Kanuhura Maldives

Lhaviyani Atoll, Republic of Maldives

With their turquoise lagoons and white sand beaches, the Maldives inspire visions of the ultimate castaway fantasy, but the Spa at Kanuhura takes unplugged pampering a step further. The design, complete with soft lighting, timber flooring and delicate scents that permeate this holistic sanctuary, provides a perfect backdrop for the forty treatments, many using all-natural marine products. The spacious guest rooms, which range from beach villas with their own stretch of sand to dramatic over-water villas with private sun decks and direct access into the warm Indian Ocean, continue the sense of serenity. Unlike many of the Maldives' couple-centered resorts, Kanuhura also caters to families, with extensive children's programs that offer such activities as fish feeding, shell hunting and dolphin watching.

The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud

Bali, Indonesia

The Balinese are revered for their uncanny ability to celebrate beauty and grace in the everyday. Renowned hotelier Adrian Zecha was inspired by this philosophy when he conceptualized The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, outside the village of Ubud. Set amongst more than 12 acres of emerald green rice paddies, the resort radiates tranquility. At the entrance, an arrangement of flower adorned Ganesha sculptures lends a spiritual ambiance, while the property itself features serene lotus ponds, reflecting pools and private villas. The interiors blend harmoniously into the landscapes, and each villa has its own butler to help with everything from unpacking to poolside pampering. Ubud, with its bustling restaurant and art gallery scene, is nearby, though most guests choose to simply stay put.
