Aside from the unexpectedly historical building and the long tale of Cheong Fatt Tze and his family, the guide who told us the story was also amazing. Talking enthusiastically about history for almost 2 hours straight mustn't easy. On top of that, she's super friendly and willing to answer every visitors' questions.
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.
"There is everything to love about this hotel. The beautiful artifacts, massage temple, swimming pool, beach, rooms, and most importantly, the team of excellent service staff that are always ready to service you.I only had one tiny gripe - the air conditioning units are not placed in a strategic position, so the room was difficult to cool down. It remained hot throughout the day, but then this is a person who loved the cold.Expect to fall in love with this place during your stay here."
We stayed three nights in Flower Island in March 2015. We really enjoyed, the staff was very friendly and committed to make your stay like a being in paradise. The snorkeling experience was amazing, best we had in Palawan! Just few meters from our room, with all equipments available for free at the hotel! Nice breakfast with fresh mango every day! Dinner food could have been better, but ok!
"I have heard about 4Rivers for a long time before finally visiting in for the first time about 4 years ago. I was there again last week and realized how much I missed it.
After a short boat drive from Road48 surrounded by lush jungle, a feel of Apocalypse Now, and a bend on the river, there… you discover 4Rivers!
These white tents floating in the middle of this majestic hilly evergreen jungle, 4Rivers is like a haven of comfort and beauty in the middle of Tarzan’s home place!
Koh Kong Province is definitely a must! Out of the beaten track but with the access becoming easier every year, if you were ever hesitating going this way, don’t!"
"So impressed with our stay in Tugu Bali.
The villa was a delight to be staying in with all its Balinese history in its decor and surroundings. First class in interior layout and cleaning services.
The staff were friendly and so attentive including to the demands of an exploring toddler.
Our meals were delicious and choices seemed unlimited.
Japanese restaurant menu def worth exploring.
The Gardens and waterways were a delight to wander around.
Would highly recommend for a relaxing stay, where the mixture of calming ambience and historical treasures added to such an enjoyable atmosphere.
Only minutes walk from beaches.
Many thanks for memorable stay that is highly recommended to all ages."
Cuisine Wat Damnak: "Didn’t know what to expect and had a memorable evening"
A relaxed environment, not at all pretentious. You can eat inside or out. This was booked way ahead, which we understand is necessary. Wonderful, imaginative food, served without fuss, but just attentive enough.
The River Resort: "Superbe ! Notre plus bel hôtel au Laos"
Superbe : l arrivée en bateau et l accueil, l aménagement paysager du site, la qualité des constructions et la décoration, les 2 douches dans la chambre, le petit déjeuner surtout lorsqu il n y a pas le buffet et que l on peut choisir parmi du salé et du sucré frais et bien cuisiné, les 2 grandes piscines, le personnel discret et efficace, le prêt de vélo (et cerise sur le gâteau l attention parfaite de vous offrir une bouteille d eau fraîche pour votre balade !). Bref après 3 semaines au Laos nous sommes en mesure de comparer : du très très haut niveau, luxueux mais où on se sent bien ! Et la literie parfaite...
spent a few days in the resort and it was very relaxing. The pool is very big and the nature is everywhere. We really enjoyed the quiet area surrounding the resort. The beach is not that big but the view was very peaceful.
The Island Lodge: "Wonderful honeymoon stay at the Island Lodge"
We stayed at the island lodge for one night to give us an opportunity to explore the Mekong delta. Our stay was very relaxing, the room was beautiful and very clean, the pool and sauna facilities were also pleasant and relaxing. We opted to go on a tour to the unicorn and Phoenix islands nearby in My Tho, guided by a member of the hotel staff. The tour was great for finding out more about the Mekong delta culture, and we bought some of the local coconut sweets and honey to take home too!
