Villa Zest Lime Samui
Ko Samui serves up an open living space to die for which makes its 28 metre infinity pool its true hero piece. There's outdoor sun terraces which overlook the National Marine Park and Five Islands. Inside, you'll be spoilt by the comfort of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms with a fully equipped gym. Not a bad thing to kick off Summer all year round.
The Balian Beach House
If Bali had a luxurious secret, this west coast beach house would be it. It's nestled between volcanic cliffs and finished with the unique and natural look of black sand and crashing waves of the beach at your doorstep. If you get bored of that, retreat back to the confines of the palm trees in your own pool and luxury gazebo.
180° Private Pool Villa
Elevated amongst the tropical hills of Bali is this picturesque retreat that makes the most of the pristine and untouched parts of the island. Two bedrooms and three bathrooms comfortably fit up to eight guests. When nap time's over, head out onto the deck to enjoy stunning views of the lush greenery and sunset. An infinity pool completes the experience in style. This is Bali done right.
Setting the standard in Boracay is no easy feat but this particular penthouse in the Philippines certainly gives it a good run for its money. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms sit over 2,700 sq ft of space. This means you'll have ample opportunity to impress your guests and kick back to a cocktail on the roof with panoramic views of the beach.

For the avid traveller with a conscience, the Magical Coffee Farm & Bio Plantation located in Hawaii is a truly unique stay. Perched amongst the tropical landscape is a working coffee farm which is also home to tropical plants and wildlife. Don't be too phased with the one bedroom space as you probably won't need it. There's an infinity edged hot tub which looks over downtown Kona and Ocean.
