tugu bali: "My Tugu Hotel Experience was nothing short of amazing""I am very late writing this review, but i have stayed at the Tugu Hotel in Bali a few times now. and it is nothing short of paradise. The hotel itself is made up of a number of villas scattered in a tropical garden and each one i have stayed in was very comfortable and extremely well facilitated, the main lobby, restaurant and each room is full of beautiful and traditional antiques from around Indonesia. The location is great, its in Canggu away from the Kuta and Seminyak areas, located next to Batu Bolong Beach, with Old Mans Bar opposite, for me it is the perfect location and setting. Dining at the Tugu is also an experience in itself, the menu is extensive, from traditional Balinese, Indonesian and Asian dishes to a full Western menu. everything (including Breakfast) was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The staff have always been nothing but friendly, happy to greet you and nothing is too much to ask. I really do not have one negative comment about this wonderful boutique hotel. Great place, i will continue to stay and dine there each time i head to Bali. Thank you Tugu Hotel for making my stays perfect :) "
MesaStila: "Must-visit place for nature lovers, coffee lovers, & traditional Java-Dutch royal lovers"We fell in love since we arrived at the gate of Mesa Stila. My older daughter (6 yo) said it's just like her dream castle :) the concierge, lobby, and the villa were beautiful as well as overall resort landscape. The staff's service was impressive & very helpful. We enjoyed the coffee plantation tour, beautiful afternoon tea, bicycle riding for my two-daughters, swimming, and quality breakfast indeed. My daughters did not want to go home after stay, so did I and my husband actually haha. Mesa Stila is exactly the place to spend quality time with your beloved. Thank you for the great service!
Satri House: "Ooh, this Indochine feeling""Wanna feel like a character in an Indochine film-noir? Stay at the Satri House in Luang Prabang and you will likely grow into it! Or just stay there because the place is more than perfect. Very atmospheric rooms: nothing beats this early morning light coming into the room through these shutter doors. Dwell around those steps and shady arcades and gaze at all these decorating items - where did they get all those beautiful things from? Two swimming pools, very friendly, professional and helpful staff, beautiful garden, great restaurant - what else do you need? LP is on walking distance, but you can take a hotel bike too."
Rachamankha: "Amazing hotel retreat right inside four walls of Chang mai"This hotel is centrally located in Chang Mai and is perfect for couples looking to escape and relax after long days of exploring. The hotel has the bones and charm of being built in the 14th century with all the modern conveniences. When we come back there is no doubt where we will stay.
Slow Villas and Spa: "Heaven in Gili""It's difficult to describe... it was amazing! Kind staff who pampered me throughout my stay! They are always ready to help and offer additional information when asked. Slow villas is beautiful, breakfast was delicious and the spa treatments were great! I was delighted to have had this experience at Slow villas! Thank you so much! I hope to come back in the future!"
Bassac Cruises: "Relaxing way to see the countryside and river""We booked a one night cruise and struck lucky as we were the only passengers on board. Even the 4 hour transfer on the first day was soon forgotten when we had lunch on board and cruised along the river and canals. In the afternoon we had a walk around the countryside and sampled some fruit. Everything was explained perfectly by An who gave us a lesson in everything Vietnamese, history, economy, education, social services, you name it, she explained it all to us. Back on board we had a drink followed by dinner. After a nightcap we retired to the small but comfortable a air conditioned cabin with ensuite. Early to rise, we had breakfast on board before transferring to a smaller boat for the final tours of local sugar factory, floating market and rice cake making. Again, expertly explained by An, we sadly said our goodbyes to face the 2 1/2 hour transfer back to Saigon. This was a great way to get to know a piece of the real Vietnam."
Rakkojae Seoul: "Hanok Stay with modern conveniences"We visited Seoul as a family reunion. Rakkojae was within walking distance to The Blue House, the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, Buckchon Village, Jogyesa Temple, Insadong, and lots of Michelin rated restaurants. The staff and Mr. Kim, our host/concierge was very helpful with recommendations of what to do, where to eat, arrange taxi rides, etc. He even was kind enough to allow us to leave our luggage before and after our stay to allow us a little more time in Seoul. Rakkojae Seoul is located in a very quiet, off-the-beaten-track neighborhood that make us feel like we are back in the Joseon Dynasty. Oh, and the staff provided us with a delicious traditional Korean breakfast, and Continental Breakfast. If you want a Hanok experience with modern conveniences, we highly recommend Rakkojae Seoul.
Jings Residence: "Fabulous peaceful retreat in Pingyao"A superb hotel - with attentive staff, very well appointed rooms and food second to none. The traditionally laid out courtyard, with room off it, provides a serene haven for recovery after a long journey (you must have travelled a long way to get to PIngyao!). The staff - led by Imam - are quietly attentive seeing to all of your needs. The room are well appointed and comfortable. If you can, eat in - the standard of food is the very highest. I wish there were more places like this!
Labyrinth: "Tasting Menu not to be missed"We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Definitely worth the visit. Service was great and each course was well explained. Restaurant was a little difficult to find in the shopping centre with limited signage but a delightful evening - would recommend.
Satri House: "Charme désuet de l’Indochine avec toutes les commodités modernes""Quel bonheur d'arriver dans ce havre de paix au charme d'antan et plein d'odeurs exotiques. Personnel très attentionné et à la fois discret. Magnifiques jardins, piscines, chambres... tout y est parfait. Inutile de dire que nous avons adoré ainsi que les vélos à disposition pour se rendre en ville qui est à 10 minutes à pieds. Stayed February 2017, traveled with friends"
