Huff Po Travel Dives Into Oliver’s Travels New Luxury Submarine Property
February 7, 2014
“Looking to take your relationship to a whole new level? Perhaps connect on a deeper plane?Meet Lovers Deep, a private luxury submarine in the Caribbean Sea “intended for couples who want to have a private night together submerged beneath the ocean waves.” For around $285,000 per night (and a two-night minimum stay), adventurous couples can shack up in a customized sub while fish swim past the window.If the deep sea isn’t enough to lift the ol’ “periscope” on its own, guests have the option of an “aphrodisiac tasting menu,” with dishes “including oysters, caviar and a decadent chocolate fondant with essence of pomegranate” designed to put you in the mood. Other options include a Barry White soundtrack, scattered rose petals, and free champagne on arrival via your choice of speedboat or helicopter.Unfortunately, the sub will only venture to depths of 650 feet, so the true mile low club remains out of reach. Then again, any vehicle going a mile down might risk offering sub par service.“All of our hand picked, luxury properties have something unique and quirky about them,” Oliver Bell, one of the brains behind the experience and the co-founder of Oliver’s Travels, a luxury travel agency, told the Daily Mail. “But Lovers Deep really stands out as one of our quirkiest yet.“We’re always fascinated by the colorful array of requests we get through our concierge service and are looking forward to creating bespoke packages for those wanting to join the Mile-Low Club with us.”Then again, if you “suffer from claustrophobia or a fear of fish,” Lovers Deep may not float your boat.” Read on Huffington Post.

Why Luxury Shouldn’t Be Left To Google Translate…
January 27, 2015
We recently received an intriguing email to our ever-ready PR department – a little coverage on our famous Lover’s Deep Submarine from a Dutch website concentrating on luxury experiences. Curious to see what they had to say about us, and one trip to Google Translate later, we were left with this:
“You will already have not bothered by rain to spoil the fun , but maybe the price tag of €234,000 is well on the stomach.
It is natural for the good forbid mortal who is not awake.
TopluxE thinks he has the solution. What if we go in the daytime and not to stay?
It was a wonderful experience will be as a sore thumb in this case as a pole under water.”
It was at that point we realised Assia, who works with our property owners, speaks perfect Dutch and we got her on the case. As far as accuracy is concerned, it should read closer to something like this:
“You certainly wouldn’t have any trouble with bad weather outside when spending a night here, although the price tag of €234,000 could perhaps be a bit much!
Only the wealthiest – or those who don’t have to worry about money – will be able to go for it, though here at TopluxE we might have a solution for that – what if we took a trip during the day instead of staying overnight?
There’s no doubt that this would be a great experience. The submarine that is transformed into the Lovers Deep Hotel is incredibly luxurious, so its hardly surprising the price tag is a bit high. One thing is for certain though – you and your partner will be spending a uniquely private time on Lovers Deep!”
Which certainly makes a lot more sense.
