Maison Polanka: "Ideal base in Siem Reap"

Review by: ozkong | Source: Trip Advisor
"To us, Maison Polanka is the ideal type of place to stay. With only a maximum of 10 guests in luxuriant grounds of 6000 sq m, it provides a tranquil oasis to rest after the jostle of Angor Wat. This creates an intimate atmosphere where one gets the chance to interact with both staff & other guests. The Sala next to the pool is a very pleasant place to have a quiet dinner. Both dinners we had there and also the breakfasts were excellent. We went out to the nearby Marun Restaurant (where marginalized kids are trained to work in hospitality) because we wanted to support the cause."

Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris: "4 Safari’s in 2 daya"

Review by: Nickers-original | Source: Trip Advisor
Had a great time on safari at Noel Rodrigo's leopard safari tour - we did 2 morning and 2 evening safaris and stayed in their glamping accommodation complete with shower and proper toilet. When we were not off road chasing down wildlife we enjoyed the amazing home cooked local food at the campsite. Saw lots of animals but our favourite was ending up in the middle of a herd of elephants - amazing experience! The staff were all lovely and knowledgeable - highly recommend it!

VILLA MATHIS: "Excellent time at Villa Mathis"

Review by: Moad B | Source:
"My wife and i stayed at La Villa Mathis in Bali and this was one of the best experiences we ever had, not only due to the beauty of the place (it was paradise on earth) but the way the stuff did everything they could in their power to makes us feel home. The prime examples was the great help they provided me to plan for my wife's birthday and they even allowed us to stay longer after the check out time so that we do not stress for our late flight with access non-only to our room but also all the facilities they had on site until before our flight. The highlight of the place were the amenities (different luxuries pools and salons where you can hang out as well as Jacuzzi and massage rooms) but the service with a smile was above and beyond what we ever experienced in any other luxury hotels/villas. A big thanks to the lady at the front who helped us plan every single day of our stay and to the excellent management provided by Frank with the help of his staff.We will definitely come back soon.

Babe: "A dinner to remember, but you want to get ready for the damage (the bill)"

Review by: Volodkina O | Source: Trip Advisor
"We've spent just two days in KL and this restaurant has become one of the most memorable experience for us. The view was unbelievable and we were lucky enough to get a ""front row"". The personnel is just beyond expectations - polite, classy, service hearts indeed. The chef is just fantastic, he presented his own quisine: zapas - japanese sushi. His dishes are like a symphony - he took us from literally a splash in a mouth, to intense flavors and then experimental ice cream dish...and the dessert...we've ordered french fries with truffle on top of the offered set. We also loved the selection of sake, absolutely loved it. Yes, we paid quite a big bill, but it was worth it! Also, if you a celebrating an anniverary - go ahead, surprise your significant other. A show at a table next to us left me speachless...)"

SEEDS Restaurant & Lounge: "Full of Love"

Review by: Rob12375 | Source: Trip Advisor
"As their website states the husband and wife team that owns and operates this restaurant are full of love of everything and it shows in the food that they serve, the ambiance and comfort of the restaurant and the many good causes they support. When I emailed the restaurant to book a reservation here is the response that I received: ""Thank you so much for your reservation. We will set up a nice table for you on terrace. Thank you so much. With best regards, Lin Lin"". Right from the start I had no doubt that I had picked a great place to dine in Yangon. Felix is a Michelin Starred Chef who has worked in many restaurants in Europe and his wife and partner Lucia is a wonderful hostess and manager for the restaurant. Lucia came by our table several times during our dinner to visit with us and we had several amazing conversations with her about their history as husband and wife in the restaurant industry. We learned from Lucia that she and Felix decided that they wanted more than what Europe had to offer and traveled to Malaysia to open a restaurant there and then continued on to Myanmar where they found their dream location. The food that they serve at Seeds is absolutely outstanding, made from very fresh local ingredients and the servings are generous. Between each course we were provided with small snacks that were also amazing. At the end of our dinner we were inundated with incredible desserts even after saying that we could not eat any more food. We took what we could not eat back to our hotel and we had a wonderful treat for the next day. During our conversations with Lucia she explained how much they love supporting the local farmers, the local meat producers, the local people and also the community of Myanmar as a whole. After leaving Yangon my wife and I have talked about Seeds a lot, how wonderful the food was and how wonderful and giving Felix and Lucia are. We hope that everyone who visits Myanmar will include dining at Seeds during their visit for the great food that they serve, the great causes that they support and their love of everything that they do."

Villa Song Saigon: "Amazing experience"

Review by: Peter F | Source:
We have just finished 3 nights here at Villa Song before departing on a river cruise and we wish that it could have been longer. This is an old French colonial house right on the Saigon river. The rooms are beautiful as is the grand winding staircase. We arrived on a flight at 11 pm and we're quickly shown to our room which was very spacious with a great bed and bathroom. The next morning was a wonderful experience as I walked down the stairs and onto the foyer to reveal an amazing view of the restaurant and outdoor dining on the Saigon river. Food was great, staff were superb and overall a great experience. This hotel is in a quiet area in district 2 so is a fair way out of Saigon Central, but hotel car runs frequently during the day to Central Saigon and finishes at the Opera House. But anyway even though it's a huge bustling city the taxi fare is around $A10. A wonderful stay.

Neeleshwar Hermitage: "Peace and tranquility"

Review by: JESSICA A | Source: Trip Advisor
Beautiful, beautiful, rural location. You feel completely out of touch of the modern world and utterly in touch with nature and your surroundings. Amazing spa, best massages of my life and beautiful products to be bought here. As a real yogi I loved the yoga on the beach every morning free of charge! The food was delicious and the staff were so accommodating to my slightly poorly stomach (from previously in my trip) and made me food of the menu to keep me perky!
