Daydreaming about holidays again? We're here to help. We've rounded up the top 5 places to stay in Asia and the Indian Ocean to inspire your next luxury getaway. These water-facing hotels are the creme de la creme. We’re talking rooftop pools overlooking happening metropolises, and fancy resorts surrounded by national parks and rugged waves. These top-notch hotels come equipped with rooftop pools, plunge pools in high-end spas, and the welcoming sound of running water from fountains in the entranceway. Get ready to dive right in.

 

1. Harbour Grand Hotel Kowloon – Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Kowloon Peninsula is comprised of 261 islands. Harbour Grand Kowloon sits on the Asian mainland, looking out over Hong Kong Island – the second largest. Most of its 555 guestrooms and suites have views of the Kowloon Bay from spacious bay windows – a good match to the colonial style décor. The water theme doesn’t stop at the views; rooms have deep marble baths, gold trimmed fountains feature throughout and a rooftop swimming pool looks onto the Whampoa cityscape.

2. Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa – Bali

Located in Bali’s tranquil south-eastern side. On one side the Indian Ocean, on the other is 3,031m of Mount Agung. It’s decorated in true local style, including hand loomed Balinese fabrics and wood carvings mixed into rain showers and private balconies with garden views. The Chess Beachfront Bar serves up cocktails until midnight every night and there are several onsite restaurants to choose from as well. The spa facility is one of the first on the island and has a lap pool, steam and sauna room, hot and cold plunge pools and a modern fitness centre.

3. Shangri-La's Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa – Sri Lanka

After the South China Sea and Malaccan Strait, the spice route makes a pit stop on Sri Lanka’s southern coast before continuing on to the Mediterranean, passing right by the Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa. Not many hotels offer bedroom views of a waterway as historically important as this. It lies ensconced in four national parks making it a good springboard for exploring Sri Lanka’s wildlife. There’s no dearth of things to do onsite, from archery and volleyball to traditional wood carving and mask making in ‘The Village’ – the nearby artisan space. This waterside hotel is best for couples thanks to its Sunset Pool (adults only).

4. Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa – the Maldives

Surrounded by a lagoon, Vilamendhoo has its own house reef. The Garden rooms are spread throughout the tropical gardens and include access to the Duniye Spa. The villas come with their own private Jacuzzis in a walled-in outdoor area, perfect for watching the stars from the emptiness of the Indian Ocean. There are plenty of scuba diving and snorkelling sites here on the South Ari Toll and six species of shark, Hawksbill and Green turtles and spinner dolphins are all commonly sighted.

5. Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino – the Seychelles

Location is everything for the last hotel on our list. The bay that the resort overlooks – Beau Vallon – is a wide bay that cushions the waves of the Indian Ocean into calm waters – perfect for playing children. Its central location on Mahé makes it perfect for exploring the island. To the rear (east) is capital Victoria and to the south is the Morne Seychelles National Park. If you don’t plan on venturing far, make good use of the onsite tennis and volleyball courts, dive centre and of course the casino – there’s American Roulette Blackjack and Caribbean Poker.
