What a fantastic place! The location on the lake is just amazing. Great food and very good service. My favorite Restaurant in Yangon!
Bassac Cruises: "Not too big, not too small, just right for couples – highly recommend"
My wife & I were running out of time and only did a 2 day/1 night but we were glad we did the Bassac Mekong Cruise (we were on Bassac II) . BestPriceTravel organised a lovely guide Annie and we were so very pleased with the boat quality, the crew service and Annie's informative talks (Annie spent college years in Melbourne - so a good english speaker). The boat looks older but inside it is very modern and although the rooms are small, these are more than enough for a 1 or 2 day cruise as ideally, you will be up on deck watching the interesting Mekong river activities, waiting for an excellent dinner. We stopped of in a village, did a floating markets and a land market and a couple of candy factories. I'd taken several pens and paper 'packs' in ziplock waterproof bags to distribute to young ones and Annie help pick a some candidates that were less fortunate and even convinced the guy driving the boat to pull alongside a floating market trader - the smiles from the children and their mums were worth all the effort of taking and giving. We had based ourselves in Saigon and although the drive to and from the Mekong was a few hours each way the journey was worth it. Great food, educational, and some really interesting sights.
"The most important thing for travellers to know is that District 2 is a fair ways from the centre of HCMC. However, the free shuttle boat ride along the river to the central docks was one of the highlights of staying at Villa Song. On the way back (the last return boat is around 7pm) you can easily hail an Uber for less than $10USD. When we first checked in, we were given room 101 which was small and dark. After speaking with the front desk, we were quickly moved to a room on the 3rd floor that was much bigger and full of light without any questions asked. That generally sums up the service: excellent. The included breakfast is also a real highlight, although recommend waking up early as it gets very hot by 9am. The hotel can also help organize boat trips to the Chu Chi tunnels with La Reve where the boat picks you up right from the hotel. Room Tip: Nothing on the 1st floor"
it would be very hard to fault this "dream come true", the inspired design is beautifully finished and full of wonderfully enchanting details, from the magical library of olde-world books in the restaurant/lounge to the Smith Corona typewriter in our room obviously a lot of love has been lavished on this Reverie. We are staying here as i write and will extend our visit to soak up the refreshingly relaxing ambiance. Town is just a few minutes away and a free shuttle is provided until late but it is hard to leave when the kitchen keeps dishing up such quality serves by a complement of staff who will cater your every whim and engage you with sweet pleasure. Absolutely Awesome !!
You want a piece of heaven, people say head to Goa. You want a piece of heaven, a place to call your own for few days, head to Summertime in Goa. For me, it was love at first sight. It is tucked in one of the by lanes of Calangute, away from the noise, has a small sprawling drive up to the main house and a private swimming pool to boast. It is built like a Balinese villa, is open, spacious and is extremely welcoming. It has an in house kitchen and a few hours’ notice the help can whip up delicious and scrumptious food. We had biryani, eggs and cold coffee. Yum!! It is close hustle and the bustle and yet offers peace and serenity which is so essential. The hidden and the real gem are the books shelves. They even have books in the chairs. And don’t miss the delightful and fun conversation with the owners. You just wouldn’t wanna leave
Le Calao: "Great food, great view!"

The Samar: "Perfect gateway to the temples, with the personal touch"
"I came to Siem Reap for a mix between work and leisure and Samar Villa was the perfect fit. First, as I saw in many reviews, Bertrand and his team are always very attentive to our every need. They helped us organize various functions: from meals in unique restaurants, to temples visits and surprising platform rental with full service on Tonle Sap. We and our clients left absolutely delighted by our stay. Apart from this wonderful service, the villa itself is remarkable. The owners have impeccable taste and a beautiful collection of antiques throughout the public areas and rooms. My suite was spacious and homey and spotless, like I've rarely seen. Breakfast and the food in general were very good and generous. All in all, I highly recommend it and look forward to a 2nd visit."
The location and setting of this hotel is incredible. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. The outdoor bathroom and shower is GREAT! We stayed for 5 nights and throughout received excellent service from the very friendly and attentive staff. The breakfast is gorgeous and there is plenty of choice. You can either have indian or western breakfast - both delicious. Dinner in the restaurant is beautiful. Had some of the best food I have eaten in India. The chef and waiters are friendly and helpful. So much so the chef even offered to cook a special meal for us on our last night. Incredible!
