“SE­CRET WA­TER IS­LAND” is the di­rect trans­la­tion of the name of this all-villa re­sort. Among the mys­ter­ies you’re go­ing to want to get to the heart of here are the Ba­li­nese ar­ti­san–crafted bam­boo bar that in­cludes no man-made ma­te­ri­als, and the 200-me­ter pool that tra­verses the en­tire is­land and links up to the won­drous Co­ralar­ium, a semi-sub­merged hy­brid of art and na­ture seam­lessly con­nect­ing the sky­line, tide­line and seabed. Walk-swim-gawk your way through this refuge for both marine life and those in­tent on view­ing them. It’s sure to in­spire you to take a dol­phin cruise, plant a tree, or cre­ate your own art—all of which are, nat­u­rally, op­tions. fair­mont.com; vil­las from US$1,230 in­clud­ing taxes.
