Nothing quite beats the seclusion and privacy of a resort set on its own island. And in response to recent events, private islands have raised the bar even higher on their exclusive experiences, secluded villas, enhanced cleanliness and flexible bookings.
In our opinion, Como Cocoa Island has some of the most paradise-perfect overwater villas in the Maldives, each giving you utterly private access to the lagoon from your balcony. Elsewhere on the island the Shambhala Retreat spa covers a third of the private island so you can leave your worries behind in its spacious temple to wellness.
Masters of space and privacy, Como Parrot Cay in Turks & Caicos already prioritises utmost seclusion. Their brand-new beach houses are ideal for families looking to reconnect after long absences and the sheer natural beauty of the island makes for a quiet, reflective holiday, especially with its holistic-focused spa. Look out for our exclusive extras when you book.
Wilderness Without Another Soul
To some, getting away from it all – other people included – is an enticing idea. If that’s you, consider self-distancing on a whole new level at an amazing retreat in Finland. If there was such a thing as 7-star, Octola would surely be a contender.
An icy wonderland where your panorama consists of miles upon miles of snow-laden pine trees, you can experience the outdoors in complete silence on an evening candle lit route through the snow, learn about huskies and dog sledding or build your own igloo. Back at the hilltop modernist retreat, bedrooms are spacious, decorated in muted luxurious tones with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow uninterrupted gazing at the snowy wilderness.
The Working Holiday
Desk with a View
Many of us have embraced a whole new way of working from home, and with this in mind, take your work/life balance to the next level with an extended rental of a beautiful villa over the summer holidays next year. We can source you a selection of our best handpicked villas, from Italy to South Africa where you can take a month out of your usual surrounds. And, knowing the areas as we do, leave it up to us to find you a chef, tennis coach, or language tutor for the kids.
Short-Haul Sun and Sand
Perhaps you missed out on your family half-term fun or much-longed-for summer holiday this year. If that’s the case, consider stretching the season to take a sunny short-haul break in September or October half term. Sun-drenched Crete and in particular brand-new Domes Zeen with its family-friendly bungalows and private pools are a great option for late season warmth.
Elsewhere in Greece we think the standalone villas set along the cliff at Eagles Palace on Halkidiki Peninsula are a lovely spot to hole up with the family. With private pools and their own access to a gorgeous swathe of sandy beach, the simple pleasures of a Greek holiday are all yours.
Seclusion at Sea
Besides the obvious, there are a number of reasons why hopping aboard a floating haven is a great way to travel. Wake up to a new adventure each day, explore the azure ocean in your own time and generally feel a sense of freedom that you just can’t on land.
How about feeling the wind in your sails while discovering the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia aboard a polished teak gulet? Decide on your route – whether you’d like to skirt round the remote islands of Vis and Komiza, pull into harbour on buzzy Hvar or visit the famous finger-shaped beach in Bol. Aboard, your chef will consult with your about the daily menu and the boat will be stocked with your favourite tipples. And with five cabins on board, you can bring the extended family with you.
