It's easy to see why international celebrities are so protective of Glover's Reef, 36 miles off the coast of Dangriga, Belize: The Caribbean paradise that's surrounded by a slew of privately owned islands sets the standard for marine-life conservation and those looking to get away in secret seclusion. Enter the Isla Marisol Resort, a five-star 2012 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence-award winner, and your chance to vacation like the stars.

"Glover's Reef Atoll was named after 17th century pirate John Glover, who used the remote islands as a base for raids against treasure-laden Spanish galleons heading to and from the Bay Islands of Honduras," says Lonely Planet. "Blue waters and the chance of seeing dolphins, mantas and whale sharks keep adventurous divers coming back for more."

Transfer to the island by boat with scenery seemingly preening for your point-and-shoot. Your air-conditioned cabana sports a porch hammock along with a private bathroom and daily housekeeping. Inclusive of all meals including lunch and breakfast buffets that boast the best of Belize cuisine, the resort allows you to lap up all the food and beverages you want while azure Caribbean waters lap at your feet.

Comb the white-sand beaches or explore the island on a guided scuba, snorkel, or kayaking tour. Akona 3mm shorty wetsuits are available at the island dive shop, and Isla Marisol keeps a PADI-Enriched Air instructor on site to certify you in Nitrox use, so you can embark on longer, deeper dives where whale shark sightings are almost as common as the Caribbean coral.

For dinner, plate the catch of the day or enjoy an evening meal of conch, lobster, chicken, or pork with fresh fruits and vegetables from Usher family farms and gardens around the country. When it's sunset time, let your legs dangle from the peer and fill your glass with Belizean beer while parrot fish parade below.

  • "After a good night's sleep in an air-conditioned cabaña, and a breakfast of mango and johnnycake, you can dive "The Pinnacles," where coral heads rise 40 feet from the ocean floor."
