Bali Jiwa Villa: "Pure Relaxation & Satisfaction"
I stayed in Bali Jiwa Villa in May 2015. I know already some places in Bali but this villa is extraordinary. You stay in a place inside the nature, surrounded from lush rice paddies with the panoramic view of Mount Batukaru and stunning sunset. The service of the lovely staff in this villa fulfilled every wish I had. I was served a delicious breakfast and dinner. Also lunch you can get there. Each villa has a private pool, bordering the rice fields...a fantastic atmosphere! I will definitively come back to this place :-D.
Tugu Bali: "Unexpected elegance"
Surrounded by antiques from all over Asia, Tugu Canggu was a haven of casual elegance, great dining and easy access to beaches, surfing and shopping. The manager, Jenny, was especially helpful in guiding us to our surroundings and anticipating our needs. The rest of the staff were warm, thoughtful and delightfully pleasant.
"This property is magical. It is a small boutique property offering outstanding service. While the English of some of the staff is limited, Rafael or one of his assistants is always there to make sure you have what you need and to make sure you have an outstanding experience. The guide Rafael arranged for our trip to visit surrounding villages was the best of our Lao trip. The breakfast and dinner were both top notch. Innovative, high quality really good food. The hotel also offers a hot spring, spa and private island with swimming pool. Stayed January 2017, traveled as a couple"
The Island Lodge: "A piece of the French Riviera in the Mekong Delta"
Michel and Francoise have created a beautiful boutique resort on the banks of the Mekong river surrounded by an island filled with fruit trees, smallholdings and trails. Food is excellent, rooms are excellent, service is excellent, the ambience is romantic and decadent. Wonderful freshly made French pastries are available for breakfast if you wish. This is a very classy place indeed with lovely gardens and a swimming pool perfect for cooling off from the steamy heat. If you're the active type (we are) then there are cycle and boat tours available from the hotel, if not then lie back and watch the ebb and flow of the river...
Staff is great !! Stayed here with my sister who uses a wheelchair. From the moment I inquired about accesability, they helped us with solutions for possible difficulties. The resort is small, with lovely cottages, a nice pool area and a pleasant restaurant. The food is another big plus ! Fresh products from their own garden. It's very quiet and not far from Chaweng or Bophut. Would definately stay here again.
"Very nice ambience and staff. The food is good (very different) but you expect this difference when you are going to a restaurant that specializes in local food that is not from your country. The only thing I didn't like about this place is that I told them about my ginger allergy before going and until we were there they told me that I could not have almost half of the menu that they prepared and only gave me the option to eat from the vegetarian menu. I told them that i really wanted something with fish and they tell me that they couldn't. Every restaurant that we've been in Asia had given me the option to make similar dishes to the ones in the menu and just without ginger or they even made different sauces and had them before we came in. Besides this, Locavore is a nice and different experience while visiting Ubud. The cocktails were great!"
"We got ill on our way to this hotel so we weren't in good shape when we arrived, and we spent our two nights here recovering. It was a great place to do this - the room was beautiful and enormously comfortable and it was all very peaceful and quiet. The staff were very kind and attentive and we are very grateful to them. This is the kind of place that many (British) people would think was heaven - on the sea, very quiet, a little bubble of perfect bliss - a kind of honeymoon place. If this is what you like, the place should have six stars. But we aren't so fond of that kind of place - we prefer staying in places with domestic as well as foreign tourists and which are a little bit more lively. In summary, the property promises peace and quiet and that's what it delivers in spades - it's our problem and not the hotel's that it's not entirely our thing. Stayed January 2017, traveled as a couple"
Rachamankha: "small and cosy boutique hotel close to the city"
Rachamanka, part of secret retreats, is a very special place in Chiang Mai. You are close to many attractions, but in the moment you 'll pass trough the door you are in a peaceful oasis. The whole hotel is decorated with antics and artworks of the regions. Everything is very tastful and well chosen. The staff is nice and obliging. The pool is a nice place to spend the hot time of the day. The library has many interessting books about Chiang Mai and the entire region and culture. breakfast is served in a cosy courtyard and there is also a small bar for a drink in the evening. We have not eaten in the hotel, so we cannot say anything about the food, breakfast was delicouse and offered a great choice.
Manda De Laos: "Wonderful Location and Cuisine"
"Laotian cuisine is generally nice. I appreciate the taste and variety. But in Manda de Laos, the food taste great add it with amazing presentation. Most recommended dishes are Mok Pa (local fish dish), and Phed Makham (their signature duck dish)! Everything we ordered from starters to dessert are just great. The location is very serene overlooking lily ponds. Just lovely and relaxing."
