This resort made the top of the list for their efforts to encourage their guests to be more sustainable during their stay. They're hoping that some of the practices will stick, and people will live more responsibly. The awareness, the overwater villas sitting atop azul waters, and a personal guest experience host make for a virtually guaranteed perfect stay.
I can't get enough of overwater villas, so here's some more! With a spa, gym, water sports, diving, and a multitude of dining options, you're guaranteed to get the rest and relaxation you're after. Kandolhu is a small island just 25 minutes by seaplane from Male' in North Ari Atoll. Not to mention, each villa comes with its own GoPro that you can borrow during your stay. Just make sure to get your photos/videos onto your computer before you leave!
Four Seasons is known worldwide for the luxury hospitality they offer. The beauty of the Four Seasons in Bali is that they offer tour guides who can take you to all of the important cultural destinations you'd like to visit. They advertise that their guides can take you "off the beaten path" and show you some hidden gems throughout Bali. The Four Seasons has pools, a gym, a spa, wellness activities like chakra cleansing, a cooking school, a sacred nap area -- need I say more?
4. Viceroy Bali
Specializing in romance, this resort is one of the best for newlyweds or couples looking for a little ~bonding~ time. Viceroy Bali is family owned and operated, which isn't very common for 5 star luxury resorts. They offer 5 packages: romance, wedding, cultural, wellness, and gastronomy. In other words, they've got whatever it is you're looking for - including a slew of helicopter tour options.
Four Seasons yet again! The Four Seasons in Bora Bora offers overwater bungalows and boasts being family friendly. You can play tennis or volleyball, hangout on a catamaran, kayak, paddleboard, or even snorkel. And if private charter jet service and couples spa treatments are up your alley, this is your place. It's perfect for couples with kids who want to sneak a few romantic moments with their spouse while having an amazing family vacation.
Trisara is a luxury resort in Phuket, Thailand that offers similar accommodations to other luxury resorts. So what makes it different? You can stay in a residence, or villa, with your own private pool. You don't have to worry about crowds or people being too loud while you're trying to get a tan (that'll actually last for more than 3 days after you get home). While you're here, you can take a cooking class, go on a guided excursion, go on a cruise, or get into some water sports. (This resort is also family friendly!)
