Stay

Banwa Private IslandPalawan, Philippines

Sure, staying on a beautiful tropical island is good. But having your own island is where it's really at.

Banwa Private Island is an all-villa luxury island within a marine reserve in north-eastern Palawan, Indonesia. You can make the entire island (barring of course, villa staff) is entirely yours, giving you the freedom to do whatever.

Pristine stretches of beach and clear waters will make this feel less Robinson Crusoe, and more 'epic luxury'. Swim, dive, snorkel or fish to your heart's content, or take a sunset cruise.

The starry nights at Banwa are legendary - bring your partner, kids, 10 of your best mates...whoever - and have this slice of paradise for yourself.
