The South Pacific archipelago of Fiji is a luxury traveller’s haven and Laucala Island, part of The Leading Hotels of the World, is surely the jewel of the group; a private island surrounded by clear and quiet lagoons.
There are 25 luxury residences sprawled across the island, so you can choose your view, whether you prefer a hideaway high on a cliff or a beach-side villa between lush mountains and unspoilt coastline. Of course, the best way to take advantage of your tropical paradise is to gather family or friends and rent it out exclusively for a week.
There’s far more to do on Laucala besides work on your tan, with activities catering to your every holiday desire. Start with a round on the 18-hole championship golf course, take a sailing boat out to a remote corner and go snorkelling, embark on a horseback ride along the coast in the afternoon then tuck into sunset dinner on the beach — and that’s just day one.
Price: exclusive hire from US $150,000 a night
