Cheong Fatt Tze – Blue Mansion: "A hidden gem in the heart of George Town""It felt like being a part of Penang's living history, a real privilege to stay here. The tour of property on the afternoon I arrived was taken by one of the owners, got some really great insights in to the collection and local history. The owners and staff are doing a wonderful job keeping this collection and property alive for future generations Stayed January 2017, traveled solo"
The Apsara Rive Droite: "Wonderful hotel with first-class service from friendly staff""Everything about the Aspara Rive Droitte is just right. Mr Ai and Mr Hann (the management team) and Mr Ivan (the owner) went out of their way to make our stay wonderful and all the other staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, with the hotel's dedicated Aspara Queen taking 60 seconds to cross the Nam Khan and deliver you to the heart of Luang Prabang - and, conversely, escape to the more serene side of the Nam Khan. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, and breakfast wonderful. The pool is a welcome relief from the heat of Laos, with the bar just a few steps away. After 5 days at this home-from-home, we were sad to leave. We hope to go back"
Bassac Cruises: "Fascinating and beautiful cruise"This is such a great way to explore the Mekong Delta. The boat gives a comfortable experience as you sail by fabulous scenery , observing families and enjoying delicious food. Our guide , An, was a delight. She shared with us how people live in the Delta villages including first hand experiences and such interesting information. Visit to rice factory and floating market great!
Chakrabongse Villas: "A real oasis – beautiful and worth every cent""Chakrabongse Villas is a really luxurious boutique hotel. We were guests here for 3 nights in April, and we wanted for nothing. We were offered a welcome cocktail when we arrived late in the evening, and our villa was traditional Thai style, and it was well appointed, clean and cool. We had a lovely private balcony overlooking the garden, with fresh flowers, pool towels, daybeds and shade aplenty. Having large villas, lovely gardens and only a handful of villas, we hardly ever saw another guest! We enjoyed the pool and the activity on the river, which we were on the banks of. Grounds are very private, with locked gates. Staff are unobtrusive but efficient, and the clamour, heat and bustle of Bangkok stops at the gates, and you enter a true oasis of calm and luxury. The riverside restaurant is also lovely and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast there each morning, with exquisite service, lovely food, and tourism advice as required. We took their longtail boat tour through the canals one afternoon, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was reasonably priced, too. One night we ate at the restaurant for dinner, and really, we were treated like royalty. A treat for the soul, and lovely, simple set menu, deliciously prepared. It was my husband's birthday one day, and they gave him a lovely gift. Add all of this together, and you have an exemplary service provider. Expensive but as i say, well worth it. Congratulations Chakrabongse crew, keep up the good work! Stayed April 2017, traveled as a couple"
David’s Kitchen: "Personalized service and excellent food"My wife and I were able to dine here for my birthday. We enjoyed excellent personalized service during our entire visit. The staff used our names several times during service and the food was excellent. Some of the highlights were the pumpkin soup, rack of lamb, and chocolate souffle. David personally stopped by our table multiple times during the meal to check in with us and chat a bit. With a full restaurant we could tell that David really cared about the people in his restaurant and created a sense of eating at a friends house...if your friend has amazing food!
Inle Princess Resort: "Wish we could have stayed longer"The leg rowers skillfully guide your long boat into the dock and you are then transported to serene peaceful surroundings. We were welcomed by the local Burmese cats in the lobby. Magnificent creatures and very friendly. Our mountain view room was everything you could want, right down to the free mini bar. The property is gorgeous, the meals in the restaurant are delicious. Unique breakfast additions on the complimentary buffet. We sat on the decking gazing over the water and watched the sunset which was beautiful. Our next day we indulged in massages by two skillful young ladies which were heaven. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone. The only regret we had was not being able to stay a couple more days to really relax and enjoy it.
Rachamankha: "Beautiful hotel"Aesthetically pleasing hotel with beautiful furniture and good location. Clean and old Thai style rooms, with a deco touch. My only complaint would be the staff attitude was a bit off occasionally. Also the bar the first night said they could serve us but we couldn't drink there, so we sat by the pool with the mozzies. The second night we came back for a night cap a little earlier than the first night and the bar was again closed at 10. I saw a few couples on both occasions wandering around obviously looking to have a drink and chill before bed.
SEEDS Restaurant & Lounge: "After dinner time..""Few weeks ago I tried the lunch set menu Of course so delicious and for a good value On day time we enjoyed this beautiful Inya lake view and peaceful ambiance The food was so tasty, well presented Service super Nice What Else ??!! seeds still to be the best restaurant in Town"
tugu lombok: "A little bit of paradise”""We have just had a 4 night break at this lovely Hotel. It has all of the wow factors and the staff treated us like royalty. It is a wonderful place to have a peaceful break away from the stress of work or city life and highly recommended. A word of warning about travelling to Lombok. Try and get a direct flight. We travelled from Singapore via Jakarta and had to change terminals which was a nightmare. We were given conflicting information about baggage and terminal numbers, which was all very stressful. "
Golden Buddha Beach Resort: "Wonderful family holiday"We stayed here for 11 days with 2 small children in April 2017 and were the last to leave before they closed for monsoon season. We were really worried about the weather at this time of year but it was beautiful and couldnt have been more perfect. This is a very private, unspoilt place to enjoy a family holiday. The food was fantastic, and a really good effort was made by the kitchen to keep the menu varied throughout our stay. The little pizza bar run by Gai down at the beach was great too. Massi and the team were outstanding, we really felt like we were in our own private island paradise. We stayed in Metha, which was wonderful.
