Hideaways that help save the earth without skimping on romance

Turtle Island Resort

There's space for only 14 couples at a time at this private-island resort in the South Pacific's Yasawa Archipelago, which makes for extreme serenity. Both the 1949 and 1980 Blue Lagoon movies were shot here, and by limiting accommodations to only 28 guests, the resort helps sustain the natural beauty of clear blue water and white-sand beaches that has been captured on film. You won't come across any televisions or tennis courts here, but you will find more than 500,000 trees, which have been planted on the island during a 28-year reforestation program. The resort's kitchen, which is stocked by way of a four-acre organic garden, is filled with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, and showcases the sweet rewards of going green. —Kara Zuaro
