We were fortunate to take the 2 day with 1 night stay on Bassac 3 with only 9 people. Nicely split 5 French and 4 English. We had the luxury of 2 guides - one French speaking and Annie who looked after us and the other English couple. We learned so much about the Mekong Delta from Annie as she and her family still live there. Our walk in Annie's village was informative and we got to visit a house and eat lovely fresh fruits, ginger and baked rice paper with sesame seeds. We also visited the school. Cabins on the Bassac are compact but comfortable and quiet resulting in a good night's sleep. Food was very tasty and they accommodated peoples preferences as much as possible. We enjoyed our floating market excursion on the smaller boat and actually boarded the pineapple boat and tried one. Annie also took us briefly to the Can Tho food market on our way to our final drop off. Highly recommended
So greatfull that our friends recommended this gem. It was not too far from airport as I had an early flight the next day, however I was able to be in that old style Bail atmosphere for one night only. Nice cocktails, good food and comfortable spacious villa. Canopy bed to rest peacefully in. I even had a midnight swim!
From arrival to departure, everything at Inle Princess resort was an absolute delight. The enormous lakefront room is filled handcrafted decorations and a beautiful ceiling that stretches 10 metres above you. The outdoor shower is a fantastic addition. The resort grounds are again filled with handmade pots, signs and other decorative elements - all crafted on-site. The pool is wonderful, and quiet, the free breakfast consists of warm freshly made pastries and delicious eggs to order, and the staff are all so friendly and helpful. To have received a hand-wrapped and hand-written gift from the staff at the end of the stay was the icing on the cake. A wonderful experience. One minor criticism was that we found the taxi to the airport to be a little expensive so we sourced our own but a very minor blot on an otherwise fantastic stay.
it was a really good night out, the food was fantastic and really worth to have this kind of flavour experience
"Это действительно райское место, земной рай именно там! Отдыхали здесь с мужем и друзьями, первый раз мне не хотелось уезжать домой
Отель великолепный, номера - это бунгало на воде, под тобой снуют маленькие акулки и множество прекрасных рыбок. В номере есть все необходимое, холодильник, сейф, кондиционер. Убираются несколько раз в день. Кухня заслуживает особого внимания, завтрак обед и ужин включены в программу. Есть еще второй завтрак и перекус в 5 часов, повар виртуоз, меню за 7 дней нашего пребывания ни разу не повторилось, все очень вкусно и красиво. Блюда приготовлены и оформлены как в хороших ресторанах. Всегда большое количество овощей, для вегетарианцев тоже раздолье. Всегда есть фреши и фрукты в вазе, можно перекусить по дороге на дайвинг:) Между дайвами можно сходить на традиционный массаж, 90 минут релакса и кайфа, мы оттуда выползали совершенно счастливыми:) Подводный мир, наверное, самый красивый в мире. Манты, черепахи, акулы, наполеоны, огромное разнообразие кораллов и губок, величайшее разнообразие мелких и крупных рыбешек, ну очень красиво. Отдых был великолепен, недели оказалось маловато:(
Но мы обязательно повторим эту поездку. Огромное спасибо всему персоналу, каждый старался сделать наш отдых прекрасным и незабываемым.
Мы вернемся!!! Stayed January 2017, traveled with friends"
Rachamankha: "Delightful boutique hotel"
"Delightful boutique hotel set in an old building with lots of character. We had a room set around a pretty courtyard area. It was a bit small by 5* Thai standards but nicely decorated and a very comfortable bed. The restaurant is set in a lovely courtyard where you have both breakfast & dinner. It has a reasonable breakfast choice with buffet & a la carte options - I had the Egg Benedict and an omelette on separate occasions which were both really tasty. We also ate twice in the evening (see separate entry). Lovely quiet swimming pool with the sun from 09.00. Very friendly staff who went out of their way to help. Location might be an issue for some people as it is quite far from the market and busier part of town but I would certainly go back to enjoy the tranquility of the place. Stayed February 2017, traveled as a couple"
We stayed here as we were wanting to stay somewhere environmentally aware & we were very happy with the camp etc. The meals we're fantastic, the chef was really to be commended he did a fabulous job. The one observation I would make is that the safaris are focused on finding leopards as you would expect, so if you are interested in viewing other animals speak up. Overall a great experience.
tugu lombok: "Beautiful location, excellent service"
"Spent six nights at Tugu Lombok and can thoroughly recommend it. The beach location is fantastic and the staff at the hotel couldn't do enough for us. If you want a real get-away-from-it-all holiday it would be hard to beat, you can just enjoy the views, swim and laze. But if you want more activity you can go on excursions - the snorkelling trip to the Gilis is probably essential for most, but we did decide against the trekking! The rooms are amazing, we had our own 'bungalow' with a huge double bed, veranda for sitting outside and a small private courtyard if required. But best of all was the bathroom open to the outdoors! The restaurants offer great food and plenty of variety, and we must thank the staff for their friendliness, and helpful service, they made us feel very welcome. The last night send-off was most unexpected and touching. We've stayed in some lovely places but this is hard to beat. "
My husband and his parents stayed at Pindaya Farmhouse this week - while the price is higher than other places in the area, it’s well worth it if you are hoping for a peaceful and serene getaway with delicious and healthy food. It’s a family run business and by the end of our stay we felt like part of the family! Food is delicious and fresh and most of it comes directly from their garden. Meat dishes fresh from the market. The setting of the place is beautiful ; removed but not too far from Pindaya. The place looks like a boutique hotel BnB and nicely designed. We also did a really great trekking tour N and H and did a cooking class. Would highly recommend
It was still cool but not as cool compared to a few years ago. The view near the foot of the Mount Kinabalu was nothing short of spectacular. There is a little gift shop that double as a little convenient store. Locals have to pay RM3 as an entrance fee.
