You’d be forgiven for thinking you weren’t on a desert island at all, with champagne on tap and spa therapists at your beck and call. And you certainly won’t run the risk of looking like a castaway after you’ve spent a couple of hours using your complementary Molton Brown products in your 500 square-foot master bath. Rania isn’t lacking in entertainment either: After feasting on seafood personally prepared by your private chef, you can arrange for your very own cultural show, which can include anything from the lively and traditional Bodu Beru (big drum) dancing, to the soothing sounds of a laid-back Maldivian band. Plus, as a world-renowned dive destination there are plenty of opportunities to get back to nature as you swim alongside eagle-rays and grey-reef sharks - accompanied by your private diving instructor, of course.

Sapibenega Island: The Eco-Paradise

Private Islands Inc

Private Islands Inc

Sapibenega is the ultimate private retreat for eco-travellers and culture vultures alike. The straw-thatched cabins and bamboo huts were created by owner Paliwitur Sapibe, a Kuna Indian native to the island. Here, you can immerse yourself in the colourful array of cultural experiences on offer, which include tours to the Kuna village of Playon Chico in Panama and treks to a nearby Kuna burial ground. Channelling the traditional and spiritual origins of the resort, Sapibenega means ‘life’, in particular the essence of life; its beginning and its end. And the resort is submerged in the essence of life, from the rustling leaves of the thick, bushy palms that grow in the region, to the clear waters that swirl round the wooden stilts beneath each cabin. Venturing out of the resort, a native guide will lead you through the island’s thick jungle to the Saibar Maid waterfall, which is rich with the flora and fauna which thrives in the island’s unique eco-system. Or head to Diwar Dumad to hear the call of Sapibenega’s tropical birds, as you reconnect with nature. Nature indeed, is at the heart of the island, and even the toughest eco-warrior would find peace in this Caribbean haven.

So prove Donne wrong and pack your bags... Who said no man’s an island?
