Reverie Siam: "Amazing surroundings and room deco"
Stayed for a night in Reverie Siam with a girl friend and the experience was amazing. Thoughtful service. Although it's located a distance away from the walking street, the hotel had a tuktuk service to bring you to and fro the hotel and the main walking street. We did not have Thai number and the hotel loaned us a phone to call them for a pick up back to the hotel. The room deco was beautifully vintage and very instagram worthy. Lovely outdoor garden if you stay on the ground floor and lovely pools and you can also sit on the deck chairs by the river which runs by the resort. The hotel restaurant, Silhouette, serves some amazing dishes for dinner and breakfast which came with the hotel stay was definitely exceptional. Will definitely stay here again when I'm in Pai!
Rachamankha: "Gorgeous, completely unique experience"
I am confident that this will be one of the best hotel experiences of my life. The setting, designed by Thai architect Ong-ard Satrabhandhu, was gorgeous. The grounds are decorated with lovely antiques in the owner's collection. The service was impeccable, and made the experience particularly idyllic. The pool was stunning, the breakfast immaculate. The common areas--open air reading areas with grand ceilings and beautiful furniture, the library with ceiling-high bookshelves and complimentary brandy--were exquisite. Rachamankha tops out at 26 rooms with no children under 12 allowed, which means the experience will always be serene and intimate. And the price, particularly compared to Western hotels, is completely reasonable. What are you waiting for? Book now, if you can!
Tugu Lombok: "The best hotel I have stayed at by far"
"Hotel Tugu Lombok was the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed at so far. It has beautiful grounds - even if the rest of the hotel was terrible [though it certainly isn't] you'd stay there just for the scenery. The rooms are really gorgeous with traditional Indonesian decorations and a beautiful bath. The food was lovely and the dining areas were gorgeous like the rest of the hotel. We were very impressed with the dinner one night as the staff set us up with a table on the beach. The staff were incredibly accommodating and were able to find us a room at short notice [we'd left another hotel and come here]. The hotel is expensive but you can really see why. I can't recommend Hotel Tugu Lombok enough.Stayed April 2016, traveled with family"
"What a wonderful place.
We are not easily impressed as we have been working in the travel industry for years so have stayed in some of the top hotels of the world but Neeleshwar is exceptional.
We stayed 6 nights and left regrettably so happy and relaxed.
Everything was perfection!!"
kep and nearby Kampot are wonderful places to visit. Samanea Resort is set up totally to be by yourself, lovely pool and great view. it does however lack a bar. I like to sit in a bar area, not just be served
"We spent 2 nights at Tiger Mountain but it could have been much more. Superb stay from our first pick up and welcome to our goodbye.From Pokhara it is about 40 min drive up the mountain on a typical Nepali road but then you arrive in an tranquil oasis where you will only hear the birds. Lodge is located on a mountain with sweeping views over Pokhara valley on both sides. Rooms have amazing views towards the Himalayas, perfect for sunrise watching (they will serve coffee/tea and cookies at about 5.30 in your room to accompany the sunrise)Upon our arrival, the lunch table was set on the terrace with a view to the Himalayas and we were served delicious Nepali dishes.
Tea was served in the afternoon with home made snacks. Followed by happy hour at 6 and diner around 7.30. Again with delicious Nepali dishes. Had amazing jackfruit curry, some sort of stir fried ferns, spinach dish, home made chutneys, water buffalo curries. I think I would have exploded after a week at the lodge as I had to finish everything. Quality of the food is fantastic, all organic, grown in the area, fresh and everything home made.
Even the herbal tea came from their own garden. In the morning there was home made yoghurt with homemade muesli, homemade jams & preserves, honey from Pokhara, homemade bread. Yummy.The lodge offers guides to take you for walks according to your liking. We did a village walk around the hotel and the next day a ridge walk where we had beautiful views over the rice terraces, villages and Himalayas. The guide took us through villages and explained about village life.Staff at the lodge is fantastic: friendly, helpful and offering great service.There is a swimming pool with again magical views, certainly in the early morning you can see the Himalayas reflected in the water.It is a shame it is so far away from Hong Kong otherwise I would be back for a relaxing long weekend.
And there is only wifi in the lobby (if it is working, this is Nepal) so relaxing is really good as you can't connect to the outside world!
Room Tip: Room 11, a triple room, at the end of the resort with uninterrupted views. Room 10, double room, abo...

Reverie Siam Pai: "Perfect step back in time with modern amenities"
INCREDIBLE. Mountain view room which I thought was wonderful. The room itself is stunning. French doors, decorated just right, huge bathroom with free standing tub. Overall the hotel pulls off it's 'colonial, 20s' vibe just right. ITs not overdone, it's just right. Felt a bit like Alice in Wonderland at times which was so fun. Both pools are great, staff super nice and was gushing over the place the whole time. Didn't want to leave.
David’s Kitchen: "Exceptional service and attention to detail"
"From the moment we (my husband, adult daughter, friend and myself) were collected from our accommodation, greeted warmly on arrival and chauffeured back to our hotel, our experience at David's Kitchen will be remembered as a highlight of our holiday.
The staff were attentive but discreet. David's hospitality was much appreciated as was his advice on matching wines with menu choices. And the meal did not disappoint - exceeded all expectations. The food presentation was only excelled by the amazing flavours and textures of each course. I have no hesitation in recommending David's Kitchen for those visiting Chiang Mai who are looking for a very special dining experience."
beautiful spacey room espresso machine, free minibar, which is refilled every day. walk in dress room. and the best of all is the great private infinite jacuzzi pool. amenities are special quality made in thailand and their smell fills the whole room. staff was also helpful giving me upgrade to deluxe room.
There is really nothing to fault with Rakkojae. The rooms and their surrounds are quite beautiful - a pocket of timeless serenity in this busy city. The service is perfectly judged - always helpful, never intrusive. Both the Korean and Western breakfasts were good and substantial. We found it wonderfully quiet but, given thin walls/doors, this does require guests to be deeply respectful of others. This is not a place for loud voices or, fortunately, young children. Some reviewers and travel sites recommend one night in an hanok - this does not do the experience justice or allow you to even come near appreciating the essence of the place. We stayed 4 nights which felt about right, Even so, moving on to our next accommodation - a top-end Western-style conference hotel - was remarkably jarring.
