Fundu Lagoon is a small, yet luxurious boutique hotel set in a remote part of Zanzibar, on the island of Pemba. The idyllic retreat is only accessible by boat and is surrounded by a beautiful beach on one side and lush foliage on the other. But you won’t get a chance to feel like you’re stranded on a desert island, as the staff is always there to help and tend to your every need. And the accommodations, spacious and discrete tented rooms with thatched roofs, will immediately make you feel right at home. Everywhere you find yourself, you’re just a stone’s throw

After the award-winning Axioma superyacht we’ve presented a few months ago, here is another very impressive concept by Diana Scott, of Monaco-based design company Sterling / Scott: the Nickelodeon project. The vessel is a massive 127 meters in length, inspired by submarine design and boasting all the lavish amenities you’d expect to find on such a floating palace. There is enough space on board to accommodate a sizeable party, with no fewer than 11 spacious and well-appointed cabins awaiting their guests. The superyacht also boasts ample exterior spaces, for formal and informal dining, as well as interior areas for all kinds of
Linde Werdelin is a company that isn’t afraid to break the mould and lead the way when it comes to watch design and the usage of innovative materials, which is exactly what makes the latest addition to the Oktopus Moon series, called the octopus Moon Carbon, so special. The timepiece is an excellent mix of modern design and state-of-the-art materials. In fact, over 2 years have been dedicated to the research that eventually went into making the watch, most notably in perfecting a process which would compress carbon fibers into the desired shape. The result is the 3DTP™ (or 3-Dimensional Thin Ply)
It’s been a while since we’ve shown you a really expensive case for the iPhone 6. In case you were wondering if anything new has emerged recently, here’s a great-looking piece by Goldgenie, called the Luxury Gold iPhone 6 Swarowski Brilliance Elite. While its name is indeed quite a mouthful, it sort of needs to be to describe just how extravagant the case is. The back and sides are either 24-carat yellow or rose gold, or platinum, with Swarowski crystals set around the bezel and back top and bottom. The piece is presented in a lavish Cherry Oak box and comes with
Italian sports car manufacturer Pagani has created another impressive one-of-a-kind version of its Zonda supercar, which was given the (rather colorless) moniker 760RSJX. The company had previously announced that the Zonda Revolucion would be the last member of the series, though this was proven not to be the case, as several other one-offs have been delivered since then. The newest – the Zonda 760RSJX – has been created for a customer based in Hong Kong. Part of the 760 range, the vehicle is equipped with the same massive V12 7.3-liter naturally aspirating engine, which churns out 760 hp (559 kW). One of
Located at the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, NIZUC Resort & Spa used to be an observation point for Mayan astronomers and then a high-end retreat for world leaders visiting the area. Since 2013, it has been welcoming discerning travelers from all over the world, who are attracted by the picturesque surroundings and high standards of luxury.

The site is surrounded by mangroves and luxuriant foliage, and also offers two private white
The island of Capri, located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the coast of Naples, has been a popular resort since the times of the Roman Empire. The emperor Tiberius enjoyed the place so much he spent the last ten years of his life on the island, building a dozen villas there. It’s not hard to imagine why someone would want to move here and never leave, especially if you’re living in an imperial palace – or a mansion like the one we are about to showcase here. The property is built above the Villa Palatium, whose ruins can still be seen today.
