Lissenung Island Resort: Papua New Guinea
At $190 a night this resort might seem a little pricey, however, bear in mind that that cost covers all of your meals while you are vacationing. Located 400 miles northwest of the main island, Lissenung Island Resort houses four basic bungalows that accommodate up to 14 guests. The huts, which are built in the local tradition style, feature thatched roofs with bamboo walls. Each one also features a beautiful porch accompanied by comfortable chairs for conversation, watching the sun rise/set, or simply to relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Rosario Resort & Spa: Orcas Island, Washington
This beautiful 40-acre resort on Washington State’s San Juan Islands looks out over East Sound and Cascade Bay. The Resort sits on land that is shared with Moran Mansion, the former home of shipbuilder and onetime Seattle Mayor Robert Moran. The Rosario Resort offers beautiful guest rooms surrounded by nature with amazing views of the island and the nearby Bays. One big benefit of the resort is that there is no cell service available while visiting. This means that you truly can get away from the hustle and bustle of life outside of your island oasis.
Pusser’s Marina Cay: British Virgin Islands
This beautiful location is perfect for those who wish to learn how to surf, sail, or snorkel. The island is surrounded by a shallow white-sand beach and receives shelter from nearby islands. This means that the waters around it are calm and easy to navigate if you are a novice at recreational water activities. Set on eight magnificent acres, the resort features eight breezy, beautiful rooms, each with a veranda that looks out over the turquoise the Caribbean Sea. Rooms here run approximately $155 a night for double occupancy.
