The idea of being on a private island and vacation is something that is desirable when it comes to being away from the main land and its hustle and bustle. There are several hotels and resorts out there that are located on their own or a shared island that’s disconnected from the land wholly owned by a private individual or corporation. These secluded hotels and resorts can be really expensive to go to.
Fortunately for living points life, there are hotel’s rewards programs out there such as Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott and Radisson that allow you to use reward points to redeem for free nights at those private island hotels and resorts around the globe.
