Whether you’re craving a fancy little weekend getaway or looking for an indulgent layover destination to break up a long-haul trip, these resorts have your luxury-accommodation needs covered.
Soneva Kiri: Stopping over in Bangkok? Why not maximise your time in Thailand with a cheeky trip to the jaw-droppingly picturesque island of Koh Kood? Nestled between untamed jungle and pristine beaches, Soneva Kiri promises a luxurious, family-friendly and inspired-by-nature escape. Head to the resort’s private, palm-fringed North Beach for a cocktail at the Coconut Bar or have your lunch delivered via zipline as you soak up views over the canopy to crystal-clear water lapping at the shore beneath you at Treepod Dining.
Fullerton Singapore: Asia’s ‘city in a garden’ has plenty of dining, entertainment and nature to offer and this iconic, 5-star hotel in Singapore’s art and cultural district puts you within easy access of the finest attractions. The only problem is that between your incredibly elegant room and the hotel’s boho rooftop bar, Lantern, which offers unparalleled views over the bay, you might not be tempted to do too much exploring.
Bawah Reserve: While you’re in Singapore, you simply have to make the private sea plane trip to Bawah Reserve. It’s hard to put into words how magical this archipelago in the Anambas Islands truly is – so you’ll just have to check it out for yourself. Some of the highlights include exploring the resort’s three lagoons and 13 beaches in a glass-bottomed canoe; trekking its six, previously-uninhabited islands; or enjoying world-class spa treatments at the beachfront wellness spa.
Tokoriki Island Resort: The South Pacific is commonly forgotten on layover lists but if you’re heading to LA and want some sunshine on the way, you can’t go past Fiji’s most awarded adults-only, luxury resort, Tokoriki Island Resort. Enjoy tropical sunsets, cocktails by your personal pool or a spot of stargazing from your hammock.
Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa Dubai: An exclusive luxury desert oasis, 45 minutes from Dubai, Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is tucked between lush palm groves, emerald canopies and the iconic sand dunes of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve – an absolute must-do while in the UAE!
