7 Exotic Beachfront Hotels In AsiaLike1

It is definitely not easy to break down only 7 of the best beachfront property, so keep on checking here every month for the list that will keep growing. Every month, I will add 7 exotic beachfront hotels across the world. I couldn’t help but naming the exotic beachfront hotels from a sustainable point of view. From Cambodia to Maldives to hidden gem Bawah Island to the wildness in Sumba Island. Which is your favorite?

SONG SA – CAMBODIA

In Cambodia’s untouched Koh Rong Archipelago, two pristine islands lie side by side. They are known locally as Song Saa – Khmer for ‘The Sweethearts’. The Song Saa Private Island is as seductive as the name implies. Think intimate. Think luxurious. But above all think harmony – with all the elements of nature that make this place so special.
While the island feels secluded, it is only 35 to 40 minutes away from Sihanoukville on the resort’s luxurious speedboat.
Song Saa Private Island provides luxury transfers in our fleet of BMW 5 Series from the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. Journey time is approximately 3.5 hours.

Gili Lankanfushi not only encourage guests to practice being sustainable during their stay, but to also bring home these responsible initiatives to practice and to adopt this way of living in their daily lives, to help make this world a beautiful one to live in.

NIHI SUMBA – INDONESIA

Sumba is 400km East of Bali with easy access in a brand new Sky Team Garuda Bombardier jet taking 50 minutes. This is not an escape from everyday life. It is the return to a life well lived. Where rugged luxury meets unregulated freedom. A place to connect with something larger than oneself. A haven for the adventurer, for the wanderer. The endlessly passionate and curious. Arrive with an open heart and leave changed forever. This is vacation with a purpose. A destination with meaning. This is Nihi Sumba.

    What snaps! SE Asia in particular has some amazing, eye-popping beach front views. We flew from NZ to NYC over the past day. Layover in Honolulu. Brilliant! Never seen as clear and turquoise a water as I did while descending yesterday. I look forward to a return trip and to visiting my beloved SE Asia once again.

  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry you once had. 💫
  • Just found this photo, 4 years ago, when I was back in Sri Lanka, it feels like another lifetime, do you ever have that feeling when looking at old photos?

  • There is something you should know... I don’t have everything figured out. Believe me, sometimes, even the people who look like they have their sh*t together... sometimes don’t know what the hell they are doing, but that’s ok because we are not meant to all the time! ♥️
Thank you to @dennisstever for the picture 💫
  • The midnight sun. Where the sun never sets. Endless days... For once, I finally found a place where I had enough hours in the day to do everything I wanted. To take my shots without rushing for the sun to set and keep those color in the skies for more than just seconds and minutes and have endless conversations with friends. This is the sun at midnight beyond the arctic. The sun remains this way till sunrise in the summer from the 20th of May till the 21st of  June and we witnessed the first day of the rise of the midnight sun ♥️ thanks to my wonderful friends @pukkatravels where you can join my next trip in October but this time, we sail in search of the Northern Lights 💫

In October you can also join us as we sail for one night in the arctic and into the fjords to watch the NORTHERN LIGHTS, the rest of our stay will be on land driving into the fjords and set a campfire to see the Auroras!
