You’re probably busy right now putting the finishing touches to your romantic Valentine’s plans, sorry, because no matter what they are they are, they’re not going to touch this lavish getaway of oysters, caviar and champagne under the ocean on a submarine.
The $570,000 underwater cruise is being offered to one lucky couple who will be able to pick the location of their choice. The price is per $285,000 a night with a minimum stay of two nights with the dare devil couple able to sink their teeth into a special aphrodisiac tasting menu including a chocolate fondant with essence of pomegranate.
As if any more romantic encouragement was actually needed, the couple lucky enough to be able to trump over half a million dollars for this extravagant voyage will actually be greeted by champagne as they arrive by personal helicopter or speed boat.
The makers of the package, Oliver’s Travels, say: “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.”
If you really wanted to go for it, you could also chuck in this eight course Valentine’s Tasting menu for a mere $99,000.
