Misool Eco Resort: "🌴☀️🐟 Рай на земле 🌴☀️🐟""Это действительно райское место, земной рай именно там! Отдыхали здесь с мужем и друзьями, первый раз мне не хотелось уезжать домой Отель великолепный, номера - это бунгало на воде, под тобой снуют маленькие акулки и множество прекрасных рыбок. В номере есть все необходимое, холодильник, сейф, кондиционер. Убираются несколько раз в день. Кухня заслуживает особого внимания, завтрак обед и ужин включены в программу. Есть еще второй завтрак и перекус в 5 часов, повар виртуоз, меню за 7 дней нашего пребывания ни разу не повторилось, все очень вкусно и красиво. Блюда приготовлены и оформлены как в хороших ресторанах. Всегда большое количество овощей, для вегетарианцев тоже раздолье. Всегда есть фреши и фрукты в вазе, можно перекусить по дороге на дайвинг:) Между дайвами можно сходить на традиционный массаж, 90 минут релакса и кайфа, мы оттуда выползали совершенно счастливыми:) Подводный мир, наверное, самый красивый в мире. Манты, черепахи, акулы, наполеоны, огромное разнообразие кораллов и губок, величайшее разнообразие мелких и крупных рыбешек, ну очень красиво. Отдых был великолепен, недели оказалось маловато:( Но мы обязательно повторим эту поездку. Огромное спасибо всему персоналу, каждый старался сделать наш отдых прекрасным и незабываемым. Мы вернемся!!! Stayed January 2017, traveled with friends"
Rahai'i Pangun Wildlife River Cruises: "a dive in pure nature""AMAZING! this is the feeling when you are on the beautiful Sekonyer Boat by Wow Borneo. In the middle of the jungle, with its humidity, light, sounds, colors, yet you feel comfortable on the boat, pampered by the crew... from food, to attentions ... and their eyes are so used to spot any animals that we managed to see orangutans, crocodiles, many birds and moneys, irrawaddy dolphins..."
MesaStila: "An amazing holiday""We live in Jakarta and were in desperate need of nature. We travel a lot, both for work and leisure and are quite picky with accommodation. For our holidays, we like to stay away from soulless big chains without having to compromise on comfort and quality. Mesa Stila did not disappoint: from start to finish, everything was perfect. The hotel itself and the grounds are magical, and the mountain views from the rooms are spectacular. Even the hotel's website doesn't do justice. Thanks to the activities, we never got bored during our 3 day stay and never got out of the hotel. We made full use of the facilities on site (spa, pool, restaurant, kid indoor playground) and of the complementary activities (yoga, jungle gym, coffee tour plantation). Considering the remote location of the hotel, we were very impressed by the level of professionalism and skill of the staff (I practice yoga twice a week, and my husband is very athletic and both instructors were really good). Unfortunately we didn't have time to try horseriding but the horses looked very well cared for and the man in charge told us he was an ex-jockey. Our visit happened during rainy season and although it rained most afternoons, we always found something to do (hanging out with our friends in the main house enjoying the complementary afternoon tea, taking turns going to the spa...). We found the hotel very kid friendly (traveling with 3 kids: 3, 1, and 6 months): indoor playroom, shallow kid pool, accommodating restaurant and good kids menu... A few packing tips: clothes for slightly cooler weather (the hotel is located 700m above sea level and it can get chilly in the evenings during rainny season), plastic flip flops in case you are visiting during rainy season"
Villa Song: "What a wonderful gem of a hotel""I stayed in this lovely hotel for three nights and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Let’s start with the property, the Villa is so beautiful and charming. The furnishings are well appointed and the size of the room itself is comfortable and roomy. The bathroom was especially relaxing with everything you would need. The room comes with a complimentary mini-bar that is re-stocked daily and the bed was so comfortable. The grounds are inviting with a super large lap pool and a small but very adequate gym. Start your day with breakfast sitting next to the Saigon River and finish with a cocktail while relaxing next to the river. The staff is superb and very knowledgeable, the manager definitely is of top quality and explains why the staff is the same. They assisted me with booking a tour of the Mekong and I was very satisfied. I will definitely stay at this property on a future visit. If planning a trip to Saigon, definitely stay at the Villa Song as you won’t be disappointed. Make sure you eat as many meals as possible as the it is a gastronomical delight that will leave your palate dancing for days."
Cheong Fatt Tze – Blue Mansion: "Cheong"Boutique hotels are always on our route when exploring new territories, as they offer a unique experience of the local culture. CHEONG FATT TZE MANSION is no exception. Legendary in the annals of Penang Island, Malaysia, “La maison Bleue” (the blue mansion) stands graciously in the middle of the cultural center of UNESCO world heritage site of George Town for over 135 years. We recommend to anyone visiting this are to look no further and book a few night at CHEONG FATT TZE. You will be leaving with some enchanting stories of the past and delicious food in your bellies, while having experience the relaxing and elegance of this very beautiful hotel.
Heritage Suites Hotel: "Good Retreat at the End of the Day"We spent 4 nights at the Heritage Suites in Siem Reap, while visiting the Angkor Wat ruins and surrounding countryside. When we returned in the late afternoon every day, it was an excellent refuge from the heat and humidity. The grounds are lovely, the staff are excellent, and the rooms are well appointed. It’s a great place to reflect on what you’ve seen and heard during the day, and rest up before the next day. All and all a fine accommodation.
Mie Cafe: "Fancy, delicious and still good value for money""I had the gourmet menu and was very satisfied with my choice. It was fun to try oxtail and the first starter with shrimp and avocado was amazing. The chocolate fondant for desert was perfect. Would recommend this place to anyone. Even if you're on a tight budget, it's worth a visit and 24 dollars well spent. Staff was very friendly and attentive too. Food was served quickly. We took a tuktuk here from the night market for USD3 and decided to walk back (halv an hour)."
SEEDS Restaurant & Lounge: "Oasis in the middle of busy Yangon"A stunning place in the heart of Yangon, with an impecable view towards the Inya Lake. The food is just perfection and the hosts are really nice. The only thing I could criticize would be that the table is a little bit dark.
SEEDS Restaurant & Lounge: "must visit when in yangon"My husband and me went for dinner to this amazing restaurant which is so lovingly handled by the chef and his wife. The food is amazing, service top notch and the place itself is so beautiful. I would recommend this over Le planteaur anyday. The food here is tastier and better value for price. They serve a starter plate and salads, tasting desert plate. Attention to details is amazing. Must not miss this when in Yangon.
Satri House: "Just wonderful and charming""Excellent in every way! Top in quality of the rooms decorated with local and colonial furniture, the staff is helpful, the spa was really agreeable, the restaurant is top even if the staff is still lacking a bit of experience in the way of taking orders. For sure, this will be the place I will go back to next time I am in Luang Prabang."
