Take a break and puruse some of the most luxurious island destinations on the planet.
Mustique Island, Caribbean
The island is home to great beaches with some rocky terrain. It’s hit the news recently when Kate Middleton and her family spent a reported $23,000 a day to unwind at the Aurora Villa. If that’s a little beyond this years’s budget there are over 80 other villas to choose from, most laid out in a similar minimalistic but high-end style.
Turtle Island, Fiji
This island is the setting for the 1980’s movie “Blue Lagoon” staring Brooke Shields and continues to attract celebrity visitors. Although is has a reputation as a honeymoon destination, the romantic ambience of this island makes it an ideal anytime escape.
Bora Bora Island, French Polynesia, Pacific Ocean
Part of the famous French Polynesian group of 118 islands known for their pristine oceanic views, beaches and privacy, listing the celebrities who have visited here would take too long. A favourite of the Kardashians, Nicole Kidman and Vince Vaugan, this place is often called the most beautiful island in the world. Just an hour’s flight from Tahiti, and also accessible by sea, this is the ideal spot for rejuvenation and extreme relaxation.
Anguilla Island, Caribbean
To keep the ambience as tranquil as possible, the local government has ensured that there are no conventional high-end hotels, only smaller private resorts. This is a hot spot for foodies too with top class cuisine from American to Chinese, Mediterranean to Continental, and even French and Italian to choose from. A favourite with golfers, this island is conveniently connected to the mainland US and even Puerto Rico. Anguilla attracts lots of A listers every year including Jay-Z and Beyonce who got married here.
St. Barts, Caribbean
This Carribean Island, originally named St. Barthelemy’s, remains a hotspot not just for holidays, but for its high end real estate bought over by oligarchs such as Roman Abramovich, who splurged $90 million on his private mansion there. Apart from the usual activities like spa treatments, scuba diving, sailing, water skiing, wind surfing and shopping, the island also boasts an abundance of rare species of flora and fauna. Simon Cowell and Matt Damon are also regulars.
