Private Island Getaways

Private Island Getaways
A private island getaway provides the perfect opportunity to explore, hike and relax without feeling as though you're surrounded by kids and tourists. For a couple of days or longer you can feel what it might be like to be secluded from civilization while still enjoying some of the amenities. These retreats are exclusive and will turn your vacation into a once-in-a-lifetime island dream.

Le Taha'a Island Resort

It doesn't get much more exclusive than this resort and spa located on the fine sand beaches of French Polynesia. This resort is tinged with celebrity, having been the private island getaway favored by Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The accommodations provide guests a view of Bora Bora and the island of Taha'a, set directly on a blue lagoon perfect for some of the activities the resort offers. These activities include jet skiing, snorkeling and even a shark-feeding expedition. The resort also includes three restaurants where guests can enjoy a Polynesian buffet or a seafood barbecue. Rates and reservations are available through its website.

Round Hill

Tucked behind rounded white gates to ensure privacy and seclusion, the Round Hill Hotel and Villas Resort has long been a favorite for private Jamaican getaways. Round Hill has won the World Travel Awards prize for best Caribbean's villa resort for seven years in a row. The accommodations include 27 private villas surrounded by tropical gardens and 26 oceanfront rooms in what the resort calls The Pineapple House. Rooms are sparsely decorated and painted white, each with large windows to look out on the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic. An infinity edge pool and five tennis courts are just a couple of the activities the resort offers. The resort also plans and conducts specialized private weddings for those who want to get married in a tropical paradise.

Cocoa Island Resort

The island of Maldives provides a true getaway from day-to-day hectic life, and the Cocoa Island Resort is there to improve on this fantasy. The resort rents out over-water bungalows, allowing guests to look down and see the blue waters of the Indian Ocean any time they want. The Resort offers complimentary Wi-Fi access if you're feeling a little too cut off from civilization. As the resort comprises only 33 suites, the possibility exists to plan an event with family and friends and completely take over the island.
