Luxury at the Fowl Cay resort
 

The luxe Fowl Cay Resort in the Bahamas has a beach-y, laid-back feel - it's all about the sun and the sand here, not the scene. Crowded beaches are unheard of on this private island resort, where a maximum of 28 guests at a time have free range of 50 acres and three beaches; only six villas, ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, comprise Fowl Cay's accommodations. Each villa includes its own fully stocked kitchen, spacious living room with massive flat-screen TV and DIRECTV, and multiple private terraces and decks.

While the villas are clean and feature authentic island decor, quality varies from villa to villa. But personal boats for daily excursions, on-call service and a host of all-inclusive activities such as free use of kayaks and snorkel equipment make Fowl Cay a standout gem in the Exumas. Plus, guests love congregating at the Hill House, located on the highest point of the island with stunning views of the sunset. Hill House hosts cocktail hour starting at 6:30 every night in the pub, and many guests eat dinner on the veranda.

Fowl Cay is a private retreat located among the Exumas Islands, a Bahamian chain at the apex of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Neighboring islands play host to a smattering of celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Faith Hill, and Nicholas Cage, all of whom own vacation homes on privately owned cays.

Accessible by small charter plane via Fort Lauderdale or Nassau, the islands are known for marine life-rich coral reefs, underwater caves, and exceptional yachting. Flights from Fort Lauderdale on Watermakers Air are around 90 minutes, and Nassau flights aboard Golden Wings Charter are approximately 40 minutes. Boat transfers to and from the airstrip are included in resort rates.
