Belize City, Belize
Here, on Royal Belize, a private island 10 miles off the coast of central Belize, it’s only you and the staff “marooned” for a fantasy-filled stay. Offered only to single parties, the island's 3 oceanfront villas can accommodate up to 8 guests. A Grand Palapa cum outdoor living room, as well as myriad nooks and crannies (including a seemingly endless pier called World's End), ensure languor. There's also plenty to do for the more active-inclined, such as snorkeling, sailing and fishing. Staff includes a personal chef, dedicated concierge and masseuse -- even a boat captain who can perform marriage ceremonies.
