Luxury is easy to find in Thailand and the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort is no exception. Surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants, this jungle-like setting is your perfect away-from-it-all hideaway. And to top it off, the hotel offers swim-up rooms so guests can take advantage of their very own river-style pool.
Another Sensatori hotel to make the list is the Sensatori Jamaica, but is there any wonder with its choice of stylish swim-up suites? If we had to choose though, we would go for the swim-up deluxe double which comes with a sea view, a terrace and best of all, its very own king-size day bed perfect for that added piece of indulgence.
