From Myanmar to Vietnam, Southeast Asia's hotel scene is looking strong headed into the New Year. Here are three properties on the horizon for small business functions or board-of-directors meetings.

Opening in March, Sanctum Inle Resort is a 95-room resort on Myanmar’s Inle Lake. The resort is from the same team behind La Residence Hotel & Spa in Hue, Vietnam, which is a perennial fixture of the "T+L 500." The surrounding area offers access to local markets, pagodas and stupas. For incentive travelers who still need to get work done, Sanctum's Chapter House offers dedicated workspace and Internet connections.

In May, The Chedi Club Jimbaran will open as a private estate on 22,000 square meters in the southern region of Bali, and is a good pick for incentive travelers. 

The resort will have 34 butler-serviced pool villas, each equipped with its own private pool, in-room dining service, a full kitchen, a Balinese pavilion for al fresco meals and barbecues. Villas range from 1-3 bedrooms, 4,000 square meters of secluded indoor and outdoor living space with multiple pavilions, four bedrooms, and a 15-meter personal pool. Robert Nation, principal of Nation Architects, and Jaya Ibrahim, one of Indonesia’s foremost interior designers, led the design. 

There will be all-day dining at The Restaurant, as well as an in-villa dining option, and yet another outlet by the 25-meter long U-shaped pool. The luxury resort will also feature a spa and health club. 

Event venues at The Chedi Club Jimbaran include The Estate (with private grounds and tropical living pavilions), a Three Bedroom Deluxe Pool Villa for up to 20 guests and the open-air main Restaurant under a high thatched alang-alang roof.

Also in May, The Reverie Saigon will open on the upper and lower floors of a contemporary, 39-story tower in Ho Chi Minh City. The hotel has 12 types of accommodation across 62 suites and 224 rooms. Business travelers can choose from five conference rooms and four meeting rooms on the hotel’s eighth floor, as well as an executive meeting room on the 39th floor, all with top panoramic views of the city. Each venue has audio-visual equipment, and premium drinks are included in every meeting.
