LIFE’S LUX­U­RIES

Some­thing from the “we wish” file. Not only do guests at the Penin­sula Hong Kong have the op­por­tu­nity to be driven in a fleet of Rolls-Royce Phan­toms and fly in a cus­tomised he­li­copter they can now use a pri­vate yacht. The 19m cruiser will take up to 15 pas­sen­gers on a Vic­to­ria Har­bour cruise each night to see the Sym­phony of Lights spec­ta­cle. If you have a spare $10,000, you can also hire it for four hours.

BIRD’S-EYE IN THE SKY

Th­ese quirky merino wool eye masks caught our eye when Air New Zealand re­cently teamed with an­other Kiwi com­pany, shoe­mak­ers All­birds, to of­fer busi­ness-class pas­sen­gers some help with their shut-eye. The masks’ beaky shape is said to help fly­ers sleep bet­ter and wake feel­ing fresher. Now the masks are avail­able for those in the cheap seats, too, but you have to buy your own be­fore you fly. Just pick a face.
