Visitors to this beach resort are impressed by its 107,000-square-foot pool landscape. Some rooms even have direct access to the turquoise water. The 18 unique above-water villas—with vaulted wooden ceilings and ventilating fans over freestanding beds—give off a strong tropical holiday vibe. The best deep-fried calamari in the city is served in the Beach House beach bar at lunchtime. In the evening, the Asian cuisine in the Mekong restaurant is convincingly authentic.
