Asian summers are blazing hot with little rain, which provides the perfect setting for fiery sunsets. Here are five luxury hotels in Asia you will want to check in to this summer for some amazing twilights.
1. The Capella Singapore
Nestled in hectares of greens on Singapore's only resort island – Sentosa – Capella Singapore is a Norman Forster updated colonial relic pointing towards the tropical sunset. With a rum cocktail in hand at its super chill Bob's Bar, evenings are truly intoxicating.
2. The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi, Malaysia
Situated on the fabled island where ancient rainforests meet the Andaman Sea, The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi is the newest luxury resort that promises privacy and pampering within sumptuously decked out villas. The resort’s over-the-sea Horizon Bar is the best spot for unforgettable sunsets.
3. Velaa Private Island, the Maldives
At one of the island nation's most decadent luxury resorts, you can catch the famous Maldivian sunset in the privacy of Velaa Private Island's sunset water villas or with a glass of bubbly in hand at the swanky CRU Champagne Lounge that extends over the Arabian Sea.
4. Cape Weligama, Sri Lanka
Cape Weligama is set atop a handsome cliff near Galle with a jewel at its crown – the Moon Pool. This crescent-shaped pool is flanked by sunrises and sunsets, which flush Weligama Bay with a spectrum of amazing hues.
5. 137 Pillars Bangkok, Thailand
The only city hotel in our selection, 137 Pillars Bangkok tops this list with the last word on infinity pools. A vision unmatched by any other in a city renowned for spectacular pools, this heavenly body of water presents unobstructed views of Bangkok's Thonglor district from the hotel’s rooftop and is only accessible to guests of its 34 suites. The magic extends from sunset till stardust, or at least until 8.30pm daily when the pool closes.
