Why a private island getaway should be on your bucket list

Private island getaway Indonesia - Bawah Reserve, a beautiful tropical paradise small luxury private island resort with sandy beaches, palm trees, sunsets, and blue all around you

Private islands are the stuff of tropical dreams, aren’t they? Which probably explains why there are a staggering 5.8 billion web pages linked to a Google search of “private island”. Most of these are on the subject of either buying a private island or living on a private island – it seems many of us are keen to find private islands for sale, to know how much a private island costs, or how to buy a private island. There’s even a fair number asking about private island caretaker jobs!

 

We’re allowed to dream, right? But for most of us, a simple private island escape would be quite
enough. (For now, at least…) And wherever you look in the world, you’ll have a large number of locations offering top private island destinations: Indonesia, Florida, Seychelles, Maldives, Bahamas, Belize, and French Polynesia are a few of the most popular.

Given the current global pandemic and the need for us all to rethink the way in which we travel,
a private island may be the ideal location for your first post-pandemic trip. Here are just a few reasons why:


Remote

What defines an island: "island, any area of land smaller than a continent and entirely surrounded by water. Islands may occur in oceans, seas, lakes, or rivers. A group of islands is called an archipelago." 

Secluded, isolated and exclusive are the top descriptors for a private island resort. A private
island resort is pretty much always remote, making it a perfectly peaceful sanctuary where you
can regain a sense of calm and serenity. Some island resorts have more than one island – Bawah Reserve has six! and can offer various deserted island experiences. You could even have your own island for a day!


Beauty

Exotic private island resorts have a natural beauty that is unparalleled. Think blue lagoons, white
sandy private tropical beaches, lush green vegetation, amazing sunsets, beach dining and, overwater bungalows.


Private Transport

Private island resorts are mostly accessed by their own private transportation.  The seaplane
flight at Bawah Reserve is a luxurious private experience that’s often described as one of the highlights of a Bawah getaway.

 

Resort

Some of the world’s most amazing vacation rentals can be found on private island resorts.
Private island rental – i.e. renting an entire island – is also a possibility.  Elang at Bawah
Reserve offers a new inclusive private island rental experience and is a popular option for those
who want to rent a private island for a wedding, honeymoon or, family reunion.


Luxury Accommodation

Private island accommodation like private island villas with private pools, overwater bungalows
tented beach suites and, beach houses add to the appeal of an island escape. What could be dreamier than falling asleep to the lapping of gentle waves?


Activities

While many are seeking pure relaxation, island vacations don’t have to be boring! On the
contrary, there is often too much to do in the time you have there. Whether cruising the beautiful lagoons, going for a nature hike or, taking a simple cooking class, you will never be bored!
