Allow our team to help you charter a private jet so you’re taken care of from the moment you step out your front door.
Kamalame Cay, Bahamas
Set in the Bahamas off the sparsely populated island of Andros, Kamalame Cay is a barefoot-chic retreat designed for the castaways at heart. The family-owned Kamalame Cay doesn’t offer the glitz and glam of many luxury beach resorts. Instead, the indulgences lie in the miles of private white sand beach, the coral reef teeming with life just off the shore, and the natural hospitality that makes you feel like a part of the family. If you dream of spending your days reading long-neglected books, taking a languid swim, enjoying a sundowner with the owners, and not checking your email — there is only Wi-Fi in one spot on the property — Kamalame Cay may be your new home, at least for a few days each year.
Accommodations range from simple Marina Rooms that overlook the bay to the more luxurious three- to six-bedroom Residences. Nightly rates during high season range from $275 in a Marina Room to $4,565 in a Residence. The easiest way to get to the island is to charter a private plane from Nassau to the Andros Airport and take a five-minute boat ride to the island. To learn more, visit the official website.
Kokomo Island, Fiji
The newest private island resort in Fiji, Kokomo Island is an unspoiled paradise with white sand beaches at its shores and a lush rainforest at its heart. The property, set to open in March 2017, offers a seemingly endless list of activities, top-notch service, and fresh, organic cuisine. The Great Astrolabe Reef lies just below crystal-clear waters meters off the shore, making for perfect snorkeling and diving. Guests can spend their days fishing, kayaking, playing tennis, or pampering themselves at the authentic Fijian spa. Yet with all the activities on offer, no one will blame you if you decide to spend the entire day at the spectacular pool, which overlooks a series of mountainous islands out at sea.
Kokomo Island is set to open on 31 March 2017. Accommodations include 21 Beachfront Villas with private pools, five Hilltop Luxury Residences, and the exclusive Owners’ Beachfront Residence. The all-inclusive rates include all accommodations, meals, and a range of activities starting at $1,995 per night. To get to the property, book a flight to Nadi International Airport in Fiji. From there, charter a private plane to Kokomo Island. For more information, visit the official website.
Surrounded by a vibrant coral reef and warm turquoise waters that lightly lap the shore, Milaidhoo is a barefoot-chic island paradise with vast private pools and luxurious overwater villas. But before you assume that Milaidhoo is yet another fabulous Maldivian five-star resort, this boutique property offers something a little different. Here, every element can be personalized and privatized so that guests can craft every moment of their ideal beach holiday. Go for a ride on a Maldivian sailing boat to explore coral reefs and deserted islands and only head back to land when you want. Pick herbs in the garden with the chef or design new cocktails with the mixologist. Here, the island is your oyster.
Accommodations are available in two categories: Beach Pool Villas set on the sand and Water Pool Villas set on stilts over the Indian Ocean. All villas feature Maldivian artwork and custom furnishings, an oversized private pool, an outdoor daybed, and ocean views. Pricing begins at approximately $2,800 per room per night. Rates include breakfast and dinner daily, daily yoga and meditation classes, and much more. To get to the property, fly to Male and take a seaplane directly to the island.

Turneffe Island Resort
Located 35 miles off the coast of Belize, Turneffe Island Resort is an eco-conscious private island resort with a classic Hemingway feel.

Turneffe Island Resort offers a wide variety of activities, but their most impressive offerings appeal to divers and fishermen. More than 70 dive sites are accessible from the island, including the famous dive sites of the Great Blue Hole and the Elbow.

Goldson International Airport. From there, the property can arrange a two-hour boat ride or a helicopter to the island. For more information, visit the official website.
