The indulgent resort houses three restaurants that serve up beyond-delectable Asian fare, three inviting infinity pools were you can gaze at stunning ocean views from sun up to sun down, and a spa complex where your new-found relaxation will be taken to a whole new level.
The luxurious contemporary-meets-thousand-year-old-tradition stylings of the 100 secluded villas strategically positioned throughout the property are pure perfection. Hand spun silks swathe a four-poster king size bed set on an elevated platform, a lavish lacquered eggshell bath cosies up to a snug lounge area, and your own private garden has an outdoor rain shower.

Pita Maha Resort & Spa
Nestled neatly amidst lush jungle and overlooking the Campuhan Valley the Pita Maha Resort & Spa is an indulgent escape in the luscious hills of Ubud.
Balinese style villas are peppered throughout the natural setting, an infinity pool provides stunning views over the verdant valley and river below, and the on-site spa is the perfect place for a spot of pampering perfection.
The beautifully appointed and delightfully spacious rooms offer up a relaxed atmosphere with polished floors, high ceilings, lavish canopied beds, and nature-inspired bathrooms.
There are plenty of places around the resort where you can relax and take in the beautiful natural surrounding, but be sure to take time for a sundowner or two at the outdoor restaurant where you can immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the beauty of a sunset in paradise.
Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa
Just off the coast in Borneo, on the picture perfect Gaya Island, lies the luxurious Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa. Weaving their way through tropical jungle are a string of private wooden villas that boast either endless ocean or jungle views. At their interior they are sleek and chic, with polished wood floors, simple furnishings, and gorgeous decor.
At the Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa you can dine with sand between your toes, relax on your private deck, on a sun lounge by your private pool, or enjoy one of the many activities on offer, including jet skiing, kayaking, and snorkelling in the pristine waters of the bay the resort is set on.

With just 15 tents at this luxurious jungle retreat it is the perfect place to splurge on a remote holiday amidst nature.
