You do not have to have a last name on a mailbox in Miami's Millionaire's Row to inhabit your own stretch of exclusive sand.

Escape the sweltering East Coast heat at Grove Isle Hotel & Spa, a private-island resort tucked under the shade of lush palms to protect your million-dollar smile.

Drizzle yourself in opulence in a Luxury Bayfront Room made for two for one ($125) three ($375) or five nights ($625). Included in your escape is breakfast each morning for two, all of your resort fees, and a 20% discount on spa services, so you can lift your pinkie with the best of them.

You will be living the life of Forbes magazine cover models while being shuttled around Grove Isle's luxurious 20 acres. Spoil your regular fitness routine at one of 12 tennis courts in the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center. Forget standing in line: the 85-slip marina will have you yacht-loaded and sea-bound in record time.

After a day of affluence on the water, take your sun-drenched skin to The Spa at Grove Isle. Lavish yourself in the Waterfall Watsu Pool — one of only a few on the coast — as you float in the arms of your personal massage therapist. Channel your inner diva as they massage muscles, mobilize joints, and stretch tissues after a long evening of soaking in Miami's vibrant nightlife.

Never question your VIP status at the Gibraltar at the Grove Isle Hotel and Spa. This posh dining experience can be enjoyed anywhere throughout the pristinely private island you have been strutting through-next to the pool, under a palm tree, in the sand or your guest room.

Epicureans delight in a menu chock-full of gourmet dishes like peach-marinated grilled cobia, dry-aged New York strip, and roasted Chilean seabass.

As long as you can wield off autograph requests from island co-inhabitants like Mariah Carey and Oprah (we can dream, right?), this indulgent escape will have you tossing bills and popping bottles. Best of luck getting your feet back on the ground upon departure.
