Musha Cay, The Bahamas
At Musha Cay, a personal fireworks show, diving, deep-sea fishing, and even a customized treasure hunt can be added to your already-luxurious stay. Part of the “Out Islands” of the Exumas, Musha Cay and The Islands of Copperfield Bay (as in David Copperfield) are a collection of eleven beautiful isles of pure private heaven. As the resort claims, you get to choose who the guests are. It’s an all-or-nothing affair: you must rent the entire island with as many as 24 guests in five guesthouses. The daily rate starts at $39,000 for up to 24 guests, and includes all meals and beverages. Here are more of the world’s most luxurious hotels and resorts.
Cayo Espanto, Belize
Just a short boat ride from the mainland, this tiny four-acre island offers some serious pampering. A personal chef, personal dive master, butler, and the entire staff out on the dock to greet you as you arrive. Then you have your own villa—there are only seven—right on the emerald water’s edge with infinity plunge pools. Rates for Cayo Espanto are all-inclusive and start at $1,595 per night per villa. Or you can rent the whole island with a group of friends for $13,500.
Guana Island, British Virgin Islands
Though the island has 850 acres, it has no public access and yet has seven white-sand beaches for an average of about 30 guests. The island is rich with plants and animals, especially bird species, and snorkeling is possible on three reefs. Sign up for yoga, try your hand at tennis lessons, and have a drink at The Club, a colonial Great House. Fly into Beef Island and the resort’s boat can pick you up. A sea view cottage starts at $695 all-inclusive per night for couples in low season, and go up from there for the villas. You could also book one of these 10 all-inclusive cruises for the best vacation ever.
