BONEFISH CAY, BAHAMAS

Independently sustainable, with self-generated electricity and desalination facility, the 13-acre Bonefish Cay in Abaco Islands in the Bahamas is hurricane-proof and has a sturdy jetty. The formerly deserted Bonefish Cay underwent a six-year reconstruction in 2000 and all the service facilities, kitchen, workshop, mechanical service rooms, laundry room, diving shop, storages, generator room were laid with white tiles on the floor and walls. The shape of the island and a bonefish discovered in the region gave it its name. This fisherman's paradise has two long, sandy beaches where one can paddle out in ocean-going kayaks and watch some dolphins. A multitude of coral and fish around the unspoiled coral reef is revealed during low tide, which presents an ideal time for snorkeling and diving. The two villas consist of an owner's suite and eight additional suites, including those in the caretakers’ villa – all of which can accommodate up to 16 people. The 750sqft owner's suite has a dressing room, separate toilet/ bidet facility and private telephone, fax and Internet service. The central glass shower and two-person bathtub are set in imported Brazilian pink granite.

There are several islands around Bonefish Cay that offer dining and shopping. Within a 15-minute boat travel is Spanish Cay, an official port of entry with a 5,000-ft airstrip, shuttle to harbour and a permanent custom and immigrations service. Entertainment services in Spanish Cay includes a full marina, bar, restaurant, hotel, swimming pool and four tennis courts. PRICE: US$14.5 MILLION

Unexploited and virtually unexplored for economic growth, Tipaemaua is situated in the ring of mountain island of Raiatea and is surrounded by a stretch of a lagoon. This second largest Polynesian island with white sandy beaches and coconut trees is in the same vein as Bora Bora or Moorea sans the tourism hype. Uturoa, the capital of Raiatea, where replenishment supplies can be obtained, is a 10-km boat journey away. The nearest shop in Avera is located within 3km range. Away from the surrounding networks of commercial operations and transport services, Tipaemaua is an ideal breather for yacht owners and ďŹ shermen. Transportation is at ease from the open sea to the 29.65-acre, stand-alone motu, which sits at the deep-water entrance into the lagoon. A pier that can also be used is adjacent to the fringe. Aerial transport is also within reach for independent and frequent air travellers. Aircraft owners can operate at the nearest airstrip in Uturoa, 10km from Tipaemaua, while commercial plane travellers can make arrangements at the nearest airport in Papeete, which is 220km away. PRICE: ¤2.5 MILLION

TAVANIPUPU ISLAND, SOLOMON ISLANDS

Revamped from an overgrown island by English interior decorator Dennis Bellote and his late partner Keith Paske in 1970, Tavanipupu is a privately owned, five-star island in Marau Sound, Solomon Islands. Just 25 minutes east by plane from the Solomon Islands capital of Honiara, it is accessible via non-stop flights offered by Virgin Australia and Solomon Airlines between Brisbane, Australia and Honiara, Solomon Islands. The 37-acre tropical island is surrounded by a vast turquoise lagoon with lines of coconut palms along the manicured lawns. Temperature hovers around a constant 30°, which is ideal for yacht owners and other ocean explorers. The diverse underwater life forms can be observed at spots for scuba divers and on boat excursions around the native village and uninhabited tropical isles. The resort on the island is managed by a professional service team, and consists of seven recently renovated bungalows, discrete staff housing, a professionally designed commercial kitchen, secure storage and a bar and restaurant complex.
