Imagine you and your significant other(s) waking up in Bali, rolling out of bed and immediately getting in the plunge pool right outside of your room. Your butler is there and serves you a three-course floating gourmet meal with sparkling wine.

Sounds great, right? They're offering discounts for extended stays of 14 or 30 days right now (as of May 17, 2020... subject to change at any time).

2. JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa

Vibing in a whirlpool on a deck in Phuket is always where I would rather be. Whether you're looking to make epic memories like taking a Thai cooking class, or whether you'd rather just relax floating around your private pool with your significant other, the JW Marriott Phuket Resort is a top choice (especially because they have 24 hour room service).

3. Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas, Thailand

This hotel is everyone's definition of luxury - ease, comfort, and beauty. If you were looking for a hotel with more than enough Instagram hotspots, look no further. You could spend the day in the spa or take a private yacht out for a day of sun and drinks. Or forget leaving the room and just hangout in the pool right outside your room. So many possibilities.

4. Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand

45 minutes outside of Phuket, Six Senses Yao Noi offers every activity you can think of. Learn how to waterski and wakeboard, take a Muay Thai lesson, visit a Fish and Lobster Farm, go windsurfing or diving, or even take a private yacht out for the day. This hotel is probably one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen and it looks to have a lot of instragrammable spots.

5. Layana Resort and Spa, Ko Lanta, Thailand

If you prefer your vacation to be more about romance and relaxation, Layana is for you. Focus on your wellness, relax in the spa, or grab a nice meal with your significant other. They have a gym and host a yoga class every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so you can stay fit while you're on vacation. If you want to connect deeper, try taking Layana's meditation class.

6. Anantara Hua Hin Resort, Thailand

Anantara always delivers the best in luxury hotels. The Anantara Hua Hin Resort attracts the adventurers. At the resort you can swim in the pools, work out in the gym, play table tennis, play tennis, rent a scooter, take a yoga class, and more. Venture out into the sea for kitesurfing or kayaking, or visit historical sites to get more familiar with the culture. Luxury and relaxation meet exploration and learning here!

7.Bulgari Resort Bali, Uluwatu Indonesia

Staying at the Bulgari Resort in Bali is an experience in and of itself. Here you'll find Pura Luhur Uluwatu - a famous sea temple atop a cliff which guests are brought to so they can see a Kecak Dance with 50 Balinese performers. While you'll have plenty of opportunity to try new things, this resort offers the best in luxury service and relaxation. If you like a balanced vacation, where you can spend most (if not all) of your time at the resort, consider putting the Bulgari Resort Bali on your list for next year.
