The Latest Reviews from Our Guests

Thank you for a fabulous time!

We returned from Koh Jum Beach villas two weeks ago now and are still dreaming of being there! Thank you so much for organising our holiday and for answering our endless questions. The accommodation was superb and the island was amazing. Again, thank you for a fabulous time! I will be looking at your website for similar accommodation.

Journey Au Fil du Mekong

Un énorme merci pour l’organisation du voyage. Excellent travail. Tout était parfait: sélection des hôtels, navettes, horaires .. Un petit plus le transfert en jonque entre The Jahan et The Island Lodge! Excellent travail de préparation de votre part. Continuez comme ca.

Review for Kumai

Everything about your company and my cruise was fantastic and the food and kindness of the crew was just unreal.. thank you for offering such a wondrous experience and if you sell those brown Wow Borneo t-shirts the staff was wearing I’d love to buy one and advertise for you in California! I’m going to show all my pics and tell about the trip to all my students ( I’m a high school teacher) and I hope some will be as fortunate as I to take a trip with you. Again, thank you for an unbelievable 4 days.

“Surrounded by a protected coral reef, this luxury private island resort is a serene hideaway in which to relax, dive and snorkel.”

Kim, the discoverer.
