Warm up your winter with a private jet getaway to the islands. There is nothing like some sun on your skin and warm sand between your toes to beat away the winter chill. Grab the family or a friend, your swimsuit, flip flops and a good book and be transported to what will look and feel like a whole new world-which it is! Here are our favorite choices for island getaways to beat the winter blues.
Tahiti Four Seasons, Bora Bora
Charter a private jet to the South Pacific and visit Bora Bora, the most famous of French Polynesia’s Leeward Islands. We recommend the Tahiti Four Seasons Resort for couples and particularly for families. The water bungalows offer scenery below the water as well as pristine vistas of sandy beaches and nearby mountains rising from the sea. Activities abound at this resort including a kids club, spa, complimentary non-motorized water sports and a lagoon wildlife sanctuary. Don’t forget to sit on the beach a bit too!
Utila Bay Island, Honduras
Utila Island, Honduras is nestled in the Caribbean Sea 18 miles off the Honduran port of La Ceiba. The island is only 11 km long and 4 km wide at the widest point, surrounded by coral reefs and pristine ocean water ideal for scuba and snorkeling. In fact, this is some of the best scuba diving in the world; so if scuba is your thing, this is your island. In terms of lodging, there are some luxury private homes for rent as well as a few all inclusive resorts. You can even rent and stay on your own private tropical island (Little Cay or Sandy Cay.) This island is off the beaten path, and when you charter a private jet you can fly directly to the small airport on the island.
Hanalei Colony Resort, Kauai, Hawaii
Charter a private jet to the North Shore of Kauai to experience the Hanalei Colony Resort. Warm up your senses with unrivaled hospitality and the lush landscapes of this special island. No shopping malls or high rises here; Mother Nature is in charge on Kauai with land, sea and sky. And the Hanalei Colony Resort offers serenity and comfort so you can thaw out in style.
Sandy Lane Resort, Barbados
The Sandy Lane Resort has everything you need for that perfect Caribbean getaway. Overlooking the sea on a tranquil coral sand beach shaded with mahogany trees, this resort is a timeless classic with its elegant architecture and spacious comfort. Choose from hotel rooms and suites to a stunning private villa. Enjoy golf, gourmet dining, an outstanding spa, sports facilities and of course, the exceptional Barbadian hospitality.
Travel to what truly feels like another world – the Seychelles. An archipelago in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles may be one of the last frontiers on the planet, with breathtaking natural beauty still untouched by man. Culturally the Seychelles feels quite cosmopolitan, reflecting many different influences, including French and British vestiges of colonialism. The Seychelles is a living museum of natural wonder, both under the sea and above and all levels of exploration will be available to you during your visit. There are a few islands to choose from; we suggest the Dhevatara Beach Hotel on Praslin Island.
