Nestled among 300 hectares of natural landscape with a total of 13 beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters and coral reefs, Pulau Bawah is an island more from the realms of imagination than reality. As of 2017, its 35 eco-friendly villas will give their occupants access to the experience of a lifetime. With jaw-dropping views, unparalleled tranquility, stunning wildlife, and immaculate surroundings, it's one of the most glamorous destinations on the planet.

The island resort will have a strong ecological ethos, including a zero waste policy, with all waste taken off the island or recycled with renewable energy. The resort will employ a specialist farmer to ensure suitable plants are grown to supply the restaurant, and all fishing will be prohibited to protect the wonderful marine life supported by the island's spectacular coral reefs.

CNN once named Bawah one of Asia's most beautiful tropical islands, and with good reason. Its sheer untouched natural beauty is its greatest calling card, but there are plenty of other selling points. The crystal white beaches create a zen that will trump any yoga course you could buy into; its jungles provide the perfect place for more active residents to trek and explore; and the coral reef surrounding Bawah is just begging to be explored by recreational divers.

You don't have to worry about the sort of crowds found in island destinations like the Maldives or the Caribbean because this island only allows a maximum of 70 people at any one time. The peace and tranquility will be palpable. It is, without doubt, the perfect retreat.

The six tiny islands that make up the Bawah Islands, lie 150 nautical miles north-east from Singapore and are part of the Anambas Islands chain in Riau Islands province, Indonesia. To find out more and book your trip of a lifetime, check out the official website here.

Once you dock on this slice of paradise, you'll never ever want to return to reality.
