Asia’s best stay-and-play golf resorts

Best options combining courses and accommodation

For most golf tourists, the words “stay and play” are music to the ears. So to promote stress-free golf holidays in Asia, Asian Travel Media has compiled a list of some of the best options in this tourism niche combining golf courses and accommodation.
In China, Mission Hills Haikou, Hainan, opened in 2010 with more than 500 five-star hotel rooms as well as Asia’s largest mineral springs and spa centre. By 2015, the accommodation will broaden when Ritz-Carlton and Renaissance hotels open here too. The same company also offers the recently upgraded Mission Hills Shenzhen.
In Vietnam, the Laguna Lang Co Golf Club, Hue, combines exclusive Banyan Tree villas and a separate Angsana hotel with a championship course set on a three-kilometre stretch of beach.
In Thailand, the Black Mountain Golf Club, Hua Hin, has pool villas to rent, a water park and wakeboard park, a spa, tennis and volleyball facilities, an excellent driving range and a fine course.
In Malaysia, the Sutera Harbour Resort, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, is a two-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur. Kota Kinabalu has history, culture and charm, while three nine-hole layouts are within a few minutes of the resort.
Other high-quality stay-and-play options in Asia include Spring City Golf & Lake Resort, Kunming, China; Danang Golf Club and Ocean Villas, Vietnam; Chiang Mai Highlands Golf & Spa Resort; Red Mountain and Loch Palm, Phuket.
