When seclusion is paramount, choose one of these new far-flung hideaways. • The most recent addition to Grace Leo-Andrieu's stylish oeuvre is L'Orangerie (St.-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France; 800/223-6800 or 33-4/93-76-31-00; www.royal-riviera.com; suites from $270), a private enclave at the Royal Riviera hotel. • The Point, a 4,000-square-foot villa at Fiji's Vatulele Island Resort (Vatulele; 800/828-9146; www.vatulele.com; villa from $2,250, including all meals), has two pools you can call your own. • Little Dix Bay (Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands; 888/767-3966; www.littledixbay.com; two-bedroom villas from $1,700) has opened two villas on an isolated stretch of beach. Both have white-on-white interiors and outdoor dining pavilions. • The owners of Malabar House, a boutique hotel in Fort Cochin, India, have created Privacy at Sanctuary Bay (Kerala; 91-484/221-6666; www.malabarhouse.com; cottage $180), a two-bedroom bungalow hidden in Kerala's backwaters. Here you can do yoga and watch the houseboats slip by.
