The eco-friendly architecture oozes soft lines and beautiful designs in keeping with the natural surrounds of its location between scenic lush rice paddy fields and black-sand beaches. Being so remote – it’s a 10-minute drive into town – you’ve no choice but to relax, or take part in organised activities such as horse riding or a facial in Alila’s first-rate spa.

WOW FACTOR: You’ll feel like a celebrity (OK, you’ll be paying like one as well) if you stay in one of Alila’s stunning villas. The vast room opens up to a sunbathing area, which leads to your own infinity pool. So, call up your personal butler, order a cocktail and sip while drifting, with the azure Indian Ocean as a backdrop.

THE ROOMS: Choose between a terrace villa, overlooking paddy fields, or a beach or ocean villa. Wherever you stay you’ll have access to a public infinity pool, outdoor terraces and the beach.

BILL PLEASE: A villa sleeping two will set you back £362pn.
