The Best Beach Resorts in South East Asia

Sun, sea and sand – as far as day agenda goes, it doesn’t get much better than that. Especially when you sprinkle your sun-soaking day with decorative fruit platters, tropical coconuts and delightfully colourful cocktails. There are numerous 5-star resorts and hotels across South East Asia that can make for the perfect place to stay for a romantic honeymoon, but what’s better than one that has its very own beach?

I have very little regrets in regard to my own wedding but I do wish my honeymoon had been a relaxing tropical getaway rather than a hectic city hopping trip. You need time and space to unwind after such an event and being pampered at some luxury resort with its own private beach would have been ideal.

For those looking to head to the sun for their honeymoon and a beach resort in South East Asia sounds ideal, here’s my list of the best beach resorts that I’ve stayed at.

This is list that will be updated whenever I find some new beach to lounge at with a drink in hand so make sure you keep checking in.

Bawah Island

Bawah, Indonesia

This all-inclusive tropical island resort … do I need to say any more than those opening 6 words? Bawah Island is located smack in the middle of nowhere. You have to take their very own sea plane to get to this secluded spot of paradise where the turquoise waters are crystal clear. This private island resort is the very definition of honeymoon goals.

Full review coming soon.

The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa

Langkawi, Malaysia

A spacious 5-star resort that can encompass both families and honeymooners in perfect harmony. The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa is a beachfront resort on the tropical island of Langkawi with a range of activities that you can choose not to partake in as you lounge on their beach waiting for the sun to romantically set on a peaceful day.

Pangkor Laut Resort

Pankor Laut, Malaysia

There’s only one resort on this tropical island. Pangkor Laut Resort is Malaysia’s iconic holiday getaway and Paverotti described it as the most beautiful place on earth. Their Spa Village is the standard bearer when it comes to pampering treatments that you can enjoy with your newlywed partner and after your couples treatment you can spend the afternoon relaxing on one of the best beaches in Malaysia.

Full review coming soon.

The Legian

Seminyak, Bali

Nearly anyone considering where to go for their honeymoon will have Bali on their list and in the heart of Seminyak is the luxurious 5-star hotel, The Legian. Their infinity pool stretches out onto their private beach to make it look like it entwines with the ocean. You’ll be torn between where you’ll want to lie out in the sun before indulging in afternoon high tea as you watch the sun set on their private beach.

Full review coming soon.

Do you have any Vietnam recommendations? Stayed in Bawah 8/17 and agree it’s a great find. In Vietnam for 2 more weeks.

No Vietnam recommendations yet, I'm afraid. We haven't been but will be there next month!
