The vacation home of Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz, Laucala Island is a lush playground that provides total privacy. The island is located in the Koro Sea in Fiji and has miles of private forest, coconut groves, tumbling waterfalls and multiple pools (including one with a glass edge); a David McLay Kidd-designed golf course; tennis courts; a divine spa; and more activities than you could possibly do in one visit. The Hilltop Estate is set atop the verdant hills, so the panoramic views of the impossibly lush jungle and bright-blue water are out of this world. And all structures are made from local materials, like sago palms, doga timber and magi magi (coconut husk). It is gigantic: There’s a main residence, two large guest residences, a private pool, private airstrip and the services of a nanny, chauffeur and chef, which make this estate feel like a resort within a resort.
