Jing's Residence is a charming, tranquil boutique hotel inside the walls of Pingyao, the beautifully preserved financial capital of the Qing dynasty. The hotel has a small number of rooms, perhaps a dozen, each a bit different one from the other spread over the two floors of a multi-court yarded Chinese villa. The decor throughout is designed to soothe with warm earth tones, modernist, Asian inflected furniture and soft wood accents. There is a lovely seating area and library on the second floor, accessed by a superb curved wood staircase. (...) Jing's Residence is a perfect complement to ancient Pingyao and well worth its moderate, by U.S. standards, cost. It will bring tranquility to any patron, no matter how hard the travel.
"Left a review on the other entry for this hotel...but again, can't speak highly enough!!!! Most comfortable room and bed we have been in on our month long trip to Bali. The staff was lovely and accommodating and we were delighted by the facilities.

Maison Polanka: "Escape the Maddening Crowd"
"Siem Reap has 1000's of visitors and hotel beds. Maison Polanka is by contrast an oasis in this tourist buzz. Great landscape, pool, rooms, food and service. Their wonderful staff arranged a fantastic guide who taught us a great deal about Khmer history and culture and pointed us in the right direction for shopping and dining out (tho dining in was perfectly wonderful). The only flaw in our stay -- we should have stayed 5 or 6 nights, so that we might have travelled further afield into Cambodia -- visiting Tonle Sap for example. We mentioned it was our husband's birthday, and the loveliest cake appeared, with a card signed by all the staff, all ""on the house."" Pure magic.
Stayed February 2017, traveled as a couple"
We found this place on our last night on Gili Air, if only we found it earlier! It is so wonderful, we had the best stay. From a wonderful welcome with delicious welcome drink to a sensational breakfast before we left, everything has been 5 stars. They even offered complimentary massage in the new spa, which is built in a beautifully designed circular bamboo building. The design of this whole place really is something else. My husband and I could not stop commenting on how well thought out this place is. We loved it quiet surroundings and remoteness. It really is a hidden gem. It is worth spending the extra money to stay here. It is pretty great value really. So sad to leave but we will definitely be back for a longer stay next time.
"Confidential address Wonderful hotel: Refined tasteful Integrating perfectly into the landscape -Restauration- Rooms Massage Pool -Bains hot spring water: Perfect for a place so far away from towns and villages 👍Bravo👌 For discreet home and friendly and professional ultra efficient "Mathilde" young woman: young and already experienced a 5 star far from the base of tourism.
Fell in love with this hotel as soon as I arrived and had to sit in the magnificent library for a while to wait until my room was ready. This hotel reminded me of a smaller version of Raffles in Singapore. Great attention to detail, superb breakfast, friendly staff and spacious rooms. Loved the pool on top of the residence and had a great meal at the restaurant. Location is superb with close proximity to BTS and other excellent restaurants at Rain Hill.
Sanak Retreat Bali: "Beautiful Retreat in the Rice Fields"
"Beautiful hotel, villas, common rooms an gardens are extremely tastefully decorated. Nice pool, fantastic spa, very good food (best breakfast on Bali so far).
We can recommend a trip to the base camp from the hotel with the possibility to drive with buggies further into the mountains. The view from the basecamp (eg sunset) is fabulous"
muang la: "A piece of heaven in the middle of nowhere!"
"After a rough first week of travelling and very cold weather, we were thrilled to spend a couple of nights here. Gorgeous room, with HEATERS and hot water bottles, tastefully decorated, lovely bathrooms, with home grown bathsalts. The setting is delightful, on the river, and the infinity pool on its own island was a good place to unwind with a book when the sun comes out. All the little hidey holes have access to drinks and snacks and service is never far away. The spa itself, with the two huge hot spring-fed pools are elevated so you have a view of the surrounding countryside and are a panacea for weary limbs, and the massage sets you up for the next part of the journey! The five course dinner is light and carefully crafted, full of flavour, and the cocktails inventive and yummy. Little braziers kept us warm while we ate, and a large boma-type fireplace was comforting for an aperitif. We had a long walk on our free day round the local Khamu village, and enjoyed seeing village life at a slow pace, the pace it is lived. Excursions can be arranged to nearby hill tribes, but we didn't know about that. Even though the local staff dont speak much English it is good to see the management trying to give back other local community by providing jobs and an enhanced local spa for the village. I can't rate this place highly enough
