The Governor’s House: "memorable stay"Soon as we arrived with our friends from a exhausted flight, the GM take care of us. She invited us on their mini sunset cruise to chilled with some drinks and tapas on the Mekong river. Wonderful. The next day a dinner with a traditional music and apsara dancer organized in the garden surprised our group. The rooms are wonderful decorated with all original antiques and luxery amenities. We decided to short our Siem Reap stay to stay one more night in this feeling home mansion before our flight back. We loved our stay and the very helpful staff. Try the food...
Tugu Malang: "Outstanding Hotel""I went with my family and with a friend and his family Basically to visit Mount Bromo This is truly a gem A wonderful hotel The food is truly amazing and outstanding We tried to get food outside the hotel for one meal at another restaurant But eventually he consensus was that this Hotel has by far the best food in Malang The staff is friendly and very kind and courteous They have solutions for getting to Mount Bromo and they organized it so well We asked the hotel to organize it We had the best service and the best food and the best arrangement ever The team organized everything, even the smallest details were looked after This is one of the best Indonesian properties, and the service and the food and the property is evidence of this The room I had was a little small, but I am willing to look over that, the service and food was Outstanding!!!!!

Hotel Tugu Malang: "Oasis of peace"I love this hotel. It's gorgeous, quirky, welcoming and the service is impeccable. An hour before we needed to leave to visit a mosque my daughter realized her only long sleeved shirt was incredibly wrinkled. We called reception and her shirt was promptly pressed. There are too many exquisite details to list but to name a few : fresh flowers, fruit and glass bottle of mineral water in the room, beautiful lobby with koi pond and fountain, and the quickest room service ever. As a first time visitor to Indonesia, I feel somewhat overwhelmed but returning to Hotel Tugu after a busy day sightseeing is like coming home.
Cuca: "Brilliant Taste and Service"My fiance brought me here on our anniversary last year. From the beginning upon arrival until farewell, we had a spotless service. The staff is highly attentive, yet undisturbed our romantic moment. Perfect! The food? can't ask for more. You should experience yourself for Chef Kevin's masterpiece in this beautiful restaurant. Thank you Cuca and team for the lovely dinner. You guys are amazing!
Amata Lanna: "Beautiful Amata Lanna"Amazing staff. Very poilte and helpful. Hotel has bikes to ride to the city and other helpful items such as umbrellas. Hotel is very peaceful and spa like with beautiful wooden features. Delicious breakfast. Well worth the price. Would highly recommend!
Muang La Lodge: "Worth the journey"There is no way round it, this beautiful hotel is remote, it took us 5 hours to get there and the same to leave. However, the location is beautiful. The hotel is so well run, every detail is perfect. We loved the food as well.
Inle Princess Resort: "A beautiful, peaceful place to stay""We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a garden room rather than a lake room, but still beautiful. There's no tv in the rooms, but who needs that? It was just so peaceful. Great pool, bar and restaurant too and the staff were more than ready to help out with anything. I have coeliacs and the restaurant staff were happy to make something special for me, although that wasn't required as the food on their daily changing menu gave me lots of options. We were there late January and most of the other guests (and the staff) seemed to think the mornings and evenings were cold. Not for us. While the temperature was a little more temperate than other parts of Myanmar, we were perfectly comfortable without long sleeves and scarves, but I suppose that's a subjective experience. Room Tip: You could probably pay more and get a lake view room, but it's not necessary."
The Cabochon Hotel: "Intimate and tranquil boutique hotel in perfect location""We loved the Cabochon hotel and it's warm and friendly staff. The hotel has only eight rooms and suites in a superbly decorated French colonnial style inspired building. Wooden doors, door handles, light switches, quirky collectors items, they all are perfectly curated to add to the colonial feel. Apperently the building itself is a new structure which I only found out by realising there's no way an older wooden building would be able to carry a huge swimmingpool like the luxurious rooftoppool of the Cabocho I read another reviewer mentioning the pool as a small one. I do not know in what hotels some people might stay but the Cabochon pool is in my opinion huge! It covers the entire roof of the hotel (20-25m pool?), and is perfectly fine to do some fine swimming exercises. Another great detail which I loved is that there is no reception desk like in a regular hotel, just a tiny 'office'. From the frontdoor you step into the hallway immediately which leads to the central staircase. This also adds to the homely feel of the Cabochon. Check in is in the lounge area/Joy luck club where also breakfast is being served. You can also have your breakfast on the veranda which is great. The staff we loved. They immediately made us feel at home, spoke english well and were really helpful. Furthermore the location can't be better, at the end of a short quiet soi (alley) that leads directly to Sukhumvit Road with two skytrain stations within a five minute walk. Yes, the regular rooms are not that big but for us it just did add to the intimate feel of our stay here. It felt very special our three nights over at the Cabochon, highly recommended."
Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge: "Amazing service and attention to details""Location: Great view on the Annapurna and the valley. From the welcoming to the departure day (we stayed 3 nights) we had a great hospitality service (meals, drinks,etc..) , we enjoyed the trek with our guide and the helicopter trip to the Annapurna Base Camp. The cottage was perfect, with heater during this period of the year (and the hot water bottle in the bed as a surprise). Will have love to stay longer. Thanks to Marcus for sharing his knowledge of this beautiful country through the day or at dinner time. You are a real ""hotelier"" and congratulation to the team for their service."
