Our tropical paradise checklist may have been a big ask: peace and quiet, abundant reef life (turtles top of the list), great seafood, barefoot dining on the beach, and a private über-luxe villa with its own pool and direct reef access. But then, we were celebrating our 18th anniversary (of the day we met), so we wanted to do it right. Milaidhoo, a new, small (50-villa) luxury resort in the stunning UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll in the Maldives, looked perfect.
The largest sand island in the world, Fraser Island is a romantic tropical destination just off the coast of Queensland and accessible from Hervey Bay. Offering up some of the most diverse environments and unique experiences in the one place, the Island is where you'll find the four-star Kingfisher Bay Resort.
When you think of an über-glam island escape Bora Bora or the Maldives might spring to mind, but for something equally luxurious there’s a tropical hideaway much closer to home. Say hello to Fiji’s Likuliku Lagoon Resort.
Just on Brisbane’s doorstep, only a short ferry ride away, is an island destination that's perfect for a weekend away or romantic escape. Located on Moreton Island, Tangalooma Island Resort is a place of laid-back vibes, beautiful water views and amazing animal encounters.
Up the accommodation ante on your next trip to The Lion City and stay at the legendary Raffles Singapore.
Synonymous with Singapore, and of course, the Singapore Sling, there is no other place in this beautiful city that generates such adoration and admiration by locals and visitors alike. And, for a good reason, as we can attest to following our short weekend break away.
