Alila Villas Soori. Bali, Indonesia

"The Ocean Pool villas here beat the Beach Pool villas because their elevated setting gives you a more jaw-dropping view of the sea. Design is sleekly modern and embraces the outdoors. The volcanic, black-sand beach is pristine and empty—very romantic. Interiors are sleek and contemporary, decorated with natural materials and a muted color scheme." Banjar Dukuh, Desa Kelating, Kerambitan, Tabanan; +62 36 1894 6388;

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. Nha Trang, Vietnam

"The blissful Water villas are set right on the edge of the ocean, overlooking the crescent bay's coral reef. Perfectly positioned for days spent sunbathing or snorkeling, these villas also have a private deck and plunge pool, and are accessed by a private hillside staircase." Ninh Van Bay Ninh Hoa, Nha Trang; +84 5 8372 8222;

Cocoa Island by COMO. Maldives

"Plucked from dreams of desert-island dwelling, crystal-blue waters and swaying palms, these villas resemble Keralan boathouses—albeit ones graced with teak flooring and white-on-white interiors. They also have direct lagoon access, so you can take advantage of the world-class diving opportunities for unrivaled liquid thrills." Makunufushi South Malé Atoll; +96 0664 1818;

Cocoa Island by COMO


The Upper House. Hong Kong

"A style-high haven in the heavens, The Upper House Penthouse lets you alternate between admiring what's outside—the city skyline and Victoria Harbour—and what's inside: freestanding limestone bath, tactile art and sculptures, and a finger-tingling collection of cultural books, technology and treats." Pacific Place, 88, Queensway, Admiralty; +852 2918 1838;

The Upper House


Song Saa Resort & Spa. Koh Rong Islands, Cambodia

"Song Saa Private Island is an eco-luxe escape spread over a pair of pristine isles. These rain forest rooms feature magnificent ocean views, best enjoyed from the private pool. Choose between east-facing sunrise villas or west-facing sunset villas (both guarantee good Instagrams). Being green-minded has never been so glamorous." Krong Preah Sihanouk; +85 52 3686 0360;
