There is a huge difference between getting away from the dull and tedious everyday life and actually getting away from all of it. If you fall in the former category, a week-long trip to a resort in the Dominican Republic or Cuba will be enough to quench your thirst. While the latter category requires a little more moolah, it is the best way to get first-class amenities along with “complete solitude”.
I know a lot of people (and some of you readers are too) who dream of owning an entire island, but disappointing though it might sound, chances are high that it will remain what it is – a dream. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t rent a private island and spend the most memorable week of your life with your loved ones.
Here is the list of some of the best private islands which can be rented:
#1. Anonyme Island: Located less than a kilometer off the east coast of the Mahé Island, the Anonyme Island is well-known for the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The island is also home to the Aldabra giant tortoises. You can take delight in the luxury chalets, Jacuzzis and air-conditioned suites even being cut-off from the rest of the world. The starting price is approximately $800 for a week.
#2. Kamalame Cay: Kamalame Cay is one of the least-known islands of the Bahamas, and this is what makes it so desirable for the ones seeking peace and quiet. Lying in a hammock and enjoying the cool ocean breeze will take away every bit of stress from your body and soul. Yes, you can rent the entire island but the starting price is around $9,900 for a day.
#3. Dream Island: The Dream Island is one of the top dream destinations for honeymooners. Just a 10-minute flight away from Tahiti, sitting on a white sandy beach literally in the middle of nowhere is one feeling everyone wants to experience at least once in a lifetime. And a swim in its lagoon is nothing short of heavenly. The starting price is approximately $2,500 for a week.
#4. Wilson Island: Part of the Great Barrier Reef, the Wilson Island in Australia can be reached from the Heron Island in a boat. Rustic and traditional, the accommodation is permanent tents lining the beach. If lucky, you can even catch sight of a humpback whale or two. And as the island is in the Great Barrier Reef area, snorkeling is a must. The starting price is around $600 for a room per night.
This is your chance to experience that exhilarating castaway feeling where you are the king of your own small island.
