Any experiences you can share? What is weather like in various locations at this time?
in fact, there are quite a number of places in southeast asia that meet your requirement.
1) East Coast Park in Singapore
2) Tioman Island in Malaysia
3) Phuket in Thailand.
but since you are planning for a one-week holiday which may be rather long for a beach holiday, you might also wish to make use of a few days to go visit some historical sites in those countries.
if you're in Singapore, you may wish to visit places of historical values, such as Fort Siloso at Sentosa, national museum or even the old shophouses along Joo Chiat Road.
in Thailand, you may wish to make a 3 to 4-hr trip from Phuket to the small town of Kanchanaburi which is located south of Bangkok. in this historical gem, you can witness the famous Death Railway, and even catch a ride on the age-old train still powered by steam engine. cool, right? besides that, i somehow recall that there also used to be a nice waterfall somewhere nearby.
well, if you are interested to find out more, i think you should be able to gain more information about these places from the internet.
hope my post is somewhat helpful to you.
have a safe and enjoyable trip ya.
