Get­ting to the Ti­amo Re­sort on South An­dros is­land in the Ba­hamas is no small feat. There was the long haul to Mi­ami, then the flight from Mi­ami to Nas­sau, Ba­hamas’ brightly coloured cap­i­tal, then an­other to South An­dros Man­grove Cay air­port where we were greeted by a car, which drove us to a port. Just when we thought we couldn’t travel any fur­ther, a speed­boat showed up. Twenty min­utes later, we fi­nally ar­rived.

Once there, the scene was breath­tak­ing, and as pri­vate as you can get. There’s no other re­sort on South An­dros, which is the ul­ti­mate Caribbean dream of palm trees and white sandy beaches. The prop­erty is small with only a dozen rooms, mostly one-bed­room cab­ins with their own pools.

Din­ner is served in the can­dlelit Great Room: think lo­cal fish, rice and crisp sal­ads, all de­li­cious. But the best thing about the Ti­amo is that they un­der­stand that even in par­adise, it’s good to have some­thing to do. So there are day trips (we ven­tured to Nas­sau, where we feasted on gourmet burg­ers at the One&Only Ocean Club) and count­less water­sports. We tried kayak­ing, snorkelling and pad­dle-board­ing, man­ag­ing to dodge a huge stingray. By home time, we were vir­tu­ally pros — and plan­ning our re­turn. The never-end­ing jour­ney? It was most def­i­nitely worth it. Or­solya Sz­abo (tiamore­sorts.com; one­an­don­lyre­sorts.com)
