KOH SAMUI

koh-samui

The east coast of Thailand island beauty Koh Samui has been in the tourist game for many years but it has continued to evolve and adapt to the requirements of the most discerning travelers. Upon arriving in Koh Samui you instantly relax as you arrive at the resort like airport, and from there is it a short drive to some of the best villas on the island. The private villa scene is on par with Phuket and some would argue the best in Thailand, as many private developers have imagined and created beach and cliffside side properties that ooze luxury and sometimes border on Royalty.

Koh Samui is a popular tourist destination but don’t let this fool you, as the long winding roads of the second largest island in Thailand will amaze you with its untouched and secluded feel. With a number of top restaurants, world class beach clubs and golf courses, there is little to want for on this precious island. You will notice that the beaches of Koh Samui are in pristine condition and are often used as a benchmark for up and coming smaller islands.

With flights on the hour from Bangkok and a number of international connections this island paradise is easily accessible and ready to be enjoyed.

NHA TRANG

nha-trang-destination

Known to the Vietnamese as the beach capital of Vietnam, Nha Trang beach is a 6km perfect white sand arc, ideal for those long sunset walks. The bay itself is circled by mountains and looks out across the turquoise sea, where tropical islands on the horizon are in abundance. The weather is good all year round with only the months of October to December experiencing some rain but not like the monsoonal rains that the rest of Indochina experiences.

A true resort city at heart, it has everything that can be expected such as restaurants, bars and golf courses. In the past 10 years though, the 5 star hotel chains have started building and even more recently international developers have invested in private villas that front onto untouched beaches and provide the best levels of privacy we have seen throughout Indochina and South East Asia.

Nha Trang is just 30 kilometers to the nearest airport, Cam Ranh (CXR), which is only an hour flight from Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang and just under 2 hours from Hanoi.

BALI

bali-destination

Back in the 70’s and 80’s the island of the gods was a surfer’s paradise, with wave chasers searching for that elusive wave. When Kuta beach, Uluwatu and Dreamland were found, they just happened to never leave and the story of Bali began. Through the late 80’s and 90’s many 5 star hotel and resort chains invested heavily across the areas of Kuta, Legian, Sanur and Nusa Dua as Australian travelers increased year on year, finding their own private Oceania oasis. Then in the past 15 years some of the most awarded private villas in the world have been built in idyllic beach front, cliff side and rice terrace locations. Now people travel from across the globe for extended holidays to experience that special Bali feeling that cannot be described, you just have to feel it.

Located an hour flight from Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, the island is situated between Lombok and Java. With a majority Hindu population and an amazing emphasis on local art, culture, music, some impressive temples and the famous Balinese smile, it is hard to not fall in love with this wonder of the world.

Bali also boasts some of the best golf courses in Asia, yoga retreats reminiscent of the movie Eat Pray Love, and spas as good as Thailand. Whilst having no shortage of idyllic landscapes and picturesque sunsets.
