Tugu Lombok: "world class tropical island resort"
"We recently stayed at hotel Tugu for our honeymoon. From the moment we were picked up at the airport the hotel staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. The hotel staff were always very friendly, and happily greeted us at breakfast, lunch and dinner and whenever we were out and about in the resort. The staff were very enthusiastic to offer us activities around the island during our stay. We were pretty much able to make any of our Lombok dreams come true. We were able to experience traditional weaving in a traditional women's weaving village, amazing water falls at sanur, my husband hand fished with the local fisherman, snorkeling with turtles in beautiful clear waters off the Gili islands and a beautiful romantic beach side dinner at sunset. our honeymoon at hotel Tugu was an absolutely amazing experience. We were welcomed like family, a perfect getaway. Complementary breakfast and afternoon tea was always wonderful and of the highest quality. The complimentary massages were very welcoming as well, thank you. Half way through our stay we were generously upgraded to an Oceanside villa with a plunge pool which was extremely generous, thank you Mr Henry. We traveled in low season and it felt like we pretty much had the whole resort all to ourselves. If you want seclusion, privacy, away from ""the rat race"", relaxation, beautiful surroundings, wonderful atmosphere ,world class service and a romantic tropical island beach resort get away, we would highly recommend hotel tugu Lombok. A special thanks to hotel manager Henry and every single one of his amazing team on there attention to detail and customer service we received at all times throughout our stay. We will definitely be back in the future. Mr & Mrs Bruno Stayed February 2017, traveled as a couple"
"This stunning place is full of Art with a personal touch of all the staff. Especially the Reception guy in the morning (sorry i forgot his name) was of great help. Also chant at the bar was always taking care of us with great attention. The Food was outstanding just try the chocolate fondant. Can't wait to return when the outdoor restaurant will open. Great choice can't go wrong here..."
4 Rivers Floating Lodge: "take me back to the 4rivers where the everything is green and the staff is pretty…awesome"
"Never would I ever have expected to find a 5* service in such a remote place. It is so remote that after you step on the boat in Tatai village, you won`t set foot on land for days. And that is mostly because the resort is 100% floating. Which makes it even more awesome. The staff there is simply amazing. The kind of service you would get in a top quality hotel in Europe. They will attend carefully to your every need. Even though you won`t need much being there. You are surrounded by a clean river and the river is surrounded by untouched jungle. Maybe one of the last virgin forests in Cambodia and the whole world. You can take a kayak and discover for yourself, or take the guided tours to the waterfall or to the mangrove forest. You can read books, swim in your own huge river kind of pool and enjoy the delicious food carefully prepared by the Filipino chef. Oh, and one more thing. Maybe the most important one. If you are into protecting the environment and having an eco holiday, this is the place for you. The management there is going over their head to keep almost everything clean. And by that I mean not polluting. The garbage bags are biodegradable, most of the buildings are made from recycled materials or using a clean technology, they strive to use mostly solar power, and even the toiletries that they provide are specially made not to disrupt the balance of the surrounding ecosystems. To sum it up, it`s a gem, one of a kind. It`s a floating heaven."
The River Resort: "Magical environment. Great people."
Very rarely am I blown away with a hotel. This time I was. Met at airport by Hotel car. Taken to this place that appears to be in the middle of nowhere built on the bank of the river. Arranged direct transfer as was quoted 3 times as much by an agency. Set around rice fields. Had three night stay. Was not long enough. Room weas great. Large balconies front and back. Indoor and outdoor showers. Lots of space. Most helpful staff. Arrange tuc tuc - or even car if you are that way inclined - to Wat Phu and other places nearby, Good open restaurant overlooking the river. Enjoyed the food (and for me that is not always the case).And really lovely people who went out of their way to assist in every way. Its the only place to stay if you wish to visit Wat Phu. And that is something that you really ought to wish to do.

Satri House: "Quiet very stylish place with excellent breakfast under new competent management"
"The place is a ""total work of art"" - the traditional building- the impressive collection of precious regional artifacts . We felt very relaxed in a wonderful secluded and quiet atmosphere- yet with one of the hotels bicycles or also by feet very close to the center of Luang Prabang or Mekong river site. The personal was very friendly and helpful -they even followed our taxi as we had forgotten something when leaving. Stayed March 2017, traveled as a couple"
This place is run by a charming and experienced Swiss couple who clearly know what they are doing - the ambience is great the food excellent and the service is good. We meant to go back again for lunch but sadly were not able to fit it in. Well worth a visit and highly recommended
Rachamankha: "Better than expected"
"Enchanting, exquisite , excellent, charming, amazing ..... What more can I say? My husband and I stayed at this very beautiful rare gem of a boutique hotel last week and everything couldn't be more perfect, Special thanks and much appreciation to service staff during breakfast and front desk they were all super professional including the security guard who had a torch light ready when he saw me ""digging"" into my handbag in the dark to pay the tuk tuk driver. Will definitely be planning another trip there!"
Absolute heaven on earth. Beautiful location and the staff are all wonderful. You completely relax here. It is definitely one of the most unique places I have ever stayed. The tents are really comfortable with everything you could want. The trip to the Tatai Waterfall was a particular highlight. We also did the 7.00 am trek - although we didn't see any wildlife, it was still very enjoyable and the boat ride back to the Lodge was really beautiful.
