Another private island resort in BVI, Peter Island Resort was named by Conde Nast Traveler as one of its “Best Places to Stay in the World.” The 1,800-acre island, the largest private island among the 60 or so that make up the British Virgin Islands, is said to have been visited by a number of famous figures, including Sir Francis Drake, Christopher Columbus and Blackbeard, who is believed to have buried treasure here and marooned his men on nearby Dead Chest Island; they later washed up on Peter Island’s Deadman’s Bay. It offers all of the exclusivity and romance you could ever want, in one of 52 rooms set among the mountainous terrain and five gorgeous beaches.

Before you arrive, the villa director will customize your stay so that you’ll have everything you need from the moment you step onto the island, including personal villa staff, European chefs, a private helicopter pad and SUV. Look forward to relaxing treatments at the vast spa, built own its own secluded beach at the edge of the water, as well as snorkeling among sea turtles in the brilliant coral reefs.
