Departures lists private villas, from mountain hideaways to waterside retreats, that offer privacy, high-end comforts and five-star amenities perfect for summer getaways.

Among Departures’s recommendations are Waters Edge and Reef House at Oil Nut Bay, a collection of luxury villas tucked away on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda built to blend in with the surrounding pristine topography. Departures calls them standout properties that create a private island sanctuary with indoor/outdoor living spaces, infinity pools looking out over the passing yachts and views of neighboring islands.
