Remote Outpost: Anantara Xishuangbanna Resort and Spa, China

38 of 72

China’s tropical Dai prefecture, located in the southernmost corner of Yunnan Province, is a culture-rich region seldom visited by foreigners. That’s about to change with the arrival of this 80-suite, 23-villa resort that’s adding a much-needed dose of luxury to the area. Set along a wide river bend that feeds into the Mekong, the resort takes its design cues from the local Dai tribe, with pitched teak ceilings and bright native fabrics. Book one of the courtyard-style villas with a private swimming pool. xishuangbanna.anantara.com. $$$
