We've scoped out the scene in nine way-exotic places—Tahiti! Vietnam! South Africa! India!—to help you plan the vacay you'll be bragging about, well, forever.


Three Must-Sees Tiny prop planes propel you from the main isle, Viti Levu, to secluded little guys. On Matangi Private Island Resort, you'll find a favorite perch in one of the tree houses. Doubles from $650 (year-round), with meals.

Ashley presented the final rose at Vomo Island Resort, where pairs sleep off lunch feasts in their standalone villas. Doubles from $762 (year-round), with meals.

Fourteen bures (cottages) plus 14 beaches equal bliss on celebrity fave Turtle Island. The routine here? Wake, snorkel, grab a bottle of champers, picnic on a deserted beach. Guests eat together at dinner, which means Charlize Theron could be your date. Doubles from $2,499 (year-round), all-inclusive.

Don't Forget to Pack: Tons of swimwear and cover-ups: They take up little luggage space, and let's be honest—you won't be wearing much else.
