Why this hotel?: Exclusive villas. Award winner. Gay-popular.

A nice boutique resort with 8 beautifully restored antique “Malay Kampung” villas. Each villa is individually decorated in Aseana style and feature modern facilities (air conditioning, TV & DVD, free WiFi).

Five of the villas have a private sun deck with free-standing wooden bathtubs. The resort is set within the tranquil garden of a coconut plantation with a pool & jacuzzi that overlooks the mountain ranges. The beautiful Pantai Cenang Beach is just 5 minutes away.

The Nam restaurant offers a eclectic mix of ‘East meets West’ cuisine and an extensive wine list. The funky lounge bar, housed in an old Chinese timbre ship house, is a great place to relax with a drink.

Bon Ton has won critical acclaim from the likes of chef Raymond Blanc, Tatlers Travel Guide, Condé Nast Traveller and Time Magazine. But the real difference? Profits fund a local animal sanctuary, run by the resort’s owners.
