Welcome to this week’s edit! In true Le X Cartel fashion, (that's French for The X Cartel) I decided to dive right into the new year with a travel piece so luxe it deserves a tiny top hat.
AMANDIRA is the latest offering the AMAN hotel group has cooked up!
According to those luxey geniuses over at Aman, AMANDIRA combines the Sanskrit-derived word for 'peace' with 'dira', which carries the dual meaning of 'intrepid and courageous' and 'calm and composed'. And, though that all sounds lovely, what they really should have called it is Aman-Fancy-Pants because this 52m sailing vessel is pretty much the fanciest piece of luxury you can get on without somehow managing to board Liberachi's piggy-back.
While this puppy may not come cheap you always have the option of slipping on a bikini, mixing up a margarita and cranking some chill island style tunes while you scroll through our edit. An impressively competitive alternative (when you factor in the fact that our option is 100% free, Yo welcome).
So put on your imaginary sunblock fellow virtual travellers… and enjoy!
