Utilising a specially adapted leisure submarine, interior designed and furnished to the individual customer’s specification, the vessel, nicknamed Lovers Deep, is the latest holiday destination to be added to more than 1,500 other handpicked holiday villas on Oliver’s Travels website, each selected for their quirky or unique character.  The Mile Low Club, launched in time for Valentine’s Day 2014, delivers a world-class service that leaves couples able to relax, unwind and enjoy the secluded isolation that the ocean puts between them and the rest of the world.

Staffed by an on-board crew of three; consisting of the Captain, chef and personal butler (who share separate, sound-proof living accommodation at the other end of the craft to ensure guest privacy), Lovers Deep has the unique capability of being moored at a location chosen by the customer, whether that be a stunning coral reef off the coast of St. Lucia or a sunken battleship in the Red Sea.  With private speedboat transfers as standard, the service can also be customised with optional extras including helicopter transfers with a beach landing, free rose petal scattering service or champagne breakfast in bed – all booked through the Oliver’s Concierge service.
