Sunborn is a property development and investment company based in Finland that owns and operates hotels throughout Europe. One of their more remarkable ventures is Sunburn London, a luxury hotel in the form of a 394-foot superyacht moored permanently in the British capital’s Royal Victoria Dock. Sunburn London offers tourists the opportunity to get most of the luxury yacht experience without spending a fortune on buying or renting such a boat. Nevertheless, the five-story, 138-room hotel offers top-notch facilities, including a spa, gourmet restaurant, terraces with views over the towers of Canary Wharf and a number of signature suites including two royal

Richard Branson is always in the new with another great idea, but this is one of the more interesting enterprises we’ve heard of in a while. Working with the locals in Kenya’s Maasai Mara reserve, he created Mahali Mzuri – a luxurious “camp” designed to satisfy the most discerning travelers, while also having a minimal impact on the environment. Located on the northern boundary of the Maasai Mara, the property was initially divided between a multitude of Maasai families, which wasn’t bad economically as well as ecologically. The Motorogi Conservancy was created when 277 local families decided it would be more beneficial

BMW has unveiled the M4 Convertible before its first public showcasing during the New York Auto Show in two weeks time. As you would expect, the model is quite similar to the M4 Coupe, the main difference being the power retractable hard top which can be lowered in 20 seconds at speeds up to 11 mph. The two vehicles` cabins are basically identical: both come with a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and sport seats, as well as contrast stitching, an M gearshift and M-branded sill plates. Just like the M4 Coupe, the convertible features a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that churns

When TAG Heuer released the Monaco V4 Concept Watch a decade ago, it was nothing short of a revolution: the Swiss luxury watchmaker had just created the first timepiece that replaced the usual pinion and gear transmission with a belt driven movement. Fast forward ten years, to this year’s Baselworld, which has seen TAG Heuer go even further – this time, they’ve combined their unique belt technology with one of most emblematic complications in the entire art of watchmaking , the tourbillion. The result is the exquisite timepiece that is the Monaco V4 Tourbillon. The addition of those transmission belts we’ve mentioned

Columbus Yachts unveiled their innovative Sport Hybrid model during last year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Deisgned by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec Naval Architecture and featuring interiors by Hot Lab, Columbus 40S Hybrid is as visually appealing as it is technically advanced. The 40-meter boat, with a silver hull and white superstructure, smooth curves and axe bow, looks really impressive from the outside. Powered by an advanced hybrid engine, it can nonetheless reach a more than decent top speed of 23 knots and features a complex system that ensures it gets the best performance with as little environmental impact as possible.

MotoArt is a California-based company that designs and creates furniture made from vintage airplane parts. The piece we are showcasing here is a bed made from the engine of a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet. Admittedly, the piece does look a bit like something a little boy with dreams of being an aviator might want. There’s nothing childish about it, however. This kingsize bed comes with a padded leather headboard and footboard and customizable lighting, while the mattress is set between two halves of the nacelle (which is the circular casing on the front of the engine). So if you’re an aircraft enthusiast,
