For a vacation that is all about peace, seclusion and luxury, you can’t go wrong with a private resort. From Australia to the Seychelles, OROGOLD brings you some of the top private resorts in the world.
North Island, Seychelles
The Seychelles is made up of 115 islands, with North Island being the northernmost one. The island consists of a nature conservancy, as well as a private resort with eleven luxury thatched villas. Each of the villas has been constructed using local materials, with the resort’s atmosphere being dubbed as an “haute couture Robinson Crusoe”, as even the staff go about barefoot. For the best views on the island, OROGOLD recommends booking Villa 11, as this is the only villa that is completely isolated, and measures a massive 8000 square feet. When it comes to the delicious meals served up, these are created after an initial brainstorming session with each guest and the chef, with each dish cooked just for you, doing away with the need for menus.
Orpheus Island, Australia
Orpheus Island, which lies on the Great Barrier Reef, is not only surrounded by a UNESCO World Heritage Marine Park, but is also home to a national park, giving you exclusive access to some of the most protected natural areas in the world. From dense forests to underwater wonderlands, these are all right at your fingertips on Orpheus Island. All of the rooms, suites and villas of this private resort face the ocean, and accommodate 42 in total, ensuring that it never gets overly busy. The resort’s executive chef creates a fresh menu daily, making the most of locally sourced ingredients and pairing dishes with wines and beers from the region, promising guests a decadent meal in the resort’s luxurious open-air restaurant.
Moyo Island is a protected nature and marine reserve just east of Bali, and Amanwana is the only resort located on this island. The resort consists of 20 luxury tents, either a couple of steps away from the ocean or hidden deep within the jungle canopy. The tents are done up exquisitely, with wooden walls, king sized beds and air conditioning, providing the same level of luxury as a five-star hotel. There is plenty to see and do here, and a stay at the resort grants you exclusive access to the protected park, which boasts tropical jungles, waterfalls, freshwater pools and a huge variety of wildlife. OROGOLD also recommends exploring the blue waters and untouched coral reefs around the island, with the resort’s PADI certified dive master on hand to take you out on snorkelling and diving excursions. For those of you who prefer to be above the water, there is a luxury cruiser available to take you to visit some of the nearby islands, each of which offers its own unique range of activities.
A private island resort offers a vacation that is simply like no other. Whether you are trekking through a dense Indonesian jungle or exploring the underwater beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, these private resorts promise that your time spent in your accommodation will be just as enjoyable as your time spent exploring the area.
