Located hundreds of miles east of Madagascar, the tropical island of Mauritius is one of the most remote vacation destinations for American travelers. Renting this stylish villa should make the grueling travel tolerable though. Posted on an island, connected to the mainland by a narrow stone causeway, L'Ilot is a four-bedroom hideaway that enjoys 360° views of the lagoon and a contemporary style that's rare in the tropics. The villa rents for $1400 per night in high season, which includes daily maid service, prepared breakfast, and, for better or worse, high-speed internet.
