When you visit Jamaica Inn, you’re getting front-row seats (or well, lounge chairs) to one of Jamaica’s premier private beaches, Ocho Rios. The Traveler’s Choice-winning hotel offers complimentary beach activities like kayaking, sunfish sailing and snorkeling – and back on shore, its doting beach staff is more than happy to hand-deliver rum punch(es!) right to your spot in the sand.
Sure, you can go horseback riding, kayaking or swimming with whales (yes, whales) at the Kingdom of Tonga’s Sandy Beach Resort. But you can also just grab a book from the resort library, stretch out on the pristine sandy beach, and lose yourself to the sights and sounds of this Southern Pacific paradise.
One of four inhabited islands in an archipelago of 99 total, it goes without saying that this Malaysian retreat is remote. Also implied? The stratospheric level of luxury that Four Seasons properties are known for. If you’re feeling fancy, spring for a beach villa – each has a private pool, walk-out-the-door beach access and postcard-perfect sunset views.
No TV, no problem – the Koro Sun Resort and Rainforest Spa is all about passing time naturally in its otherworldly paradise of lush rainforest and crystal-clear sea. With luxe floating bungalows encircling a private azure lagoon (perfect for kayaking) and a swim-up bar (perfect for sundown cocktails), your escape into all things perfectly tropical awaits.
