The Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur India. #everything

This hotel has become a major branding experience in the possibilities of Indian luxury.This hotel has become a major branding experience in the possibilities of Indian luxury.

There are more self-consciously opulent hotels in India (the Taj Lake Palace also in Udaipur , for instance) and more historic ones ( Taj Falaknuma Palace, in Hyderabad, former home to the Nizam of Hyderabad). What I love about The Oberoi Udaivilas is the graphic excellence of its design as played against the astonishing beauty of its setting.

THE NEXT LEVEL: THE PRIVATE AIRBUS A380-800

The tears that the generation that missed the Concorde has shed! Well there might be a reprieve. Now that designer Edese Doret has finally finished kitting out the super-sized Airbus A380-800 jet for that certain "private client" (a Middle Eastern oil magnate) maybe we can dream of a higher standard for air travel. The whole extravagant thing even comes with its own conference room table that seats 14, a grand lounge (pictured above) and a master BEDROOM! The bottom line cost for all that..."thatness"...$500 mil thank you very much. I go home now to aspire.
