One of the perks of be­ing a busi­ness trav­eler in Asia is the choice of ho­tels. Not only is the qual­ity gen­er­ally high – in­ter­na­tional hos­pi­tal­ity groups are well rep­re­sented through­out the re­gion – but dol­lar for dol­lar (or yuan, or peso, or what­ever other cur­rency you’re car­ry­ing), you can find hos­pi­tal­ity val­ues that would be con­sid­er­ably more costly at com­pa­ra­ble ho­tels in the West.

Whether they are in emerg­ing cities where op­por­tu­ni­ties are grow­ing, or in es­tab­lished com­mer­cial hubs, trav­el­ers can book five-star prop­er­ties with ameni­ties such as well-equipped gyms, great pools, lux­u­ri­ous spas, com­pre­hen­sive busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties and ex­cel­lent food and bev­er­age op­tions – all for less than you’d ex­pect to pay in many ma­jor Western cities. At press time, deluxe rooms in the fol­low­ing top ho­tels were avail­able for around $150 when book­ing online for a night in Oc­to­ber.
