#TravelTuesday: Two private islands for your dream getaway

The great escape

Text: Bianca Husodo

Sometimes privacy is the best luxury of all

There's nothing worse than taking a red-eye flight in hopes of an exotic seaside vista only to find a filthy, packed beach — but imagine lounging on your exclusive stretch of pristine sand surrounded by crystal clear waters. An entire island allotted to you, your family and friends: secluded, secret and serene. Dream no more as Private Plan indulges you with two island paradises to call your own (temporarily):

1. Coco Privé

Tucked in the midst of the Indian Ocean is the tranquil Coco Privé Kuda Hithi Island. It's the 1.4 hectare hideaway with luxury villas set atop, along with a stunning beach, infinity pools, spa, jacuzzi, library, cocktail bar and wine cellar for you and your travelling companions to relish. From a romantic sunset dinner in the beach, daily spa treatments to unlimited diving experience for certified divers, the island is designed to ingeniously exceed your expectations. Sleeping just 12 people in a selection of suites, the limited capacity means optimum privacy as you sit back, enjoy the first-class service, and chow down on top-notch food.


2. Tagomago

This little slice of 60-hectare heaven nestles in the Mediterranean seas, just a stone's throw away from the cosmopolitan coast of Ibiza. Its only mansion is located at the heart of the island — offering five double rooms with bathrooms en suite for a capacity of ten guests. Surrounded by a reserve of nature, Tagomago boasts a breathtaking panorama of the glistening ocean and the infinite blue sky, suitable for an idyllic island exploring. If you're up for a more sporty grind, the resort offers endless activity options: jet-skiing, water-skiing, canoeing, windsurfing, snorkelling or even pilates classes in an open air fitness. Neighbouring the Formentera Island famed for its stellar turquoise waters, a 30-minute motor yacht ride will get you there in a jiffy.
