R>How does it feel to live like an A-list celebrity?

Booked into the 'hyper luxurious' Cayo Espanto, a five-star private island paradise in Belize, we were about to find out.

The uber-private resort, with a staff-to-guest ratio of two-to-one, is a celeb favourite, with Tiger Woods, Robert De Niro, Leonardo Di Caprio, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt among the guests who have stayed there.

In fact, it has proven so popular with A-list stars that a stay on the island was included in the 2011 Academy Awards goodie bag handed out to all nominees.

Prior to arrival, guests are given a detailed survey to fill out where you are asked to state your favourite food, snack, cocktail, whether you prefer to be lavished with attention or left alone - hell, even what time you like your coffee served in the morning.

We were coming to Cayo Espanto from the bohemian island of San Pedro, three miles away, the gateway to the crown jewel of Belize - the second largest barrier reef in the world.

Cayo Espanto only has seven 'rooms' and each is hidden within palm trees. All come with an infinity edge plunge pool, a private dock, Turkish bath robes, Alfresco showers, an outdoor hammock and the most extraordinary king-size bed with wondrous Egyptian cotton sheets. My girlfriend got into the bed at 9pm and despite not being the least bit tired struggled to get out again, happily cocooned in the luxurious sheets.
