There are some incredible hotels in Southeast Asia.
If you are visiting this part of the world, you will be happy to know that you can score some amazing hotels at truly unbeatable prices. Whether you want a resort by the beach or a room immersed in the jungle or simply a fabulous hotel in the city center, you are bound to find something you will like – and that won’t break the bank.
In this post, I highlight my favorite hotels in Southeast Asia – they are all places I have tried, tested and by all means approved.
5 Incredible Hotels In Southeast Asia
Ubud Dedari Villas, Beduli (Bali, Indonesia)
If like me you get to Ubud Dedari Villas at the end of a very long trip across Indonesia, exhausted after an itinerary that is packed with activities, you may as well think that you have landed in paradise.
All rooms at Ubud Dedari Villas are huge and beautifully furnished, and have either a balcony or a patio that overlooks a gorgeous garden with a lovely infinity pool and the lush forest right in front of it.
What you will enjoy the most about Ubud Dedari Villas is the location: at 15 minutes drive from Ubud (and there is a free shuttle for guests), the place is incredibly quiet, and there is no noise at all other than that of the creek running through the forest and the cicadas.
This is by far one of the most amazing hotels in Southeast Asia you can hope to stay at, and it is also great value for money. You can book it here.

The Phoenix, Yogyakarta (Indonesia)
The Phoenix has to be one of the best hotels in Southeast Asia, if not in the world. It is set in a beautiful colonial building, and although all rooms are furnished in a traditional way, they have all the modern comforts.
There is a beautiful swimming pool, a spa and a fitness center, and the buffet breakfast is delicious.
What you will love the most about The Phoenix is the little touches here and there that will make you feel truly pampered. Every night, someone from the staff will prepare your bed and leave a different sweet on your pillow. Everyone is incredibly kind and friendly.
The hotel is nicely located in the center of town so you can walk to many places. It’s a safe haven amidst the chaos of the city. It’s not the cheapest place you’ll stay in Asia, but it is worth it. You can book it here.
Chivapuri Beach Resort, Koh Chang (Thailand)
Koh Chang is the second largest island in Thailand, and there are many hotels and resorts from which to pick. If you visit Thailand, an island getaway usually is the last leg of your trip so you will get there exhausted, and in need of a good place where you can rest and relax for a few days. Chivapuri Beach Resort is perfect for that.
The large and comfortable rooms are a guarantee of quality sleep.
The resort is located at the southern tip of the island, on Klong Koi beach (right off Bang Bao). It is beautifully hidden in the nature, and has direct access to a lovely, clean beach. There is a restaurant and a bar, both at the beach, and you can easily walk along the beach in search of more places to eat. The hotel also counts with a great book exchange – so if you are an avid reader you will find books in many languages.
As the resort is quite a way from other attractions in Koh Chang, the staff will be glad to take you to other places around the island (ie the harbor in Bang Bao beach where you can board the ferry to Koh Wai).
At Chivapuri Beach Resort you will find that the personnel is always kind, polite and ready to help. You can book it here.
Rose Royal Boutique Hotel, Siem Reap (Cambodia)
The Rose Royal Boutique Hotel is an incredible find, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody visiting Siem Reap. It is tucked away in a tiny street, which means there is no traffic noise at all – quite relieving in a town that is a major backpacker hub and where noise is ever present. Yet, it is literally a 2 minutes walk from all the mayhem of the night market and Pub Street.
Rooms are spacious and very comfortable, there is a fantastic pool which is great to cool off after a day of exploring Angkor Wat and the bar makes delicious (and slightly addictive) cocktails. There is a wide selection for breakfast. Not far from it you will find a good selection of restaurants – there is one very close by that is very local and incredibly delicious!
The personnel is very kind and helpful and they all speak fluent English. They are always available to provide information, organize transportation and guided tours.
You’d imagine that such a stunning place will cost a lot of money, but it doesn’t – you can stay there for a real steal! You can book it here.
The Corner Homestay, Hoi An (Vietnam)
The Corner Homestay isn’t a simple hotel. This is a family run business, located in a beautiful house tucked away in a small and quiet alley in Hoi An, Vietnam. Location is simply perfect: it feels like a local neighborhood, but it is a 2 minutes walk from the historic centre and the night market.
Rooms are nice, spacious and spotless, and have all the modern comforts. Breakfast is delicious and filling. The lovely personnel helps guest arrange activities, transportation, scooter and bike rentals, and even laundry.
What you will enjoy the most about The Corner Homestay will be the feeling of being with a local family, yet having all of the privacy and comfort you very much need. The price to pay for this is a real steal too! You can book it here.
South East Asia is packed with good hotels that can be easily booked online at a real steal. Sure enough, there is no point in roughing it up when it is possible to be comfortable at a reasonable price.
