Hotel of the week: Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort

Tikehau is distinguished by its pink beaches and azure lagoon.

Tikehau, French Polynesia

“One of the most stunning gems in all of Polynesia” might not be a place you can visit for very long, said Shannon Melnyk in The Dallas Morning News. Tikehau, a coral atoll distinguished by its pink beaches, azure lagoon, and a concentration of fish that Jacques Cousteau claimed to be the highest on the planet, lies so close to sea level that it may be submerged in 10 to 20 years. But a stay today at this unique resort offers the promise of a Robinson Crusoe–esque bungalow, marvelous meals, and “a natural beauty rarely seen.”spmhotels.com; doubles start from $689
