Sure, when thinking about holiday we think beach, sun, hats, sun glasses and cocktail. But in the luxury world we don’t do like everyone else, we don’t go where everyone else goes. The holidays are a luxury; thanks to very special places that sentence makes sense.
For winter we obviously think about Aspen, Verbier and Whistler for skiing. For summer, we think of Barbados’ beaches, The Riviera or St Barts. To rest or relax years a Zen atmosphere, we rather think about the countries like Thailand, Vietnam or Indonesia which already make its proofs. But other secret locations are idyllic point for celebrities and wealthy entrepreneurs.
So, this is 7 secret Caribbean islands where you can hide yourself from the crowd:
– Cayo Espanto :
Just off the coast of Belize, this diminutive private island. It contains six luxurious private villas and one overwater bungalow.
Part of the Lesser Antilles, this large, jungle-covered island (much of which is a protected nature preserve) attracts mostly in-the-know ecotravelers.
– Guana Island
The 850 acres that comprise this British Virgin Island are home to more than 50 bird, 14 reptile and 200 plant and insect species, not to mention the myriad sea creatures that inhabit its waters.
– Isla Holbox
Despite its proximity to the perpetually thronged Riviera Maya, this 25-mile-long island off the northern tip of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula has managed to stay sleepily unspoiled.
– Kamalame Cay
Occupying a pristine, 96-acre Private Island off the north coast of Andros in the Bahamas, this boutique resort is still run by the same family that built it in the 1990s. The property, though, epitomizes modern barefoot chic, encompassing 19 breezy rooms and suites.
– Peter Island
Though it’s one of the largest British Virgin Islands, the nearly 2,000-acre Peter Island is private, unlike many of its neighbors. Yet its eponymous resort offers the sorts of amenities one would find at much larger properties, including a full-service.
– Petit St. Vincent
Part of the Grenadines, this 115-acre private island resort is a luxurious place to unplug. There are no phones or Internet connectivity in the 22 seaside stone-and-timber villas, nor at the casual beach bar or the sumptuous tree-house spa or along the nearly two miles of shoreline.
