Beach Villa, Denis Private Island

Beach Accommodation

An overwater bungalow where you can drift off to sleep lulled by the gentle shush of waves against the shore. A sprawling villa with a view of the sun sinking into the distant blue sea. A luxe resort on a private island, far from crowds. No matter what sort of beach stay you’re looking for, our curated list of hand-chosen villas, cabins, bungalows and resorts will have options to match.

Our specialists have scoured the globe to find a mix of hotels and resorts where you can get some much-needed relaxation among privacy and seclusion. You might choose to unwind in a detached villa with an outdoor shower, stay at a rustic eco-cabin on a coastal nature preserve or enjoy some barefoot luxury at a stilted thatched cottage nestled in the rainforest, just a short stroll from a private beach.
