Maison Polanka: "A HAVEN OF PEACE AND COMFORT"
"I wish we could claim responsibility for finding this hotel on line and booking it ourselves. But it was all done for us, and from the moment we stepped inside the sanctuary of its garden we were pampered, spoilt and generally looked after in a way which we often dream of but rarely experience. This really is one of a kind, with setting, accommodation, staff, food and service to match. If you can get a room - and there are only five - then this is a must-stay hotel. My only regret is that we are unlikely to return to Cambodia, but have been left with lasting memories. Room Tip: Any room you can book will be fantastic"
"This is the first time I have reviewed any accommodation on any website, but I am moved to do it following a lovely stay at Tiger Mountain. I went there in a poor frame of mind as all my trips to Nepal in the past have been trekking holidays, but this time I was prevented from treking long distances due to injury. My wife and daughter had gone off on the trek leaving me feeling a little grumpy. But it didn't last. Tiger mountain lifted me from the moment I arrived. There is an air of tranquility about the place which is hard to describe, but it is soothing, warming and embracing. All the staff are fantastic. They are attentive but not overbearing. They are helpful and take the time to understand you, and then offer ideas which enhance your stay. I did some lovely walks guided by in-house staff who knew the area and people so well. It just makes the walk so much more enjoyable. I was also carefully steered away from an idea for a walk which I had, which with hind site would have largely been a waste of time, ending up doing a superb replacement instead. This approach to guests runs through the organisation from top to bottom, and also rubs off on the guests. Although traveling alone I couldn't have wished for better company, I had my meals with other guests who were great company and became friends. On top of that Marcus, (the owner), found time to join us and added to some very enjoyable evenings. And what of the accommodation, well the setting is great, my verandah affording terrific views of the Annapurna range, what better way to enjoy that early morning coffee delivered to your door. And inside there are all the ameneties you would wish for, provided in an environmentally thoughtful way. The food is delicious, fresh ingredients and an imaginative chef combine to produce fantastic meals. And I think it is the staff which is Tiger Mountains greatest asset. On talking to them, most have been here for years, some since it opened, and that means visitors benefit from staff who are knowledgeable and work as a team to provide an unparrelled experience. Yes, I did enjoy my stay immensely. A big thank you to Marcus and ALL his staff."
This is a wonderful place with superb accommodation, a deserted beach and fabulous infinity pool. The food is outstanding and the staff excellent and and couldn't do more for you. The attention to detail sets it above the rest. Highly recommended.
"I don't recommend getting to Pai at night, at least not drive to there.
In the night it is a bit hard to find and the hotel couldn't be found on the car navi.
Other then that it was a very welcome very cosy hotel.
Our room was a bit far and you can get a bit lost there but it is a part of the place magic.
It reminded me a bit like Alice in wonderland with all the bushes.
The room was great and clean, the ride to the city was very comfortable for those who don't have bikes there."
"This amazing lakeside hotel was my favourite hotel during our trip to Burma. The tranquil arrival by boat set the scene for a wonderful couple of nights stay. Hibiscus flowers decorated the bed and the towels in the bathroom. I loved the outdoor shower and nice to have the loungers to relax on to watch the sun set over the lake. The restaurant had a nice selection of Asian and European dishes and the wine list featured some local wines that were from a vineyard only a few miles away. A magical place to stay
Tugu Malang: "prachtig hotel in koloniale stijl"
"mooie schone luxe kamers aan een vijver. Ontbijt heerlijk en uitgebreid.
Theetijd moet je zeker meemaken; koekjes en dawet waren erg lekker.
Hotel ligt in het centrum aan een groot plein. Fietstocht met John was een succes vooral het gekleurde dorpje aan de rivier Brantas sungei. Personeel vriendelijk en behulpzaam
Alle ruimtes waren smaakvol ingericht en een aanrader voor iedereen."
The food, ambience and service are exceptional. The restaurant seems to be single handedly elevating the fine dining scene in Chiang Mai (one would expect a restaurant of this caliber in Bangkok or Hong Kong rather than Chiang Mai). Impressive to see David overseeing the entire operation and one can truly tell this is his passion project.
I stayed with my wife and travelled with another couple who also stayed at Maison Wat Kor. We were very impressed with their attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, clean and tidy, and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and its surrounds. The lush garden created a sense of relaxation and was well maintained. Staff were very attentive and pleasant.
This is a beautiful hotel with a lot more charm that the other luxury option along the lake shore. The cocktails and drinks were exceptional and the staff were more than happy to recommend great local restaurants to us too. The spa was sensational- professional treatments in a beautiful setting. I would definitely recommend.
Tugu Malang: "Tugu or not Tugu? Gu! And quickly!"
"If we had to give an example of what a dream hotel would be, well... the Tugu Malang would come in handy!
The crazy dreams of an art lover reside in this hotel where you feel at home very quickly. The decoration is just unbelievable, and would deserve a special edition of any decoration magazine. The deluxe room we had was very nice.
The staff is very friendly and efficient, even if you are not staying in a suite.
The cycling tour with John is perfect!
The complimentary tea + + is fab!
The swimming pool is great!
The guided tour is very interesting.
Go! You won't be disappointed!"
