Inle Heritage hotel is one of the best boutique hotels in Myanmar. Not only offers superb accommodation (only six stilt bungalows for the guests) in a beautiful environment, but the owner offers every year free courses related to tourism industry to Burmese students from the area. The stuff was sweet and helpful , most of them graduates from hotel's academy. They also produce their own vegetables which they use in the restaurant. By staying here, you also contribute to local community. Highly recommended!
Villa Song Saigon: "Simply the best place we’ve stayed in all our travels!"
A remarkable place. Beautiful rooms,amazing friendly ,helpful staff. An excellent restaurant. A shuttle is provided to take you into Ho Chi Minh and they will also pick you up. They can advise you on tours and organise as well.
Nimmu House: "Charming and excellent"
"We stayed fro one night in a tent which was extremely comfortable. The food was also good and the entire property has great ambiance and style.
The room was a little noisy in the morning because its in a village and you can't really sleep in late which is also fine in ladakh. The garden and the courtyards are great to sit and relax in.
Would recommend this property for sure for a few nights at least. Wonderful experience overall."
"Just returned from my sixth visit and again it was just perfect. This probably explains why 10 out of 15 bungalows were occupied by repeat visitors. The surroundings are beautiful.
The rooms are well appointed.
The housekeeping is first class.
The Spa experience is focussed on you.
The complimentary yoga is a great start to any day.
The food is memorable. But it's the people who really make it just perfect. They are friendly, caring, pleased that you have chosen to visit them and totally focused on making everyone's visit perfect. Thank you."
We booked a two-bedroom bungalow and the views of both the sunrise and sunset were amazing. Surrounded by farms, we practically had the retreat to ourselves as it was the low season. The retreat is eco-friendly and offers a range of spa and massage services. Total relaxation, perfect climate and a great place to lounge around the pool. We will definitely re-visit and stay longer.
MesaStila: "A Piece of Heave"
"I have been here several times, mainly because I just LOVE the souvenir store they have - I have never left there without buying something. Items they sell seem to be handpicked wisely. I've also gone there just to take breathtaking photos. I've gone there just for a drink of coffee; I've gone there for meals. But recently my husband and I finally decided to overnight there. One night was not enough. Now planning at least a 2 night stay there next month. The coffee plantation tour is a must! "
"You have to go to believe how unique it is . The speed boat to downtown Saigon was the icing on the gateau. We arrived mid morning and were offered complimentary breakfast . Our rooms were most exciting . I shall never forget Villa Song . "
Maduzi Hotel: "Great hotel and very convenient location"
"Summary - great hotel, we were upgraded to a suite as booked through SLH, which was wonderful. Pros
-Lovely hotel, suite was huge and bathroom was massive.
-Very sleek minimalist decor.
-Coffee machine, that made cappuccinos!
-Snacks provided daily including drinks, chips, etc. A nice touch. We kept nipping into the nearby 7 11 for beers, water and additional stacks.
-Great breakfast, although this was only included due to SLH booking. If it is not included it is a little pricey.
-Very convenient location to access the rail transport.
-Loads and loads of restaurants within walking distance. Cons
-We had constant issues with the toilet. It was one of those poorly designed American ones, which tend to block ridiculously easily. However, the staff were great about dealing with the issue on multiple occasions."
"The stay was actually in December 2016, so this review is very long overdue. The five of us booked two villas, and since we were the only guests during our stay, it felt like we rented the whole property. The property is quite secluded, which makes it the perfect location to just get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax a bit. Get closer to nature, join a yoga session or two, and there's even a rigorous jungle gym trained by a marathoner for the more active guests. Service was great, everything was meticulously prepared with great care by the staffs. When we left, almost everyone (including the management) came out to bid us farewell. Almost makes us not want to leave. One other thing worth noticing is the jamu (javanese herbal concoctions), which are freshly made every morning during breakfast. I'm not usually a jamu person, but I partake quite a lot (almost every kind) that's available."
Mathis Retreat: "Excellent Rice Paddy Retreat – With the Family"
"We were looking for a secluded spot near Ubud, but not in the heart of the action and that was good for families. We have two small children (infant and 2 year old). The Matthis retreat was perfect for us. It was a quick taxi ride to downtown Ubud OR a long walk. The rooms were excellent for 3 adults and two young children. Pool was nice a cool and deep! My daughter loved to walk out along the rice paddy's and look at the ducks! Room Tip: Our room did not have a view, but there was a section that did."
