Exclusive Hideaways: Solitary Refinement

<< Back to Robb Report, March 2004

    In our myriad journeys at home and abroad, we are at times apt to sacrifice prestige for privacy, grandeur for comfort, over-the-top indulgence for elegant restraint. The hideaway ideal exists to satiate this craving for solitude and simplicity, yet our criteria for this nonpareil vary as divergently as our tastes in automobiles or fine art.

     

     

    For some, a remote tropical resort sets the hideaway standard; for others, it is a little-known lodge situated close to home. In the following pages, we reveal 10 of our favorite locales—from private-island bungalows to royal safari tent camps—for satisfying the wanderlust of all in search of seclusion.
