Best Private Getaways
When it comes to downtime, you’re a firm believer in the time-honored mantra “go big or go home!” There’s no better way to get your vacation on than with a stay at one of the world’s best private island resorts. Our list of private getaways includes the best small luxury resorts as well as islands you can have all to yourself. Grab your calendar, your checkbook and a glass of wine, and get ready to plan the best vacation of your lifetime.
Cayo Espanto, Belize
Located in the calm, warm waters of the Caribbean, Cayo Espanto
has been named the world’s leading private island escape. It’s hard to believe you’re only two hours from Miami when you step onto this Travelers’ Choice award winner, with extraordinary views, lots to do and explore, exquisite service and undeniable romance. Looking for a little something extra? Visit mainland Belize, where everything from Mayan ruins to the rainforest are
within an easy day’s drive. Return to Cayo Espanto and book an appointment at the spa, enjoy delicious cuisine and simply pray time passes as slowly as possible.
Cousine Island, Seychelles
Freshly renovated and undeniably chic, the Seychelles satisfies when only a thirst for the exotic will do. Cousine Island
is available for private hire, and open to only 12 adults and six children. Located about 1,000 miles off the coast of Africa and once a private home – imagine growing up on a luxuriously appointed private island – Cousine Island features five villas dotted among a beautifully planted, completely indigenous landscape. Be as active or as inactive as you like. It goes without saying that the service is second to none.
The Brando, French Polynesia
Marlon Brando, searching for a location to film “Mutiny on the Bounty,” spotted the atoll of Tetiaroa and promptly bought it. A living coral reef and a dozen islets surround a shimmering lagoon of uncommon clarity, even for the renowned islands of French Polynesia. Orchids, freshwater pools, dense trees, sandy beaches – and an on-call butler service – make this tropical hideaway one of the world’s best. Quiet restaurants and a spa assure you’ll be as pampered as humanly possible at The Brando
Little Palm Island, USA
Prefer to stay closer to home? Look no further than Little Palm Island
, located in the Florida Keys. This award-winning hideaway offers thatched roof bungalows with outdoor showers, absolutely outstanding cuisine, the de rigeur
on-site spa and access to world-class flats and deep sea fishing, diving and more. Although Little Palm Island is located within an easy drive from Miami, try taking a seaplane instead, and make sure your vacation starts the moment you begin your travels.
