"My wife and I stayed in MesaStila for 4 nights at the end of October, the occasion being our babymoon (last holiday before the baby is born). From start to finish our experience was wonderful and relaxing. Firstly the level of service from all staff at the resort (drivers, waiters, reception, spa) was exemplary. My wife had a couple of (minor) health issues during our stay, the staff were accommodating and helpful and coordinated (i.e. our driver had been told in advance to help us pick up medication after our visit to Borobodur). The location may be the primary draw for most first time visitors and they will not be disappointed. The old colonial resort is charming, set amidst a coffee plantation and ringed by volcanoes. The greenery gives way to new shades of green, wave after wave of lush vegetation. I found it simply stunning. Activities are many and will suit all sorts. I did some very tough road biking in the area, hitting a couple of almost 20% gradients, fortunately giving way to breathtaking views and awesome descents. My wife relaxed by the pool and enjoyed the spa. We both were amazed by the temple of Borobodur and were fortunate to witness a stunning sunrise. The restaurant is also very good, serving a wide variety of Indonesian and European cuisine and was enough to keep us well satisfied throughout our stay. We very much enjoyed our stay and have thoroughly recommended the resort to many friends. We are already looking forward to coming back (again and again!)."
"Paradise away from the city. Only stayed one night as part of a package. If relaxation with some tranquillity, good food and 5 star customer service - would recommend. It is a bit of a drive either from HCMC Airport of from where the Bassac Boat tours operate from. But well worth it. Would like to return for longer next time. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Stayed January 2017, traveled as a couple"
Tugu Lombok: "Amazing stay at Tugu Lombok"
"We spent a memorable 10 days in Tugu Lombok. Everything about the hotel was incredible. From the fireworks on the beach, to world class massages and cuisine. The hotel staff went out of there way to ensure a luxurious a stay as possible - including our nighttime beach barbecue under the stars. The food is delicious. We have had bbq fish all over south east asia, but Tugu Lombok really pushed the boundaries, blending traditional flavours, with the freshest seafood. We had a nightmare on the day we were leaving whereby our boats were cancelled, but hotel Tugu pulled out all the stops at the last minute, to find us an alternative Particular mentions to Hanny, Elly, Henry, Januar - but frankly the entire team were incredibly attentive. We very much look forward to revisiting Be Lucky!"
Mie Cafe: "Amazing food and service"
I came here for lunch by myself and was amazed by the pleasant environment. I sat at the garden and the staff nicely put 2 fans facing me. The food was great - I had beef tartare which was marinated with local herbs and topped with plenty of parmesan cheese. I also had the fish amok which is a classic Khmer dish. The meal was ended with a homemade vanilla ice-cream. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Dewakan: "Amazing restaurant – GO"
"When we watched John Torode's Malaysia programme back in the UK , he showed this place and so we booked it for our last night in KL. I have to admit as it got closer I got concerned that we had made a mistake. No malaysian we spoke to in KL had heard of the place and it soon became apparent that it was on the outskirts of town, a good hour away from central KL and forms part of the KDU campus. I need not have worried however. The whole experience from start to finish was brilliant. The service was attentive, the team enthusiastic about the food and the food itself was inventive and interesting. We had the 17 course tasting menu and every dish was different and innovative in its use of traditional Malay ingredients. Notable dishes included a perfectly rendered crispy duck skin over succulent rare duck meat, as well as the almost Heston Blumenthal like childish fun of putting together the slow baked red snapper in broth dish. There was only one dish we didn't particularly enjoy, which was the prawn dish and we found the texture of the raw prawns a bit odd, but it was clever cooking nonetheless with the flavour combination. This place is worthy of a Michelin star. My only concern is that being so far out of town and having only 10 tables, it is not getting enough clientele. So please, please if you enjoy inventive and innovative cuisine, go to this restaurant."
Misool Eco Resort: "Phenomenal! The most incredible experience and marvelous resort"
This is our favorite place in the world now! Raja Ampat is astounding and Misool eco resort is the true gem of the region! We were there as snorkelers and loved every aspects of our stay there. Everything was organized and personalized flawlessly, from the booking process and transfer from Sorong to our perfectly set snorkeling planning on a great variety of gorgeous sites, everything about our stay was indeed quite perfect! Our bungalow was impeccable and spacious, wonderfully appointed and located, with the best outdoor bathroom of all times, the food was incredible with a variety of local and international choices, the snorkeling sites were remarkable. And maybe above everything else, everyone at the resort was formidable, each and every person working there warmly and kindly gave us the best experience of our lives! We are traveling around the world for a couple of years and this is by far the most amazing location and resort we've visited! The conservation efforts of the resort are working, the area is thriving again, it's inspiring. To us, Misool eco resort is a true haven and bliss is what we continue to feel when looking back at our time there. We will return for sure and highly recommend them. Thank you all again for making our time in Raja Ampat so unique and unforgettable.
Dewakan: "Innovative yet true to its Malaysian heritage"
Dewakan can easily beat some of the Michelin starred restaurants hands down. Chef Darren's creativity with local ingredients, whilst staying true to his Asian roots and elevation in the composition of both in every single dish is remarkable to say the least. Don't skimp or worry bout your diet or whatever - just go for the 10 course dinner. You won't regret it!
