If candy and flowers won't cut it this Valentine's Day, one high-end travel organization is offering an experience that's sure to be remembered.
The Lovers Deep offers the chance for an adventurous, rich — and not claustrophobic — couple to spend an evening below sea level. The sky-high price of $140,000 per person for one night doesn't include airfare.
The swanky submarine is an over-the-top — or shall we say below-the-deep — luxury experience billed as the "Mile Low Club" that offers members the luxe services of a chef, a butler, and a captain who cater to the two guests.
The vessels start from about 40 feet long. The hefty price tag includes romantic gestures aplenty. The package includes rose-petal scattering, Barry White on the soundtrack, and a dinner that serves up oysters, caviar, and chocolate fondant.
The leisure submarine "is designed to your personal specification and built as a unique, one-off trip of a lifetime that you'll never forget," according to the website for Oliver's Travels.
"This is now Oliver's Travels' most unique, luxury and expensive 'property' on the site," spokeswoman Rachel Aldersley told Yahoo in an email. "We don't believe other travel rental companies offer an underwater vacation like this one."
As underwater vacations go, you can't beat the view. Guests can choose where to dock, "whether that be a stunning coral reef off the coast of St. Lucia or a sunken battleship in the Red Sea," the press release notes.
Good news for moguls who like subs (looking at you, James Cameron): Since this property was just added, Lovers Deep hasn't received any bookings yet — so now's the chance.
