Be the first to leave footprints in pure, white sands, or to dive beneath turquoise waters. On a private island you’ll experience the life of luxury as a 21st-century castaway – and could even have your very own butler.
These idyllic retreats specialise in top-to-bottom indulgence. Think over-water villas and treetop spas, infinity pools that stretch as far as the eye can see and uninterrupted views of starlit skies. Barbecues mean freshly caught lobster, cocktails are tropical and sunset is the time to take to the water on a private yacht.
We’ve searched the seas for tiny island gems and the out-of-this-world boutique hotels that call them home. Dream-like escapes so enchanting that you’ll pinch yourself.
