Looking for an unforgettable vacation that spells romance? There are five private islands that deliver sun, surf, sand, seclusion and all things romantic at the off-the-path oasis that you’ll have all to yourselves.
There are a few things that are synonymous with romantic getaways – the more-than-perfect combination of an intimate island paradise, surrounded by crystal clear waters with white sandy beaches and breath-taking sunsets. Here is a list of five private islands that kindle romance, suggested by experts from AirTravel Enterprises, Bengaluru:
It is the most northerly island of the Whitsunday Group and is situated about 28 kilometres north-east of Shute Harbour and about 900 kilometres north of Brisbane. A quiet mountainous continental island mainly covered with eucalypts and hoop pine, the One & Only Resort at Hayman is a feast for your eyes. This island combines the best of luxury digs and pristine nature, with exotic beach villas for a couple’s indulgence, private pools and secluded retreat rooms, nestled under a tropical garden canopy. You can even opt for sunset cheese-and-wine picnics on secluded beaches, twilight dining next to waterfalls or by the beach or for activities like snorkeling or reef diving. If you are the adventurous and sporty sort, you can play tennis or golf or go on a catamaran ride or seaplane flights.
TURKS & CAICOS
Set snugly amidst the crystal-clear waters of the Turks and Caicos, Parrot Cay by COMO is one of the most exclusive resort islands of the Caribbean. With over thousand acres of lush landscapes and white sandy beaches, it is more of a sanctuary than a resort, where you and your partner can discover each other. The resort has luxurious beachfront villas with four-poster beds, private pools, and garden showers. Couples can head out for kayaking, snorkeling, and water-skiing or simply laze by the infinity-edge pool overlooking the Caribbean. If you and your partner are not big on adventure, then you can opt for the yoga and wellness programs at the Shambhala Spa and rejuvenate yourselves. A little more than 30 minutes away from the mainland, you can hop on a speedboat and uncover the unexplored terrain.
