Amazing scenery, excellent beach, brilliantly designed tree houses, very good foods and well trained employees. Manukan island has the best beach in the area in terms of soil and snorkelling and this resort makes the experience even better one
"Seeds is such a beautiful restaurant, definitely a hidden gem in Yangon. People who love fine dinning must pay a visit. The restaurant has just opened for one year, but already well known for tourists. If you have had enough local food for your trip, Seeds will definitely cheer you up by their top class standard western food. It is a very romantic place with all beautiful settings for couples. Facing the lake, you can enjoy sunset with cocktail before dinner."
"My wife and I recently stayed two nights here towards the end of our holiday in Myanmar. The room had everything we needed and was both comfortable and clean, plus the balcony provided a great place to sit and relax towards the end of the day, whilst also watching the birds over the adjacent fields. We were made to feel incredibly welcome by Aye-Aye and her extended family, who were also exceptionally helpful. It was as though we were staying in their home. The food was first-class and we enjoyed sampling new local dishes, such as banana flower salad ! It was great that Aye-Aye gave us the heads-up in the morning as to the menu for dinner, so we could refrain form eating too much at lunch ! Overall the peace and quiet of the Farm House was perfect for us and we had no desire to go out in the evening for dinner, given the high quality of the food provided by Aye-Aye. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here."
Maduzi Hotel: "A hidden gem of a hotel in Bangkok"
Wow! This is the second time we've stayed at the Maduzi Hotel on Soi 16 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok. Our room was spacious, huge larger than king sized COMFORTABLE bed, work area for laptop and fax messages, included (free) non-alcohol beverages and snacks in fridge, plenty of amenities in bathroom, including an unusual jacuzzi tub (2 can fit....). Very close to Asoke SkyTrain elevated train(BTS) and MRT underground subway stations. Close to shopping at Terminal 21 Shopping Center, close to Soi Cowboy for go go bars, and the Argentine Steak House is a 10 minute walk....Outstanding. The cost...you ain't gonna believe it. A tremendous value compared to any of the big name hotels along Sukhumvit Road. Contact the hotel directly on their website - and initiate an e-mail to them to find out what deals are available. OUTSTANDING. (Please: the hotel has CNN in the Lobby, but not in the room - Al Jazzeeria and BBC are in the room) - although there is a Bose radio and dvd player, neither that player or the t.v. had an accessible USB or HDMI port to plug in your content from a laptop or external hard drive or smart phone. This needs to be addressed, but does not distract greatly from this room.
Unlike many popular and expensive hotels in Myanmar with extravagant yet very poor in taste decorations, Pindaya farmhouse stands out with cozy and warm ambience. No TV, no hot shower but that’s ok... it’s more natural that way... It fits exactly for people who look for different tastes when they travel. Farm hosts are not only extremely hospitable, but very good in making meals. We are treated with beautiful breakfast of variety of farm grown fruits & Shan noodle. It’s almost like visiting a friend’s house for a night. It was during high festive season in Myanmar of Lighting Thadingyut festival when I was there. Many people make lanterns out of local Shan paper. Night sky was filled with floating paper lanterns. I can’t express how much I enjoyed staying there for a night. I wished I had more time to stay there a bit longer to do some cycling among those beautiful valleys, canola fields and wine yards. Needless to say how pleasant highland weather was. It was a memorable stay, it was an instant love and joy.
Reverie Siam Pai: "Best hotel in Pai – great design. Superb breakfast!"
"This is by far the best hotel in Pai. Beautifully designed with quirky touches. The restaurant is voted the best in Pai - but isn't actually very good. However, the breakfast is sublime and staff incredible. The main swimming pool is lovely and relaxing, the 'riverside bar' is a waste of time so just head straight out and explore the unique Pai - it's what you are here for afterall? We had room / bungalow 8 which was gorgeous but a little dark, I would have liked to see another, brighter room. That said, really comfy bed and the bathroom with Jacuzzi is fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel!"
The Iland is magic and Slow Villas gives you the confort you need to relax. Great people working always ready to help and share experiences with you. The beach is 5 minutes walking, offering with some very good restaurants and the perfect sunset.
Supanniga Eating Room: "This is a review of the Supanniga main location on Sathorn 10"
"Supanniga Group has several restaurants over Bangkok and, somehow, all seem to merge (at least as the TripAdvisor is concerned) into one location at Sukhumvit 55. This is unfortunate, since all have their distinct personality. In particular, the main location on Sathorn 10, is a more interesting version of Supanniga and diners are unnecessarily diverted to the Sukhumvit branch. Try Sathorn Soi 10 and you'll not be disappointed. Traditional Thai cuisine at its best served at a very pleasant location in a well hidden but easily accessible small soi near the Chong Nonsi BTS. Food is superb, try it if you want to taste the real Thai food. Also, for tourists/short time visitors, this should be your chance to see Thailand from inside. Avoid the glitter of the main avenues, go deep into side sois and you'll discover an entirely different, and more authentic Thailand."
The Tiger’s Eye: "Love goes through your stomach"
"I was meeting an old friend to catch up on life, business, future and past. We had dinner at Tigers Eye and decided for the tasting menu with the carefully selected wine to accompany. Your experience is like tossed from the different sensations of Southeast Asia, to NY and Paris, still keeping that fine taste of Khmer cuisine and it's representation. Dinner conversations is truly accelerated by being at the right place, with right food and wine. Tim and his team makes Phnom Penh shine. See you soon again."
THE SAMAR: "Idyllic oasis perfect recovery for Angkor wat visitors"
We visited Cambodia for the sole purpose of seeing the historic and amazing Angkor wat sites. Thankfully we chose a gem of a hotel in the Samar. This is the perfect hidden gem, it is an oasis of peace and tranquility, and a unique boutique hotel. The hotel is of a high standard, with friendly helpful staff who can arrange your trips and ensure your stay is excellent. The pool is quiet and essential to aid recovery from the heat and busyness of visiting popular historic sites. Food was excellent with prompt service when required to catch your transport for touring. Rooms were clean, comfortable, peaceful and unique making your stay special. This is definitely a luxury hotel where you are made to feel special with excellent service and standards. This is a perfect special place to stay and I would definitely recommend it and will definitely return.
