|The Main Aft Deck is the perfect spot to take in the views—or even a swim.|
If you’re looking for a new and unique way to see the French Riviera, we say the waterways could be your option. Lov Hotel Collection, which brought us the Chalet Ormello, Chalet de Pierres and Les Airelles in Courchevel, has branched out into mega-yachts, and the M.Y. Yogi is now sailing between Monaco and Cannes. Bragging Rights: The Yogi is the first yacht over 500 tons to be launched under the French flag.
Available for weeklong rentals, the 200-foot vessel was unveiled earlier this year. We say it could work well for families and small groups of up to 12, thanks to its 8,600-square-feet of living space, nearly 5,400-square-feet of outdoor space and eight roomy cabins. The master takes up the entire width of the bow on the main deck and can be accessed by a private entrance. It has two bathrooms (one of which has a TV integrated in a mirror and a dressing room lit by a skylight).
The yacht’s design touches sound divine, with furnishings covered in linen, cotton or silk, or topstitched white leather. Cool Touch: The ceilings are overlaid with leather.
Francophiles, rejoice: All the hospitality products are by Hermès, the air freshener is by Blaise Mautin and the crockery, china and glassware are supplied by Bernardaud, Coquet and Baccarat.
|The Guest Master Bedroom onboard the M.Y. Yogi is spacious and thoroughly modern.|
Outdoors, guests can relax in the Jacuzzi or in the freshwater heated pool, which has an infinity edge, a glass bottom, a sun deck and two central island-style lounges. And if a dip in the sea is in order, you can use the two Cayago Seabobs, borrow the yacht’s snorkeling gear or hop on one of the two Jet Skis.
Onboard, the main lounge’s home theater area has a giant screen surrounded by immense windows—travelers can decide for themselves if they’d rather watch the waves or the movie. (Games and consoles are also available—ideal for a rainy day!) Good for business travelers: The yacht is equipped with satellite TV and Wi-Fi. The ultra-mellow Beach Club offers direct access to the sea.
