6 Top Hotels on Their Own Private Islands

Somehow, staying on an island for your vacation sounds much more glamorous than staying on the mainland, and if it is a private island with just one resort on it, even better.

There are a few magical places in the world where that is the norm, just think about the Maldives. Every island is so small, they can only put one resort on it, apart from the main island, that is.

Lets take a look at some of the most luxury hotels on their own private island...

Taj Lake Palace Hotel, Udaipur, India

The Lake Palace was built around 1750 as a summer place for the Maharana of Udaipur, and is literally a palace in the lake; there is no space around it in the water, just a mooring for boats carrying guests. Today, it is a luxury hotel, and surely one of the most beautiful there is. With a lush garden in the center, a superb restaurant, a rather freezing-cold pool, and simply breathtaking views, this is one of the world’s best spots for a special occasion.

Matangi Island, Fiji

The owner still lives on this island, and it has been in his family since 1878. There are only a few bures, and one main building where you take all your meals, which are always fresh and locally sourced. There is a spa and a scuba club, and one horseshoe-shaped bay where you can be dropped off by boat and have it just to yourself for the day, and the snorkeling is sensational.

Fregate Island, Seychelles

Fregate lies a short boat or helicopter ride from the main island of Mahe and is a perfect hideaway with only 17 villas and one Presidential Villa, with beaches that have a “don’t disturb” sign and a phone to call for cocktails. You can eat in the main building, where there is also a lovely bar and pool, but equally, you can have your meals served on your veranda.

Burgh Island Hotel, England

The Burgh Island Hotel is a true iconic example of the Art Deco era and has been popular throughout its history. So much so, that Agatha Christie wrote two novels here, which were also later filmed here for the authentic setting, and Noel Coward stayed, as did Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, the aviator Amy Johnson, Premier Winston Churchill, and even Josephine Baker and the Beatles, if not all at the same time.

Burj Al Arab, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Burj Al Arab is not only Dubai’s most iconic luxury hotel, but it sits on its own, man made island, reached by a causeway open only to guests. It might not be a private island like the ones mentioned above, set in a vast ocean, miles from anywhere, but it may well be. Once you step across the threshold, you step into another world, and while the blingy décor might blind you at first, you get accustomed to the over-the-top splendor rather quickly.

Heron Island, Queensland, Australia

The island is a wonderful nature reserve with a research station on it, far from the coast and host to countless birds and an amazing array of nature’s spectacles. To add that special luxury uptick, you can arrive and leave by seaplane, a great way to travel
