Nothing can ruin a honeymoon like other people. Luckily, there are private islands.
Turtle Island, located in the center of Fiji’s Yasawa archipelago, has become known as one of the country’s most exclusive retreats for honeymooners.
There are only 14 villas on the island, rented out to couples, so there can only ever be a maximum of 28 guests across the 500 acres.
Each villa — or bure, as they’re known in Fiji — has a unique design and beachfront location. Guests can spend all their time inside their island-chic rooms, or head outside onto a private veranda, complete with hot tub, outdoor shower, and a day bed in the sun.
And Turtle Island allows guests to take room service to the next level, with private dinners on their own strip of the beach. Or they can venture out onto the island and attend nightly parties with fellow guests and locals.
The luxury all-inclusive resort not only includes all meals and drinks but also champagne picnics, two half-hour massages, scuba diving, horseback riding, and a butler service. There’s swimming, snorkeling, wind surfing, sailing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, and island tours to keep everyone occupied.
And guests can also take part in meke, lovo or kava ceremonies as part of the Turtle Island experience.
It's not cheap — rates start at $2,079 per night — but it's more affordable than buying your own island. And if you're really looking for a deal, you can rent a private island off the coast of Belize for less than $500 a night.
