Best Resort: Nikoi Island

If you're thinking that the trip to Nikoi Island -- a two-plus hour journey from Singapore -- is a bit of a hike, you might want to think again. The idilic private island contains just 15 beach houses, made from driftwood with grass roofs; a solar-powered hot water system; and tv- (and air conditioning-)free rooms with glass water bottles.

The resort also makes its local environment a priority, cleaning up the beaches on a daily basis, watching out for sea turtle nests and nearby reefs, and the owners' started The Island Foundation to help the nearby communities with health and education initiatives.
