The hotel is a small oasis of tranquility, beautiful rooms, great service, lovely beach and really attentive staff. The place is quite small and for a couple of days only 3 of the cottages were inhabited but even when 15 people were staying it was still calm and uncrowded. The pool is relatively large and there are plenty of beds there and in the garden. There is also a tailor on site and he copied a linen dress and a pair of linen trousers in less than a day perfectly
"We recently enjoyed an exceptional stay at the Tugu Bali with our family. Every element of our stay was outstanding starting with the most friendly staff. Always with a smile, going beyond to ensure our total satisfaction and understanding of this unique cultural hotel. We highly recommend the Tugu Bali, a very special place to stay ! "
"We stayed in April, trip with my mother. This hotel was a little further out but they were so great at helping to arrange transport and packages before we arrived: orang utans, bake national park etc. The hotel was small, simple, clean, the staff were friendly and very helpful, but what was most surprising was the food! It was delicious, perfectly prepared. A walk along the beautiful, wild beach is also definitely recommended. Not a swimming, crystal clear waters beach, but wild and gorgeous. I would recommend for a quiet getaway in a great location!"
his was the best pick! Everything was wonderful, the service, the breakfast, the dinners, the very friendly people. We highly recommend Jing's Residence. It is in the center of the ancient city of beautiful Pingyao, you get the feeling of living within the chinese community.
Locavore: "Amazing food perfect service"
As above amazing food & perfect service - perfectly matched flavours for every single dish! Obviously a lot of thought/research has gone into every dish
David’s Kitchen: "Dining Does Not Get Better Than At David’s Kitchen"
"Dining is not just eating food - it is an experience that should involve delicious food/drinks, gracious hospitality, a pleasing ambiance and the generation of plenty of memories to smile back on for years to come. My girlfriend and I had the dining experience of a lifetime last night at the new location of David's Kitchen - and this experience afforded us all of those things that I mentioned above at an unparalleled level! I had the very best tuna dish that I have ever had - highly recommended for if/when you make the brilliant decision to try David's Kitchen yourself. David was strolling around the very pleasant dining area while we ate and he spoke to us on a few different occasions as we enjoyed our meal. He is a very kind and interesting man that brings wonderful conversation to the table - pun intended. I had the pleasure of expressing my love for the tuna dish and he was gracious enough to invite us back into his kitchen to meet the head chef and the rest of the kitchen staff - this just took what was already an incredible evening to the kind of experience that my girlfriend and I will look back on for decades with nothing but smiles! And, to top it all off, the dining room manager brought my girlfriend a beautiful rose as we were walking into the parking lot to our taxi. It was like the evening couldn't stop getting better! So, there you have it. Some of the best food we have ever eaten. Certainly the best hospitality we have ever experienced at a restaurant. An ambiance that promotes a delightful meal. And memories that I will now have to cherish for the rest of my life. David's Kitchen provides the epitome of what dining should be. And, not to forget, at an EXTREMELY reasonable price! Nothing short of incredible. If you are EVER in Thailand - please, please do yourself and your traveling mates a huge favor and find time to make it into David's Kitchen! On my word - you will absolutely not regret it. Cheers!"
Locavore: "Best. Lunch. Ever"
"So glad someone suggested we go here while in Ubud (and also recommended we book ahead!!). Amazing, interesting dishes without being pretentious. Lots of local delicacies we had never heard of, but loved! We ordered the 5 course lunch, but in reality got about 12 courses of all these amazingly presented little bites. Book now."
"This is a beautiful, wonderful oasis. Every single detail has been thought through in this serene, beautiful place. It whispers luxury, but - as a welcome change - doesn't shout it. I want to package it all up, and take it home! We lived in China for many, many years, and being here felt like coming 'home', only better. The Rachamankha has the ambience of a very old Chinese courtyard home/hotel, but with the convenience of a new one. I thought it WAS old, but learned that it was built in only 2004! The ornamentation (spectacular screen doors, statuary in every courtyard) is all old, though. And stunningly beautiful. You will also see a smattering of gorgeous Thai antiques adorning the walls and public areas. Don't miss the library. Or the pool. Or the outdoor, covered 'lobby' lounge area. The only disappointing thing about this lovely spot is that you have to leave it to explore the many attractions of Chiang Mai. But they're all close, and you've got this oasis to return to at the end of your day. Oh, and (I almost forgot to mention, because it really goes without saying) the service is wonderful -- unobtrusive, attentive, and friendly. Sigh. We're checking out this morning..... Enjoy!"
I really enjoyed this trip, it was the most fun i ever had for such a long time. The staffs were amazing and so polite and the hotel in itself was a sight to be amazed by. I stayed in the hotel for 3 days but it was the best 72 hours i ever experienced. I really do hope to come again
"My wife and I stayed at the Kenanga for our honeymoon in Ubud. The place has a unique charm, and is very relaxing. The rice fields in front of the infinity pool and the restaurant are breath taking. The staff is so friendly and always smiling. They made sure that we were satisfied From the moment we arrived until we left. We would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Ubud. "
