PICTURE PERFECT HOTELS THAT WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY! | The saying often goes ‘Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder’, but while some things remain subjective, there are places that will leave us all in awe and wonder. From being surrounded by nature’s picturesque landscapes to boasting elegant views of the city skyline – here we list out some of the most Instagram-worthy hotels and resorts located throughout Southeast Asia. 

The Myst Dong Khoi Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam 

Located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, the irregular façade of the Myst Dong Khoi hotel exudes an element of mystery that is sure to incite your sense of curiosity. A recent addition to the city’s fast growing high-end hotel scene, the Myst Dong Khoi is a modern sanctuary that tells the story of Ho Chi Minh City then and now.

Picture this, stained-glass details, ancient roof tiles, wrought iron beans and exposed industrial parts salvaged from old shipyards, each element is carefully infused into the building’s interior to provide vacationers a glimpse of Ho Chi Minh City’s past charms and rich history.

Fusion Suites Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) – Vietnam 

Another Vietnamese contender in the Instagram-worthy line up is Fusion Suites Saigon. Also located in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Fusion Suites Saigon exudes a Scandinavian style vibe with simplicity and minimalism at its design core.

Flaunting floor-to-ceiling windows with top-notch views overlooking Tao Dan Park, the hotel’s clever use of timber and tiles will leave you feeling zen during your course of stay. Hashtag and picture worthy interiors aside, this chic hotel also has a rooftop restaurant and lounge bar that gives stupendous views of the city, so get that camera ready and snap away!

Keemala Resort, Phuket – Thailand 

Keemala Resort, Phuket is one hotel that has been making its rounds on Instragram and it is obvious why. Nestled amidst luscious greens, Keemala’s quirky pool villas are remarkable architectural anomalies.

Perched high above the Kamala rainforest of Phuket, Keemala Resort is a celebration of four fictitious clans who once walked the land – the earth clan, wanderers, sky peoples and nest clan. Each villa is ingeniously designed to represent and resemble one clan as can be seen through the crowd favourite Bird’s Nest Pool Villa – a nest-like pod suspended amid the forest tree-tops. This picture perfect location will surely be the envy of your friends!

The Strand, Yangon – Myanmar 

Praised as ‘the finest hotel East of the Suez’ by Author John Murray, The Strand is the perfect blend of modern luxury and age-old sophistication. A stay at this hotel transports guests to a bygone colonial era with its authentic period furnishings.

Newly revamped in 2017, the over-100 year old Victorian mansion now has a spanking new 18x8m infinity-edge swimming pool, a poolside terrace well-furnished to occupy 35 loungers and four private pool cabanas. The suites are spacious with beautifully tiled bathrooms and teakwood floors. It is everything you would expect of a luxury hotel and more!

Phum Baitang, Siem Reap – Cambodia 

Tucked just outside the city of Siem Reap in the Khmer countryside, Phum Baitang is the perfect embodiment of an authentic Cambodian experience. Meaning ‘green village', the hotel is enveloped by eight acres of verdant gardens, lemongrass meadows and rice paddies.

Bask in the tranquillity of the countryside from the comfort of any of the 45 villas located on site. Perched on stilts, each villa is designed to reveal and preserve the aged lustre of traditional Khmer wooden houses. Photo opportunities are aplenty at this idyllic property especially with the freshwater infinity pool that overlooks the resort’s paddy fields.

Templation Hotel, Siem Reap – Cambodia 

An oasis at the gates of Angkor – one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia, Templation is a luxury eco-retreat fitted with 33 exclusive suites and villas, most of which boasts its own private pool for an added touch of privacy.

A calm respite from the hustle and bustle of city life, a sense of serenity engulfs you from the moment you step foot into the property. The real picture perfect moment lies in the villa where you can enjoy a floating breakfast tray from the comfort of your private pool – a noteworthy experience that deserves to be immortalised in picture.

It’s all about the gram these days, with travellers often sporting a camera in one hand and a suitcase filled with perfectly curated outfits to match post-card worthy backdrops. If you are raring to boost the likes on your Instagram posts, be sure to check out any one of these hotels and resorts and be the envy of all your friends!
