It’s almost the end of the year and you’re planning a short weekend escape from the city. We’ve got you covered. Here is our pick of the new resorts and hotels around the region.


Opening in October, this new beachfront resort at Bali is stunning, to say the least. It’s literally a stone’s throw away from the popular bar-restaurant Potato Head and is right smack in the middle of the pulsating nightlife scene of Seminyak. But you wouldn’t want to leave your suite, not with views like the one below.

Of course, there are the usual amenities – spas, a swimming pool, a couple of restaurants. All you need to return to the city a new man.


While not a resort per se since it’s located in the heart of the city of Chengdu, The Temple House is unlike your typical mass hotel chains. It’s steeped in heritage – the entrance is set in a beautifully restored hundred-year-old Chinese courtyard building built in the Qing Dynasty – and combines modern design with traditional Chinese architecture elements.

The result is an ethereal experience that will make you forget reality, even if only for a brief weekend.


Now this is a members-only villa that comes complete with butlers, drivers and house help. Villa Santisook is one of four exquisite properties in Thailand under the portfolio of The Hideaways Club, an exclusive property investment fund for folks who enjoy travelling around the world. And with experiences like the Villa Santisook, I dare say it’s worth the expense to invest in such a burgeoning fund.

So if you’re a frequent traveller and possess a keen eye for property investment, you should check out The Hideaways Club. Best to do it while sipping on a martini in your private pool at the Villa Santisook.
