Finding a Relaxing Resort

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have a dream of spending a week at a luxurious beach resort where we can feel totally removed from the humdrum of modern life for a while. Maybe if I describe our dream, someone will be able to recommend a place?

Here are some things that we would love:

- no clocks, no TV, no need for shoes
- privacy, seclusion (private bungalow)
- good food available at any time of day (since we won't have clocks to make mealtimes)
- swinging in a hammock on our private porch, with a view of the sea
- high quality furnishings and high level of customer service

We are not looking for lots of activities and tours, we just want to have great scenery, sleep when we feel like it, read a lot, eat good food, and go for some walks on the beach. Of course we might go looking for some activities, but I am not worried about having TONS of options in that category.

I have found places like this in the south pacific and the indian ocean, but that is a lot of flying and travel expense when there are tropical islands etc right here in my own hemisphere. Even on this side of the planet, it would be great to not take two jets, one biplane, a ferry and a canoe to get to this place. We don't need to be the only people within 1000 miles.

We don't have 10k to spend on 5 nights, so "luxury" is a term I use broadly. I am assuming that if a place offers private secluded bungalows on the beach, it will be plenty fancy enough. We just don't want to be roughing it in an old shack, have an uncomfortable bed, or worry about the cleanliness of the food.

Bottom line is beautiful tropical scenery and uncompromised peace and relaxation. If you know of a place like this let me know!
