Song Saa Private Island, Royal Villa CAMBODIA

A true pioneer of responsible luxury, Song Saa is on two forested private islands linked by a bridge. Almost every villa has been made from reclaimed materials like disused fishing boats and driftwood. The resort even helped to make the surrounding waters a marine conservation zone in its bid to have a net-positive impact on the natural world. Its Royal Villa stands as an example of how luxury and sustainability can go hand-in-hand. The overwater villa is set on its own bridge, giving guests the utmost privacy from their sun terrace and pool. Despite its eco edge, there is no compromise inside — think sunken bathtubs, king-size beds and enough dining space for up to 12 people, should you want to share your slice of off-grid paradise. Best feature Dedicated mojito-making station From $3,590 per night. Contact Donald Wong, general manager, donald@songsaa-privateisland.com, +855 238 867 50, songsaa-privateisland.com

Six Senses Fiji, Five-bedroom Beachfront Pool Residence MALOLO ISLAND, FIJI

Possibly the most luxurious off-grid resort in the Southern Hemisphere, Six Senses Fiji produces 100% of its power through solar panels and Tesla storage batteries.

The ethos of responsible opulence reaches a crescendo inside its top suite, a five- bedroom residence offering the ultimate Fijian lifestyle for up to 10 guests. The living room’s huge bifold doors open to reveal a sprawling sundeck with sweeping views over the Pacific.
