As if the half-square-mile horseshoe-shaped island of Matangi isn't hidden enough, Fiji's only treehouse accommodations put the privacy literally over the top. Nestled in the foliage, these three split-level bures transport guests into the jungle. They and the other 10 bures all have beach views, of course. For an even more private beach experience, take a picnic lunch and snorkel gear over to Horseshoe Bay (and check it off Patricia Schultz's official 1,000 Places to See Before You Die list). If you do crave more human interaction, take a scenic boat ride west to join the excited divers in the incredible Somosomo Strait at the famous Great White Wall dive site. You'll have to climb down from your treehouse, though. See photos.
