The Isolationists: You want to roll like Robinson Crusoe...but with a nicer place to sleep.
North Island, Seychelles.
A self-described "Noah's Ark": People arrive in twos at this Seychelles island sanctuary dedicated to preserving the local flora and fauna. And, with only 11 beachfront villas, guests get a lot of attention, too. To reach North Island, couples take a 20-minute helicopter ride or a catamaran from the island of Mahe. The villas, handcrafted by local artisans, are sublimely spacious—each has two bedrooms, two showers, a private plunge pool, a massage area, and a deck. If you're looking to re-create that famous surf kiss in From Here to Eternity, request Villa 11, which has a private beach. Should you want to see other people, public spaces include a library, a gym, and two bars. For activities, try night diving, sea kayaking, day trips to neighboring islands and, if you visit between March and November, watching sea turtles hatch on the beach.
