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.
Great location, great service and a really nice,quaint hotel room. The people are very attentive, When we arrived they took plenty of time to be sure we were comfortable and settled. They set us up with a tour of the floating markets and the best cycle tour of the Mekong Delta area. The bike tour was one of the highlights of our Vietnam trip,
The Twelve Hotel: "Nice quiet hotel with reception at the top"
A nice hotel located in a quiet residential area of Bangkok. Few rooms (ten, only 6 were open during our visit), junior nice very spacious and bright with views of the pool. The reception is great, either by the owners or other employees, plus help organize our daily outings: tuktuk reservation, restaurant recommendations. Very good breakfast. The hotel is located a bit far to walk to public transport (and almost no sidewalk lend itself to long walks especially in our case with a small child), but some supermarkets and restot good practices within 10 min, and 40 baht (€ 1) a tuktuk takes you to the nearest BTS station or water taxi. We would definitely return if we have the chance to return!
Tugu Bali: "Privileged Experience – this is not a hotel, this is a magnificent passion"
I have just returned from a magnificent adventure at Hotel Tugu. I relucantly handed the GM my sword room key as she waved me out the door. I'm not sure what to say, I have travelled to Bali with my grandparents since I was a kid in the 70's and for me the hotel bought back all those fond memories. Tugu is for connecting to the real Bali and I felt privileged to be able to experience it. This is a not a hotel, this is a special place, built by a special man and run by special people. Architecture, culture and history preserved. I felt like I was leaving my second home..... I cannot thank you all enough.
Wow! I don't even know where to start! It was the lap of luxury. It oozed style, chic and elegance. The large French colonial style fans in the rooms and hallways created a wonderful atmosphere. Our room was large and stylish. The swimming pool area was immaculately clean and well attended with constant supplies of ice water. The breakfast was absolutely exceptional. We were looked after by Freddie who put a lot of effort and personal touch into serving us. Regular speed boat free shuttle into the city centre means you are just minutes from the buzz of Ho Chi Minh. I would definitely recommend this hotel
Having read the reviews, we were not looking forward to the road transfer from the airport up to Glenburn but it really wasn't too bad at all and definitely worth it. We were warmly greeted by Will & Faye and they continued to look after us very well during our 4 night stay. We enjoyed the communal meals and we met some very interesting guests. The location was perfect, amazing views and our room lovely. The food was good and every effort was made to accommodate special requests (we had scones and specially made Portuguese tarts) We did a couple of the escorted walks which we really enjoyed. We also took much advantage of the free laundry service! A faboulous property and we had a wonderful time.
Tugu Bali: "Dinner with friends"
his hotel is really worth a visit just for the decor alone. It is a stunning building which is furnished with Indonesian antiques. We sat in the comfortable lounge area for drinks before dinner. The menu had a wide range of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. They were served with complimentary nuts and krupuk. We moved to one of the several separate dining areas for our dinner. We shared Martabak for entree, although unlike street Martabak is was delicious. I had Nasi Goreng and my husband had Nasi Campur. Our friends had a salad and curry. All meals were served promptly and together. My husband who often orders the Campur said it was the best he had eaten. The other meals were also very tasty.
We really enjoyed staying at this resort. We slept at Maison Ulysse and I really enjoyed the interior and . The resort has a lot of details and it very well looked after. It is hard to communicate with the staff as they hardly speak any English. But Bryan (the manager) is most of the time present to help and give you tipps. Due to the fact that this resort is very small, it has a familiar atmosphere which we enjoyed. We also felt very safe, never looked our hut
MesaStila: "Impressive Resort in Central Java"
"I stay here with my wife for 3D2N and it's not enough. Mesastila offers a wonderful wellness experience. This resort surrounded by mountains and panoramic view. It's all a natural comfort experience. We stayed in Arum Villa. A very traditional Javanese house with brilliant balcony view where we can see 4 mountains ahead. This spacy villa offers comfortable bed and furnishing (in traditional way), nice bathtub, and fast wi-fi just in case I need to do some of my work in the balcony with mountain view. Don't forget to try it's Hammam Spa, enjoy the sunset along with their afternoon tea & snack, plantation tour, and delicious food. It's a very recommended resort and I definitely will come back here."
Villa Mathis: "Chris and the Staff is the reason to stay here"
"We stayed over new years, my wife, our two young kids, and myself. The villa was very nice and clean. The pool and grounds were great. Food is nice. But the main reason this trip out of many to Bali was great, was because of Chris and his staff. They went so far and beyond what is normal. We had so much going on at the time, and we asked and leveraged Chris for so much more than we normally do. He was great, patient and very accommodating. We can't say enough nice things about him and his team. Thanks guys!!!"
