Neeleshwar Hermitage: "Neeleshwar Hermitage offers a truly peaceful and luxurious stay in a beautiful setting""Neeleshwar Hermitage transpired to be the most beautiful, tranquil and restful place you could possibly imagine. On arrival, with the warmth of the greeting, the hectic world faded away and we relaxed into having time stand still. Ayurvedic massage, beautiful gardens, warm sea, the infinity pool...... and a superb chef all played their part in making it such a memorable experience. The cottages were delightful from the spacious bedroom to the open air bathroom. The hospitality, warmth and genuine charm of the staff was truly heartwarming. After a free consultation with the Ayurvedic doctor I went daily to the beautiful Ayurvedic spa - Priva, for massage and treatment with warm oils. What luxury and weeks later I am still feeling benefits."
Cabochon Hotel & Residence: "Charming Boutique Hotel"Fell in love with this hotel as soon as I arrived and had to sit in the magnificent library for a while to wait until my room was ready. This hotel reminded me of a smaller version of Raffles in Singapore. Great attention to detail, superb breakfast, friendly staff and spacious rooms. Loved the pool on top of the residence and had a great meal at the restaurant. Location is superb with close proximity to BTS and other excellent restaurants at Rain Hill.
Villa Song Saigon: "Wonderful! Keep Up The Great Work"Stunning boutique property in district 2 of the city yet feels and looks like you are far more rural. We stayed here twice and were given a very warm and typical Vietnamese welcome each time. Service was impeccable and attentive without being intrusive. All seemed to have a very genuine interest in how we were and what we had done each day. Great sized lovely pool for the number of guests accommodated, chilled to exactly the right temperature! To the rear of the hotel is a beautiful garden, bar and indoor/outdoor restaurant overlooking the river and across to the fields. Chilled music adds to the very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out by the river with a drink (or two) each evening! An excellent menu and wine list provide great choice and all of the food was beautifully presented and absolutely superb. The hotels speed boat provides a courtesy shuttle service between the hotel and centre of the city in just 15 minutes, far quicker than going by road! Exceptional service from a clearly dedicated, highly trained and competent team. Nothing is too much trouble. We hope to return soon...
bali jiwa: "Coming home""This was our second stay in Bali Jiwa Villa and it already felt like coming home. The surrounding is breathtaking, the staff so very warm and welcoming and villa full of beauty. We enjoyed every minute. You can easily go to Ubud for shopping or dinner. Most of the time we had dinner in the villa, which was lovingly prepaired and utterly delicious. We definitely will be back."
4 Rivers Floating Lodge: "Great Service!""This is an awesome place to go. Can't fault it at all. Definitely do the waterfall excursion as well for some more natural beauty. But besides all of that, I just wanted to say what amazing service the staff delivered. The resort manager is a man called Adonis, and he really did go above and beyond. I ended up dropping some red wine on my beige trousers during dinner and I was leaving the next day. I didn't have the time or the right washing materials to get the stain out. Adonis said he was doing his personal washing that evening and very kindly offered to wash my trousers for me too. He used some stain remover, some other washing stuff, gave it a good hand scrub, and even managed to get them completely dry for me to take back the next morning (stain free). This was not part of any laundry service and he personally did this as a favour...thank you Adonis! Really great service all round. An awesome experience and would highly recommend staying here."
David’s Kitchen: "Greeted by David himself!""We had the most wonderful dinner at David’s Kitchen and we were greeted by David, himself on our way into the restaurant! We chatted about our travel plans and where we were from and he said he would email us some restaurant recommendations for our next destination. As promised, the next day David followed up with a lovely email and what turned out to be excellent recommendations. As for our experience at DK, it was excellent all around! We ordered from the fixed menu which turned out to be a great plan. From appetizers to dessert, everything was superb. I can't recommend David's Kitchen enough. The hospitality and food will bring me back if I'm in the area again and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting!"
Locavore: "The food were bold, well executed, well thought of,""Initially I was just curious about this restaurant in Ubud that people and media were talking about, and decided to give it a try. I went there for lunch and tried their 7 dishes (which turned out to be almost 14 dishes in total!). The food were bold, well executed, well thought of, and full of passion and love. It is as if they are not being humble at all, they are making a statement, what coming out from the kitchen is not just usual dishes we eat every day, it is extraordinary. I saw all chefs are busy in the kitchen, and they are quite mobile as they make time to go to our table and explain about each and every dish. I believe this is something we don’t see often in similar restaurant in Bali, maybe in Singapore or Hong Kong, but Bali? I dont think so. Service team looks impeccable, they dress up casual yet very neat and they are very professional too. When it comes to the price, a restaurant this caliber could have charged arms and legs, but this one surprisingly worth the whole experience (it was 850k++/pax ) Having had a great, memorable and satisfying lunch in Locavore, Ubud, it has set for me a high standard of a posh lunch should be, and by far the best lunch I ever had in such a long time. So, if you plan to try them, make a booking at least 3 weeks in advance, if you are lucky."
Cheong Fatt Tze – Blue Mansion: "Exactly what I needed""After a hectic week in KL a stay at the Blue mansion was just what I needed. It has a magic atmosphere as if you step back in time the grounds themselves are perfect and the room I stayed in was amazing (Liang room). It was calm and relaxed during the day and I had the pool mainly to myself. The breakfast was yummy and service was always very helpful and accomodating. I also recommend highly to dine at the restaurant upstairs Indigo the room is equisite and food superb. It is a place that is probably more suited to couples without kids as it has that sort of vibe, so if you want a romantic get away I recommend a stay. I would love to return again with my husband in tow. Stayed January 2017, traveled solo"
Muang La Lodge: "Stay in Muanga Lodge in Laos"We especially appreciated this unexpected setting. As soon as you walk through the front door, the decor charming us with his care and the atmosphere that emerges: excellence, simplicity and luxury. the food is perfect, the lovely and authentic rooms and impeccable service. Above all, we were greeted by Mathilde Juglaret that delighted our stay by his kindness and professionalism.
Le Du Wine Bar & Restaurant: "Highlight Of Cuisine In Bangkok"This is an excellent restaurant, with beautifully executed Thai haute cuisine. And they are getting the press for their creativity and perfection, having just earned a rating as one of the Top 50 restaurants in Asia. We travel extensively, and seek spectacular food experiences. We were impressed with each dish in our evening, and further impressed with the very well done wine pairings. I’ve seen a few reviews on Trip Advisor criticizing the location and whatnot, but we found the experience and site to be beyond reproach. Highlights were many, but included the pandan cake dessert, the ant larvae course, the green chicken curry version that delighted with its inventiveness, and 2 starter courses, both of which set the tone for an international class dinner experience. We recommend this restaurant heartily, though note that this an international standard restaurant with international standard prices. All in, our dinner for 2 with wine pairings was about $200 (US). Excellent value, but well outside standard Bangkok pricing.
