Selective Asia’s award-winning portfolio has been extended to 16 countries with the addition of Bhutan, Nepal and Tibet. Here are some new tours, properties opening their doors and vessels setting sail in the coming months.

New Properties


Largely unexplored for more than 30 years, Sri Lanka’s east coast is a real gem and the recently opened Karpaha Sands resort is billing itself as one of the region’s “best kept secrets”. Set along a 15km stretch of stunning, pristine beach and within a beautiful bay, the property consists of spacious tented suites either directly on the beach or within their own private gardens – and has been designed to provide eco-conscious living amid a lush tropical setting. Karpaha Sands also benefits from being less expensive than other luxury offerings in the region.
Selective Asia’s 12-day East Coast Sri Lanka costs from £2729 pp (using deluxe accommodation) excluding flights.

New Itineraries

This is one for the adventurer out there! Untouched by tourism, steeped in tribal traditions and with pristine scenery (including some of the world’s most impressive coral reefs) are the highlights of a new 15-day trip created by Selective Asia’s Indonesia specialists. It’s been designed to enable travellers to go beyond the obvious and under the skin of diverse tropical islands, exploring unusual highlights as you journey into Sulawesi and on to the Moluccas and West Papua at the archipelago’s eastern edge.
Selective Asia’s 15-day An Insider’s Indonesia costs from £2762 pp (using first class accommodation) excluding flights.

Setting sail on its maiden voyage on August 17, Heritage Line’s new ten suite luxury vessel Ylang will ply the unspoiled waters of Lan Ha Bay – a quiet extension of (and more serene than) well-trodden Halong Bay. The three-day, two-night Senses of Lan Ha offers a mix of on- and off-shore pursuits encompassing distinctive experiences and active excursions including cycling and hiking on the island of Cat Ban as well as kayaking, yoga and spa treatments as part of the Ylang’s wellness philosophy.
Selective Asia will be able of offer the Ylang cruise as part of its fully tailor-made Vietnam programme. 13-day Vietnam in Style, for example, costs from £2857 pp (using first class accommodation) excluding flights.
