    Uber Underwater

    Introducing the world’s first rideshare submarine – scUber.

    From May 27 to June 18, you can explore the Great Barrier Reef in a scUber submarine. Launched in partnership between Uber and Queensland Tourism and offering limited availability of dates and rides, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity won’t last long. scUber is set to launch the experience off the coast of Heron Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef region on the 27th May, before moving to Agincourt Reef off the coast of Port Douglas, followed by the Great Barrier Reef region from 9th June.

    Don’t expect Uber cheap prices – experiences as amazing as this one come with a price tag to match. The experience will cost AU $3,000 and includes pick up and drop off at your location, a scenic helicopter ride and one-hour scUber submarine.

    From Farmhouse to Luxury Escape

    Located on Italy’s Adriatic coast and surrounded by ancient olive groves lies a 16th century masseria (farmhouse) with all the charms we’ve come to expect from southern Italy.

    Masseria Torre Maizza has undergone careful renovations to restore its natural beauty and is the newest addition to the Rocco Forte hotel collection. Infused with rustic elegance, Masseria Torre Maizza features 40 suites with stunning views of the Apulian countryside. This luxurious farmhouse, with a 20-metre pool, an exclusive, nine-hole golf course, a private beach club and luxurious spa treatments, is an idyllic place to relax: witness the magic of a Puglian sunset while sipping cocktails on the rooftop bar.
