1. Treeline Urban Resort, Siem Reap, Cambodia
This 48-room riverside city resort takes its inspiration from “the interplay of nature and civilisation” embodied by the nearby Angkor Wat. That would explain why it’s possible to sit at the bay window of your sleek, stone- and wood-accented room, surrounded by stone’s throw from the restaurant and nightlife scenes. You can also soak in the infinity pool under a leafy canopy, survey the hotel’s growing art collection and enjoy a traditional Southeast Asian spa treatment at Suri Spa.
2. The Pushang, Xiamen, China
Though located in the bustling Huli District, this newly-opened hotel nevertheless offers stunning views of the marina and serene Wuyuan Bay. Take a break from the heat of southern China in the 56m outdoor pool, surrounded by sofa beds and umbrellas, and don’t miss the updated Chinese bath house experience at UR Spa, offering traditionally inspired therapies.
3. Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island, Cebu, Philippines
With a private beach dotted with white loungers, this waterfront city resort is a respite from downtown Cebu. Start your day with a snorkelling or watersports adventure arranged by the hotel, or dive into the free-form swimming pool. After a quick nap in your suite, head to their Ibiza Beach Club for tapas, grilled dishes and drinks before hitting the dance floor – there are resident DJs, themed shows and even live bands.
