Dare we say private island resorts are becoming a trend in luxury travel? After the new Four Seasons in the Maldives, the latest to cross our radar is Bawah Private Island, which will open in 2017 in Indonesia’s Anambas Archipelago, 150 nautical miles northeast of Singapore.

Accessible by ferry and private seaplane, Bawah will only be open to 70 guests at one time. At their disposal: a whopping 740 acres, 13 beaches, and three lagoons ringed by coral reefs. Accommodations will include 35 Safari Tented Villas made with sustainable materials (like recycled teak and bamboo), and powered by renewable energy micro-grids. Here’s the villa breakdown: three Garden Villas, 21 Beach Villas overlooking the lagoons, and 11 Water Villas.

The official website stresses the philosophy of environmental and conservation policies: “Bawah Island is a project of love to integrate people with nature and will set the benchmark for future destinations around the region.”
