Arumdalu: "Lovely place, environment and food"Without hesitation, the best place to stay in Belitung. The room is very cozy and beautifully designed. The surroundings also increase the holiday mood, which is really relaxing. Last but not least, they provide excellent food.
Reverie Siam: "Best hotel in Pai – great design. Superb breakfast""This is by far the best hotel in Pai. Beautifully designed with quirky touches. The restaurant is voted the best in Pai - but isn't actually very good. However, the breakfast is sublime and staff incredible. The main swimming pool is lovely and relaxing, the 'riverside bar' is a waste of time so just head straight out and explore the unique Pai - it's what you are here for afterall? We had room / bungalow 8 which was gorgeous but a little dark, I would have liked to see another, brighter room. That said, really comfy bed and the bathroom with Jacuzzi is fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel!"
Dewakan: "Young and talented team"You like good food , good wine and attentif service . Innovative cuisine with locals products. Fusion without confusion . Go dawakan and travel with flavor . Just go
Le Passe-Temps: "Peace and quiet “French” in the tropics”"Thai 9 Bungalows in an extraordinary place, at the edge of the water, with 4 km of beaches almost deserted facing a wonderful bay. Hosting Kiet and Olivier puts you immediately at ease. Nothing is missing: the lounge or take a drink all together, the restaurant on the beach feet in the sand (! With white tablecloths), the swimming pool to cool off when the tide is low, the Thai bungalows richly decorated with objects gleaned by our hosts during their travels. The activities and excursions have been validated and are completely taken in charge by the time the team goes, flawless. Nothing then to come across ghosts amazing couples regularly Hobby for any such convivial atmosphere in the tropics. We really had a great week, thank you to all of the Hobby Team.
Tugu Malang: "An utterly awesome delight!""I spent 2 nights at the Hotel Tugu Malang in late May. I readily admit that I am not accustomed to luxury, and I won’t say whether any of you who are would find the Hotel Tugu Malang to be so, but I was delighted by my experience at this hotel, which I found utterly awesome! The bowl of fresh, peelable fruit – replenished each day and complete with a finger bowl holding water and a freshly cut blossom -- was just one sign that I was in a very, very nice hotel. ☺ My room was lovely and was delightfully furnished. Hot water was plentiful and the water pressure was excellent; my mini-fridge was nicely stocked, as was the tray with an electric kettle and French press; there were even washclothes among the many toiletries in the bathroom, which had lots of counter space, a bath with shower, and a window (with blind and drapes) into the bedroom. And if my balcony was tiny, it was still large enough to offer a small seating area and lovely view over the hotel’s pool area. It wasn’t just the room that wowwed me: The daily high tea held an impressive range of treats served in a delightful setting. The hotel’s spa offered a free 15-minute introductory massage. The breakfast (included in my rate) was generous and delicious. The restaurant offered dinners in several different cuisines and even had a decent selection of wines (if at prices reflecting the rareness of wine in Java). The hotel holds some remarkable artifacts, which can be seen on a tour of the property. And last, but certainly not least, the staff provided exceptional service – kudos one and all! My only very small niggle: The pool is not well separated from the restaurant, so I felt simultaneously “on display” and disruptive when I took a dip while diners were enjoying their meals. Just a small thing...."
Inle Princess Resort: "A unique and beautiful place to stay"Set on the majestic, vast and serene Inle Lake, with its floating villages, this beautiful resort is nestled amongst tropical gardens and pods of lily pads. We enjoyed staying in a lovely, spacious lake chalet which had both an indoor and outdoor shower. The service was first class, meals excellent and the pampering spa amazing. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. We hope to return.
The Hue House: "Excellent service and food"This was my first visit to Ho Chi Minh and been to this restaurant 3 times for dinner during my stay of 5 nights there. The food was fantastic, price reasonable, excellent and friendly service from crews especially crew name Anh Phuc. My family has good time here. Appreciated. Definately will visit again on my next trip.
Summertime Villa: "An oasis of seclusion""Summertime Villa is an oasis of seclusion in one of the most touristy parts of Goa. I can't decide which was my favourite part of my time there... Mornings by the koi fish pond, which I could access from the room I was put up in. Or the afternoons lazing on the deck chair, watching the starlings take quick dips into the water. Or the evening swims in the infinity pool, with the sun setting into a horizon of palm trees. The rooms were cosy yet spacious, the meals were delicious, and the owners delightful company!"
tugu bali: "Traditional old world Balinese style hotel""Drive through traditional villages and rice fields. Only 30 minutes from Seminyak. It is a lovely drive and sometimes people want to see the rice fields without spending a day driving to Ubud. Arrive at Tugu, lovely old world traditional hotel for a nice lunch. A couple of hours of your time well spent. Relaxing, peaceful and educational. "
Tugu Lombok: "Stunning hotel/resort a must visit""My wife and I had stayed in the Ampenan suite that was very comfortable, especially the extra large king bed, the size of the room and quality bed linen. The individual soft furnishings and artworks made it feel very special and homely. We were also given a tour of some of the other types of villa's on offer that were all beautiful in their own individual way. The entire experience at this hotel, even though it was a short stay was very memorable from beginning to end, and everything in between. The beautiful collection of artefacts and antiques throughout the property make it a very unique resort that is also very well maintained. The service and friendliness of the entire team was outstanding. Daisy, Henry and Elly went beyond the call of duty to welcome us and to also make us feel very special. (Thank you) Only 1 of 2 restaurants were in operation due to it being low season. The food was generally of a high standard with a decent verity of local and western food. We would highly recommend Tugu Lombok to anyone who wishes for a first class experience. Thanks again to you all, Matt & Cherry. Stayed January 2017, traveled as a couple"
