The ultimate, men’s toy is what this week is dedicated to. From expensive super cars to top notch five star hotels across the world, here is a roundup of the exquisite luxurious men would love splurging on.
This month seems dedicated to unique cars, right from the ones at the Detroit Auto Show to the CES 2015 tech show. Here’s our forecast on the top five cars worth spending on this year. Ranking first on the list is the sporty version of BMW’s petrol-electric plug-in hybrid, BMW i8, which is soon to make its entry in India. Following BMW in the race are the sedans – Mercedes-Maybach S600, Jaguar F Type convertible, Nissan GT-R and the Range Rover SUV.
From cars we’ve moved onto these 11 hotels recommended by Tripadvisor, perfect for an all-guys luxury getaway. Offering exceptional services and amenities, these hotels have been rated best based on the unforgettable experiences provided to travellers. The list begins with a 45-villa suite beach resort Gili Lankanfushi in Maldives, followed by Arenal Volcano’s neighbours—the Nayara Spa & Gardens in Costa Rica. Beach theme resorts in Brazil and the Hotel Belvedere in Italy end the list. They sure make for perfect destinations for a bachelors’ party or a pre-wedding getaway.
While beach resorts have their own charm, underlining architectural heritage are these top five hotels in Rome. Hotels in Rome are a treat for those who have an eye for luxury, and are willing to splurge a little extra. Here is a handpicked list compiling those few unique and vintage Roman hotels. It includes Waldorf Astoria’s Rome Cavalieri, Sofitel’s Rome Villa Borghese, Grand Hotel Palace, St. Regis and the hotel with the Rome’s biggest aqua city—The Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto.
Must-haves for Men:
There are many expensive items men would love splurging on when travelling, but are they really worth it? Let’s make things easy. Here’s a list of the seven luxuries every globetrotter must own. Vertu and Bentley’s iconic collaboration–the Vertu Signature Touch Bentley tops our list. Following it is the 18k gold edition of the slimmest watch, Piaget Altiplano 900P, LV’s easy-going Pegase55 Business cabin bag, followed by Prada’s monochrome shoes, Bang & Olufsen’s Beo Play H8 Wireless headphones, Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne from Jo Malone and finally the secret to a perfect clean shaven look—the Penholigon’s Nickel shaving kit.
If these got your heart racing, you must check out the some epic timepieces recent launched by the 25th edition of the Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie. We were stunned to witness some of the best watches for men, introduced by top watch brands from Switzerland and Germany at the recently held show in Geneva.
They may seem unwanted, thanks to their heavy price tags. But men with money would not think twice before swiping their credit cards for them. The Nixie Machine Clock, designed by Frank Buchwald, is one such example that costs close to $27,000 (approx INR 16, 74,000). With only 12 pieces in the world, the unique watch sports nixie tubes flashing the time with neon lights.
And if f you thought the Nixie Machine Clock was expensive, how about owning this $75,000 (approx INR 46,60,000) Armill bracelet designed by well-known brand Pininfarina. Setting the wearable technology bar high with its exclusive diamond studded and gold plated body, the ultra elite bracelet is a must have luxury statement for those with overflowing bank balances.
