Pretty sweet digs. But the least you'd expect when the tariff is $3,000 per day. Per person.
Every now and then, being a travel writer on assignment has its perks.
There are only 11 villas on the entire island -- maximum of 44 guests with about 150 staff to look after them. Meaning, there is plenty of pampering.
One morning, my wife and I set out on a two-hour hike with the island's naturalist. It was a fairly grueling leg-stretcher, the weather quite hot. When we returned to the villa, the bath was already drawn and waiting for us, with orchids floating atop the bubbles, a bottle of champagne chilling in an ice bucket, a box of truffles nearby.
Yeah, a guy could get used to the royal treatment.
