Tropical luxury at its best. Dramatically deployed on hilly grounds in a sea of spruce greenery, this place feels like heaven. No expense has been spared in dousing guests in sassy swank: creative landscaping, natural materials and high-class amenities (including a superb spa and two restaurants). Villas are furnished in muted earth tones with subtle Asian accents. Step inside and let the Zen-like tranquillity envelop you.

One weak point: the artificial beach next to the restaurant is nothing special.
