Keemala

An architecturally stunning retreat in the evergreen rainforests of Phuket, Keemala combines the style of ancient Thai tribe dwellings with modern, whimsical design, immersing guests in serenity and wellbeing.

Built in harmony with the local culture, history, and nature, the resort offers accommodation in four types of units, all ingeniously planned and complete with private terraces and dramatic indoor/outdoor bathrooms. Perhaps the most spectacular are the We-ha (Sky) Clan-inspired Tree Pool Houses, which come complete with suspended furniture and cocoon like beds, or the opulent Bird’s Nest Villas, with their generous glass walls overlooking the mountains and the Andaman Sea.

Set among trees and waterfalls, the spa’s 8 treatment pavilions offer everything from healing Thai therapies to rejuvenating massages. Dining at the resort is an equally holistic experience, focusing on Healthy Living Cuisine.

Aman Tokyo Elevates The Term ‘Urban Retreat’

Aman Resorts has seriously elevated the term “urban retreat” with its latest property, Aman Tokyo. Best known for their ultra luxe hideaways in the most breathtaking and isolated parts of the world, Aman has built a staunch following of wealthy vacationers in search of pure luxury, indulgence and privacy. So it’s no surprise that these self-proclaimed “Aman Junkies” have welcomed the chance to enjoy the same height of luxury and seclusion in the middle of bustling Tokyo.

In a city bursting with some of the highest quality 5-star hotels in the world, Aman has taken on a challenging task of standing out from the crowd. But with a strong focus on urban sumptuousness and serenity, the hotel manages to go beyond hotel star ratings to play in its own incredibly luxurious pool.

Made in the Shades at Fiji’s Ultra-Luxurious Vatuvara Resort

Guests can snorkel in the colored coral reef or go after marlin, tuna and wahoo in the resort’s 36-foot trawler. You can also play a few holes of golf on the island’s small course, get a Fijian massage or laze in the hammocks near the beaches or by Jim’s Bar & Grill, one of the two bures (or huts) used for meals if you don’t dine on your own deck.
