Langkawi's popular Bon Ton resort has added a magical collection of nine antique houses from Malaysia's ethnically diverse regions, arranging them in a tree-lined neighborhood a five-minute drive from the beach. Guests in the Chinese House can take tea and coconut cake on the wraparound veranda, the resort's best spot for viewing sunsets into the Andaman Sea, just beyond the long infinity pool and the bird-filled wetlands. The Colonial House, built by Arab gold traders in Georgetown, Penang, has four stylishly furnished bedrooms, with plump chairs and couches festooned with ethnic throw pillows. Bathrooms in all the houses feature deep wooden bucket-style bathtubs, and evening turndown includes delivery of the next day's breakfast (with exotic fruits like mangosteen), placed in the house's fridge. Guests can visit a nearby animal clinic that is funded by both Bon Ton and Temple Tree and even walk the rescued dogs.

When to go: February and March see the driest days and the most sunshine.

Which room to book: The best value can be found in the Estate House, the best views from the Chinese House.
