A stay at the Datai puts you as far into the heart of the jungle as you can get while still having ready access to foie gras and Champagne. The hotel's majestic pavilions and courtyards sit in a tropical rain forest overlooking a half-moon cove edged by silvery-white sands. The 110 guest rooms in the main building, a rustic fortress of teak and dressed granite, are luxuriously furnished and equipped with a 37-inch LCD flat-screen TV, a Bose sound system, wireless broadband access, and a Lavazza coffee machine. The roomy villas, finished in polished local woods, are perched along a creek that meanders down to the cove. The beach is completely undeveloped (except for the Datai's sister property, the Andaman, a hundred or so yards away); at night, flaming torches planted along the water's edge light your path. Wildlife abounds: Frisky monkeys play around the terraces and poolsides, and the screech of hornbills can be heard at dusk. Activities range from complimentary guided nature walks to golfing on a championship 18-hole course a five-minute drive away.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2010
