We’re all looking for that extra dose of luxury when booking a dream holiday and what could be more special than a once in a lifetime trip to a private island? In today’s post we’re showing off six spectacular resorts that not only have an infinity pool but can be found on their very own private island.
The Brando, French Polynesia
Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots in the world, French Polynesia’s The Brando can be found on the private island of Tetiaroa. Created to honour Polynesian culture, the resort preserves the natural beauty of the island and protects the sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds that are native to Tetiaroa.
There are only thirty five private villas on the island, so the resort feels quiet and peaceful, even if it’s at full capacity. One, two and three bedroom villas are available, and those that choose a three bedroom villa can soak up the sun in a 235sq foot private infinity pool.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, Maldives
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort takes the idea of a private island resort to the next level, by splitting its first class facilities across two private islands, connected by a footbridge that stretches out across the water. Not only that, but guests can explore the coral gardens from the resort’s underwater restaurant, which is found five metres below the surface.
One of the most popular attractions at the Conrad Maldives Rangali is the unparalleled snorkelling experiences that you can enjoy in the resort’s own lagoon, which is home to beautiful manta rays. There’s also the option to enjoy a one of a kind excursion in the resort’s miniature submarine, which lets you get up close and personal to the surrounding coral reefs, while protecting the delicate eco-system.
Frégate Private Island, Seychelles
The vivid colour is the first thing you’ll notice when you arrive at your private villa on Frégate Private Island in the Seychelles: the lush green of the palm trees, the stunning azure blue of both the ocean and your private infinity pool, and the bold reds and yellows of your villa’s architecture and decor.
Only sixteen villas are available on the island and, whichever you choose, you’ll be treated to a panoramic view of the tiny island, which has a coastline of only 8km. Each villa comes with a private infinity pool, hot tub and sun terrace that offers gorgeous views of the beach and ocean below.
Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia
Song Saa Private Island Resort is renowned as Cambodia’s first luxury private island resort, brought to life by an interior designer and organic sculptor who founded the resort with her husband. Two islands make up Song Saa resort (named after the Khmer word for ‘The Sweethearts’) and the footbridge that connects the islands is suspended above the marina reserve that was created by the resort to protect the area’s local wildlife.
When you book a room at the Song Saa resort you can choose whether your room is over the water, nestled in the jungle or has a stunning view of the ocean – all options are fully sustainable, eco-friendly and come with private infinity plunge pools to cool off from the heat of the afternoon sun.
Matamanoa Island Resort, Fiji
The only adult-only resort on our list, Matamanoa Island Resort in Fiji is the perfect destination for couples who are seeking a luxurious, romantic break in a stunning setting. With a private beach, tennis courts and world-class snorkelling, Matamanoa Island Resort is one of the world’s most secluded and prestigious island resorts.
Whether you want to relax and soak up the view of the Pacific Ocean from the outdoor infinity pool, or get your heart rate up by enjoying a post of beach rugby, you’ll never run out of things to do at Matamanoa. More unusual activities are also on offer, including coconut bowling and the always popular champagne island hopping cruise.
The Naka Island Resort, Thailand
You know you’re in for a treat when your private island resort can only be reached by speedboat, and that’s exactly how you’ll arrive at the Naka Island resort. Situated just off of Phuket’s coast, the Naka Island exudes comfort and tranquility from every corner and is the perfect place for couples who are seeking the holiday of a lifetime.
Spa Naka is one of the most popular areas on the island – and for good reason, but there’s more to enjoy than just the spa, as the resort’s freshwater infinity pool looks out across the nearby Phang Nga Bay and, for those who are seeking total peace and quiet, each villa comes with a private outdoor sunbathing area.
