Prior to opening this two-villa resort, Kelly and Tony Acland asked the billionaires whose private yachts they worked on what they desired in a getaway. Topping the list were privacy, personalized service, and value—all three of which this resort offers to the extreme. Each two-bedroom villa is set on 1 acre and has a staff of seven including a chef who designs guests' all-inclusive menu, including five-course dinners, in consultation with them prior to their arrival.
One villa has a modern feel with marble floors, its hot tub alongside the house and an elevated view. The others are solid South Pacific with hardwood floors, hot tub bure, and beachfront location. Both have super-king beds with 900-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and 24-hour service is an intercom button away. Each comes with a personal boat, van, and staff to match for excursions as reasonably priced as US$150 per person for a two-tank dive and picnic lunch on a smaller island or US$100 for a guided tour of Bouma National Park and a lobster lunch.
