Upon arrival, it’s obvious that this is going to be a Thai-style hotel, but it’s one that pulls it off without looking dated. Rooms are rustic and wooden, but never look in need in renovation; instead, they look authentic and welcoming. Featuring a welcome mix of both green and beach spaces, Kupu Kupu works perfectly as an island getaway location, and its private pools provide that sense of seclusion and being on a desert island that we’ve all fantasised about. There’s a bar and restaurant onsite, as well as one of the best spas on the island on hand to give you the moments of bliss that you deserve. Sitting right on the beach, it’s a top hotel in a top spot that’s worthy of gracing any list.
