Private Paradise: Kamalame Cay
For pure — and posh — escapism, there’s Kamalame Cay, a 96-acre private island resort off Andros, the Bahamas’ largest island. Blissful days include a lobster picnic on a secluded stretch of beach reached via golf cart (each room comes with one), napping on a beachside hammock, kayaking along the shore and indulging in a hot-stone massage in the fabulous over-the-water bungalow spa. Staff can arrange sunset cocktail cruises and shing and diving excursions to the more inhabited Andros.
Where to Eat: Meals are served in the island’s Great House and include conch salad and seared ahi tuna for lunch and pork belly with coconut rice and stone crab fettuccine for dinner. The impressive wine list features bottles from Burgundy, Bordeaux and Sonoma. For a more casual meal, there’s nightly barbecue served at the thatched-roof Tiki Bar.
Where to Stay: Kamalame Cay boasts 19 rooms, cottages and suites. A romantic option is the one-bedroom Cottage Suite, with tiled oors and French doors that lead to wraparound balconies, perfect for sunset watching (room rates start at $275 a night).
