8.1 out of 10

This elegant eco-resort has hotel rooms with private balconies, and sophisticated two- and three-bedroom timber villas that are elevated to limit their environmental impact. There’s a three-night minimum stay in high season. The Seabelle Restaurant is terrific (mains from $18), while the three bars are great fun in summer at sunset, especially the Dingo Bar.

There are boutique shops and daily ranger-guided, eco-accredited tours of the island (adult/child $185/120).
