5. Holiday Villa, Cherating, PahangPhoto: holidayvillahotelcherating.com
While there are some truly budget rooms at the Holiday Villa, you may want to consider splurging on a luxury suite with its own private plunge pool. No matter which room option you choose, the service at the hotel is amazing and brings return visitors year after year. It helps that the ocean is a mere 100 yards from the hotel and the grounds are replete with tropical flowers.
