accompanied by Beluga caviar. The trip starts at Teterboro airport in New York aboard an Embraer plane and continues, after landing at the private airport of Opa-Locka in Miami, on a 100-foot yacht that sails from Hallandale. There is where the tasting, snacks and fun begins. This trip, which is available in December 2018 costs about $46,000 for a group of seven guests, which can be increased according to the number of passengers you want to take, the size of the yacht and above all, the antiquity of the whiskey that is served.
The Most Expensive Dog in the World
If your loved one loves animals, you might want to consider giving him or her the most expensive dog in the world this holiday. The red Tibetan mastiff, a rare dog breed, costs $2 million. Originally from the nomadic cultures of China and Nepal, it is a large dog with a history of once being responsible for guarding Tibetan temples.
Its high price is due to its origins being linked to China almost 4,000 years ago. Aristotle, in 350 BC, described the Tibetan mastiff as a dog breed resembling that of a tiger.
The Ideal Coffee Machine for Car Lovers
Espresso Veloce Autumn 18 ct is an exclusive and state-of-the-art coffee machine made with the same materials used in race cars, such as titanium, carbon fiber or aluminum. Created by the firm Super Veloce, this coffee maker is a tribute to the motors of Formula 1 cars of the 90s and comes with strokes in 18 carat gold.
The operation of the coffee machine is peculiar, as the coffee brews in the oil tank and the exhaust pipes act as liquid dispensers. There are different versions and materials resulting in prices ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.
