Seclusion factor: The resort ensures privacy with your own plunge pool. Spacious villas seamlessly blend outdoors and indoors, with an open-to-the-stars tub. Guests won’t want to leave the master bath, which resembles a mini spa. All have glass doors leading to an outdoor tub.

What makes it special: Banyan Tree trains its spa therapists at the hotel’s academy in Thailand. Try the unique Rainforest hydro-thermal experience with an eight-step progression through hot, cold, and steam rooms, with mud, salt, and shower massage treatments.

Cost: from $419; 800/591-0439 or banyantree.com
