, Laucala Island, , Fiji

Austrian entrepreneur Dietrich Mateschitz—CEO of Red Bull—is the force behind the new Laucala Island, a 3,000-acre private getaway that was previously owned by business tycoon Malcolm Forbes. The resort’s staff greets guests at a tiny airstrip and delivers them to one of 25 villas set in a coconut plantation. The 3,220-square-foot villas, made of mahogany and Fijian vesi woods, are outfitted with outdoor showers, private pools, and spa pavilions. The mainly organic, Fijian restaurant dishes up yuca ravioli and Pacific king prawn kokoda (the local take on ceviche).
