Marina Bay Sands Hotel - Singapore

B&B Antico Monastero, Anacapri, Italy – An escape in a majestic setting, rising out of the sea, separated from the rest of Capri, B&B Antico Monastero is housed in a monk’s old cell. The former monastery is a maze of corridors and stairs leading to pretty courtyards. The terrace, overlooking the Bay of Naples is carved out of the castle walls. This is a historically rich B&B, a quiet and peaceful place where you go for spectacular views in an unusual setting.

La Residence Phou Vao, Luang Prabang, Laos -Luang Prabang is a World Heritage site for its temples and preservation. Topping Phou Vao Hill, this remote hotel with unusual accommodation is elegant and serene, boasting a view across the Mekong valley to the sacred mountain. The infinity pool overlooks the natural green valley and its temples, and each room also has wonderful views. This is an Orient Express hotel on the luxurious train’s Marvels of Asia itinerary from Bangkok. Take the hotel boat for discovering locations on the Mekong River including the Buddha caves or a jungle trek up the Nam Khan for an unforgettable experience.

Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur, India – In the height of luxury, on Lake Pichola, an atmosphere of royal palaces surrounds you. Rooms with marble bathrooms, semi-private pools and suites with their own private pools await you.
