We were really impressed with this resort. The room was beautiful, with outdoor bathroom and enormous size. Friendly and attentive staff, amazing breakfast, great pool, stunning scenery and grounds. You can have breakfast any time of day - such a brilliant idea! The training of the staff has been brilliant, without exception all of them are very good. People looking after the grounds, restaurant, bar, cleaning, front desk, concierge... all are a credit to the hotel. The beach isn't fabulous, as there's a lot of sea urchins and low tide is really very low exposing coral and rocks, but it was the only negative. Top recommendation.
Amata Lanna: "Cutest boutique hotel"
"We visited Chiang Mai in April and stayed at this beauts hotel for 3 nights!
The hotel is tiny, not many rooms but it was just perfect! It is so unique and quirky!
Morning breakfast is served around the pool and the evening market with lots of food places is a short walking distance away.
Staff were wonderful, we would definitely return to this hotel and the beautiful Chiang Mai!
"Hiii ! This is for many times I visited this city, BANGKOK. THAILAND!!! I heart you ever. For this time I traveled with my cousins & her daughter, for them that was 1st visit & memorable they whispered me at the plane :p Well, i would like to falls some wordings here about this boutique hotels! We spent only 3 nights 4 days on the first week of June, this hotel is stunning & room was spacious with living room shared & an amazing design... & other good point is their location was a central of bangkok in Sukhumvit street as i know every single corner way of it.
Almost forgot, my room with a shower in the bathtub anyway, it was really an unique style i have ever seen... so perfectly! Service was excellent since we got an assistance from the staff, the girl one who wears white blouse & served our breakfast is well named ""A"" (read : ei'), the bartender names Thanuwong Hompan Kun, the girl i forgot her name who welcomed us when we were check in at evening & the guy at the roof top who always met when i was swimming at the roof top ...
i thanking to you guys & warmest hospitality when i was there. Ohh ya, we had dinner at 2nd night in lovely boutique hotel (The Cabochon), the food was really fantastic taste & good presentation as same as we had breakfast style (semi buffet & ala carte service) :) I highly recommend this boutique hotel & am already planning return for a holiday with my sister (hopefully get special rate / hotelier rate since me & her are hotelier in Bali) :D next year where i will most definitely return to The Cabochon Hotel Thank you & i do sorry to keep you waiting a month for my reviews :)
Do not worry i remember that, & now see above ! 555555 Kapunkaaapppppp!"
"Beautiful Private Villa with with Private Pool My husband and I have a honeymoon staycation in this villa, and we loved it so much. It's located not too far away from the beach, but enough distance to stay away from the crowd. So it’s very perfect for honeymon. We've got a very beautiful spacey villa with a private pool and very spacey backyard. We stay at Villa Number 1. With beautiful interior and big bed, also we love the open bathroom so much! We Love the Eco Concept
Slow Villas is very eco-friendly, we’ve got our own bottle for drink and we can bring it outside, wether for dinner outside or beach time. We can also refill it everytime, we don’t need to buy extra water. We’ve got our own kitchen with complete utensil, so you can stay all day long at the villa. And we’ve got yoga matt, which I never found on another villa/hotel, we can join the free yoga clas everyday at ten in the morning. The Best Breakfast!
Because Slow VIlla doesn’t have restaurants, they will serve the breakfast at our villa, which you can choose from English themed-breakfast to Australia to America. It’s very delicious. We enjoy it on our table beside the pool. Photogenic Villas
As a travel writer and enthusiast, I love taking pictures of anything. And I love every side of our villa. It's beautiful and we made a lot of beautiful pictures. lol! Best Services
The staffs were very nice, also we can rent the bicycle anytime. Room Tip: It's perfect, don't forget to buy food or vegetables, you can cook it on your own kitchen!"
Great charm and romantic place to stay and visit the beautiful city of Luang Prabang.Personnel very attentive, very good restaurant and intimate well situé.Velo free, but you can also visit any walk
Booked for 1 Night for my propose day, is a great place especially you want to do nothing by just relaxing and enjoy the day..very friendly staff, romantic and quiet as well. surrounding are nice but a bit lack of light at night at the backyard. by the way, i have to give extra credit about the pool.
Fantastic service, pools and beautiful rooms. As close to Seminyak as you need to be while still enjoying eace and quiet. Incredible warm staff. The Villa has four pools which makes lounging very easy. This was a highlight of our honeymoon.
"Mrauk-U ended up being a highlight of our trip to Myanmar. Unapologetic for what it is, this is not a resort for the picky. It is rough around the edges, and it does seem priced beyond its means. And yet, in the end we were so happy we stayed here. If you are considering splurging on this little gem, then it helps to release any unrealistic expectations. The rooms are rustic, imperfect, sexy, and luxurious. Loved the spacious bathroom area with double vanity, separate tub and shower. Found the king bed to be super comfy and slept well. This is a great resort for couples. If you ask for a room with king bed, you will get flower petals strewn every evening. Being surrounded by lotus ponds in rustic charm make for a super romantic excursion. Feels like a retreat. No TVs on premises and poor WiFi. It helps to have a local SIM card for internet—indispensable for Google maps used for sightseeing. We rented the rickety hotel bicycles each day and loved it. Staff is fabulous, friendly, warm, and kind. The kitchen serves probably the best food you can eat in Mrauk U (other than in someone’s home). The prices are also surprisingly reasonable. Eat as much Rakhine food as you can while here and they can make you Rakhine noodle soup for breakfast if you order a day in advance. The setting is remarkable, away from the town and in its own village. It is great fun riding the resort’s rickety old bicycles through the village, into Mrauk U town, and around the ruins. We did this two days in a row and loved it. Recommend you start early as possible around dawn because it gets hot in the afternoon. Also recommend using GPS/Google Maps. You can make a large circuit of the ruins in one day but two is better. We stayed three nights and it was perfect. We did not do excursion to Chin villages. I have it on good word that the local owner of the resort gives back to the community, if that helps encourage you to stay. You can get here by car or boat from Sittwe. We picked this resort to avoid having to deal with the government boat schedule and having to spend the night in Sittwe. As of writing this, the resort does not list the prices for its airport transfer (boat from Sittwe) on their website. The price for two people is over $500 r/t. This was shocking to me at first because you can take local transport for a fraction of the cost ($40 per person-ish r/t on the govt boat). However, you would have to stay overnight in Sittwe and it would be a hassle. It seems silly saying this, but if you can afford to stay here at all, it is worth paying for their transfer service. The price stings a little but it is so worth it. The resort has its own boat jetty, and your transport to/from Sittwe is as easy as can be. It’s a really fab ride and infinitely more comfortable than any other way of getting here. They actually cook for you on board (great food). Plus you can arrange to come out here without having to overnight in Sittwe in either direction. That means liberating time to do other stuff in Myanmar and enjoying a silky smooth journey to remote Mrauk U. Overall I would not have wanted to stay anywhere else in town and strongly recommend staying here if you have an inner princess to please. When you come with an open mind and heart, your perspective can be transformed and you may come to enjoy it as much as we did."
Mie Cafe: "Best meal in Siam Reap"
Siv Pala is a Cambodian chef to watch out for. He trained in Switzerland and has added European technique to Khmer cooking that is fresh and innovative. We tried the highly rated, over rated, very formal Damnak lounge but it pales in comparison. We had both lunch and dinner here the same day because it was so good. We had the gourmet set menu. 5 courses for $24 US but brilliant dishes starting with a shrimp cold starter and the fresh fish soup, then two amazing entrees-a langoustine crepe and an oxtail stew. Both were subtle with rich texture and full of umami. The setting, too, is lovely. Outdoor patio, romantic, opposite of stuffy. Staff were always attentive and the chef, good-ooking per my wife, youngish man of impeccable manners greeted us after dinner. Best meal of our three day stay. Do not miss!
"One of the most beautiful places we have been ever. It s worth the price.
Absolutely lovely bungalows, huge room, amazing bathroom with a nice external shower (option we chose), spotless clean, fruits every day and they prepare your room each night before sleeping time. Luxury and discretion.
The food is the best we had in restaurants in Myanmar and we were lucky to chose the cooking lesson at local family since we could get some recipes and have a authentically nice experience with locals.
We had some massages: excellent !
The place is so beautiful that sometimes you doubt if you should go out do something else
We did not want to leave and keep great memorie"
