These Private Islands Are The Ultimate Vacation Goals

Creating and curating relevant and relatable news, events and resources for the working mom. Here’s the latest from the PowerMom team…

Jetting off to a far-flung island is one of our ultimate vacation fantasies, but not all of these locales are created equal. Living it up in a tropical paradise sounds amazing on paper — but the reality is that some gorgeous spots can be overrun with tourists during high season. For that extra bit of space and privacy, the rich and famous turn to private island resorts for their R&R needs.

Imagine strolling on a private beach, taking a dip in a secluded cove, and sipping on a sundowner concocted by your own personal bartender — this is the dream these secluded hotels are selling. And, let’s face it: Life can’t get any better than that.

We may not be billionaires or jackpot winners (yet), but we can certainly live vicariously through photos of these stunning retreats. Read on for our bucket list of intimate respites that are scenic, romantic, and just downright epic.

 

Amanpulo, Pamalican Island, Philippines

The Palawan region of the Philippines is one of the last unspoiled places on Earth, with Pamalican Island deservingly crowned the “Paradise Island” — and according to The Daily Mail, Beyoncé and Brad Pitt are fans. You can only get there via private chartered flights from Manila.

The architecture of the resort is inspired by nipa huts, a traditional form of stilt housing in the Filipino countryside. There are 40 rustic casitas and 11 villas on the premises, all of which come with pitched roofs, wooden decks, and hammocks. The resort offers excursions to nearby pearl farms on seaplanes and helicopters.

 

 

The Brando, Tetiaroa, French Polynesia

If the name sounds familiar to you, you’ve probably been paying attention to Pippa Middleton’s whereabouts. Known as Marlon Brando’s private island, this atoll was recently in the headlines as the bride’s choice for her honeymoon getaway. The secluded villas are set further back from the beach to guarantee maximum privacy — a welcome feature even for those not related to a princess.

The pièce de résistance of the resort is the Varua Polynesian Spa, which was built on the very site where the Tahitian royals received treatments. The cocoon-like Fare Manu suite is the best spot to enjoy the pampering experience.

 

 

 

Peter Island Resort & Spa, British Virgin Islands

Peter Island is the largest private island in the region, but less than one-fifth of the land has been developed for hospitality purposes. Committed to preserving the island’s natural habitat, the resort established at water-purifying system, windmill generators, and a recycling plan in order to reduce its carbon footprint.
