Bawah Reserve’s Elang Private Island, Indonesia
When you visit the tropical island of Bawah with its four islets, you might wonder why it hasn’t chosen to place more villas within its tropical landscape. Well, now it’s about to. Bawah Reserve is set to launch a new retreat on the island of Elang. Elang will become another mini Bawah and it will feature six villas, plus a dining area, infinity pool, activity centre and boat house, so if you don’t want to share Bawah Island, you and your friends can take Elang all to yourself.

FCC Angkor, Vietnam

What could be better than one FCC Angkor in Siem Reap? Two FCC Angkors in Siem Reap. The colonial building, which was once the home to the French governor and then the renowned Foreign Correspondent’s Club, now has a mirrored version of itself on the opposite side of the road. Throughout the columned two-storey hotel you can find nods to its past as a journalists’ hangout, including old-fashioned typewriters and Bakelite phones in the suites as well as a photography exhibition in the hotel’s art gallery, and photography masterclasses for guests. Within the original building guests can dine at the Mansion restaurant or relax in the Scribe bar. While across the road they can find the new spa.

The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences

When the Atlantis Resort opened on the Palm Jumeirah, it helped put the Emirate on the world map. Kylie entertained the guests, and fireworks lit up the sky. Now they are about to open Atlantis 2.0. The USD$1.4 billion project will sit next down to the original Atlantis Palm. It is expected to be as glamorous as the original hotel, as it also brings with 17 restaurants helmed by chefs such as Heston Blumenthal and Jose Andres. And whereas the first hotel has just one aquarium, this will have three.
