Cheong Fatt Tze – Blue Mansion: "Steeped in History"

Review by: jeffreydelc | Source: Trip Advisor
"We stayed at the mansion because we were very interested in its history. Built as home to a notable tycoon named Cheong Fatt Tze, the mansion fell into disrepair until it was restored beautifully by a local architect who also become the proprietor of the hotel. The atmosphere inside was very calming and peaceful. Our room, called the Shantung, was spacious, comfortable and well-appointed with all modern comforts. It was located in one of the side courtyard of the mansion, which they call the dry courtyard - there is a wet courtyard with ponds at the opposite side of the mansion. As hotel residents we were entitled to free guided tour, which was really informative and well-presented. It made us appreciate the history of the place and the massive efforts undertaken to preserve it even more. Local snacks was placed in our bedroom at the evening. A la carte breakfast was served in the dining room just off the central courtyard. The food was excellent. We wanted to dine at the Indigo Restaurant at the 2nd floor but unfortunately it was closed off for private function during our stay. There is a swimming pool at the side courtyard, which we didn't get to use but would be a welcome respite from Penang's heat. There's a shop too selling merchandise of the mansion."

Hotel Tugu Lombok: "Simply the best"

Review by: Cinthia L | Source: Trip Advisor
Had this short break from work few months ago, and a friend recommended Tugu as we’re familiar with the group’s restaurant in Jakarta. The stay was the highlight after spending time in Gili, meals were surprisingly good although a bit pricy, amazing location, and the service was excellent. Thumbs up for all the staff, so friendly and super helpful. Will definitely comeback next year! YEAYY

"My family (me hubby 7 year old) just had the most amazing experience with Noel and Cecile and all the staff. The campsite was clean. Beautifully eco friendly and in a perfect setting. Our tent (we went luxury) was so comfortable I wish we could have spent so many more days there. The important thing is the way that Noel and his Drivers are knowledgeable and care so much for the environment. Unlike other cowboy jeep safaris. Their jeeps are quiet. They don't race around to chase the animals. They know what to look for. We had some amazing sightings. But it is nature so no expectations! The evenings were spent swapping tales with others. Our daughter loved the whole experience. Food was incredible Would love to go back! "

Tugu Lombok: "Outstanding and unique!"

Review by: Lola66A | Source:
We recently enjoyed a three day stay in a Bhagavat Gita suite (107) filled with antiques, artwork and the biggest most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! The service was impeccable and the food wonderful. Make sure you have a beach dinner one night - just magic. The outdoor shower is also amazing! I would highly recommend a stay here and we certainly hope to go back.

Tugu Bali: "Unforgettable"

Review by: task69 | Source: Trip Advisor
"The experience starts in the wonderful lobby, when arriving at the Tugu. The old and marvelous pieces of furniture, the statues, the wooden passage among flowers and balinese symbols and, most of all, the warm and gentle welcome by the staff, gives you a first succulent taste of what the stay will be. This is confirmed throughout the entire time spent in Tugu's suites, true traditional balinese wooden villas, perfectly furnished and communicating that real old style luxury that you are probably looking for if you chose to stay in this place. It's expensive, but worth every single euro spent. I hope I will have the chance to come back. In one word: excellent!"

Villa Song Saigon: "The best boutique 5star Hotel of Saigon"

Review by: CDW_65 | Source: Trip advisor
We have enjoyed every minute of our stay at Villa Song. The extremely warm-hearted and friendly staff made us feel at home in no time. The great location of the Villa directly at the Saigon river in the very hipp and up-coming District 2 of beautiful Saigon adds to the overall quality of the stay. We will surely come back!

Maduzi Hotel: "Best hotel ever"

Review by: kylie_chu | Source: Trip Advisor
"너무 좋다는 후기들만 있어서 긴가민가했는데 정말 최고였습니다. 모든게 너무 깨끗하고 좋아서 함부로 못쓸것같은 느낌이 들 정도였어요! 침대도편하고 교통도 좋고 직원들도 매우 친절하고 저희 신혼여행이라고 방도 업그레이드해주시고 어매니티도좋고 불만이전혀없는 호텔이었습니다. 아 샤워기가 고정식인데 좀 불편해요.. 그것빼곤 완벽합니다. My hubby and I stayed at Maduzi on the last day of our honeymoon trip and this hotel made the end of our trip very pleasant. The location is good (some 5 mins of walk to the nearest stn), all the facilities and the huge bed were very clean and comfy, and the amanities provided smelled really sweet. Plus, the staff were sooo friendly and helpful that they even upgraded our room, knowing that we were honeymooners. Cannot describe enough how much we were satisfied with our stay at Maduzi! The only downside was the shower which was fixed on the wall or the ceiling.. somehow I felt uncomfortable with it. And yet, we will definitely go back!!"

MesaStila: "Boutique Villa in Javanese Style"

Review by: AnneHu | Source: Trip Advisor
Heard the story from staff that a Spanish lady built this place and all the villas were moved from somewhere in Central Java so that all villas are unique. I joined the coffee plantation trip and liked it. Also I bought one pack of coffee beans from gift shop, which was quite nice actually.

4 Rivers Floating Lodge: "A Stunning Place to find where your heart belongs to"

Review by: Jerry2528 | Source: Trip Advisor
"Very accidentally and surprisingly came across 4 rivers floating lodge while cruising on Tatai river. Still remembered the feeling when the image of 4 rivers floating lodge came into my eyes, from far to close to the site, not just beautiful,but grateful to have you in this place I think the beauty of the place should be discovered by yourself,It's like for a man, you would enjoy to discover by a layer and layer : ) The most impressive part is always the people, especially the owner of 4 rivers, has been struggled a lot to help local community and kids over there, protecting the environment which makes the trip more meaningful to all the visitors. Tips for visiting 4 Rivers: - Best reason is Between October to April, if lucky enough i mean the weather, you will find a lot of fireflies looks like a Christmas tree and a lot of butterflies you have never ever seen before. - you should bring your binoculars and astronomical telescope, you could see many rare birds and gibbons - The most important FACT need to be aware is about the poor connection of the cellphone, recommend to use Melfone SIM card with better connection but not assure it is always stable. - it's like 5h30mins depart from Phnom penh to 4 rivers, 3hrs from Sihanouk ville to 4 rivers by car. Pick-up arrangement is also available for them."
