    WOW resort recommendation

    Any recommendation for a great wellness resort in the region? Requirements are;
    - 2 to 3 hours flight max.
    - beautiful, tranquil and peaceful place to relax, get pampered and be WOWed for 3 days.
    - private pool as an option.
    Thanks!

    Beach areas within 3 hours direct flight from HKG would be Sanya and Cebu.

    Slightly over 3 hours would be Phuket, Koh Samui and Bali.

    I have heard there are some very nice health spas just out of Manila as well.

    try www.plantationbay.com; in conde nast's top 25 resorts of asia. it's on the cheap side *and* it's still 5 star. it's in cebu/mactan, philipines. my sister in-law was there two weeks ago and liked it so much that we are now all going back with her for the easter break! looks like they have good spa packages; but the diving seems to be the best draw. good luck!

    Crocodile's recommendations are definitely good. Try the Four Seasons in Bali as well.

    Phuket for a slew of options. The Banyan Tree in the Laguna (20 minutes to the airport) has villas with private pools.
