David Copperfield Islands ( 1 )
Musha Cay Island
Musha Cay is widely regarded as the globe’s most exclusive and luxurious private retreat. With its over 150 acres of white sandy beaches, beautiful turquoise water and a unspoiled environment, the island is truly a magical influence over its visitors. Therefore it does not come as a surprise that the island is owned by the greatest magician and illusionist of our times, David Copperfield.
Location: The Island is well placed between three smaller islands, 85 miles southeast of Nassau. A jewel of the Exuma chian, the isle is located in the southern part of Bahamas.
Accommodation: The resort is spread on more than 150 acres of tropical environment and features superb accommodations like 10,000 square foot private Manor house situated on the crest of the hill and equipped with luxurious amenities including indoor and outdoor fireplaces, plasma TV, steam room, front and back porches or a thatched roof Beach house and other luxury guest villas featuring private outdoor Jacuzzis and beaches. The kitchen of the resort is run by the top-flight British chef Chris Cossens. Talking in numbers, the island has got five villas, which collectively feature 12 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms (plus a half-bath). The interior designing has been done keeping in mind the Caribbean backdrop and ranges from tropically exotic to whimsically romantic. Artifacts from David Copperfield’s personal art collection accentuate the interiors.
Features: A variety of outdoor activities are offered which keep the guests quite busy. A fleet of pleasure craft, Black Fin deep-sea fishing boat, wave runners, ski boats and sailboats and a STOL twin engine 9-passenger Islander aircraft are few of the various options that one can choose from to spend their time on this private refuge.
How to get there: Musha has got its 2,200 feet private runway, which makes accessing it quite an easy task.
Rentals: The island resort has played host to celebrities like Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz and John Travolta. Google co-founder Sergey Brin was also married on the same resort island. If you want to have a taste of this unconditional luxury, make sure to dig a little deep in your pockets. Because, not only this island is one of the most opulent, but also quite outrageously expensive. For a group of 12, the island rents out at $38,000 a day. And there is another catch, only one group of guests, numbering up to twenty-four, can rent it at any one time
