5 of the most romantic private island retreats

1. Amanpulo, Philippines

Located northwest of Palawan Island, guests arrive by private plane landing on the island’s own airstrip on Pamalican Island. With just 40 villas (or casitas, which mean little houses) sprawled over the hillside, beach and treetops, guests can choose which view to wake up to, whether it’s the greenery or white sandy beach that lead into crystal clear waters. If you can pull yourself away from seclusion, there are endless activities to “busy” yourself with from sailing and scuba diving, to nature walks and bird watching.

2. Cocoa Island by Como, Maldives

Inspired by the curved wooden forms of the local fishing boats, there are only 33 over water villas and suites on the private Cocoa Island that’s located on the South Malé Atoll, so it’s never crowded. Surrounded by crystal clear water which plays host to stingrays, eagle rays and blacktip reef sharks, guests enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows that open to private decks, bringing the sea and sky into every room.

3. Wakaya Club & Spa, Fiji

Set on a 2,200 acre tropical island that’s only accessible by the resort’s private aircraft Air Wakaya, as many as 10 free-standing waterfront Fijian cottage suites crowd (far from it, really) endless views of the azure-blue Pacific Ocean. Those who are lucky enough to nab a cottage are greeted by majestic cliffs, endless white sandy beaches, deep blue lagoons and well protected reefs. And if you’re a certified diver, the resort provides two tank dives per day for underwater explorations.

4. Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia

Song Saa, which means ‘The Sweethearts’ in Khmer, is the perfect honeymoon retreat – the resort boasts a total of just 27 luxury villas, all offering panoramic vistas of the natural beauty that surrounds it. Located in the Gulf of Thailand just 35 minutes from the port of Sihanoukville, guests staying on this private island retreat are privy to dramatic sunsets, seascapes and starry nights that can be seen from each villa’s private veranda.
