Pulau Joyo Resort
Pulau Joyo is a new and extremely well-appointed addition to the eco-luxe scene in Indonesia, set on a pristine island in the little-known Riau Archipelago a three hour boat ride from Singapore. There are eight gorgeous driftwood palaces and Java houses furnished with rare finds from across the world, with indoor and outdoor living spaces scattered with sofas and sun-loungers open to the sea air. There is a 23m pool and a towering open-air games and pool house set amid lush, perfectly manicured gardens. The resort has its own 140ft charter yacht and a world-class spa with a good menu of treatments and very experienced therapists who pamper you in complete privacy. For those of you who love barefoot luxury, the bar has been seriously raised here. The resort is chic and sophisticated, yet it still maintains a relaxed, rustic vibe with an emphasis is on the unspoilt nature and traditional craftsmanship and materials used in construction and decoration - a wonderful combination.
