It depends on your outlook.

How would you like to visit an island that offers the following, at no cost to you?

All rooms offer 360° views of the surrounding bay.
Unrivaled security system to prevent unwanted visitors.
World renown retreat of the rich and famous.
Catering to a very selective clientele.
All rooms come with their own bars.
All drinks served on the rocks.
