"The fact that the long tail boats with their load motors are not allowed up to the hotel is the first idea one gets that this place places importancce on the wellbeing of its visitors. About 500 yards away, a one legged rower steps on board from a boathouse to bring us to the jetty. Here we were met with an ice cooled towel and drink. Our bungalow was stunning, the bathroom huge, actually it was three rooms, a large one with two washbasins leading to a room with a bath looking out into a small walled garden in which there was a blissful outdoor shower. I enjoyed this so much that I showered twice a day during our stay.In the room they had thought of everything, including binoculars and a bird watching book. The mini bar was stocked with complimentary soft drinks, alcoholic ones were of course not included. Supper was superb, one more of less 'has' to eat here as one cannot get away but the standard of the kitchen is fantastic. I had divine butter fish steamed in ginger which could not have been more delicious and my brother had green Thai curry. We sat outside and there were blankets for when it got chilly. Breakfast was just as good, everything imgainable was on offer and the banana cake was so morish that I asked for the recipe which was given to me. We also took advantage of the beautiful Spa which was excellent. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful and on our last night we found a package with the typical shoulder bag of the area in it and a note thanking us for staying. This place was an oasis of calm, the concept is perfect. Stayed February 2017, traveled with family"
"Stayed at Inle princess for 2 nights on a family holiday to Burma. We had 3 rooms in total and unfortunately we didn't get the front river rooms but even the standard rooms are quite unique and special in their design and construction. It was cold in the month of February especially in the evenings and night but the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The bathroom got much colder but it was manageable. We travelled by boat throughout our two days in inle- which was also an amazing experience. Service at the hotel was excellent. We usually ate our lunches in the market, but had all the dinners in the hotel itself as it's not possible to travel out at night. Every avocado dish was outstanding. We also got a 60 mins couple massage at the hotel which was ok. Disappointed that they didn't have the option to take a steam included with the message as this was priced separately and the amenities/ facilities didn't seem worth the extra cost. Overall a great stay, beautiful hotel, highly recommend!"
I arrived at koh samui airport to meet family that were staying at the wonderfull sea dance resort. I was greeted by my aunt and a staff member. Ash. What a lovely guy. So freindly and warm. I was taken to the sea dance resort and from there on it was the best beginning to a holiday I could have hoped for. Poy the owner whom I met the first night made me feel like a long lost family member. I have never felt more at home and welcomed in a hotel ever. These guys just made everyone feel at ease. Other guests in my eyes were so at ease due to the way the staff were. Every one smiled at each other and were freindly to each other. Special mention to faith Helen and Danny. Fantastic people. I wish I could have stayed longer and learnt everyone's names.Heck I wish I lived there. I have to go back one day for longer. the I will miss these guys sincerely.
Cuca: "BEST RESTO IN BALI"
"I can't get the phenomenally tasty food from Cuca out of my mind. The clever play on familiar foods you & I grew up eating but presented in a modern way with textures to please your palate to the moon and back. Must try items include the pulled pork pancake buns, turkey meatballs & all the desserts!! Great cocktails too. Sit at the chef's table to see the kitchen in action! Big big props to Chef Terry & his sous chef (sorry didn't get your name bro!) who are both MALAYSIAN! So sad to see our talent out of the country instead but so happy to see what great food & flavours our home grown revolutionaries serve up to people from the world over at one of Bali's top dining destinations!"
Tugu Bali: "One of the Most Romantic Hotels in the World"
It is amazing that within 10 days on this property we barely saw no other guests and the only people were part of the army of helping hands that are around every corner. It is a little patch of heaven. In here. We were living in the villa in the middle of the lotus pond, bridges connecting to our house. We wanted to take a batch and suddenly the bathtub was prepared and orchids swimming on the water. Our private swimming pool was maintained throughout the day, and we didn't even recognize how and by whom. It feels that the helping hands are hidden behind every door and will make every of your wishes come true. It is truly amazing.
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
Sandat Glamping Tents: "The best accommodation I have ever experienced, bar none"
"Where to start? I was a bit uncertain about the 'glamping' concept. But upon arrival I was instantly won over. My fiance and I were blown away by the design, comfort, beauty and cleanliness of the 'tent' we stayed in (the word scarcely does it justice). We stayed in the 'Ylang-Ylang' suite. Our own plunge pool, isolated from the world and facing deep into the jungle was perfect for quick dips to cool down from sunbathing, reading and generally relaxing. The wonderful staff even added rose petals in the evening of our last night, which was very romantic and an incredible touch. The circular bed was supremely comfortable and a great size (surprisingly - I'm 6'3). Every detail of the room was beautiful and perfectly presented. The area is a short drive from Ubud. The free shuttle service into and out of Ubud worked seamlessly, and the drivers were very happy, friendly and great to talk to. The breakfast was amazing. There were hot savoury Indonesian options, freshly brewed Kopi Bali (Balinese coffee), fresh pastries and muffins, incredible spreads (like local mango honey and coffee honey), and more. Breakfast is available from 7.30 - 11.30 - which suited us perfectly for our lazy, relaxing stay. Other reviews have mentioned insects and wildlife, so I will add that we didn't have any issues whatsoever. You should of course apply sunscreen and bug spray liberally whenever you go outside in Bali, and then you'll be fine. Lastly the staff here were just incredible. From Buda, our shuttle driver, to Wayan the yoga instructor who gave us our own personal lesson in the most incredible setting amongst the rice fields, to the amazing receptionist who after we complimented her on her local jewellery offered for us to take it(!!), to Tengo, the lovely manager who drove us all the way to the airport on our last day when the resort was short-staffed due to a religious festival. Please extend our personal thanks to everyone! This review might sound over the top, but I really am wondering how I will find another resort, ever, that will match Sandat. We absolutely adored the comfort, ambiance and the incredibly friendly staff. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone."
Misool Eco Resort: "Active Family with 8 year old and 4 year old boys"
"We traveled all over Indonesia for 9 weeks, and we absolutely LOVED Misool. Here's the scoop: 1. Accommodations - There is nice variety of room types, and every room has a fantastic view. In my estimation the resort's website accurately portrays the cottages and villas. They are all tastefully appointed, very clean, and well maintained. Stunning views right over the ""house reef"" (a large beautiful reef right out in front of the resort that is teeming with wildlife - sharks, turtles, and a huge variety of sea life. We stayed in one of the largest villas - Villa Utara - HIGHLY recommend this unit if you're 4 or more people. All units have their own decks with direct access right into the lagoon and over the reef.(...) 4. Diving and Snorkeling - Let me first state that I have been diving in more places around the world, than anyone else I've ever met. That being said, Raja Ampat is the best diving I've ever done, seen, or heard of on the planet. Dense population of wildlife, massive variety... simply awesome. The snorkeling on the house reef is better than most of the diving that people would rave about elsewhere. 5. Children and Family - at age 8 and 4, our boys do not dive. However, they still had a blast. They learned to snorkel, we went paddle boarding, kayaking, playing on the beach, looking for coconut crabs at night (found many)... no shortage of ways to fill the day and have a great time. Look, if you've read this far, I'll tell you that I only have a few reviews on trip advisor. Like most people, I'm more inclined to whine if things don't go well than to report my good experiences (check my other two reviews that are one star). However, we loved this place so much that I feel compelled to urge you to go. "
"My mom and I recently travelled to Chiangmai and had a wonderful meal at David's Kitchen! Everything was delicious but the pumpkin soup was amazing and a must try!! The owners and staff could not have been nicer. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Chiangmai. Also a wonderful addition to our experience which made getting to the restaurant so easy was a pickup service (at an additional cost) to and from our hotel. Made getting to the restaurant so easy!"
