"My husband and I stayed at the Cabochon Hotel over the Easter Weekend in April 2015. We found the hotel through The Secret Retreats website, and this being our first trip to Bangkok and Thailand, we decided to try something a little different from the standard Hyatt and Four Seasons of the world. Our experience with Cabachon started before we even left home. I had a couple of questions in terms of transport from the airport and booking at a restaurant we had been told was a must. I emailed the hotel asking for advice, and had a response within a few hours, not just with advice, but a restaurant booking confirmed at an exclusive restaurant over the Easter weekend on the date/time we had wanted - WOW! (...) The location of the hotel is great, located close to the sky train and shopping area's, easy to catch taxi's and massage parlours and great restaurants within walking distance. It's definitely our hotel of choice for Bangkok, and we'll most certainly be back."
"At Tugu Malang they really understand how to treat hotel guest. Such hospitality is rare but absolutely great. Each member of the staff goes the extra mile to please the guests.
The hotel also doubles as a museum. It is really a fabulous place. Rooms are well equiped (not your standard decoration though).
We also tried the restaurant: same story ... Staff is super helpful and friendly food ... A huge choice of dishes from malang street food, chinese, dutch and italian cuisine ... Pages and pages of dishes. The kitchen must be super organized because food arrives pretty quickly and was so really good.
If you go to Malang.... This is the hotel to book"
"truly best ever cool place for the one looking for true nature, calm, meditation, relaxation and especially ressourcing.
the whole staff is so nice and looking after you for the best from pick up service to satisfy as much as posible any of your needs
Food is very fine considering this remote area with difficult supplies and in large portion to satisfy even big eaters, great wine list as well to enjoy !!!!
Remarquable comfort of the tents surely hard to maintain in such surroundings
Rare experience to be renewed for sure
thanks again to everyone in 4 rivers for such experience and wonderfull stay"
Tugu Bali: "Beautiful hotel. Great service"
We spent 2 nights at the hotel for our honeymoon at the incredible Puri Le Mayeur suite...which was essentially a single-story house that has its foundation lying over a pretty lotus pond. The suite itself was huge (probably much more than the 2 of us needed)--but we made the most of it! The staff provided top-notch service from beginning to end, from welcome drinks to breakfast in our rooms. We also received a 15-20 minute "welcome massage" at the spa, and frequented the private plunge pool in our room! The hotel itself also has a very nice pool. The hotel provides ocean-views from many of its rooms (the view from the Puri suite was a partial, but still breathtaking), as well as from the common areas. There is a bar at the hotel itself, as well as many restaurants. Regarding the food, the breakfast we ordered to our rooms (Indonesian breakfast) was so delicious that we ordered it again! We also did the "dinner in bed" for our Christmas honeymoon night! The dinner took place on the hotel's lawn, which overlooks the ocean and provides an unparalleled view of the sunset all while being served drinks, food, and dessert. Overall it was a relaxing stay and the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
"A true oasis in Bali!!! This hotel is amazing!!! Staff was fabulous!!!! They could not have been more accommodating Grounds are beautiful! We stayed here at the end of a long trip. It was truly an amazing end to our trip before the long trek home. "
"This place cannot be compared to others. You arrive with a boat which engine is turned off before approaching the hotel. Someone comes on board to lead the boat to the shore. You then arrive in paradise. This hotel is located north the lake Inle. Rooms are large,so are the bathrooms with an outside shower. It can be cold at night but the hotel staff will kindly offer to light a fire in your room which will keep you warm all night.
For us mosquitos were not a problem . Just remind to take anti mosquitos product with you: you are next to the lake so of course there will be some. You will enjoy breakfast looking at the changing light above the lake before starting your journey on the lake. The spa is hidden among flowers: do not leave before enjoying a treatment there .
We loved it and plan to go back."
"We so loved every moment of our stay here. Everything we needed was at this hotel and we felt so at home. There is an excellent Thai restaurant in the hotel and we so
apprecated our beautiful Thai breakfasts although a 'Western' menu is available.
There is a warm intimate atmosphere here and yet there is space to sit quietly alone if required. The roof top pool is a lovely place to relax. 'Happy hour' was a ritual we so looked forward to.
The soi is marvellous..where one may find a super restaurant and a great night theatre. It is short stroll to the Skytrain and it's easy to explore the local area. The very best thing about this hotel is the beautiful staff.Ms Yeh and her staff are delightful and we so look forwards to our return.
This hotel just nourished us in every way Stayed January 2017, traveled as a couple"
David’s Kitchen: "Outstanding food and outstanding service"
My wife and I ate dinner at David’s kitchen and found both the food and service to be world-class. The fois gra was exceptional and my duck with orange sauce was perfect. Both the quality of the ingredients and it’s preparation made the meal memorable. The presence and attention of David was fairly unique given the size of the establishment. I would unconditionally recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves French food.
"Just go! It's THE Best. I would suggest spending at least a week. We only got 4 days, and it wasn't enough. I can't wait to go back. The staff, food, and rooms were all wonderful. As far as Baans go, I'd recommend Baan Tamarind. It's location is awesome, and it's very private. Also if you like to snack get some from the mainland to bring. There isn't much snack wise, and it can get expensive to buy what snacks there are.
What a wonderful place to stay - highly recommend it. Staff are wonderful and rooms clean and comfortable. Great food and pool/bar area. Lots to see and do in the area and transport to Kuching easily achieved . Looking forward to coming back in the very near future .
