Ariaria Island has been named by British Vogue as a top holiday spot for its privacy amidst pristine surroundings.
For the ultimate house party, the Ariara private island in the Philippines can be taken by a group of up to 18. Exotic, adventurous and with all the trimmings that British couple Charles and Carrie McCulloch were determined to provide having been disappointed by the crowd mentality that invariably takes over at luxury hotel chains, it will house you and your guests along a stunning beach so that you truly feel that you’ve found your corner of the world. Supreme in quality from the water sports to the food and wine, it’s worth every penny of its breath-taking prices. It can cost between £19k and £40k for a week – but fill it with the full house of 18 and it breaks down to £295 per person per night – which for a really special occasion might just be justified.
BEST FOR: The most decadent of group holidays.
Of all 100 destinations that made it on the list like Maldives’ Reethi Rah and New York’s Hotel Americano, Ariara Island landed the number one spot.
Nestled in unspoiled Calamian Islands, which lies north of Palawan, it is 160 miles southwest of Manila and is accessible via air transport then a boat ride.
Ariara is a private island that can cater up to a group of 17. The island’s rates are in US dollars and is only available for exclusive rental to one group/party of guests at a time. It takes pride in its “rule your own island for a week” concept. Guests can stay for a minimum of seven nights costing US$295 per guest per night during low season. In Philippine pesos, it costs more than Php12,000 per person.
