Melinda Gates is reportedly on Calivigny Island in Grenada.

TMZ reported she rented a $132 000 (R1.8m) a night Caribbean private island for her family to flee from the media following the divorce announcement on Monday.

Calivigny Island boasts on its website that it offers total privacy with freedom to do as much as you please or as little.

With gourmet cuisine, trainers and wellness professionals, we're pretty sure this is the escape Melinda so desperately needed after ending her 27-year marriage.

We breakdown the luxury destination:

Experiences

We not sure what Melinda is getting up to, but Calivigny Island offers many experiences for its guests. They can appreciate the stunning views, wander the tropical gardens or page through a novel while on a hammock. The more adventurous can dabble in some watersport, including jet-skiing, flyboarding, and water skiing. We'd recommend Melinda enjoy sunrise yoga overlooking the bay, outdoor massages or a cooking class (cooking is therapeutic). She could also explore the coral reefs and crystal waters of nearby Carriacou Island.
