Rachamankha: "Haven of tranquility…"
We stayed here for 5 nights in July 2015, and can honestly say what a magical place it is. It’s in a brilliant location within the old town, and yet is so peaceful and tranquil. The layout of the hotel feels beautifully designed and considered. The service and staff and are very professional, helpful and friendly, in particularly Paul the manager. If you have chance to stay here then do - it really is unique and we couldn’t recommend it more!
Marvellous! If you are coming to George Town, you’ve got to stay here if only for 1 night. Take the tour to understand the building. With curry followed by bread and butter pudding and creme anglaise for breakfast, heavenly.
"My mum and I stayed here during our first trip to Thailand and it was the perfect introduction to Chiang Mai. The staff were so friendly and hospitable, and the room and grounds were breathtaking. Good location, walking distance to a lot of temples and the night markets. The only down side was that the walk at night is not very well lit. I will definitely be back when I return to Chiang Mai."
Dewakan: "Wong family"
Excellent. Family of 9 enjoyed the dishes very much and also like the ambient. Although out of the city centre in Shah Alam in the KDU University College campus, it worth the trip!
"Place Located in Jimbaran. A very secluded area as most of the driver is not familiar of the small road. Ambiance Perfect! They have 3 types of seating area: Dining Room, Bar and Garden. If you want to see the art creation of your food, i suggest you seat at the Bar area as that's where you can see what Chef does! Like 'live show'. Garden seating has a good ambiance but we didn't seat outside because of mosquito (that's just me). Dining room has a semi private arrangement as each table has curtains in between other tables which is a great idea! It has a very homey-cozy feeling! Service They have more than enough staff to assist you. They serve with smile and very warmth. You can feel that they are proud of their work and that they enjoy it! Food Here comes the bomb! We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu and it's soooo worth it! The creativity and intricate workmanship is WOW! From presentation to food taste is just the best! My fave was the number 3, Fish! (It's in the photo - looks like a flower). The food that excites me the most was the dessert called Bali Breakfast (in photo- looks like egg)! It's something you MUST order! The coconut and mango flavor with the crusty (granola i think) is perfectly combined into an amazing dessert! This place has thought of everything from the start to the end of your dining experience. They'll give you something to start of to enhance your palette and a drink at the end for digestion...just WOW! It's one side of Bali you've never experienced before and it's really worth every $$$ and time. Definitely highly recommended to visit and try when in Bali. Not recommended for family with kids. I'll be back to try the other dish on my next Bali Trip!"
"We spent two very special days at Muang La and were super impressed with the personal service, attention to detail, glorious cuisine and luxurious accommodation. Jop and his team were fantastic and made sure we had everything we could possibly want. Highly recommend this unique spot to explore some of the most beautiful and remote parts of Northern Laos.

KHWAN BEACH RESORT: "Beautiful modern duplex Villas just off the beautiful beach"
"I spent a bit of time on some of the islands. My favorite Island was Ko Phangan with its cheap and simple little bungalows at the beach, but!! If you are going to do a little more upscale, and if Koh Samui is your island of choice, then I do highly recommend Khwan Beach Resort. The staff (I believe are French ex pats) are super charming, friendly and accommodating. You also get a free ride to and from the airport, which is a big plus. Breakfast is brought to your room each morning, so you can enjoy it in the privacy of your own abode. Each abode is very modern, has two stories, two bathrooms and a private pool. As the showers are partially open to the outside, you do get your share of lizards bathing with you! Very cool. The Villas are very private, which I did appreciate after spending much of my time in Thailand in not so private accommodations. Only about a 3 minute walk to the beach, where the water is clean and warm and the sand feels like silk between your toes. Enough restaurants along the beach to keep you fed, but can also take a car/bike/tuk tuk about 10 minutes to a wonderful shopping and restaurant area. All and all, great time here! "
Amazing place! Luxury, privacy and wonderful staff, definitely one of the best places to stay on the gili islands, thank you Julie and your slow family for having us! Couldn't recommend this place more
Mudanwan Villa: "Tranquil and GREAT hot spring facilities!"
"I have stayed in Mudanwan for 2 night with my family. We got a big room on the ground floor with our own hot spring pool and swimming pool in the back yard (privacy guaranteed), a large bathroom with another indoor hot spring pool, two king size beds, and it was just fabulous!!! We went for a full board package and the food was just gorgeous and fresh! There's a 24 hr juice/snack bar too. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the services were just great. We really had a fantastic time there. Although the location is really in the middle of nowhere, they do offer a nice shuttle service."
Tugu Bali: "Loved this hotel!"
"For the record , this is the first time I've ever given a 5 star rating ! This hotel was awesome! Especially the staff . So welcoming and friendly. When we first arrived , the Assistant Manager , Ari greeted us with a welcome beverage and introduction to the hotel . There was a dinner show going on at the time in the lobby so we're able to watch while we waiting for our room to be ready . When we were walking to our room , it was like being in a garden temple , so much culture and greenery and art work , it was like a museum Of Bali culture and art. Nice walkways , bridges , areas to have romantic dinners , etc and close to the beach . I can't say enough about the room! Our own pool! How unexpected! And an out door swing and outdoor bathroom with a fish pond surrounding it. So serene. It was off-season so the hotel is very quiet , no parties or loud music which we loved. They also have a lovely pool area, afternoon tea, cooking lessons, and great restaurants . Our favourite was the outdoor barbecue restaurant overlooking the surf where we had the most perfect view of the sunset . I would definitely highly recommend this hotel , loved it, thank you ."
