Top 10 Far East Beach Resorts
Luxury Coastal Retreats In The Far East
If you’re looking for an utterly indulgent beach holiday in the Far East, then check out our round-up of the ten best luxury resorts.
The Far East offers some of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the world. Some of these picture-perfect locations are often quiet, due in part to the abundance of accessible coast in the region in addition to sunbathing not being a fashionable activity in certain Far Eastern countries. Others possess an intoxicating vibe full of shopping, dining and nightlife options.
Here is our guide to ten of the best beach resorts that the Far East has to offer.
Kuta Beach, Bali
Once a quiet fishing village, this resort on the west coast of Bali has a real buzz to offer its visitors. The Bali Dynasty Resort provides the perfect retreat for families, whilst the younger crowd may be drawn to the Aussie expat surfing culture in the area.
Gaya Island, Borneo
Gaya Island is an eco-resort located just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Borneo. The fringe-reefed island offers the opportunity to visit endangered green sea turtles and enjoy an indulgent spa experience whilst living in pure luxury.
Lombok Island, Bali
This serene island is one of 27 provinces in the Indonesian archipelago. It boasts a luscious west coast with the semi-active Mount Rinjani as a backdrop. Lombok is located approximately 20 minutes by boat from Bali.
Hua Hin, Thailand
The Aleenta Hua Hin Resort and Spa offers a spacious white beach and boutique luxury accommodation with private pools and steps down to the shores.
