  1. A very nice selection! Those properties are amazing – not at least because of their attention to detail and focus on outstanding quality in everything they are doing.

  2. Four Seasons is a boutique hotel??? How bout Pangkor Laut in Malaysia as an alternative… we went over Christmas and it was amazing

  3. KC said it, Four Seasons is a chain hotel, anyway,talking about Asia’s hotels one cant really say 5 best this and that cause its full of luxurious, beautiful and excellent hotels. Like Bali alone have so many, maybe up to a hundred of beautiful hotels……

  4. Great list – although I have to say that Song Saa private island resort off Cambodia’s south coast tops them all – even Six Senses Con Dao and that is pretty amazing!
