Jade Mountain (St. Lucia)
The view of St. Lucia’s dramatic twin Pitons is so striking from this part of the island that architect Nick Troubetzko designed suites with one wall completely open to the views while still allowing for complete privacy. Each techno-free “sanctuary” room boasts its own sprawling infinity pool, a perfect place to take in the infinite beauty of the bay. Rooms average $1,600 a night, without meals.
Located approximately five miles from the famed Angkor Wat, Amansara is sleek, stylish and superbly private. Formerly the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk, the grounds were originally laid out in 1962 and designed to embrace both modern design and the rich artistic legacy of Cambodia. This tranquil oasis is surrounded by beautiful gardens and includes a curved slate swimming pool. The 24 suites are decorated in a classic Indochinese palette of cool gray, pristine white, dark timber and ivory, and all include a private courtyard and soothing water features; 12 suites are equipped with private swimming pools.

On the 2007 Zagat Survey list of the world’s best hotels, Amansara was ranked number two for service.
