Sandcastle, Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands (not super deluxe, but very gorgeous and completely inaccessible).
BVIs are sensational! Although the best way to see them is by yacht, we had a family holiday a few years back doing this and it allows you to see all the other parts of the islands. The sailing is very easy, although Anegada can prove too much for the novices! Fortunately my Dad sailed otherwise you can hire a crew. The key thing is to make sure you get the biggest yacht you can afford. A 38ft for four people would be a little cosy, we got a 54' and it was very comfortable. A mini bonus is that you get to land at SXM
on the Liat hopper round from ANU
although when we did it we left late and landed in the dark!
JvD though....wow.That place is incredible! Take a visit to the Soggy Dollar Bar where you should swim ashore buy yourself a cocktail and then they hang your money out to dry! The other really lovely place was Sandy Spit on the east side of JvD. A small island made of not much more than sand surrounded by deep crystal clear water.
My suggestion is to head for the FS
on Nevis, very quiet and doesn't attract all the celebrities or have bling status of the Sandy Lane. Also it appears the Chavibbean hasn't spread up much to the Leewards.
If you are feeling flush you could always hire out Necker Island!
