Recommendations For The Best Tropical Island Vacations

Tropical Destinations For A Great Luxury Getaway

The Best Of Luxury Getaways Worldwide For Perfect Holidays

For me, it has to be first of all, a private intimate place. I don’t like big hotels no matter how luxurious they are—no matter how good their customer service is, big brick, cement or stone walls just don’t give me a sense of belonging.
I like small luxury resorts. Where there are only a few dozen individual villas, where I have the choice of knowing everyone in the area if I want to or staying far away from everyone when necessary.

I love a tropical environment. I love elegantly manicured gardens and lush trees.

My luxury getaway is largely dependent on a resort’s location and style. So based on these requirements, I’ve listed 5 of the best tropical luxury hideaways around the globe.

One & Only Le Touessrok One & Only Le Touessrok

( Trou d’eau Douce, Mauritius )

One & Only Le Touessrok is the perfect setting for romantic luxury getaways. Every little touch that makes customer service luxurious is practiced in this resort with Mediterranean village style.

Its easy to feel like a king or a queen —a place where butlers show up when you need them and disappear when you don’t. Junior suites on Frangipani island are highly recommended. Not that perfect for couples with kids...

Gardens HotelThe Gardens Hotel Key West

( 17 guest suites)

A boutique hotel in all its grandeur—Bed and breakfast that’s a luxury retreat all the way. With The Gardens Hotels’ quiet ambiance, soothing garden and tropical landscape, you don’t realise that you are actually just a few steps away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street.

A luxurious haven, this is a great place to unwind and to have romantic escapades...

Maravu Plantation Resort, Taveuni Island, Fiji

( 20 bures)

With only 20 individual bures ( thatched huts ), you’ll feel you’re in your own little beach house in Maravu Plantation Resort—your own private beach house with staff that cater to your every whim, with a private beach right there for you to bask in and a range of activities nearby.

Most individual bures are secluded in a private area with a private jacuzzi...

Turks and Caicos Club, Providenciales

( 21 suites )

With only 21 large suites, the Turks and Caicos Club is an intimate luxury getaway with oceanfront, ocean view and pool view suites.

Its spectacular beach is not at all crowded and is a great place to relax as it’s quiet and there aren’t too many loud kids roaming about.

Hilton Maldives Rangali IslandHilton Maldives Resort and Spa, Rangali Island

( 150 rooms –I know this seems to be a bit too many rooms, but remember these are beach villas and separate from each other)

A private resort on its own island (actually 2 islands connected by a footbridge ), Hilton Maldives Resort and Spa is an amazing must go luxury getaway. Its superb island location is a big plus, but that’s only a little slice of what the hotel offers.

The moment you arrive at Male airport, the staff are there for you –they offer drinks, cold towels, take care of your luggage and escort you to a private lounge before you get on board a sea plane that will take you to the island—you can only imagine what the service is like once you get to the resort..
