With the latest high-end movement of "stealth wealth" and "quiet luxury" developing, whether illuminated by Sofia Richie's recent Hollywood wedding or the HBO hit series Succession, people are inspired to lead a quieter, toned down version of the high life -- even on vacation.
The new money trend aims for the Ibiza and Amalfi Coast scenes for the ultimate vacation, where the only choice is to go big and go home. Whereas the world of "quiet luxury" has a more refined mindset that prefers immersive vacations in destinations that venture on "if you know then you know" territory, where one may have to do a quick Google search to locate on the map.
Enter the hidden island of Bequia. Known as the Caribbean's best kept secret, this island offers just the right amount of seclusion, where one can go to not be seen, and feel like they're on a private island upon landing.
