Azura, Benguerra Island

 

 

Where: Mozambique, Africa

What's to Love: The hotel consists of 16 private villas on a semi-private island accessible only by helicopter. Most of them have their own infinity pool. All of them come with two full-time butlers who make it their job to surprise you throughout the day. You can have lunch served on a desert island off-shore one day and in an abandoned old fishing boat another day. The snorkeling nearby is world-class. The accommodations are perfect and the service is warm.

Good to Know: Splurge for a luxury villa with private pool, and be sure to take advantage of the exceptionally well curated activities offered

 

Monaci delle Terre Nere

 

  

 

Where: The slopes of Mt. Etna, Sicily

What's to Love: A boutique hotel set on an old vineyard estate with about ten rooms. The pool is cut into steppes in Mt. Etna, and olives from the nearby trees bob in the pool. You can hike through their organic farm, getting lost under orange trees, or just sit on the mountain by the pool, staring off to the ocean in the distance.

Good to Know: The double deluxe Floreale has a terrace and a very cool modern bathroom with a big tub. Definitely eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the hotel. The orange and grape juices, pressed from the estate's orchards, are fantastic.

 

 

Song Saa

 


 

Where: A private island, Cambodia

What's to Love: Fly in via seaplane from Phnom Penh or by boat from Sihanoukville to reach 27 fisherman-style, over-water and jungle bungalows on the Koh Rong archipelago. All have outdoor showers and private pools.

Good to Know: No matter how you spend your days, at midnight, you should be skinny-dipping in the bioluminescent waters.

 

 

Ponta dos Ganchos

 

 

 

Where: Florianopolis, Brazil

What's to Love: You can reserve a private island at night for dinner-for-two; approach by walking over a candlelit bridge.

Good to Know: It's a secluded, adults-only retreat on a peninsula surrounded by rainforest.

 

 

Hotel Villa Amor                                                                                          

 

Where: Sayulita, Mexico

What's to Love: A sexy, boho paradise in a charming town with well-worn thatched roofs, mosquito netting, and white linen curtains blowing in the ocean breeze. Insane seaside views, affordable prices, ocean-front suite with endless views of the blue-on-blue Pacific. The hotel's Italian restaurant serves amazing wood-burning pizzas and fresh ocean catches.

Good to Know: Request a villa with a private plunge pool. Bathing suits optional.

 

 

Ladera Resort

 

Where: St. Lucia, The Caribbean

What's to Love: None of the rooms have a fourth wall, so you wake up every morning with the sun rising over the Piton Mountains.

Good to Know: Get a room with a plunge pool so you never have to leave.
