When looking for peaceful vacation options in travel blogs or agencies, all-inclusive resorts are often one of the most appealing suggestions. Especially if you have the money to spend.
They have everything you need to relax and enjoy yourself so you hardly even need to get out of there to have an unforgettable vacation: tasty food (both traditional and cross-cultural food), amazing beaches, pools, marvelous views, and every service and activity imaginable from spas to nightlife fun… a resort is like a little world build apart from reality.
If you are one of those people that value privacy and luxury above everything else regardless of price (these types of hotel rooms are far from being cheap), this article is for you. Below you will find 8 amazing private island resorts that are all you need for a dream vacation.
#1 – Bedarra, Australia
Bedarra is a secret resort located in the outer Great Barrier Reef that can accommodate a maximum of only 18 guests, so your vacation is guaranteed to be extremely peaceful. The resort covers 100 hectares of Bedarra Island’s tropical forest and can only be accessed from the Mission Beach by boat or helicopter.
And if you are worried about the other guests interfering with your privacy, you should know that the resort’s ten guest villas are scattered in the middle of the forest.
Each villa has its own unique features that offer a differentiated experience, so make sure you get a good look at what each one provides before booking.
Prices start at 1,390$ per night.
#2 – Soneva Jani, Maldives
Maldives is a dream destination for many people. This resort located on the island of Medhufaru is perhaps what heaven looks like. You can fall asleep surrounded by a blue lagoon in one of its 25 villas– the rooms themselves are also small islands over the water.
Since this is such a remote place, don’t expect to leave the resort often to meet the nearest civilization: the Male International Airport is 40 minutes away by seaplane (the flight is very charming).
But don’t worry, there are plenty of activities for you, especially if you want to explore the depths of the ocean or play sports – the main island also offers overwater cinema, inspiring gardens, restaurants, and an Observatory.
Prices start at 3,139$ per night.
#3 – Como Parrot Cay, Turks, and Caicos
Hardly anyone has ever head of Turks and Caicos, two groups of tropical islands part of the Lucayan Archipelago near the Bahamas. But that is exactly where this lovely resort is located.
The Como Parrot Cay is set on a private island of 1,000 acres and offers luxurious and diverse activities to its guests, from holistic therapies to yoga lessons and underwater exploration.
You can book a private villa to ensure even more privacy. That way you can get your own pool, beach access, and even a butler to fulfill your requests at any time – including in the middle of the night.
Prices start at 2,100$ per night (9,200$ for a private villa)
#4 – North Island, Seychelles
The Seychelles archipelago consists of 115 islands and is known for its luxury resorts and heavenly beaches. But it is hard to compete against the North Island resort and its 11 magnificent villas – one of which has over 8 thousand square feet and every luxury detail one can think of.
Each has its own private beach and provides you all the comfort and privacy you could ask for. Activities and experiences include scuba diving, fishing, kayaking, spa, sunset cruises, among many others.
This is the perfect place for a special occasion such as a honeymoon or wedding anniversary. It’s a trip that you and your loved one will certainly forever remember.
Prices start at 7,100$ per night.

At first, Montenegro may not sound like an appealing destination for a luxury vacation, but the Aman Sveti Stefan will certainly convince you otherwise.
This private island village, built in the 15th century (mostly inhabited by fishermen back in those days), combines its history with an exquisite experience capable of leaving even the most demanding traveler astonished.
An infinity pool overlooking the Mediterranean, a pink-sand beach, a fabulous spa, local restaurants, boat tours are some of the things visitors can expect. If you prefer historical environments over tropical beaches, the Aman Sveti Stefan resort is the right place for you!
Prices start at 700$ per night.
#6 – Royal Davui Island Resort, Fiji
Much like Seychelles, the Fiji island also has a few fantastic resorts, but we decided to highlight the Royal Davui Island Resort. It’s a private island resort that combines stylish modern features with the Fijian traditional wooden construction and thatched roofs.
The result: a picturesque scenario that makes it another great option for a honeymoon. Imagine you and your loved one on a private pool watching the dolphins swim across the blue lagoon… what an incredible setting to be in.
Prices start at 2,525$ per night.
#7 – Guana Island, British Virgin Islands
The Guana Island resort perfectly combines its serene and opulent interiors with the natural beauty of the island.
It is possible to spend an entire week of vacation on this island and visit a different beach each day. That’s right, there are seven beaches! And you can also choose if you want to swim in the Atlantic or the Caribbean Sea.
If you want to take your entire family on the vacation experience of a lifetime, it is possible to rent the entire island for the modest sum of 23,500$ – during the off-season. It can accommodate up to 42 people.
Prices start at 1,925$ per night (although there are cheaper options – as low as 795$ per night if you opt for a room instead of a villa).
#8 – Private Island Retreat, Greece

Just 45 minutes away from Athens, this privately owned island is a great option (and relatively affordable) if you always dream of renting an entire island for you and your friends or family.
There are only a few buildings on the island: some historical houses, a century-old villa, and a chapel. During the stay, guests have at their disposal a chef and full staff to guarantee that no luxury or service is missing.
Prices start at 6,700$ per week (12 people)
