Desaru, here we come
Forget about the messy and stressful airport situation — take a leisurely ferry ride to your next holiday destination and stay in the lap of luxury. We suggest Anantara Desaru Coast Residences, a boutique collection of 20 luxury seaside villas on Peninsular Malaysia’s pristine southeastern coastline. With the opening of the Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal and the commencement of a direct ferry service from and to Singapore, your holiday gets a little more convenient. The new Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal can process 300 passengers with a new-generation e-gate, making immigration screening more efficient at peak times.
Anantara Desaru Coast Residences’ beachfront villas offer direct access to Desaru Coast’s beautiful sandy beaches, while terrace villas boast elevated views of the South China Sea. Four-bedroom duplex villas, meanwhile, will suit large families and investment buyers alike. Each duplex villa features two master en-suite choices, separate entrances for ground and upper living spaces, as well as a private wellness room equipped with a treadmill and spa-grade massage bed – fully convertible into an office, home cinema or additional bedroom.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers luxury travellers with the Regent’s European Indulgence with US$500 ($697) Shipboard Credit per suite, plus a one-night Post- Cruise Hotel Package on 60 voyages sailing to the Mediterranean and Northern Eu- rope. The Post-Cruise One-Night Hotel Package includes a one-night luxury hotel stay with breakfast and private transfers from ship to hotel and hotel to airport, and can be enjoyed in London, England; Copenhagen, Denmark; or Istanbul, Turkey, amongst many more incredible desinations.
The Oetker Collection has collaborated with Drest, the world’s first luxury fashion gaming app, so that gamers can take on the role of a stylist, putting high-fashion looks together for daily challenges using an unparalleled catalogue of current collections from over 250 of the world’s top brands. Crucial to a player’s success in each photoshoot is their choice of location, as they select a backdrop most likely to help their photo stand out and win votes from the community.
Next stop on Drest’s French Oetker Collection styling odyssey is the South of France and the legendary Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, where players can get creative by pairing the latest vacation fashion featuring the proper- ty’s emblematic swimming pool as one of the backdrops. A visit to nearby Venice is next as Château Saint-Martin & Spa, the exquisite summer hideaway offering dreamy panoramic view of the Riviera hinterland, is the third French destination of this first installment of this roving luxury travel partnership.
This collaboration follows hot on the heels of luxury brands such as Gucci, Cartier, Prada, Valentino and Nars who collaborate with Drest to unlock the highly engaged gaming audience. This is the first time a luxury hospitality brand will enable meaningful brand storytelling and discovery via mobile gaming.
