"My wife and I recently visited this resort on our trip from San Francisco and could not have been happier with our stay. It is a beautiful property and the staff could not have been more hospitable. The grounds were beautifully maintained, the rooms were gorgeous and comfortable, and the food was fantastic. We stopped here for a night in between Agra and Jaipur. It is in the countryside so it is a very tranquil and peaceful setting when compared to the city. We were treated like royalty at this 200+ year old castle that was recently restored to this beautiful resort. The resort sits on 100 acres with expansive lawns, a pool, gardens, and a polo field. It is a perfect place to spend a night or two to unwind and get way from the hustle and bustle of India. 5+ stars across the board. Stayed February 2017, traveled as a couple"
"My two days in Muang La were over my high expectations. Everything was fabulous from the location to all the attentions and details of service. The staff is so generous and warm with a special mention to the Lao staff who try and manage to speak English and to provide standard keys of hospitality services to the guest. I loved the deck, the meals all different every night, the pool overlooking the river, the hot springs and the hike to the falls we did with our guide.
I loved this escape ... thank you to Raphael and his assistant to make this lodge and experience fabulous"
We stayed at Noel's Safari for two nights in a family tent (2 adults and 2 kids) and had a great time. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, and were absolute experts when it came to the animals and their habitat. We saw so many amazing wild animals and learned so many things about them. Back at the camp, the food was absolutely phenomenal - so delicious and an amazing array of dishes. We all had a fantastic time and would recommend this to any animal lover!!!
MesaStila: "Impressive Resort in Central Java"
"I stay here with my wife for 3D2N and it's not enough. Mesastila offers a wonderful wellness experience. This resort surrounded by mountains and panoramic view. It's all a natural comfort experience. We stayed in Arum Villa. A very traditional Javanese house with brilliant balcony view where we can see 4 mountains ahead. This spacy villa offers comfortable bed and furnishing (in traditional way), nice bathtub, and fast wi-fi just in case I need to do some of my work in the balcony with mountain view. Don't forget to try it's Hammam Spa, enjoy the sunset along with their afternoon tea & snack, plantation tour, and delicious food. It's a very recommended resort and I definitely will come back here."
We stayed in a hillside villa. The villa was lovely with two balconies with amazing sea views and access to the private beach. It had all the amenities we needed. The staff are extremely helpful and polite and Ben made sure we had a great experience. The food in the restaurant was good and it has a nice atmosphere in the evening when the day trippers have headed back to KK.. There is also a house band happy to attempt any request you have.. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
MesaStila: "Flavour of true and sweet Indonesia"
High level place, perfectly managed, top level food, wonderful garden and atmosphere, a rare sample of kindness from all the staff. All the forniture of the place is really antique. The pool view on the forest is unique.Thank you Mesastila.
"Received a very warm welcome from all the staff while walking up to the third floor.
Everyone was smiling which was great. The seating was rather uncomfortable although the food made up for that shortcoming. Excellent quality of Thai food with authentic flavours. Staff were well mannered and efficient given our large group of 10 with 2 children. Also, the Italian red wine we had as a house pouring wine was excellent at the price. An easy drink and memorable too. Would come back again when next in Bangkok."
"Spectacular experience! Food, setting, service - all were perfect. The chef really draws on Cambodian flavors and seasonal fruit and vegetables, and combines them in an impeccably thought-out menu. The fish and seafood dishes were particularly delicious - although we loved everything we ate. You could easily pay three or four times the price for this standard of menu in the US. I cannot recommend Cuisine Wat Damnak highly enough. They were very accommodating of my pescatarian diet. And it was such a charming and relaxed dining experience. Ps. Opt for the fan seating rather than the A/C as the fan seating is in the more charming upstairs of the restaurant. Make reservations at least a few weeks in advance. I would also recommend the tamarind collins if you would like a cocktail with dinner."
Villa Mathis: "as usual, a very pleasant stay, away from the rush, my favourite in the south"
very nice staff, good food, relaxing and very private areas complete this wonderful stay. we used also the shuttle transfer (free) to seminiak center for shopping and a walk down to the beach, now leaving bali this evening ... till next time :)
