New startup Napaway has entered the growing luxury motorcoach industry.

But Napaway doesn’t have the same mid-drive snack services, beverages, or motion-canceling seats that have defined other luxury bus companies.

These small suites are sectioned off with tall plastic barriers to block views of other passengers, giving travelers some more privacy at night.

Turning the two seats into a bedroom is a simple process that can be done in less than a minute.

Every seat has a small but easily identifiable black lever.

All you have to do is move these black notches up and push the seat backs down …

… and within seconds, you’ll have a lie-flat bed.

The back corner of the bed — where your head will eventually rest — has …read more
