White sands, exclusive service and utter tranquillity on a private island in Nicaragua. As you approach Calala Island, you could be forgiven for thinking yourself a true castaway, about to be left in the middle of the Caribbean. But as you sail closer, thatch-roofed villas and a shimmering infinity pool emerge among the palm trees. By the time you’re greeted at the jetty, you’ll be a willing Robinson Crusoe, ready to begin life on this private island retreat.

Tucked away on a private atoll in a little-known corner of the Caribbean, Calala Island is a truly exclusive getaway offering highly bespoke experiences, be it dining or activities. With a discreet and dedicated team of over 25 staff to look after your every wish.

Calala Island accommodates only up to eight adults across only four beachfront suites, ensuring the ultimate privacy and luxury getaway. Its suites designed by celebrated architect Matthew Falkiner are styled after a traditional Caribbean palapa accented with beautiful handcrafted furniture. Dining on the private retreat is deliciously diverse – look forward to a bespoke menu of fresh-off-the-fishing-line seafood and organic, island-grown produce prepared by Michelin-trained executive chef Lorne Emerson, served anytime and anywhere the guest desires.

Spend your days lazing in the hammock or taking hand-in-hand strolls on the beach – after your morning mimosas, naturally. Enjoy a massage in one of the private pavilions beside the sea. Then look forward to a bespoke menu of fresh-off-the-fishing-line seafood and organic, island-grown produce.

Almost everything is included on Calala Island – and the friendly team is on hand to shape your stay exactly as you wish. Set off on a fishing trip to land a Caribbean catch of the day. Go snorkelling or paddle boarding. Then as night falls, sit out under the stars, cocktail in hand. On Calala Island, you’re truly in a world of your own.
