Each month, our art director and photo editor painstakingly select a final photo to feature at the end of Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report. We would like to share this photo from last month's issue with you as we embark on a journey to a new destination in our next issue.
"A 45-minute flight north of the capital, Port Vila, sheltered by the islands of Espiritu Santo, Aore and Malo, lies Ratua Private Island, one of the most remarkable properties in the South Pacific. Guests stay in one of 13 striking Indonesian wood farmhouses, estimated to be around 200 years old, which were painstakingly restored by artisans on Bali before they were disassembled and moved to Ratua Island."
"Gentle breezes supplemented by a ceiling fan kept us cool at night... and we left our villa’s doors wide open except when we slept, an act that inspired an unexpected sense of freedom."
