Kenanga Hotel: "Stunning"We only had two nights in Ubud at the end of our two week Bali holiday but I wish we had longer at Kenanga. What a beautiful peaceful hotel. Amazing rooms, helpful staff and such a nice private location. Would highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Maison Polanka: "Make the Most of Cambodia"Fantastic accommodations in the heart of Seam Reap. Quaint, quite boutique hotel that catered to our every need including creating an itinerary to maximize our 3 days exploring the city. In addition to fantastic food, they have a wonderful, helpful staff that coordinated tour guides and set up a special tour of the Diamond Silk weaving farm. A must! The pool was the perfect refresher after hot temple tours!
The Island Lodge: "Une oasis de paix et de… Gentillesse"It's very accessible, but once there, it is happiness! The owners are absolutely adorable and attentive staff. A rare kind of envelope you. The place is beautiful. The spacious and comfortable rooms. We were told to guard against mosquitoes, it was useless. Even the mosquitoes are rare and those who cross you are safe ... even nice too. The benefits are high and the restaurant - French or Vietnamese food choice - excellent: top quality products carefully prepared. Here. Nothing to write otherwise: go for it.
Inle Princess Resort: "Beautiful hotel on the water"We absolutely loved our time at the Princess Beautiful and large room with a fire lit each night. Stunning view over the lake. Excellent spa treatments. Restaurant was rather disappointing as lacking atmosphere after 8pm. Definitely a 60+ resort Stay here or the Aureum
Sea Dance Resort: "A beautiful retreat – I want to go back!"We spent 6 nights at Sea Dance and I honestly could have stayed longer. We had a warm welcome and our deluxe bungalow was spotlessly clean and a good size. We had a quirky bathroom which was attached to the outside of the bungalow which we loved and again spotless. The staff were so welcoming and were all great to have a chat to. It was my birthday and they surprised me with a special breakfast and flowers in my room, its a touch like that you won't find in a bigger resort. The food was exceptional, buffet breakfast and plenty of choices for the evening. We enjoyed the beach too it was very peaceful. You can hire scooters near by to get around. The hotel also has live music, cocktail nights and buffets which were really nice too.
Amata Lanna: "Peaceful and beautiful"Absolute gem in the heart of Chiang Mai. Close to everything and yet removed and peaceful. Staff was exceptionally helpful (finding rides, giving restaurant recommendations, giving directions, etc), grounds and room were spotless, beds comfortable. I cannot say enough lovely things about this spot. Breakfast was fantastic and cost was just right! I would absolutely stay here again! Close to a number of great restaurants and the ever so popular night market. A winner all around!
Cabochon Hotel & Residence: "Fantastic!!!"The atmosphere was fantastic!! The staffs were very professional and nice. I loved the hotel so much I took so many pictures inside the building; the library space, the hallway, our rooms and the bathroom, and the view from our room!! I absolutely loved the coconut juice served right off a young coconut at check-in!!! We should've stayed at this hotel longer instead of a few nights at other hotels!
Muang La Lodge: "A surreal dream in the midst of rural Laos – and so child-friendly""We absolutely LOVED it! Room with river-view was wonderfully serene, the 5-course dinner was thoughtful and delicious (loved their vegetarian versions, so flexible!), and our hearts were warmed by the sincere care and support the whole team - from guard to managers - showed towards (us and) our almost 2-yr-old son. We can whole-heartedly recommend the hotel to other families with small children. Also, we were really astonished by the loving thoughtfulness which was put into every detail of our stay, starting with flowers and a hand-written note for our wedding anniversary and ending with an email to check if our flight really worked out...just amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We´ll come back! Stayed March 2017, traveled with family"
Arumdalu: "A hidden getaway that’s definitely worth a visit"The combination of the friendly hotel staff members, luxurious villa, private beach, excellent food exceeded all our expectations of the place. The beach was nice enough for us to skip the island hopping tours couldn't get enough of the cool breeze, turquoise waters and fine sand. Would suggest visitors to stay a night at belitung city to soak in what the town has to offer then proceed to Arumdalu. This will save you the hassle of travelling to and fro the resort and the main town area as its almost a 1.5hr drive each way.
Poring Hot Spring Nature Reserve: "A variety of activities, available in one place"We visited on a weekday - a previous review says the tubs are empty. Yes, they were, but that is so as not to waste water. The taps (one hot spring water tap, one cold water) are there for you to fill at your leisure. We clambered up to the Canopy Walk - it's a bit of a hike, but well worth the effort! Also visited the serene and informative butterfly garden and information centre. My husband and I sat in the pool at the base of Kipungit Waterfall, while our daughters trekked off to see the bat cave. I was surprised by 'sucker' fish, nibbling at my toes - you know, the ones you pay for in the 'fish massage' places? And I got mine for free! There are also sites for a rafflesia garden (world' largest flower), and an orchid site. I think this place is underrated, and offers so much for someone who has a morning / day to spare
