With its cliffside, canopy-level perch, modern treehouse design and emphasis on self-sustainability, Suarga Padang Padang is a little like a five-star reinvention of the Swiss Family Robinson home.
Bear with the analogy: the Balinese craftsmanship employs traditional bamboo, limestone and straw in beautiful, contemporary structures, while the place powers itself with solar panels and uses filtered rainwater for day-to-day activity.
Convinced? At just 36 rooms/villas, it’s also very exclusive, with each of the villas afforded the extra luxury of a private pool.
The hotel’s Dugong Restaurant is another reason to take your beach getaway outside Thailand: the Indonesian fusion food is mostly prepared from ingredients sourced within a 50km radius.
Room rates start from $414.
