Sandat Glamping Tents: "Beautiful spot, very peaceful and private""Loved Glamping! We stayed in the Penjor tent, next to the amazing rice fields, it was nice as you only had one tent on the right hand side and would wake up to the view of rice fields. Staff are great and helpful, we had dinner next to the private pool and massages each day. We found 3 nights was a perfect amount of time to stay and take everything in. The shuttle into Ubud is also wonderful and easy."
Cheong Fatt Tze – Blue Mansion: "Back to the past""As i thought it was one of my most beautiful few days what i spent in a historical mansion!! Those indigo blue walls and the whole spirit of the hotel it's just amazing!! Perfect choices of breakfast...nice athmospheric restaurant with french taste of kitchen!! A kind of feeling if you 'd stay in a museum! Highly recommended to those who likes history and beauty!"
tugu bali: "Excellent service and homely feel""Absolutely fantastic service. I have never experienced more genuine and attentive service from our arrival to departure. Simply flawless. Love the maze like garden with canals and fishes. Rooms are good a bit run down, but all is made up by the fantastic staff! Well worth a visit!! World class service in a stunning surrounding. "
Tugu Malang: "Just for dinner, but fantastic place"We came upon the restaurant of Hotel Tugu by accident, but I'm very happy we had dinner here. The food was of good quality, even by European standards. The prices were quite high for Indonesian standards, but it was definitely worth it. Service was good, though a tiny bit slow sometimes, and the surroundings were stunning. If you're not planning to stay in this hotel, it's absolutely worth it to visit just to look at its interior and/or have a bite of properly prepared Western cuisine.
SEEDS Restaurant & Lounge: "Amazing place, Amazing food, Amazing service""Its all about the love. You feel it right when you walk in the door. This place is unique. There is a special vibe, witch makes you feel a mix between, right at home, and at a relaxing beautiful spa. The food is so good, every little bite is perfect. If you are ever in Yangon, this is a must visit. Thank you for your kindness, at our visit."
Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge: "An amazing experience..""Firstly, my apologies, as my review comes in very late. We travelled as a family of 5 and had planned a one-night stay at Tiger Mountain in late March. The moment we stepped into the lodge, its location took our breath away. Looking down at the valley below and the clouds in the distance, my family was instantly taken with the property. I, of course, had ulterior motives, Tiger Mountain is renowned to be one of the best birding destinations in Nepal. We were welcomed very warmly by Jhalak, the property's customer service manager who gave us a complete overview of the property. We had arrived at lunchtime, so after taking our lunch (all freshly made, the highlight of which was the tomato chutney), we retired to our rooms where the view was equally marvelous if not more. (...)As my family had some specific food requirements, the hotel stage were kind enough us to whip us something when the regular meal choices didn't make sense. At night once the weather had settled, Hari brought me out to listen to the haunting call of the Mountain Scops Owl, and since I had a flashlight, he said I could try my luck to catch the eye shine of a wandering yellow-throated marten (no luck there!). Next morning, I was up again to go with Hari, and after a quick clouded view of the Himalayas, we were off. We saw many more species, including the Khaleej pheasant scurrying away from the owner's bungalow into the forest. Truly a birder's paradise this. Jhalak and all the other staff ensured throughout our stay that we were well looked after (Jhalak, I did mention you to Jitudai at Chitwan, he beamed brightly when he heard yours and Hari's name). All in all, a wonderful stay, cozy, relaxing and for an amateur birder, downright enjoyable :) "
tugu malang: "Quite charming and well worth a visit"This is a lovely little bijou hotel, filled with Indonesian and Chinese antiques and art, conveniently situated right in the heart of the old town facing a pleasant open square. The architecture, like the rest of the hotel, is slightly idiosyncratic and charmingly individual, which differentiates it from the usual run-of-the-mill ‘international’ hotels. The staff in reception, housekeeping and the restaurant are exceptionally efficient and helpful in a relaxed, friendly way. The restaurant has a wide selection of cuisine – Indonesian, Chinese and international – which often spells trouble, because it is difficult to keep such a range of ingredients fresh. However everything we ate in a week-long stay was fresh, delicious and cooked to a every high standard. If you visit Malang, I would definitely recommend this as a most enjoyable place to stay.
Dewakan: "A star on the fine dining stage of Malaysia"Let me go straight to the point. We went here mid October and tried Dewakan's 17 course menu, one regular and one vegetarian (available upon request when you make your reservation). They dealt with the vegetarian request so, so well. The kitchen created completely new dishes that they'd never had on the menu before - razor clams, squid, red snapper, mushroom tarts, you name it. All presented and explained really well. Lots of delicious courses on both menus. The highlights were the duck (roasted to perfection), the lowland vegetables, the prawn umai, the mango curry and the slow cooked red snapper. The rice porridge with razor clams was also a pleasant surprise (served with ox tongue on the non-vegetarian menu). The service was great and the venue is nice and stylish. Dewakan is a little off track, probably a 35-45 mins drive from KLCC, but it's so worth it! Next time (because we will come back), I also hope there are sweet wines/ dessert wines available by the glass too. Cannot wait!
Villa Song: "Perfect escape""Spent five days at the Villa Song and it was hard to fault anything, from the service to the amenities. This is a perfect spot to explore Saigon but escape the craziness of city life. We would particularly recommend a happy hour cocktail (or two) on the terrace overlooking the Saigon River. If I was to make one suggestion, it would be for a more frequent speedboat service, especially in the afternoon."
