13. Bawah Reserve, Indonesia
For travelers looking to get away from it all, a far-flung location and off-the-grid ambiance are major selling points. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Bawah Reserve. Tucked away in the remote splendor of Indonesia’s Anambas Archipelago—and reachable only by seaplane—this private island retreat offers serenity and seclusion.
With untrammeled white-sand beaches, cerulean lagoons, and lush vegetation at every turn, a sojourn at Bawah Reserve really feels like a true escape. Blissful quietude, outdoor adventures (think: kayaking, snorkeling, sailing, and hiking), and rustic-chic digs add to the fantasy of it all. Overwater suites boast canopied King-sized beds, outdoor showers, sundecks, and stairs that lead directly into the glistening shallows. Put your phone on airplane mode because this property and, of course, your spouse deserve your full attention.
