From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
At this 30-acre resort, the beautifully landscaped grounds with whimsical stone statues and the range of on-site activities (including a rock-climbing wall and golf simulator) go a long way to compensate for the site's lackluster Coral Bay beach, only a sliver of which is swimmable. Guests can relax instead at one of the three pools, on hammocks scattered around the property, or in the Spa Village where a Shaolin kung fu master teaches morning tai chi. Set in dramatic volcanic stone buildings that rise just above the surrounding palm trees, the 297 guest rooms all have balconies and are accented with natural fibers and textiles woven by the local Li and Miao people. Fifteen duplex cliff villas feel the most like private retreats, with dedicated butler service, heated infinity pools, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the turquoise sea. When complete, 11 bars and restaurants will dot the property. At the Tea House, walls are lined with pots and teas sourced from all over China, some more than 50 years old.—2009 Hot List

When to go: November through early March, if you like it less hot and humid.

Which room to book: The Pavilion categories include a sea-facing plunge pool.
