Where: Eueiki Island, Tonga.

Cost: Depending on the time of year, prices start at $16,800 per week for the entire island, or you can rent a single "bungalow" for $300 per night.

Guests: Each bungalow accommodates up to two people, for a total of 16 people if renting out the whole island.

Size: 24 acres.

Amenities: Each of the bungalows nestled along the beach has hot and cold running water, a private bathroom with a shower, fans and a covered porch. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in your stay. To make it a true eco-vacation, staff from the resort gives guided reef walks that also serve as food-gathering expeditions. Imagine collecting an octopus, sea urchin or other local delicacy to dine on later in the day. You can also gather fruits like papayas, mangoes and limes.

Unique features: This private island boasts that it's a true eco-resort. Visitors use solar power, collect rain water, eat local food and recycle. The Tongan government acquired the island in 2001, and the owners are the first human inhabitants of the island. Situated in the heart of the South Pacific, this island provides peace and serenity without disturbing the environment.
