The lure of the far-away islands dotted across the shimmering South Pacific is as strong today as it was when Captain Cook returned to Britain in the 18th Century with tales of a bountiful, exotic paradise; yet today's South Pacific is infinitely more indulgent. Luxury resorts make the most of the spellbinding beauty with overwater bungalows, slick ocean-view villas with private pools, and open-air restaurants and spas, all just a stone's throw from the abundant turquoise waters.

All South Pacific islands have their own brand of diversity and tropical splendour. Bora Bora, one of the most celebrated islands, is a honeymoon hotspot that is prized by couples the world over and a haven for families hankering for unhurried activity. And for those who seek privacy the exclusive private island resort of Laucala, blessed with white sand beaches and friendly Fijian hospitality,is a must-see jewel of the South Pacific.

A villa at Laucala Plantation in Fiji Laucala Island, South Pacific

Fiji's picture-perfect Laucala Island is somewhat off-the-radar, and as far as we're concerned it is all the better for it.

The Brando

Densely forested and lapped by the ocean, Tetiaroa bursts with nature - sea turtles, tropical birds and manta rays are regular visitors.

Overwater villas at St Regis Bora Bora Bora Bora, South Pacific

The variety of discreet accommodation means there is something for couples, friends and families; and we adore the Clarins spa, which lies on its own private island.
