Our Favourite Ocean Views from Hotel Rooms Around the World
Sit back flex your toes and feel the warm sand on your feet, a nice cold drink, with a warm breeze blowing across your face. A perfect dream, or an ocean view from your next hotel room? As much as a pool is great, almost nothing can beat looking out at the sea straight from your beach resort room. So we have scoured through thousands of beach resorts and picked our favourite ocean views from hotel rooms around the world.
Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia
Keeping the idea of sustainability the Song Saa Private Island in Cambodia is built from reclaimed and recycled materials locally sourced. Situated in the Koh Rong Archipelago, this resort which spans two islands has 24 spacious villas with a private pool and outdoor showers, with some villas built on stilts on the water. In the ocean view villas, you get 200sqm of oceanfront all to yourself. Relax on your private beach deck and enjoy the luminous views of the blue waters stretching out in front of you. The private shoreline will ensure that you have privacy to enjoy spectacular sunrises all by yourself. To refresh yourself you can head to the sanctuaries, where spa services are available to bring some of the tranquillity & refuge that the island provides.
The recipe for a great view in Maldives is sticking the room right on top of the water, which is what you will find at the Finolhu in the Baa Atoll in the Maldives. Enjoy a private beach with powdery white sand & crystal clear lagoon waters right outside your room. These rooms are spectacular with vistas of the Indian Ocean spread out in front of you. Go for an early morning sea dip, in the afternoon snooze in the hammock as the warm breeze puts you to sleep. The Ocean Pool Villas are located right above the sparkling waters and are inspired by the bright colours of the French Riviera. The villas come with their own private freshwater pool as well as direct access to the ocean. They come with plenty of unique and luxurious touches to make your stay all the more pleasant. The Ocean Lagoon villa offers you mesmerising views of the sparkling blue ocean and the lagoon. If you are after some green and privacy then the beach houses are best with their combination of lavish tropical greenery and access to the ocean.

This next one is the Fusion Nha Trang, an exceptional beach resort on the pristine white stunning coastline of Cam Ranh-Nha Trang in Vietnam.

Alila Seminyak, Indonesia
The Alila Seminyak is located on one of Indonesia’s hippest beaches. The beaches in Seminyak are known to be legendary and is considered to be one of the best in Bali. The ocean suites are spacious rooms which allow you to wake up to some invigorating sea views while enjoying luxurious settings. Walk out onto your terrace, recline on your daybed and sip a cocktail as you watch the kaleidoscopic sunsets from your room. The door to the terrace opens up fully allowing you to feel even closer to the sea. If you are going with family then we would recommend the Beach suite, which is steps away from the beach and has a second room with a day bed for the kids.
