yes, use multiple accounts. you can use STS to grant permissions between the accounts if needed.

STS works, but I feel like multiple accounts linked is more of a hack than using a single AWS account. Of course, if you use a service that is not available in both regions, use STS.

How is multiple accounts a hack? It's the correct solution to isolation. Using regions is just stupid because now you've attached extra meaning to regions and can't bring up production stuff in other regions for better latency.
