Delivery drones have been topping headlines lately, from drones delivering Coca-Cola to drones delivering Amazon orders. Now drones are getting more sophisticated in their deliveries.

The Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa in Sausalito, California, recently announced that the hotel will begin delivering champagne by way of drone to guests staying in their luxurious Alexandrite Suite. In fact, the custom drones were built specifically to hold two bottles of champagne.

While the drone delivery seems a little bit outrageous, consider one night at the 5,000-square-foot Alexandrite Suite costs $10,000. Even at that price, drone delivery isn’t included and will cost you extra based on how many bottles of champagne you order.

The hotel is planning to build more drones in order to efficiently deliver all types of goods and treats, including alcohol and cookies.
