Everything was just perfect. The food was amazing, with nice amuse-bouches. Service was good although a little too much attention for a business lunch. And of course the location by the lake and the attention to the decoration makes it all.
Cuisine Wat Damnak: "One of my top choice in Siem Reap"
"It is a must to visit Cuisine Wat Damnak during your stay in Siem Reap! The food was great, a mixture of local and french style. The atmosphere was stunning, we sat on the first floor and enjoyed our meal. We were supposed to sit near the window, enjoying the moonlight and clear sky in Siem Reap. The waiter helped us to change the seats while it suddenly started to rain and a few drops started coming from the roof top. We wanted to visit for our next trip in Siem Reap, sadly find out it's closed in coming April. Maybe the chef need to go for vocation as well."
"On arrival we were upgraded to a river view room. The rooms are wonderful. Decorated in local style. very comfortable beds. Bathroom huge with both shower and bath. Plenty of hot water. The restaurant fantastic. Meals a sheer delight for taste and presentation. The staff are so friendly and helpful. There is a bridge over the river and on the other side you will find the pool - wonderful setting then there is a viewing tower where you can enjoy a G&T as the sun goes down. As the lodge is situated high up it can get chilly in the evening. Fire boxes were put by your table. A hot water bottle in the bed and heaters in the room. The hotel provides trips. We went on a walking trip to a village and waterfall where we had our picnic lunch. We only stayed two nights. I suggest more nights are needed to enjoy other trips and the village, and also the grounds and delights of the lodge (own hot spring) Muang is definitely a hidden gem. Wifi very strong in reception Room Tip: All rooms would be wonderful"
Rachamankha: "Lovely Calm and Inviting"
We stayed three nights at the Rachamanhka and loved it. The room was spacious and we were by the lovely tranquil pool. It was so quiet we felt we were at our own private retreat. Paul the manager was most accommodating to our group and recommended the best restaurant which we were very grateful for. The entire staff was very welcoming
Flower Island: "Could have stayed forever"
What a wonderful stay we had on Flower Island! It was a bit of a trek to get there as we tried a cheaper option (hiring a bangka instead of opting for their speedboat which was quite pricey) but was a little adventure in itself and worth the effort once we arrived! Staff turned up on the beach to welcome us and we found out we were the only people staying on the island with 32 staff! Just an incredible experience. Beautiful cottage with a comfortable bed under a mosquito net. Hammock on our veranda. A lovely dining and bar area. Beautiful beach and free use of snorkelling equipment - we went out for a snorkel just off of the beach and saw loads of coral, fish and even a turtle! It's so dark and quiet at night and the stars are amazing!! The food was delicious - we are both quite picky eaters and could find something we really liked at each meal. The trip to the pearl farm was brilliant and so interesting. The staff were so attentive and friendly, they couldn't do enough for us. Wifi wasn't working when we were there and it was actually quiet nice for us to get away from that side of life for a while but I know might bother some people. Only drawback was that drinks were expensive for the Philippines, including water which is a little frustrating considering you are on an island and there isn't any other option of getting anything to drink. But the island really is paradise and what you pay isn't half of what the other off island resorts and is worth every penny. We were really sad to leave! Such an amazing experience to have our own private island for a few days!
I was a little apprehensive as we drove down a dirt road and stopped at an old building which was really dark inside. Everything was not old, but antique, and of the best taste. A real treasure trove! Our room was splendid, and we much enjoyed the huge copper bath with its rain shower. The common buildings are spectacular, too, and the decor in the bar is brilliant. The staff, though not ultra-efficient, could not have been more attentive, and the food was very good. Having said that, one has to accept that Lombok has limited resources and that supplies sometimes run out. Massages were excellent, and we took advantage of the outings on offer, which were very well organised. This is a wonderful place to relax.
"I stayed at 4 rivers three weeks ago but I can still remember how amazing the place is. It was a long drive but when you reached the 4th bridge which the reception is located you will be amazed by the surroundings . I'm typically not a nature lover but when the boat started to pass by the river surrounded by mountains it took my breath away :D When I arrived at the resort the staff and crew gave me a very warm welcome . The resort facilities are outstanding .You’ll get the chance to use the kayak and fishing rod for free. also love the library which has a good collection of books and even board games for kids and kids at heart . The manager (Adonis) is so approachable and very kind not only to the guest but also to his staff. 4 RIVERS is the PERFECT PLACE to unwind and be with nature :D Looking forward on coming back there sooonnnnnnn!!! :D"
Thank you so much to Paul and his fabulous team for 5 wonderful days at the Rachamankha. Tranquil,serene,relaxing, and a great way to re-charge your life batteries ! Nothing was ever too much trouble and we felt very at home. Quality F&B too at the restaurant. Trying to work out when I can get back there soon.

David’s Kitchen: "Excellent food, service and atmosphere."
I was visiting Chiang Mai for a short weekend and read about this restaurant online. Reservations were made easily online and followed up by email. The restaurant was easy to find but location change across the river. The restaurant is beautiful inside with a very cozy atmosphere. There was a live piano during my dinner, which was nice. David personally came and greeted every table. He stayed by my table for a bit because I was alone and made me feel at home. The food was exquisite. I had a raw salmon appetizer, lobster bisque, and lamb chops - all of which I would recommend. David suggested a restaurant for lunch the following day and sent me a very detailed and warm thank you email the following morning. Thank you David!
