Located on a private island in Fiji, this honeymooners’ paradise has 14 private beaches. Each of the 14 villas have sweeping ocean views, king-size beds, and hammocks to relax on with your significant other. Meals at Turtle Island Resort are seen as opportunities for romance, and options include candle-lit dinners on a floating pontoon in the Blue Lagoon, private beach picnics, or a champagne breakfast after watching the sunrise from horseback. This ultra-luxurious, all-inclusive resort features top-shelf wine and liquor, sea-and-farm-to-table meals, sunset cruises, two half-hour massages, a personal concierge, scuba diving, windsurfing, sailing, hiking, and mountain biking. With limited cell service and Wi-Fi guests are encouraged to connect with each other, instead of the world outside this 500-acre island. To protect the pristine beauty of the island, the resort takes steps to reduce its impact on the environment, such as running completely on solar power, and growing their own produce on a five-acre, onsite farm which guests can tour. The resort also partners with the World Wildlife Fund to conserve the sea turtle population on the island.
On the Grenadines’ stunning southern tip, lies this award-winning resort on a lush, 115-acre island made to unwind. Telephones, Wi-Fi and televisions are absent from any of the one-bedroom cottages or two-bedroom beach villas, to give guests time to unplug and tune in to each other. Two restaurants, one on the hillside and the other on the beach, offer gourmet meals of locally-caught seafood and organic, island-grown produce along with a weekly, sunset beach barbeque, and island picnics. A sommelier is on hand to help guests pair one of the 4,500 bottles of fine wines with their meal. PSV has been recognized by National Geographic as a leader in sustainability because of their recycling efforts, state-of-the-art desalination plant for island-bottled drinking water, and their coral restoration and reef monitoring project. Guests can de-stress in one of the two yoga pavilions and the Balinese-run luxury spa and wellness center. Water sports and boat charters are also available to guests.
