Forget Necker Island - Caribbean retreats like Richard Branson's are old news, because in 2013 a tropical Island like no other is going to make its way onto the luxury travel market.
Orsos Island is an entirely manmade structure, set to compete with luxury destinations like the Seychelles and the Caribbean.
Unlike traditional idyllic beach getaways, which are tied to one place, Orsos Island can travel all over the globe. That is because the 1,000-metre island floats on water - a cross between a tropical getaway and a high-end yacht.
Travellers will still be able to indulge in the same Island pastimes on Orsos; the structure includes everything from a sun deck lined with tropical palm trees, to BBQs and an 'Island bar'.
Created by Australian based company Orsos Islands, it even boasts a Jacuzzi and it's very own aquarium.
If holidaymakers fancy a swim then they can dip into the Ocean from the deck and if they fancy visiting the mainland, all they need to do is hop onto one of the Islands speed boats.
The Island is also surprisingly economically friendly - it is powered by solar panels and a wind and water heat energy system.
So, what does it cost to stay on a manmade tropical luxury Island? Guests can take their pick of six bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, for a cool £3 million.
However, if you don't have the cash just yet then you still have a bit of time; the first model is still in construction and won't be completed until 2013 at the earliest.
