The Best Swimming Pools On The Planet

At their best, hotel swimming pools are theatres of relaxation, the aquatic stage for cooling bodies and warming romances, where time floats on impossibly clear water. Nothing signals the start of a holiday like the first dive, when we shrug off the strain of the journey and quotidian concerns to reemerge somewhere else, preferably completing the transformative plunge with the first of several poolside cocktails.

The Tech-Infused $15 Million Superyacht

The award-winning Adastra launched in 2012 is an effort by Shuttleworth Design to create an upscale and comfortable yacht that fit the needs of an experienced (and extravagant) voyaging family.

Check out photos of this gorgeous, one-of-a-kind vessel, built for the adventurous and experienced sailor.
