ooking for your ultimate summer getaway? Now is the best time to start planning, and here is a can’t-miss luxury package to book before it sells out. The Borgo Santo Pietro Group is offering a combined stay at its five-star luxury spa hotel in Tuscany and a private sailing experience in the Mediterranean Sea.

Welcome aboard Satori, a super yacht that has been transformed into a five-star boutique hotel, and is poised to take you on the summer trip of your dreams. Step foot onto the private charter yacht with your closest friends and family, and enjoy a luxury sailing experience like no other. Satori, which means sudden enlightenment in Buddhism, is exactly that— 136.15 feet of enlightenment, made of solid mahogany. The crew blends right into the cozy, intimate vibe of the boat, offering a warm welcome and impeccable service. Unlike other staff, these friendly faces are much more 154

than servers tending to your every need—they are a big part of what makes the journey so pleasant. Michelin star chef Andrea Mattei can satisfy all of your cravings with meals inspired by his restaurant Meo Modo at Borgo Santo Pietro. Whether you want a taste of the Mediterranean or a good old burger and fries, every plate is served cooked to perfection. And because eating like the royals can be so exhausting, why not take advantage of your own spa, right on board? Escape into the spa room and treat yourself to some of the many massages and facials offered around the clock. All treatments are done with Borgo Santo Pietro’s high-end luxury skincare products, Seed to Skin. The products are handmade at the estate’s laboratory in Tuscany, with ingredients sourced from its own organic farm. For the little ones on board—or the kid in all of us—Satori offers just about every water toy you could imagine. Jump into the crystal clear water and cruise around on a jet ski. Or if you want to work on your tan a little, soak up the sun while lounging on a pool float.
