Think of a vacation in Cambodia and Vietnam, when the only thing you need is white sandy beaches and great ocean views, look no further than these luxurious beach villas. Seriously, the Alila Villas Koh Russey and the Six Senses Krabey Island in Cambodia, the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay and the Amanoi in Vietnam are the most luxurious beach villas in the region.
Alila Villas Koh Russey, Cambodia
Located on the unspoiled Koh Russey Islands in the Gulf of Thailand, Alila Villas Koh Russey is about 2,5 miles (4,5 km) off the coast of southern Cambodia. Nestled between the western cape and a 1,3 mile-beautiful beach (2 km) south of the island, assuring magnificent views, exclusive beach access and absolute privacy.
Alila Villas Koh Russey Luxury villas offers a rare opportunity to own one of the most beautiful pieces of paradise that can be imagined. Contemporary design seamlessly melded with the warmth of Khmer hospitality. A beachfront swimming pool, outdoor cinema, yoga studio and organic garden round out the resort’s amenities.
Six Senses Krabey Island, Cambodia
Set to open in spring 2018, but Six Senses Krabey Island is already making splash ahead. Located on the island of Krabey in the south of Cambodia, the resort is comprised of 40 pool villas set around the naturally landscaped 30-acre island, with its highest point being 137 feet (42 meters) above sea level. Each villa features its own private plunge pool, and mini wine cellar.
Focuses on ancient Cambodian healing tradition, this Six Senses must be a stylish island escape, blending natural and paired back materials with indulgent luxuries and technology. Be on the lookout for this one, as it will be one of Cambodia's finest resorts.
The Amanoi, nestled between a national park and a marine reserve on the southeast coast of Vietnam, has a magnificent ocean views and spectacular setting.
The Amanoi features an infinity pool that segues into the sea, a spa that rest by a lotus-blossom-dotted lake, and slate pagodas peek out from a lush green landscape. Residences come with their own pool and private chef, ideal for groups and families. Here you can swim by a tropical fish weaving through rainbow coral forests, and there are plentiful places to lay out your beach towels.
It took me a while to decide which room to take, since the Amanoi’s lofty clifftop perch makes most rooms have a view. I finally picked an Ocean Pool Villa, which ogle both the East Sea and the Cliff Pool. Our Villa is 125-square-metre (1,346-square-foot) has expansive views over Vinh Hy Bay and the East Sea, complete with our own private swimming pool.
Six Senses Con Dao, Vietnam
Con Dao is a group of islands off the southeast coast of Vietnam, the destination is known for their sandy beaches, coral reefs and marine life. The Six Senses Con Dao reflects the essence of a traditional fishing village, offering a complete peace of mind. You will never want to leave your private villa with its own pool on one of the world most beautiful beaches, the resort houses two excellent restaurants, whisper-quiet spa and beautiful sandy beach.
My favorite room here is the Oceanfront Duplex Pool Villa, but honeymooners would love the Ocean View Duplex Pool Villa – which have amazing vistas with privacy, and the villa set on the second row back from the beach, very secluded and romantic.
