Asia's top 7 alternative suites

Booking a Presidential suite is the ultimate in luxury, for those
that can afford it. But suites at a level or two below the Presidential
suite often offer a staggering array of luxuries, from oversized space
to private terraces to personalised service, at a (relative) fraction of
the Presidential suite cost. Check out these alternative suite options
from around Asia:

Tree House Villa, Shangri-la Boracay, Philippines

This two-level accomodation mixes rustic jungle charm with some of
the most spectacular sweeping ocean views found in the Philippines.
Offering a private outdoor jacuzzi in the balcony/outdoor deck,
personalised butler service and 2,325-square-foot of luxury, the Tree
House Villas are discrete lofts in the hillside, providing the ultimate
in privacy.

Grand Water Villa, One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives

Maldives evokes visions of overwater villas. So how do you pick the
best one? Size is an important factor, and a private pool is paramount:
the Grand Water Villa at One&Only Reethi Rah
has both (and two of the latter!). Measuring a total of just over 2,500
square feet, the Grand Water Villa  comprises 300-square-foot of
outdoor living space with two private pools, including a sizeable
infinity pool that (seemingly) meets the coral blue waters just below.

Conrad Royal Oceanview Pool Villa, Conrad Koh Samui, Thailand

With space aplenty, Koh Samui has a number of options that provide a large space and a picturesque seaview. But Conrad Koh Samui‘s
Royal Oceanview Pool Villa is not only oversized (4,600+ square feet),
but has a 22.5 metre long infinity pool, a manicured outdoor viewing
lawn, a fully stocked kitchen and can also arrange for a private chef.
Its highlight is its ability to make it a two-bedroom space by
connecting to the one bedroom waterfront villa, if also booked

Indrakila Suite, Amankila, Bali, Indonesia

The dramatic setting of Amankila
– perched on a hillside just a stone’s thrown away from the sea,
against the backdrop of the rising Mount Agung – is perfectly
complemented by its signature three-tiered swimming pool. But with a
stay at this suite, you won’t have to visit the common pool. Named after
the green hill hosting the sprawling resort of Amankila, this suite has
its own lounging bale and a private pool, perfect for in-suite outdoor
dining and barbecues.

CEO Suite, InterContinental Hong Kong, Hong Kong

In a list dominated by resorts where space is plenty, it is odd to
see a suite from a city known for its high density. But the
5,000-square-foot CEO Suite at the InterContinental Hong Kong
is larger than most suites, and even larger than some presidential
suites! One of the hotel’s three signature suites, the suite features a
full service bar, an intimate outdoor terrace with jacuzzi, as well as a
personal meeting/multifunctional room for business or private dinners.

Upper Suites, The Upper House, Hong Kong

While relatively smaller in size at 1,230 square feet, the hotel is a
journey towards peace in otherwise muddled Hong Kong. The stunning
Andre Fu-designed suites, with a very spacious living space perfect for
inviting guests, a bedroom and a rather generous 400-square-foot
spa-inspired bathroom – all with city or harbour views – are expertly
outfitted with bespoke furnishings in soft but warm colours. The
bathroom, with its limestone-clad freestanding tub (and TV) overlooking
the city and harbour is particularly noteworthy.

Duplex Suites, The Peninsula, Bangkok

Like the two contenders from Hong Kong, the Duplex Suite at The Peninsula
exudes classic luxury in the otherwise chaotic city of Bangkok. The
3,500-square-foot suite is best described as ‘mansion-like’, with a
high-ceilinged sitting room, disturbed only by the balcony inside the
suite. Replete with private landscaped terraces and a whirlpool, the
classic luxury theme shines through with its dark paneling, rich
fabrics, antiques and artwork, and (naturally) private studies.
