NORTH ISLAND SEYcHELLES LUXURY PRIVATE ISLANDS

Some 30km from the main island of Mahé, Ile du Nord, or North Island, enjoys private isolation within the Inner Island group of the Seychelles. Luminous white beaches cosset a tropical interior of coconut palms and takamaka trees cradled between three granite outcrops, 110m to 180m in height, whose polished grey ramparts rise from the white sands and filigree reefs of the azure ocean. North Island is a sanctuary where natural habitats, long neglected, have been rehabilitated so that endangered Seychelles fauna and flora could be reintroduced and given a place to grow and thrive. On this floating paradise, 11 guest villas have been built from local materials reaped from the rehabilitation process, where luxury and simplicity mingle to form a signature architectural style we call ‘barefoot luxury’.

|6|

North Island is a place that unashamedly aims at providing the very best in privacy, location, accommodation, services, facilities and experience, yet has restored its environment to a place of verdant plenty – a Noah’s Ark afloat in warm tropical waters in colours of blue and aquamarine. The true essence of North Island is a rare encounter that is in harmony with the environment – one that touches and inspires the lives of all who walk her beaches, dive her waters and contemplate her beauty.

LUXURY PRIVATE ISLANDS

BAREFOOT LUXURY RIcHARD BRANSON’S NEcKER ISLAND Welcome to Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson’s private island paradise in the British Virgin Islands, a stunning and unspoilt area of the Caribbean. At 74 acres, Necker sits in turquoise waters surrounded by coral reefs and fringed with beautiful white sandy beaches.

In the past it’s been called barefoot luxury, but the feeling it aims to create when you arrive on island, whether it’s your first time or your 15th, is one of coming home; but a home where you don’t have to li a finger. You may well forget what ‘real life’ is like during your stay..

Necker Island is much more than just the sum of its individual parts. Necker is undoubtedly the definition of a luxury party island, but its version of luxury isn’t just about inviting beds, top class food, the latest activities and the best facilities, although you can of course expect all of these.

OWNER'S STORY There are many private islands in Maldives, but only very few of them are truly private, owned by one person. Velaa Private Island is such a case. The owner, Jiri Smejc, has spent countless weeks in Maldives both on holidays and while taking his business trips from Europe to Asia. The islands became his true passion: many of them being beautiful, but each of them coming short on some part of the visitor experience he valued. That's why he decided to build the Velaa Private Island. An island meeting his ideas what a luxurious private resort should be. An island keeping a real privacy for its guests but at the same time versatile enough to provide number of first-class enjoyment opportunities. Aer all, the owner is the one who will spend most time on the island and wants to enjoy it for years, not only for a week or two... ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN Velaa shares its name and its home with the generations of sea turtles that have inhabited the island for countless years. The colours and paerns of a turtle shell make up subtle nuances in the design, while from a broader aerial view, Velaa’s exclusive over-water villas resemble the head of a turtle with the island forming the body. Designed by Czech architect Petr Kolar, the overall design concept is contemporary, yet intimate, with Maldivian nuances.

Whether you come as an adventurer, an explorer, a researcher or just a guest in search of peace and quiet, Tetiaroa will certainly remain engraved in your memory forever; an Eden outside of time, the perfect antidote to the stresses of the modern world.

Alinea, run by the talented Grant Achatz has retained its crown as the best restaurant in the world, the annual poll by luxury magazine Elite Traveler revealed.

Achatz and his business partner Nick Kokonas opened Alinea in 2005, and it quickly became one of America's must-visit restaurants. Having a three-star Michelin star qualifies a restaurant as a place worth traveling to, just to eat at.

The eatery, which is Chicago’s only three-Michelinstarred restaurant, is the brainchild of culinary prodigy Grant Achatz and features taffy balloons, edible tablecloths and cinnamon bark chopsticks.

Achatz's culinary origins, however, are surprisingly humble. He first started cooking when he was a kid, helping his mom and dad at their diner in Michigan.

The Roca brothers' passion for cooking was initially kindled in Can Roca, the establishment their parents manage in Taialà, a neighbourhood lying on the outskirts of Girona.

EL cELLER DE cAN ROcA SPAIN

It is where they grew up, amid the hubbub of dishes, pots and pans and clients. The bar was their living room, their playground, where they did their homework, watched television... whence the aroma of the stews generously, simply and honestly prepared by their mother, waed in. El Celler is a free-style restaurant, commied to the avant-garde, but still faithful to the memory of different generations of the family's ancestors dedicated to feeding people. El Celler de Can Roca's commitment to cuisine and to the avant-garde, and its link to academia, has led it to defend the dialogue between the countryside and science, a total dialogue. cellercanroca.com

With its automatic Calibre 37, developed entirely in its own manufactory, Glashüe Original has once again set new standards. Owners are enthusiastic about these features, whether in the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date or the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date: the column wheel chronograph with central stopsecond, 30-minute and 12-hour counters and, as a crowning feature, a flyback mechanism. The small seconds, the display for the impressive 70 hour power reserve and Glashüe Original’s signature Panorama Date enhance the pleasure owners find in these superb timepieces. www.glashuee-original.com

Patek Philippe For decades, split-seconds chronographs that allow lap times to be measured without interrupting an ongoing event time measurement have ranked among the most coveted Patek Philippe specialties. That was already the case in the 1920s, when the manufacture not only presented its first wristwatch chronometer but added the rarapante function right from the start. Thus, collectors, aficionados, and enthusiasts of artisanally craed timekeeping instruments are eager to welcome the new Ref. 5370 split-seconds chronograph. Not least because its elaborate inner life ticks beneath a genuine black enamel dial. www.patek.com 24

Blancpain Blancpain is returning to Only Watch with a unique Villeret Traditional Chinese Calendar that features both a Gregorian calendar and a traditional Chinese calendar with double-hour indication, day, month with indication of leap months, signs of the zodiac, as well as the five elements and the 10 celestial stems.

To mark the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Portugieser watch family, IWC has decided to pay fiing tribute to a lile known yet wonderfully aractive version of the original Portugieser with the new Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “75th Anniversary”. The design of this limited anniversary edition is almost identical to that of its predecessor, while the act of manually winding the movement once a week is a pleasing ritual. www.iwc.com

This one-off creation in red gold is fied with a black grand feu enamel dial featuring a chapter ring with applied gold hour-markers, as well as indications that are painted in gold before firing.

It's finally here. And indeed, it fully embodies the spirit of BIG BANG. It is Hublot's pure DNA. It is the fusion of the unique All Black concept invented by Hublot with the famous Spirit of Big Bang watch with a tonneau case, now available in an All Black version, in a limited edition of only 500 numbered pieces, as is always the case for Hublot's All Black series.

Iris van Herpen

Elie Saab

Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen revealed  3D-printed garments and accessories “grown” with magnets during her ready-to-wear show in Paris. “Magnetic Motion” was the title of the Dutch designer’s show and it was inspired by the Large Hadron Collider aer she visited CERN (The world’s largest particle physics laboratory)  in Switzerland earlier this year.

Elie Saab’s model army walked to a military beat – the designer exchanged his signature fairytale romance for something darker, harder and tougher, “the way of the woods”, we were told. So structure and gilded buons were all key, as was a khaki dark colour palee on trailing capes and stand-up straight collars. There was lots of fur trim on coats made in mind for protecting you from whatever the forest may have on offer hiding among it.

The task faced by the development team was to create the super sports car for the next decade with a highly efficient and powerful hybrid drive. Developing the car from scratch, appropriately beginning with a sheet of white paper, allowed the team to come up with a no-compromise concept.

The entire car was designed around the hybrid drive. The 918 Spyder therefore demonstrates the potential of the hybrid drive to a degree never seen before: the parallel improvement of both efficiency and performance without one being at the cost of the other. This is the idea that has made the Porsche 911 the most successful sports car in the world for 50 years. In short, the 918 Spyder will act as the gene pool for the Porsche sports cars of the future.

ARE YOU FL

PRIVATE JETS If so you probably know a thing or two about managing your money and generating wealth. You’re likely highly successful and don’t feel bad about spending on your comfort and enjoyable travel because you’ve earned it. Even though you can probably afford the private flights, it’s important to realize that you might be overpaying for them. That’s right, that top quality service that you’re enjoying, could be had for less by joining a simple membership program. What is a Private Flight Membership? Private flight memberships are programs you join to get exclusive deals on flights around the world. They will grant you specific savings on certain flights, and you’ll likely get a discount on each and every flight that you take within their network. As long as you travel frequently, and you join a large enough club, you can save a substantial amount of money by going with this option.

| 44 |

Take a Look at Potential Savings Take out a receipt from your last private jet trip and figure out how much you spent to travel the way that you did. Now take that receipt and compare it to the costs that you should expect from a popular membership flight from a company like JetSmarter. Almost immediately you’ll notice that you paid more money than you had to for the flight. This wouldn’t be a big deal if you only did it once a year, but if you like to travel privately on a regular basis you might be throwing away more money than you would like to admit throughout the year. Save Time with a Flight App When you sign up for a membership with a program you oen gain access to useful tools like an app, or additional perks. These programs will help you find the flights that you need in less time and they will simplify traveling privately. Geing a good private jet doesn’t have to be complicated and you don’t have to pay more than you need to either. Take a look at a service like JetSmarter to see what you could potentially be saving. With the app you’ll be able to schedule flights with the press of a buon and you will spend mere moments finding the right option for your need.

U FLYING 

SMARTER? Take More Trips Each Year When you rely on JetSmarter you’ll save money throughout the year and you’ll be able to afford more frequent flights or even beer trips when you reach your destination.

You’ll find yourself booking more trips throughout the year, you’ll be able to connect with more friends and family members, and even save money with friends.

ARE YOU THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO ENJOYS THE BEST NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE DOING? DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL IN cOMFORT AND ROUTINELY TAKE A PRIVATE JET TO GET FROM PLAcE TO PLAcE? 

Save Money by Referring Friends If you have friends and family who like to travel with private flights as much as you do, you can save money with each referral that you make to the service as well. Referring a single friend will get you a free annual membership so you can enjoy all those perks without paying for them. Stop overpaying just to fly on private flights. I know how convenient and enjoyable it is to ride in your own private plane to your next destination, but that doesn’t mean you have to pay more than you should for the experience. Take a look at JetSmarter and what you could save off your next trip. The membership fee might seem steep at first, but when you consider how much you will save each and every year by having an active membership, it’s prey simple to see why you would want to do it. Get signed up today with JetSmarter and you can start saving money off flights you were going to take anyway. www.jetsmarter.com

BORN OF THE  SEABOURN ODYSSEY – THE FIRST IN A NEW cLASS OF SHIPS LUXURY CRUISERS

SEA Seabourn Odyssey is the first in a new-class of ships for Seabourn that accommodates just 450 guests in 225 luxury suites. Although, at 32,000 GRT, Seabourn Odyssey is more than triple the size of Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend, she was the smallest new ship being built by any major cruise line, and her guest capacity is just twice that of the smaller sisters, creating the highest spaceper-guest ratio in the industry. Seabourn Odyssey was built by the Italian company T. Marioi S.p.A., located in Genoa, Italy and named in Venice in June of 2009. On that occasion, the guests on board for the maiden voyage were all honored as the ship’s godparents, and a plaque with their names was permanently mounted on a wall inside the ship. Seabourn Odyssey was designed by the same architectural team, Petr Yran and Bjorn Storbraaten, who designed the original Seabourn ships.

Seabourn Odyssey’s 225 ocean-view suites are divided into 13 categories, with interior measurements from 295 to over 1,200 square feet. Ninety percent have private verandas, which add from 65 to over 350 square feet of additional private living space. Highlights in accommodations are the exceptional Wintergarden Suites, which have a private glassed-in Solarium with a soaking tub and a lounging bed. This suite also features a veranda that is bowed out, giving wonderful views long the side of the ship. The Signature Suites, located all the way forward on Deck 7, have over 900 square feet of inside space and a spectacular wrap-around veranda of 353 square feet. In addition to more larger suites, Seabourn Odyssey’s additional size is utilized to create more open deck space, and a variety of public rooms and dining venues.

THE BLUE TRAIN

WELCOME ABOARD THE BLUE TRAIN. YOUR UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN…

LUXURY RAILWAYS As time meandered from the 19th Century towards the dawn of the new era, a dream was born. A dream of harnessing steam technology to link Africa’s vast south to north, around the aweinspiring mountain ranges that dot the continent, through the apparently arid desert landscapes, over untamed savannah grasslands teeming with wildlife. From the Cape all the way to Cairo... all of this on parallel lines of tempered steel. It is from this dream that The Blue Train was born. Cairo was never to be, but the dreamers

persevered and The Blue Train now traverses South Africa and its breath-taking scenery in a manner that befits the mystique that has grown around it. Kings and presidents have indulged on this magnificent, moving five-star “hotel-on-wheels”. From love-struck honeymooners, to adulated celebrities. And even ordinary folk who romanticise about a life of spectacular luxury, a life that has seemed tantalisingly out of reach. www.bluetrain.co.za

DIAMOND S ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND

GRAFF UNVEILS ‘THE GOLDEN EMPRESS’, A SPEcTAcULAR 132-cARAT FANcY YELLOW DIAMOND

| 60 |

Graff Diamonds just released images of a new statement diamond to add to what is a very long list of diamonds that are among the largest and rarest in the world. Graff’s latest catch is being called “The Golden Empress,” a 132.55-carat Fancy Intense cushioncut yellow diamond. The diamond is set on a necklace with approximately 30 other yellow diamonds. Fancy colored diamonds are very popular these days as adornment and investment, because of their beauty and rarity. Only one in 10,000 diamonds discovered are classified as fancy colored. So it’s even rarer to find one a particular color, such as this yellow diamond.


WorldLuxuryDaily_Issue1_FebEdit.qxp_Layout 1 08/03/2016 11:01 Page 61

Laurence Graff, the founder of the international luxury diamond and jewelry firm that bears his name, purchased the 299-carat rough diamond that created The Golden Empress. It was unearthed from the Letšeng mine in the tiny southern African kingdom of Lesotho. “The potential to cra a diamond that could join its hall of noble, historic and world famous stones was a thrilling prospect,” Graff said in a statement.

The company then set out to study the rough to determine the best way to cut it and then set out to do the work. In addition to The Golden Empress, the rough yielded eight satellite diamonds, comprising six pear shape Fancy Yellow stones—the largest being 21.34 carats— and two brilliant round stones. www.graffdiamonds.com

EXPO 2017 ASTANA

EXPO 2017 WILL ESTABLISH KAzAKHSTAN AS A GLOBAL LEADER ON THE cHALLENGE OF FUTURE ENERGIES.

The theme for the upcoming Expo in Astana is “Future Energy.” The theme is aimed at finding ways to achieve qualitative changes in the energy sector, primarily for the development of alternative sources of energy and new ways of transportation. Finding sustainable energy supplies is a critical and growing global concern. The solution to these concerns ensures economic growth and improved social standards while reducing the burden on the environment.

will be transformed into thriving and first class integrated neighborhoods including an additional 700 residential units, as well as office, hotels, local markets, and civic and educational facilities.

Phase 1 or the “Expo Mode,” will see the design and construction of the exposition buildings including the central Kazakhstan Pavilion; Theme, Corporate and International Pavilions; as well as hotel, retail, art and performance spaces. The first phase will also include the design and construction of a series of buildings that will act as a “covered city,” which will include retail, residential and office spaces. Phase 1 will be completed by June 2017 to serve the Expo and its visitors. Phase 2 or the “Legacy Mode,” will finalize the first Third industrial Revolution community. The Expo buildings will be converted into an office and research park, aracting international companies and entrepreneurs. Expo parking and service zones

Each of the Expo buildings was designed to take advantage of their site location. For example, everything in the residential development, from the street grid rotation, the block size and the distribution of building mass was developed through a series of studies to reduce energy use, improve comfort levels (indoors and outdoors) and increase energy harvesting for each unit. Split into two phases, the 174 ha project will feature exhibition and cultural pavilions (118,620 sm); a residential development (686,000 sm); service areas including shopping, socio-cultural, educational and civic facilities; parks (72,000 sm); and parking.
