Wa Ale Island Resort
Why We Love This Hotel
Nature: Sea eagles soar overhead, the verdant jungle sharply contrasts with the expansive blue sea, and sea turtles mull around the soft stretch of private beach. The resort can arrange a number of nature excursions, but here simply stepping out of the villa counts as an adventure.
Luxury: Guests to this patch of luxury can lounge on their deck and enjoy the sound of the lapping ocean or dine over a gourmet meal prepared with the freshest ingredients on the planet.
Remote: Only accessible via a three-hour-long speedboat ride, Wa Ale Island is exceptionally remote, which translates to a feeling of unparalleled serenity.

Tented Beach Villas
These 11 state-of-the-art luxury accommodations feature unobstructed ocean views and can house up to four guests. Toeing the line between a "villa" and a luxury safari tent, gentle breezes pass through spacious, sun-kissed rooms. The king-sized canopy bed is draped with a soft white mosquito net that accents the dark wood floors, and the plush sofa can be converted into two single beds. Directly outside is a deck area that is appointed with lounge furniture from which the ocean is directly accessible.
The smaller treetop villas offer a unique and intimate experience. Perched in a canopy of trees, these accommodations offer an expansive view of the sea from their cozy balcony. The villa is appointed with a king size bed and outdoor shower. Perfect for couples traveling together, the resort's two Treetop Villas comfortably accommodate two guests.
Situated in the jungle, the fitness center contains a number of free weights and TRX equipment pieces. There is also a resident yoga therapist on hand to lead guests through regiments.
The centerpiece of the resort, the Main Pavilion is a point of convergence for guests. The lofty teak structure is appointed with several rattan armchairs and coffee tables.
Table Tennis Room
Perfect for light competition or an after-dinner diversion, the Table Tennis Room is a welcome addition to the resort.
Main Pavilion Restaurant
The resort serves Southeast Asian and Mediterranean dishes that appease the taste buds without affecting the waistline. Fresh and healthy, the kitchen sources food from the resort's island or nearby local foods. The only seafood served is sustainably caught from the archipelago itself. A British chef heads the kitchen that serves an ever-changing array of dishes that range from seafood prepared with bold sauces to pizzas baked in a brick oven. While the breakfasts of chia bowls, granola, and yogurt seem on-brand for the location, eggs and bacon ensure everyone is happy, and there is also a daily selection of pastries for guests to enjoy.
River Café & Bar
With leather barstools and a selection of drinks, this cozy, river-adjacent café and bar is a great place to grab a cocktail and relax.
