Dive & Relax
IN THE DEEP BLUE SEA 20
By Patricia Schweizer I Uwe Herzog Translation Louise Mawbey I Mark S. Kennedy
From above, the island is reminiscent of a “green banana” lying on the glistening surface of the Indian Ocean: Dhonakulhi, which has an area of 70 hectares and belongs to the Haa Alif Atoll in the north of the Maldives. The ocean shimmers magically in all shades of blue and turquoise, while the leaves of the palms sway gently in the wind. And in the midst of all this is the Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa. Luxury Life MAGAZINE has taken a look at it for you.
从空中看过去，神仙珊瑚岛 (Dhonakulhi)就像是一根“绿色香 蕉”放置在印度洋波光粼粼的海面 之上。这个小岛面积为70公顷，是 马尔代夫北部哈阿里夫环礁(Haa Alif Atoll)的一部分。印度洋仿佛变 魔术般融汇了各种色调的蓝色和绿 松石色，与风中温柔摇曳的棕榈树 相映成趣。海德维沙滩Spa度假村 (Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa) Hotel
Multi-coloured butterflyfish, anemonefish and surgeonfish as well as eagle rays are at home in the reefs just off Dhonakulhi and they lure hobby divers from all over the world to visit their habitat. This native inhabitants of the atoll radiate beauty and grace.
就位于这样一个如梦似幻的环境中。 《奢华生活杂志》将带您领略该项目 的风采。
They greet their guests with a joyful dance, dazzling onlookers with all the colours of the South Seas. As soon as I arrive with the seaplane transfer from Malé, I marvel at the giant „fish lamp“ in the Hideaway Beach Resort reception, which hovers above our heads as if symbolising the island. Water is the central element of the resort – this not only applies to the ever-present sparkling of the Indian Ocean but also to the individually designed villa pools and the unfailingly beautiful bathrooms. From the oval-shaped, radiant white designer bathtub,
神仙珊瑚岛附近的海礁之中，它们栖息的海底家园 吸引了来自世界各地的潜水爱好者。在这片珊瑚岛 上生活着美丽而优雅的土著居民。他们用欢快愉悦 的舞蹈迎接客人的到来，那绚烂缤纷的南太平洋色 彩让人目眩神迷。我到达马累后乘坐水上飞机来到 了这片优美的小岛。海德维沙滩度假村迎宾处超大
which entices me to take my first relaxing bath in the middle of
the half-open bathroom of our beach villa, my gaze wanders to
the infinity pool and then far out to sea, all the way to the
seemingly endless horizon.
The resort has a total of 103 beach and ocean villas in eight
different categories: starting with the smaller „Sunset Beach“
villas with teak flooring and a terrace, followed by the „Beach
Residences“ with a plunge pool and culminating in the 700 m²
引着我钻进去享用一次舒适的沐浴。从这里向外凝 望，可以看到窗外的无边际游泳池，进而远眺到远 方的大海，最后停留在无垠无界的地平线之上。 度假村中共有103套别墅，有的位于海滩上，有的 深入大海之中，共有8种房型：按照面积从小到大 的顺序：落日海滩(Sunset Beach)别墅有着精美 的木地板和大露台，海滩宅邸(Beach Residences) 面积为700 m2，配有瀑布游泳池，家庭别墅(Family Villas)中则有迷人的花园和超大无边际游泳池。每 栋海洋别墅均配有私家无边际游泳池，外观为传统 乡村风格建筑，点缀着实木元素，灰白色的墙壁， 透过大玻璃窗可以欣赏到绝美壮观的海景。相比之 下，假日宫殿(Hideaway Palace)则更具有南太平 洋住宅的特色，用家俬和装饰打造出一栋栋渔夫小 屋，围绕在四季豆轮廓的泳池周围。每栋别墅都仿 佛是一座小宫殿，面积达到1,420 m2。所有泳池别 墅均提供24小时管家服务，确保满足宾客的所有 需求。
清晨，我首先在海边的玛特法鲁(Matheefaru)餐 馆享用了一顿丰盛的早餐。这里的自助菜品非常精 品，更有马尔代夫首屈一指的服务，被誉为岛上五 大餐厅之一。这里除了自助，还有菜品设计现代化
„Family Villas“ with a magnificent garden and a sizeable infinity
pool. The ocean villas all have their own infinity pool – and
again feature a somewhat traditional, country house design with
wooden elements, chalky-white walls and large glass panels which
grant a stunning view of the ocean. In contrast, the „Hideaway
Palace“ villa resembles a separate „South Sea village“ – with
an ensemble of lodges modelled on fishermen‘s huts grouped
around the kidney-shaped pool and boasting a living area of
1,420 m². A 24-hour butler service in all the pool villas ensures that guests never want for anything. In the morning I enjoy a delicious breakfast in the beachside „Matheefaru“ restaurant, whose sophisticated buffet creations and first-class service are amongst the best in the Maldives – one of the 5 restaurants on the island that offer a variety of dishes from modern à la carte cuisine and Teppanyaki style to romantic candle-light dinner under the stars. The day goes on
各异的潜水点，保证让您过足瘾。 当我还在斑斓的珊瑚礁中流连时，其他度假村的客 人们兴趣勃勃地进行着他们的爱好：钓鱼。每个人 都“武装”着钓竿和以多彩羽毛制成的鱼饵，等在 水边，静候鱼儿上钩。在神仙珊瑚岛，“渔夫” 们无需等候太久，北梭鱼或者鲹鱼就会咬饵上 钩，包括很多让垂钓者欣喜若狂的大家伙。对于

diving and professional photo safaris in the spectacular under-
water world surrounding Dhonakulhi. 41 diving spots are located
in the neighborhood of the resort.
As I explore the beauty of the reefs, other guests at the resort
pursue their own passion – fly fishing. „Armed“ with a fishing
rod and bait made up of multi-coloured feathers, they stand up
to their knees in the water and wait for the catch of the day. On
Dhonakulhi, it usually does not take long for a bonefish or a giant trevally to bite – including heavyweights that set the hearts of every angler racing. And a real highlight is the moonlight fishing tour. In accordance with long-standing tradition, the anglers take their boats out to sea while the sun is setting and return later with their catch – mainly snapper, tuna and wahoo. After my dive, during which I encounter several majestic manta rays as well as fascinating giant clams and inquisitive turtles, I

After lunch, I immerse myself in a world of complete relaxation
and, in the Hideaway Spa & Beauty Palace, I enjoy a wonderful hot stone massage, followed by a beauty treatment that exudes fragrances of frangipani and honey. The spa also offers products from the beauty brand NATURA BISSÉ, one of the most precious ones in the world. A sunset tour in a Dhoni adds the finishing touches to the day, and the ocean bathes in the last warm rays of the sun as I enjoy champagne and sumptuous canapés. Later, back on dry land, I lose myself in my thoughts once more, accom-panied by a glass of the house cocktail in the popular Sunset Pool Café, before the stars above the Hideaway also retire for the night.

Breguet Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097 Breguet’s latest creation, the Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097, pays tribute to the “souscription” and “tact” watches made by Abraham-Louis Breguet in the late 18th century. Like them, its mechanism reveals the bridges, wheels, escapement, barrel and various other parts that are normally placed beneath the plate. The small offset dial at 12 o’clock – another characteristic of the great master’s legendary “tact” watches – on the new Tradition 7097 model is overlapped by a retrograde seconds segment promoting optimal readability. Exalting the brilliant, visionary spirit of Abraham-Louis Breguet, this exceptional creation not only honours the past but also looks firmly to the future with particularly innovative technical characteristics. Witness the inverted straight-line lever escapement with silicon horns and the silicon Breguet overcoil balancespring – both serving to guarantee exceptional rating precision.

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse „La Finale“ The curtain rises on an icon! Bugatti is celebrating the 450. and final Veyron,
the fastest production supercar in the world whose performance has captivated
legions of fans around the world since its launch ten years ago. The world
première of the final Veyron will mark the culmination of an unprecedented
chapter in automotive history. The development of the Bugatti Veyron represented one of the greatest technical and engineering challenges ever overcome in the automotive history. At the time, Bugatti developers were faced with
four key specifications: the car had to transfer more than 1,000 PS onto the
road, achieve a top speed in excess of 400 km/h, accelerate from 0 to
100 km/h in less than three seconds and – the biggest challenge of all – still
be suitable for ‘driving to the opera’ in comfort and style. The Veyron is limited
to 450 units, which have now all been sold.

Living the luxury dream By Sara Musinowski
The art of living involves being able to enjoy what life has to offer. Oscar Wilde once announced unapologetically, “Let me be surrounded by luxury, I can do without the necessities.” The future owners of one of the swiftest sports cars in the world, the Lamborghini “Murciélago”, can consider themselves lucky. The car’s name translates as “The Bat” (it was named after a legendary Spanish fighting bull) and it has been produced by the vehicle manufacturer Lamborghini (Audi AG) since 2001 as a limited edition. This car is a fitting complement to Villa Rieden, a magnificent property on Lake Zurich in Switzerland, as well as a modern hacienda on the Spanish Costa Blanca, which boasts an extensive sea view and a pool that Hollywood stars have bathed in. A lifetime’s dream can therefore come true – two villas in top locations and a sophisticated sports car. Villa Rieden and Villa Costa Blanca are both properties from the same Swiss owner. The class and horsepower of his car are also reflected in his exclusive taste in real estate: luxury features, unobstructed lake and sea views, state-of-the-art electronics and landscaped grounds. Both properties and the sports car are now on sale. For more details visit www.premier-suisse-estates.com 54

TheofIcon a Statesman 领袖风范
By Michael S. Hamilos Translation Mark S. Kennedy
To the well-disposed aficionado, the connection between Winston Churchill and cigars has certainly been obvious for a long time. The British Prime Minister was firstly a gifted cigar-smoker and secondly he gave his name to a cigar format that still exists today. The Cuban brand “Romeo y Julieta” even named one of its cigars after him.
Then, eight years ago, a minor sensation occurred. Churchill’s grandson entered into a business relationship with Davidoff. Since then, there have been cigars with the official blessing of the Churchill family. And although these cigars were rolled by the best “torcedores” at Davidoff, they didn’t sell. The reason? The marketing for these cigars left much to be desired, because the relationship between Winston Churchill and the well-known high quality of Davidoff was, to put it simply, only known really to a small group of cigar-buyers.
对于见多识广的雪茄迷们而言，温 斯顿·丘吉尔和雪茄之间的关系可 谓源远流长。这位英国首相是一 位“天生异禀”的雪茄狂人，他的 名字已经成为雪茄的一个代号，保 存至今。古巴品牌罗密欧与朱丽叶 (Romeo y Julieta)就以这位英国 首相的名字命名了一款雪茄。
八年前，雪茄界掀起了一股小波澜：丘吉尔的 孙子与大卫杜夫共创雪茄事业。之后，大卫杜 夫雪茄就成为受到丘吉尔家族钦点的品牌。尽 管这些雪茄是由最优秀的卷雪茄工在大卫杜夫 工厂中卷制而成，但并不出售。原因在于这些 雪茄的营销工作还有待加强，虽然人人皆知温 斯顿·丘吉尔的大名以及大卫杜夫的卓越品 质，但两者之间的关系，却只有一小部分雪茄 买家知道。 鉴于此，为了拓展影响，这个目前在市场中非
So this was reason enough for the marketing strategists of the
currently very active Basle cigar house to go over the books and
to prepare a not entirely unexpected but highly spectacular
re-launch even for cigar fans.
They went back over Davidoff’s past strengths: the most exclusive tobaccos, a high rolling art and the golden-white classical Davidoff appearance. The result is a truly great cigar, which we were able to test exclusively on the occasion of the Dominican Procigar Festival in February 2015 – meaning before its official, worldwide launch in April. The unanimous opinion of all kinds of aficionados was that it is a very successful product which makes a clear statement as people can now loudly and clearly come out in favour of the Davidoff brand again. Sometimes, one sign of this is the cigar ring which has remained in the classical golden-white Davidoff look and which shows the image of Winston Churchill.
Sir Winston Churchill
Churchill was one of the most prominent politicians who was seen almost exclusively with a cigar. Even 50 years after his death in 1965, people in political circles still tell anecdotes about the passionate smoker who is alleged to have literally made his allied partners incandescent with rage with his clouds

he encouraged to persevere against Nazi Germany in 1940, for example, he went down in history. Equally famous is his speech which he held in 1946 shortly after the end of the Second World War at the University of Zurich in which he was one of the first to broach the subject of the formation of the “United States of Europe”. The rich mixture of tobaccos from Nicaragua, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador (Wrapper) lends this line of cigars a very appealing smoking pleasure. The drawing strength was excellent in all formats tested and the rolling quality corresponds to the high Davidoff standard. While the Robusto seemed to me to be somewhat more aggressive initially, it took on more of a “nutty” taste after 15 minutes, so that it may generally be termed a mild-to-medium-strong cigar. It is contrasted by the Toro, which will be more for more practiced aficionados and will certainly also appeal to the odd Cuban cigar smoker. In

over 90 minutes, it is a cigar that changes its character slightly, yet all the time impresses with its intensity. Sir Winston Churchill would also have definitely enjoyed the new line of cigars from Davidoff. In spite of his excessive smoking and whisky drinking, he did not die until he was 91 and uttered one of the finest quotes for us cigar-lovers: â€œA passionate smoker who is always reading about the dangers of smoking to his health usually stops â€“ readingâ€?.

Christian Walker is an all-round talent: as an interior & energy designer he understands how to create spaces which harmonise perfectly with our spirit and the forces of nature. Customers from all around the world swear by the sensitive intuition with which Christian Walker transforms living spaces into personal sanctuaries. In his interview with Luxury Life MAGAZINE, he reveals the secrets behind a home which simply makes us happier. What do you think about when you enter someone else’s house for the first time? Christian Walker: “I automatically experience the room with all my senses. Which materials have been used, what are the furnishings like, what does it smell like, what music is playing in the background and how does one feel? Over the years I’ve learnt to understand a wide variety of styles and spheres. This is very important for my work as the goal of every interior & energy design consultation is that the clients feel comfortable in their spaces and the design is perfectly tailored to each individual.”
Intuition is one thing – are there also fixed rules for the ideal interior design? Christian Walker: “People often claim that beauty is a matter of taste. And of course, the surroundings must fit with the people who live within them. But at the same time there are also universally valid principles which apply to an environment optimised in terms
of aesthetics and energy. This is also the reason why a great many
famous buildings – such as cathedrals, design hotels, successful stores and restaurants – have thousands of people under their spell. The basic laws of beauty and charisma always work –
irrespective of whether one is conscious of this or not. If you
understand these principles you can apply them to any space.”
As an interior designer you experiment a lot with colours – what colours are particularly good for us? Christian Walker: “Colours are a wonderful thing. You can see 60

at its best
The wonderful blaze of colour in the spring or a snowy land-
scape under a bright blue sky are also virtually unparalleled in
their beauty. As colours make a strong impact, it’s very important
that they are perfectly tailored to the inhabitants and the living area itself. Again, principles derived from Mother Nature are useful. For the large areas, like the floors and walls, I initially like
to work with neutral colours, such as white, brown and grey –
and with natural materials, such as wood and stone. They give
a space a timeless quality and provide an excellent “backdrop”
for colourful pictures, carpets, curtains, cushions, flowers, crystal,
glassware and vases. Which colours are suitable in each parti-
cular case depends on the people living in the space and the overall picture as a whole. But there are also generally valid rules for this as well. For example, shades of red stimulate a
zest for life and encourage activity, shades of blue promote
intuition and are very calming …”
How do you find out which furnishings fit to each particular homeowner? Christian Walker: “First of all I produce hand-drawn sketches

also use 3D visualisation techniques in order to help the client

As each interior & energy design project is unique and is intended to underline the individuality of the client, items of furniture are often designed from scratch and custom-made. I always apply the principles of sacred geometry and the golden ratio to this process. The golden ratio is familiar to us from paintings and photography.

您在什么地方感觉最舒服？ 克里斯汀·沃克：自然是在水边了。水能够提 供一种神奇的能量，只要置身于湖畔或者海边 就会让我感到快乐。幸运的是，我居住的地方 距离苏黎世湖只有5分钟的路程。每天早晨我都 会在湖畔练瑜伽，为即将到来的一天做准备。 但我在山川之中也非常自在，因为我是在阿尔 卑斯山区长大的。冬季到来之时，我们会到高 山上的度假公寓中居住。对我而言，这是一个 宁静而纯粹的世界，仿佛有魔力一般，能够为 我带来强大的能量。由于我偏爱瑞士山间小屋 式风格，因此我的很多项目都位于山区之中， 对此，我觉得非常的幸运。我喜欢妆点山峦之 中的空间。当然了，我在尤瑞肯(Uerikon)的家

A GUARDIAN ANGEL
FOR YOUR DIET By Uwe Herzog Translation Louise Mawbey I Mark S. Kennedy
Philip Hagenbuch I Founder of nutrition unsealed
A small glass of champagne here, an oyster there, a bit of caviar or simply the homemade ravioli at our favourite Italian restaurant – who can refuse? Unfortunately, it is often the most delicious treats in parti-cular which can cause excess weight, intolerances or allergies. It is therefore great to have a “guardian angel” such as Philip Hagenbuch at your side. The nutrition expert understands your weak points and sets your eating and drinking habits back on the right track again.
When, according to mythology, the ancient Greek god Hades
abducted the beautiful Persephone and took her to the under-
world, he did not realise what disastrous consequences this
would have. Demeter, Persephone’s mother and “goddess of
the harvest”, was so devastated by her loss that she neglected
her sacred duties: corn was left to rot in the fields and people starved – until Zeus, the god of thunder, commanded Hades to finally let the beautiful Persephone free again … Today, grain is being grown more widely than ever before. Wheat in particular is on the rise, with a global cultivated area of more than 200 million hectares. But more and more people are suddenly becoming intolerant to bread. Why is this? This time, the fault does not lie with a Greek god of the underworld
杯香槟、一个牡蛎、一点鱼子酱或者简 单的意式饺子，谁能拒绝这样的美食诱 惑呢？遗憾的是，这些可口的美味，容 易成为超重、肠胃不适或过敏的“罪魁 祸首”。如果能有营养师菲利普·哈根 布赫(Philip Hagenbuch) 这样的“守 护天使”相伴左右，就再好不过了。 他了解您的弱点，将会帮您调整饮食 习惯，使其重返正确的轨道。
了整个世界。直到众神之王宙斯命令哈迪斯，让美 丽的帕尔塞福涅重新获得自由… 如今，谷物的种植面积远超以往。特别是小麦，全 球种植面积已经超过2亿公顷。但与此同时，却有 越来越多的人无法享用谷类制品。为什么？这次就 不能怪罪希腊神话中的冥王了，因为导致很多人过 敏的元凶，是谷物中的麸质。虽然这种蛋白是谷物
but with gluten – a protein that has actually been contained in
grain since time immemorial. “However, the make-up of the
corn has changed in the last few years,” explains the Swiss
nutrition consultant Philip Hagenbuch. “To make bread rise more
when it is baked, wheat now contains a lot more gluten than it
used to. This can result in intolerances.” What starts with bread also applies to high-calorie ingredients. They often hide unnoticed in foods that you really would not expect to find them in. As coach Philip Hagenbuch tells us, “With any diet or dietary change, it is therefore extremely important to first take a very close look at the person’s individual eating habits in order to find out what does them good – and what they would be better to do without.”
高卡路里食材也和面包一样，麻烦多多。但很多存 在于食物中的问题，往往会被人们所忽略，我们压 根不会想到它们正在影响着我们的身体。正如菲利 普·哈根布赫所说：“任何时候，当人们改变饮食 时，首先要对个人的饮食习惯进行仔细的研究，这 一点非常重要。只有这样才能找出哪些食品对他们 身体有好处，哪些食物并不适合他们。” Health
Nutri As more and more people react sensitively to sugar, grain or
dairy products, personal nutritional advice is the “magic key” to
good health and one’s ideal weight. “There are, of course, a few
general nutritional rules that everyone should bear in mind. But
each person also has their own very individual ‘tolerance profile’,
for example as a result of a particular genetic make-up or eating
habits begun during childhood,” explains Philip Hagenbuch.
The diet expert, who advises customers from all around the world
to help them combat their own personal “problem zones”,
knows what he is talking about. In his younger days, Philip Hagenbuch suffered from dietary problems himself. The food
expert was more than 20 kilogrammes overweight, which he
only managed to lose permanently as a result of a well-planned,
healthy eating pattern. “I therefore fully understand the problems
of my clients, as well as their fears and their often desperate
attempts to diet, and I can put myself in their position.”
以设身处地地站在他们的角度看待问题。” 如今的菲利普·哈根布赫，生活忙碌而充实，充满 了幸福感。由于已经战胜了多余体重，获得了标准 身材，因此他对“健康饮食”的概念有着切身的体 会，希望将自己的心得和知识传播开来，造福更多 人。他首先在一家著名的瑞士诊所中接受了营养厨 师的培训，通过了烘焙师、甜点师和营养餐培训的 考试。接下来又在一家食品公司中就职，负责采 购、保存和分销肉类、鱼类和蔬菜。他曾用几个月 的时间周游了半个世界。在美国、亚洲、南美和中
Today, Philip Hagenbuch is very active and extremely happy.
He has reached his “ideal weight” and, since winning the battle
against his own extra pounds, he has furthered his knowledge
of “healthy eating” and now passes this know-how on, to the benefit of others. After training as a chef in a renowned Swiss clinic – as well as completing further training courses as a
baker, confectioner and dietary cook – Philip Hagenbuch first worked in a food company, where he was responsible for the
purchasing, storage and distribution of meat, fish and vegetables. He also spent several months travelling half way around the world: in the USA, Asia, South America and the Middle
East he observed food production methods and regional eating
habits – always on the lookout for ideal solutions for weight
issues and metabolic disorders. He also developed his language skills during this time and now offers consultation sessions in English, Spanish or his native German language.
His concept is based on healthy eating and losing weight in an
enjoyable way. Philip Hagenbuch’s customers find out how this works at first hand. After an initial consultation session where
habits and intolerances are identified, the client and the coach
first set off on a relaxed shopping trip. At markets and in specialist stores, the professional dietary cook puts together a customized shopping basket with contents that are appetising
他的想法就是：健康饮食，快乐减重。菲利普·哈 根布赫的客户可以直接体会到他工作的效果。在首 次咨询的过程中，营养师判断客户的习惯方式和不 耐受食物，然后与客户一起，进行一次轻松的购物 之旅。他们将来到市场和专业营养食品店中，专业 的营养厨师会准备好一个定制的购物篮，里面装着 各种美味可口、绝不会对身体有损害的食物。如果 客户需要，营养师还会与客户共同准备三餐，甚至 可以在客户自己的厨房中，与全家人共享烹饪健康 美食的乐趣。如果您没有足够的时间自己料理食 物，您的私人营养师还会准备一份特别推荐菜单， 您出门在外时，就可以在其他地方 — 比如餐厅中 享用。 菲利普·哈根布赫补充道：“在我建议的饮食规划 中，只选择新鲜的食材。”菲利普认为，对于那 些“瘦身奶昔”、能量饮料或者其他所谓方便又有 效的产品，要必须坚决说不，但对美味的甜点或其 他美味的“口舌之福”，倒也不必过于抗拒。他解 释道：“这里的关键不只是配料、配料的数量和比 例，准确的搭配和正确的时间也是重要的因素。” 比如，身体会有自己的生理周期，身体在一天中不
but not harmful for the body. If requested, the client and the
coach also prepare the meals together – or this can even be
done with the whole family together in the client’s own kitchen. For those who do not have much time to cook for themselves, the personal coach provides special suggested menus which can also be enjoyed away from home, e.g. in a restaurant. “With the diet plans I recommend, I work exclusively with fresh products,” adds Philip Hagenbuch. For Philip, so-called “diet shakes”, powder drinks and other supposedly curative convenience products are a no-go. Nevertheless, clients do not have to do without delicious desserts or a range of other indulgences.
即使您没有足够多的时间进行健身，菲利普·哈根 布赫的饮食减肥法也同样会让您获得成功。因为在 他的饮食规划概念中，只有10%-20%涉及到身体 运动。这位私人营养师告诉我们：“在对抗超重 的战斗中，成功的因素有80-90%
习惯。这些饮食习惯也是超重的主要原因。”放弃 错误食物，选择正确食物，不仅会有减重的效果， 也会改善肌肉组织，强化骨骼和关节。
As Philip Hagenbuch explains, “It is not only about the ingredients
but, primarily, also about the quantities and their proportions,
the exact composition and the right timing.” For example, the
biorhythm or the body’s differing ability to burn off fat at various
times of day also plays a significant role.
Those who do not have a lot of time for fitness activities are
also in very good hands with Philip Hagenbuch. Only 10-20
percent of his diet concept is based on physical activity. “80-90
percent of a successful battle against excess pounds is fought
on the eating habits front. These habits are the main cause of
excess weight,” the personable coach tells us. Switching to the
right foods not only causes weight to tumble off but also tones
muscle tissue and strengthens bones and joints. Philip Hagenbuch also advises his discerning clients in connection with the current in-topic of “superfood”. “Antioxidants
(i.e. substances which promise to prevent cellular damage) as food supplements can make sense under certain circumstances. But this has to be decided on a case-by-case basis. On no account should you blindly consume just any product, even if its properties are fundamentally positive. It is better to lose weight at a moderate pace and with a lasting effect, relying on fresh, healthy foods instead of putting your trust in a miracle product.” And our editor is convinced that, with a personal diet “guardian angel” like Philip Hagenbuch, you’ll definitely stay healthy. email@example.com I www.facebook.com/nutritionunsealed Health

Pleasant lighting, chic design features, elegant screens and exclusive furniture produce a stylish atmosphere on both floors of the lounge, which appear to have been created for a 21st century fairy tale.

I hear the final call for my flight to Zurich. The outbound flight
was a joy. As I entered Business Class on the Boeing 787, I
was greeted by a glass of champagne – and moist towelettes,
handed to me by my “personal” steward. He introduced himself very politely in line with Arabian practice by briefly kneeling before me – not a sign of a lack of pride but a traditional custom. He handed me the menu which contains an abundant choice of meals, offering everything the heart desires. And the entertainment programme is also impressive. The personal onboard computer features an extensive range of films and games. A large selection of international magazines also helps to pass the time on board, and the journey “flew” by. Totally relaxed, I enjoyed my outbound journey in the extremely comfortable seats of the Dreamliner, whose Business Class makes you feel almost “at home”. My return journey is in another high-comfort aircraft – the Airbus 380. Although Business Class in this plane is not as “private” as in the Dreamliner, the A380 boasts impressive, spacious dimensions, which not only promise a great deal of legroom but also invite passengers to take a stroll to the cosy bar.

The very luxury heart of BANGKOK 曼谷香格里拉大酒店 By Patricia Schweizer I Uwe Herzog Translation Louise Mawbey I Mark S. Kennedy
It is one of the best hotels in Asia – the Shangri-La Bangkok, situated right in the heart of the Thai capital. The lights of the two groups of buildings of the 5-star luxury hotel are reflected magnificently in the water of the Chao Phraya, the „River of Kings“.
From the 802 rooms, including 72 exclusive suites, guests are trea-
ted to a spectacular view across the bustling metropolis of Bangkok,
which is home to eight million people. In the year 2011, the hotel
was extensively renovated and restyled at a cost of approximately
EUR 44 million. The health club and the Cantonese restaurant
Shang Palace were given a new look two years ago. And the
service is just as regal as the highly-polished atmosphere. Silk-wrapped decorative elements and refined teakwood features accentuate the tropical flair of the luxury hotel. And in the midst of it all is the „Horizon Club“, a „private“ refuge where executive travellers can enjoy extra special privileges in an area covering four floors and boasting its own lounge. The hotel‘s comprehensive health & leisure programme includes the award-winning „CHI, The Spa“ centre with its wide variety of treatments which are based on ancient Asian teachings, as well as two tennis courts, two pools and a spacious

Panacea FINDING PEACE & ENERGY WITH ‚BIG BUDDHA‘
Praana Main Swimming Pool
By Patricia Schweizer I Uwe Herzog Translation Louise Mawbey I Mark S. Kennedy
Paradise is close by – barely one hour’s flight from Bangkok, a few minutes’ journey driven by a private chauffeur through the dense green of the coconut palms and just one plunge away into the refreshing pool. And the name of this paradise is PANACEA Koh Samui, one of Thailand’s most exclusive villa resorts. An insider’s tip for all those who are looking for spectacular countryside, a wonderfully relaxing rest, top-class comfort and privacy. Luxury Life MAGAZINE has tested it out for you.
The shimmering surface of the water in the infinity pool merges
with the apparently endless horizon far beyond the luscious
green of the rain forest. Instinctively, I „switch down a few gears“,
my swimming strokes become more measured and I sense a
profound feeling of peace and strength within me. Arriving at the
PANACEA Koh Samui, Thailand‘s third largest island, is like stepping through a „gateway of light“ to find a completely different world to the one of appointments and stress that one left behind. 92
一个小时的飞机，换乘私家接机轿 车，穿过摇曳的椰子树林，在清澈如 镜的游泳池边上驶过，就来到了这片 世外桃源。欢迎来到苏梅岛帕纳西亚 (PANACEA)酒店，泰国最顶级的别 墅度假村之一。如果您理想的度假地 点必须有优美的乡村风光，能够让身心 得到最大限度的放松，同时还要具备顶 级舒适度和私密空间，这里就是您的理 想选择。请跟随《奢华生活》(Luxury Life)杂志，踏上世外桃源之旅。
帕纳西纳仿佛是一扇“穿越门”，门的那边是一 个完全不同的世界，走进去，世俗的烦扰和压力 就会一扫而光。
PANACEA – takes the name of the Greek „goddess of healing“. And the resort, situated on an impressive elevation in the north east of Koh Samui, really does promise a combination of harmony, comfort and guaranteed privacy. The harmony starts with the stunning 360° panoramic view, stretching from the gentle hills of the forest-covered headland, past the shoreline near Bophut with its giant Buddha, to the infamous Ko Pha Ngan island, which is renowned throughout the world for its legendary parties during the luminous full moon nights of the Gulf of Siam. Led by the multi award-winning architect and landscape designer
Kalya Master Bedroom
Bill Bensley, a premium class refuge has been created against an unspoilt and fascinating natural backdrop. Although the PANACEA has just five individual private villas, each one offers every luxury and comfort one could wish for. For example, the „Avasara“ Residence with its five suites has a name originating from ancient Sanskrit, which roughly translates as „opportunity“. And the 1,350 qm villa really does provide a great deal of opportunity for guests to enjoy the restful atmosphere – from the private pool, high vaulted ceiling to the romantic garden pavilion.
Purana Living Room
帕纳西亚 – 在希腊神话中是“治愈之神”。度 假村位于苏梅岛东北部一片风景优美的高地之 上，体现了和谐、舒适和私密性的完美结合。壮 观的360°全景风光首先让您体味到了这种和谐 之美。海岬处的山丘绿意盎然，线条起伏柔和， 视线从这里延伸，略过波普(Bophut)的大佛像和 附近的海岸线，一直延伸到远近闻名的帕岸岛 (Ko Pha Ngan)。这座岛屿也因为每个月都会在 暹罗湾举行的传奇满月派对而举世闻名。
Avasara Swimming Pool
The other exclusive residences in the resort offer similar levels of
luxury. They are all constructed from top quality woods in tradi-
tional Asian style and again have names that originate from
ancient Hindu scrolls: „Kalya“ („healthy/strong“) and „Purana“
(„stories“) each with 4 suites, „Atulya“ („unrivalled“) with 5 suites
– and finally „Praana“, the most luxurious of all the PANACEA
In ancient Sanskrit, „Praana“ means „vital force“ – and this is evident in all its manifestations in a total area covering an impressive 4,700 m². This residence, with no less than 6 exclusive suites, appears to be designed with royalty, heads of state and film stars in mind. „Praana“ villa boasts two infinity pools (25 m and

bottles, a steam room, a sauna and a massage area. There are
also rooms for billiards, poker or computer games, a „Kids
Club“ with a babysitting service and even a private cinema
with comfy leather armchairs and an extensive library of films.
After a few refreshing „welcome laps“ of the pool, I set off to
explore my new „home“. The villa provides ample space for families or groups of friends. But couples can also enjoy this Asian jewel of a hotel to the full, including its numerous amenities. To a large extent this is due to the resort‘s exclusive concept, which dispenses with facilities usually found at other hotels, such as public bars and restaurants. Instead, each villa has its own host and crew who ensure that guests do not want for anything. In „Praana“ villa alone, no

head chef of the KX Health Club in London, ensures that only
the best organically grown ingredients are used. The personalised menus take particular preferences and intolerances into account.
The traditional Thai dishes as well as the international meals

But first, after an excellent breakfast comprising fresh fruit, homemade biscuits and my favourite cereals chosen in advance, I head off to the private tennis court. Again, I am greeted by the spectacular panorama of the rain forest, which seem to have filled me with energy on my very first serve. Oops! With unexpected power I mishit a few balls and others are unstoppable, landing just in front of the baseline on my opponent‘s side of the court.

News & Previews Richard Mille opens a new boutique on Avenue Matignon. Richard Mille has chosen to pay tribute to his female clientele by opening a new boutique in the heart of one of Paris’ finest and most prestigious avenues, renowned for its many art galleries, elegant cafés and luxury boutiques. 17 Avenue Matignon will thus become the home of a new 200 m2 Richard Mille boutique imbued with cosy, voluptuous refinement. Here, everything fuses to create an ambience of mellow reverie and passion. The curved lines of the ceilings and walls contrast with the cold hardness of metal. The Macassar ebony display cases are suspended over broken glass. The cold lighting of the watch area dialogues with the soft, oblique light of engraved glass and warm wood. This subtle interplay culminates in the private salon, where the silky softness of Sophie Mallebranche’s cream metal perfectly complements the walls of the magnificent cellar containing 60 prestigious grands crus and a rare cigar collection, giving the visitor the exquisite feeling of being utterly at home.

Das Stue – quiet urban refuge within the heart of Berlin. Originally built in the 1930’s, Das Stue’s diplomatic legacy is evident in the heritage building’s stately architecture and modernist façade, designed by German architect Johann Emil Schaudt (1871-1957) and inspired by Danish classicism. Located in Berlin’s diplomatic quarter, Das Stue was renovated to invoke a calming ambiance, with open spaces and contemporary minimalist design. Star design Patricia Urquiola oversaw the artistic direction of the property’s public spaces, creating a striking yet cozy mélange of places where guests can lounge, including the muted couches and chairs in shades of yellow, rust, and grey in the hotel’s library. Based on Urquiola‘s concept, LVG Arquitectura S.L.P. outfitted the hotel’s 78 guestrooms in subdued modern decor that emphasizes polished surfaces and rich fabrics. The rooms are designed to recall the open spaces of villa environments, complemented by high ceilings, hardwood floors and views of the adjacent Tiergarten. www.das-stue.com

BEAST WITH DANGER OF ADDICTION By Renato Schweizer I Uwe Herzog Translation Mark S. Kennedy
Whenever people hear the roar of a Ferrari, they prick up their ears, go weak at the knees and their eyes widen in anticipation. A full three years after its launch at the Geneva Car Show, the Ferrari FF is still turning heads. Join us on a trip in the unique “family-friendly Ferrari” from Zurich to Monte-Carlo and experience with us the perfect combination of comfort and Formula 1 feeling.
无论何时，只要听到法拉利的怒吼， 人们就不由得双膝发软、停下脚步， 竖起耳朵，圆睁双目地期盼一睹“芳 容”。尽管在日内瓦车展首发至今已 整三年，但法拉利FF仍然赚足了回 头率。欢迎加入我们独一无二的“家 庭式法拉利之旅”，从苏黎世到摩纳 哥，一路纵享兼具一流舒适感和F1 方程式赛车般的狂野驾乘体验。
Grrrrr. It takes just a touch of the famous red button on the steering wheel to rouse the “beast” from its slumber. Grrrrr? That’s not right – you can’t put the sound of a genuine Ferrari into words! After all, this incredibly powerful, slightly throaty “symphonic sound”
就将这头“野兽”从沉睡中唤醒。轰？拜托，这是 法拉利，真正的法拉利，你怎么能用枯燥呆板的文 字描述它的声音？法拉利那无比强悍、略带嘶哑、 如交响乐般洪亮澎湃的声音，在整个汽车行业中再
is unlike anything else heard in the entire motor industry. You can
hear it in the Ferrari FF too. The slightest pressure on the accelerator
is all it takes for this “predator” to shoot across the tarmac, while the
air passing through the equaliser, exhaust manifold and stainless
steel twin tailpipes generates the rich frequencies that have made
the Ferrari name synonymous with a sporty driving experience.
People constantly stop and stare at us on our short excursion
from Zurich to Monaco: a four-seat Ferrari with a huge luggage
compartment that can easily accommodate all the paraphernalia
of a typical family – including golf clubs – surely such a thing
doesn’t exist? This is a reasonable question. After all, the concept
from Italian star designer Pininfarina for a “family Ferrari” breaks
with the tradition of compact racing machines from Maranello.
The car’s dimensions are majestic: at 4.91 metres in length and 1.95 metres in width, this is a luxury coupé that allows even tall passengers to stretch their legs. The four ergonomically styled seats that give the model its name (FF stands for “Ferrari Four”) are just as comfortable as you’d expect. The number four in the name also offers a clue regarding the powerful 4-wheel drive, something never seen before in the history of Ferrari. Shortly after leaving Zurich behind, the 660 HP of the car’s V12

top speed of 335 km/h, it hugs the tarmac securely. The 7-speed
gearbox with dual clutch is complemented by fine tuning: things
get serious in “Sports” mode, while “Comfort” mode sees the car
glide through the landscape with the litheness of a panther. Rain
mode is recommended for wet surfaces, while the snow and ice
setting will keep the wheels securely on track on slippery roads.
This is astonishing since, thanks to its unusually light “4RM”
drivetrain, the FF only weighs 1,880 kg when empty, very little for a genuine “Grand Tourismo” vehicle with a 6.3 litre engine. We reach Monaco like a bird in flight. Space is at a premium in the lower parts of Monte-Carlo, however, the extremely direct steering of the Ferrari FF means it can negotiate the narrow streets of this Mediterranean city with ease. As we check into the Hotel “Hermitage”, the bellboy seems amazed at how much luggage can be stowed behind the hatch door of the shooting break.
式，它就会像一头灵活的猎豹，轻盈跃行于山水之 间。雨天(Rain)模式适用于湿滑路面，冰雪模式则 让车轮牢牢地抓住滑溜溜的路面。由于采用了超轻 4RM动力传动系统，FF的净重只有1,880千克。 对于一辆搭载6.3升发动机、货真价实的豪华轿跑 (Grand Tourismo)而言，能够如此轻如雨燕，令 人钦佩不已。事实上，我们真的像燕子一样“飞” 到了摩纳哥。踏入蒙地卡罗南部地界，尽管这里是
Later, when we drive out to the legendary “Jimmyz Club” for a
cocktail, alert observers are clearly impressed with the seemingly
endless length of the bonnet and the extravagant interior: superior
upholstery on the doors and arm rests and the steering wheel
and handles in luxurious combination of precious wood and
carbon. This tailor-made version from Loro Piana exudes plenty
of playful Italian charm and is just one of several design variants.
In addition, the FF is also available with a range of customising
options that offer almost endless choices.
We give this “beautiful beast” another opportunity to roar one more
time before making our way back to Zurich the next day. My
companion is looking forward to a gentler homeward journey:
“Can you use Comfort mode this time please … and take things
a bit slower!” – “Slower? Sure!” But of course only insofar as
this is possible in a Ferrari. Grrrr …
FF，散发出富有趣味的意大利魅力，是该款车多个设计版 本之一。此外，FF还提供各种令人眼花缭乱的定制配置选 择。第二天，在折返苏黎世之前，我们又放开了这头“优美 野兽”的缰绳，让它狂飙驰骋了一段。不过我的搭档对回程 有着自己的期待：“这次能不能使用舒适模式，拜托...稍微 慢点儿！”“慢点儿？没问题！”我会的，不过这个“慢点 儿”肯定会是法拉利的标准。轰…

1000 Miles of Passion. If you want to experience Italy’s passion for fast, elegant cars, there is no more thrilling place than the Mille Miglia. With hundreds of thousands of spectators cheering drivers on, the long-distance race from Brescia to Rome and back was held from 1927 to 1957. Racers like Tazio Nuvolari, Rudolf Caracciola, and Stirling Moss – along with the Mille Miglia itself – became legends. The Mille Miglia was revived in 1977 and once again cheering fans line the roads. This exclusive book shows the spectacular 2014 race, which was photographed by René Staud and his team. The result is an enthralling documentation of this unique event and its fascinating cars, picturesque landscapes, and celebrity drivers like Jay Leno and Adrien Brody. www.teneues.com
Summer feeling with Gize mocktails. Summertime is also cocktail time. When the days get hotter and the evenings grow longer, you know it‘s time for light and refreshing cocktails. Everyone loves to see the colourful little umbrellas and exotic fruit on the edge of their glass containing a sweet and vibrant treat. And it is possible to leave out the alcohol without sacrificing any of the variety or satisfaction, for the times in which non-alcoholic cocktails were nothing more than an obligatory but unwanted offering at the bar are long since passed. Today, cocktails are also popular without alcohol, and have even earned their own name: mocktails. And these beverages are anything but boring. Just like cocktails, mocktails require an excellent mixer. Gize+, the gold-filtered luxury water from Canada with four inspired combinations – Lemon-Elderflower, Raspberry-Ginseng, Pear-Vinegar and Pineapple-Coconut – is the ideal choice. Thanks to the pleasant freshness and restrained sweetness of their elegant flavour combinations, the Gize+ varieties offer an excellent basis for mocktails with that certain something. Yet even when they are enjoyed straight on ice, they are sure to provide extraordinary satisfaction. An excellent tip for hot summer days is “Gize+ Lemon- Elderflower Green Tea on Ice” – a refreshing summer mocktail that can be prepared in a snap and which does not cause hangovers or bags under the eyes on the day after. Available at www.gize.com
