I was poking around the local library's travel section and found this lovely book:
Asian Resorts from Akihiko Seki (author and photographer)

It features some of the Aman Resorts, such as Amankila, numerous Japanese ryokan spas, some of the finest properties in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives and all parts of Asia. You'll find stunning photos of the Royal Pita Maha, including the terrace where we "breakfasted" and a copy of our villa w/private pool. This resort is offered occasionally on LL and is an excellent value at auction or as buy no package.

It's a fun book to read and gaze longingly at, as the author writes in his intro, "simply the best" resorts in this region of the world.
