Miniloc Island: the Philippines' best-kept secret?El Nido, Philippines

Fancy yourself a bit of a Survivor, yet can’t pry yourself away from holiday comforts? This is an El Nido Resort: a luxurious eco island that’s been recognised as a ‘conservation-minded place on a mission to protect the local environment’.

All rooms are thatched-roofed and rustically furnished with indigenous Filipino materials which you can admire as you walk out to your private sea-view veranda. It has over 50 beaches and caves that lead to private lagoons, so you can swim, snorkel and then splurge on a private island dinner, which comes with your own chef and waiter.

Surrounded by white sandy beaches, limestone cliffs, lagoons, tropical plants and almost as many monkeys as there are people, you’ll wish you got lost more often.
