Far from the Madding Crowd

Fogo Island, Canada
Remote it might be, but devoid of luxury it ain’t. For it’s on this rocky outcrop in Canada that you’ll find the Fogo Island Inn, a sleek 29-suite hotel. Spend the day enjoying hikes and nature walks and the evening taking a dip in the rooftop hot tubs, kicking back in the private cinema or enjoying a stroll around its contemporary art gallery.

Wa Ale Island, Myanmar

If you really want to get away from it all, head to the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar. Within this group of 800 islands, you will find the picturesque hideaway that is Wa Ale Island Resort. Comprising just 11 tented beach villas and three treetop villas, up to 28 guests can stay on this island set in a national park filled with whale sharks, dugongs, manta rays and turtles.

05
Faroe Islands, Denmark

This Nordic hideaway was named as one of the hottest places to visit in 2019, so get there before the crowds. Its worth it for the Faroe Islands’ Michelin-starred restaurant alone. The coast-side restaurant Koks serves up a 17-course degustation menu featuring sea tangle, winged kelp and a rhubarb compote to cleanse your palate.

06
Bequia, Caribbean

Looking for a Caribbean island that’s free of TV stars, then head to Bequia (pronounced Bekway). This hilly outpost of the Grenadines is off-the-beaten track, so it’s only the yachts that seem to find it. Take a walk along the scenic harbour, visit the turtle sanctuary and enjoy a picnic on a nearby deserted island. It can be pricey to get to, but that’s why you will pretty much have the place to yourself.

07
Fernando de Noronha, Brazil

This volcanic archipelago that lies 350 kilometres off Brazil’s north coast is renowned for natural beaches and clear waters filled with sea turtles, dolphins and rays. Nannai Noronha is expected to open in March 2019. It’s owned by the same team as the Nannai Resort & Spa in Mura Alto. Conde Nast called that hotel the most romantic on Earth so we’re expecting big things from Nannai Noronha.
