Tropical vibes

Located in the area of Samasta Lifestyle Village, the newly opened Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran is an exciting new addition to Bali’s hospitality scene. As the first location of the Swiss brand’s expansion to Indonesia, the resort boasts 297 rooms and suites, a free-form swimming pool, and Balinese-inspired design and décor. Dining options are also abound with Anarasa, Above Eleven Bali, Katha Lobby Lounge & Library, and Mövenpick Café. You can also venture to one of the private cabanas at the JeJaLa Pool Deck to take in all the relaxing vibes.



Riverside bliss

The luxury hospitality brand Hoshino Resorts has finally opened its first property outside Japan, HOSHINOYA Bali, which overlooks the Pakerisan river among the lush green hills of Ubud. The resort offers three types of villas, whose architecture and design reflect the traditional Balinese culture. Each villa features a grass-roof gazebo and is connected with the semi-private canal pool area, allowing you to descend directly from the villa’s terrace. How blissful is that?



Urban landmark

JW Marriott just opened its first hotel location in Singapore with JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. Situated near the Marina Bay, the 634-room luxury establishment features interiors designed by Philippe Starck and architecture by Foster and Partners, complemented with a wide array of works by internationally acclaimed artists. With wellness offerings like Spa by JW and an outdoor infinity pool, the property offers a respite in the middle of this concrete jungle.



Idyllic escape

With its contemporary design and family-friendly facilities, Kandima Maldives caters to guests of all ages. Situated on an island in the Dhaalu atoll, the resort offers 274 studios and villas – the Aqua Villas are designed over-water with a private deck so you can enjoy the serene views of the Indian Ocean, while the Family Sky Studio offers six interconnecting studios with a separate living room. Whether you go to Maldives for a honeymoon or a big family trip, Kandima is a good choice.


Hidden pearl

Phu Quoc Island is a hidden paradise off the southern coast of Vietnam that dazzles with its clear blue waters and lush greenery. Now with JW Marriot opening its Emerald Bay Resort & Spa there, you can experience all the island can offer – cultural events, artisanal shopping – alongside the best of modern hospitality. Featuring 243 rooms, suites, and villas, the resort boasts three restaurants and bars, where talented chefs prepare authentic dishes from fresh local produce. Then relax at the resort’s private beachfront or Spa by JW to make yours a vacation to remember.



Modern tradition

The Hyatt Regency recently made its debut in Southern China’s Fujian Province with Hyatt Regency Fuzhou Cangshan. Located near Wulong River and the majestic Qi Mountains, the property merges traditional Chinese culture with modern conveniences in its 226 well-appointed rooms and suites. Catering to both business and leisure travellers, the hotel also features four restaurants offering everything from authentic Fujian cuisine to fine European fare.



Luxe retreat

Perth probably doesn’t instantly come to mind when you think about Australia, but the recent opening of Crown Towers — which has been dubbed as a six-star luxury hotel — might make you reconsider. With 500 rooms and villas, the property is already the largest hotel in the city and offers expansive lagoon-style swimming pools, poolside bar and dining, the Crown Spa, as well as the Crystal Club lounge, where you can revel in the beautiful views across Perth’s Swan River.
