Maduzi Hotel: "Oasis in busy Bangkok"

Review by: alexander_skora | Source: Trip Advisor
"Had an enormously big beautifully designed suite and an amazing stay at this peaceful place in the middle of mad Bangkok. Hotel has been designed with a good feeling for space and feng shui and even though it is a few years old, it is an intimate and personal place and feels, like you are staying at someone's private palace. Nice restaurants just around the corner, very close to BTS via Exchange Tower and there is parking for about 20 cars within the walls of the property, which is very unusual for Bangkok I believe. Next time in Bangkok we will be happy to stay here again. Thank you for everybody from the staff, who made our stay very special!"

Arumdalu: "Family Vacation"

Review by: Hertin R | Source: Trip Advisor
"Overall, I think the resort was spot on. It had everything a family who enjoys traveling needs. Massive rooms that can fit up to around 5 people, though you need to have additional beds that can be provided by the resort. I can say this as I travelled with a huge family of 23. Not only the rooms, the culinary served there was also spectacular though it takes a while to prepare. It has it's own flavor and really has it's speciality for each meal. Though the food looks relatively small, it really changes your mind when you finish it as it makes your stomach full. The activities are also very enjoyable and most of them can be done by everyone. The resort provides kayaks, that can be used in the secluded beach, there are bicycles that can be used to ride along the road heading to a spot to hike, Batu Baginda. Though the route can be challenging for some people, once you reach the spot you can really enjoy the view and the whole trip was worth it. It takes around 2 hours to get there and back. (these activities needs an extra cost) It was late December when me and my family went there so luckily, they gave us a great new year experience by the beach. They had tents prepared for us and there were music to accompany us. But the best part of the event were the fireworks, they were spectacular as they were endless and massive."

tugu bali: "Staying in the middle of art and culture"

Review by: Kristjan K | Source:
"We were travelling with three small kids (3,5,7) and Tugu hotel in Canggu was our last stop in Bali after staying in Intercontinental Jimbaran and the villas in Ubud and Lovina. We were looking for something different than the large chain hotels and Tugu hotel turned out to be just the right place. The hotel does not belong to the Small Luxury Hotels, Relais&Chateaux (they do not have any hotels in Indonesia yet?) or Boutique Hotels, so we found it kind of accidentally as our friends had recommended to stay in Canggu area and hotel Tugu is #1 in Canggu. The hotel could easily fit into the quality standards of the small luxury hotels. Although the hotel has a pool, this is not the reason to come to this hotel. There are hotels with bigger and better pools. Tugu hotel is for the guests who love architecture, art and culture, who are excited about original interior design and high quality antiquities and handicraft surrounding at every step: in the room, in the garden and literally everywhere. The service was perfect even on the background of the Balinese being in general polite and friendly. I would like to give special thank you to Pande Dwipa for an excursion in the facilities: Tugu hotel is an exquisite art museum and hotel in one. I can only admire the vision of the hotel owner Anhar Setjadibrata, to share the art he has collected with the guests in his hotels. Tugu hotel is definitely ""worth a detour"", to use a Michelin term. "

The Island Lodge: "A SMALL PARADIS"

Review by: directionHGV, | Source: Trip Advisor
It was the end of our trip and we did not have much time. Nevertheless, we wanted to see the Mekong Delta. After some Internet research, I wanted to come to this lodge. In addition, it was not too far from HCMC. They sent a car. When you arrive, you wonder where you are. And you discover the lodge: an incredible location along the Mekong (private jetty), an incredible design with beautiful objects everywhere. gorgeous room with a view ... wonderful, warm pool. Attentive staff. Kitchen (in Vietnamese or French choice) delicious. We did a fantastic treatment at Spa. There are lots of activities on offer. We opted for the tour of the island next to bicycle and boat. It was beautiful and enjoyable. Anyway, congratulations to Michel and Françoise have created this little corner of dreams where everything is perfect, for which we have only one regret: not to stay longer. Thank you all for having contributed to the excellence of our trip. Helene and Jean-Michel Verdon

Mrauk U Princess Resort: "Принцесса Араканского царства"

Review by: Natalia B | Source: Trip Advisor
"Из Ситтве, до которого надо лететь на самолёте воспользуйтесь либо предложением отеля : доехать на лодке с включёнными напитками и едой либо наймите скоростную моторную лодку, так как сьэкономите часа 3 . Приплыв в Мраук-У - столицу древнего Араканского царства Вы не пожалеете в любом случае о потраченном времени на дорогу. Древность, этническая самобытность и красота этих мест потрясает. За такими впечатлениями люди гоняются по всему миру!!! А остановиться нужно без сомнения в MRAUK OO PRINCESS Resort. Почему ? Этот отель, несмотря на его роскошь, не сделает Вас ,,белыми колонизатором"", отделив Ваш мир от внешнего , а гостеприимно погрузит в волшебную атмосферу Араканского царства. Хотела бы вернуться сюда ещё Stayed March 2017, traveled with family"

The Island Lodge: "Magic on the Mekong"

Review by: Paul M | Source: Trip Advisor
What a surprise, much better than it shows on its website and booking search engines. A touch of casual elegance right on the river. French influences everywhere as you'd expect with French owners, very classy open air restaurant and lounge area facing the pool and river on one side and the garden and villas on the other. Rooms above are bright, airy and extremely pleasant. The food is great, although mostly western style. There's lots to do - cycling and boat trips, visits to local markets etc. Only two hours drive from HCMC (the hotel will arrange a car) it's a great escape from the city - a must visit for people seeking respite from the big smoke.

The Island Lodge: "The Reason to Visit the Mekong Delta"

Review by: J-N_Travelers | Source: Trip Advisor
This is a beautiful property with amazing staff and service! The room was very clean, modern and spacious. The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding, the spa was great, and the property pristine. The owner, Michel, reached out to us directly after we made our reservation and offered transfers from Ho Chi Minh City and back at a reasonable price, which made logistics easy. Michel and his wife, Francoise, also greeted us upon arrival, adding a nice personal touch to our stay. We highly recommend taking advantage of some of the activities offered by the Island Lodge - we did the Seven Bridges Bicycle Tour and it was one of the highlights of our visit to Vietnam. But stay away from My Tho proper, the city really has nothing to offer; just enjoy the lodge, the island, and the river instead. If you are traveling to the Mekong delta, I cannot imagine a better place to stay than the Island Lodge - simply amazing.
