Emerald Cay, Turks & Caicos
Stuff rich people love includes private islands and the cache this affords them among their colleagues. This is typically not because they are reclusive, although Howard Hughes comes to mind, it is their disdain for the classes beneath them that fuels a desire for opulent solitude. The exclusivity of a private island provides a reprieve from the riff raff that they tolerate on a day-to-day basis; this naturally does not include the maids, cooks, drivers or concierge services.
Private islands separate the rich from commoners, locals and tourists at their preferred Caribbean destination. Nothing dampens a life of luxury and 24 hour a day pampering than having to step over woebegone partiers that still excrete rum from the prior evening at the Aura nightclub.
If you have the means to partake in the luxury of a private island, you can enjoy a 30,000 sq. ft. mansion which boasts 10 elegant bedrooms, 2 guest quarters, 40 foot high living room ceiling, 3 floor library, home theatre, wine cellar, infinity edge pools, turtle pool bar and first class marina. Should you require a trip to the mainland…use the private swing bridge.
