Basaga really enhances the wonderful experiences that Kuching has to offer, not that we managed to do too much in our week, but found it to be quite central to squeeze in a fair amount. Kuching water front, local shopping and bus transport is a lovely walk away, or you can get a lift in. People are up and about... More

We stayed for a few nights as a family and were offered two adjoining rooms near the pool. Basaga has old world charm and a beautiful tropical garden setting. Outdoor shower was great and the gardens are very pretty. Eating area feels relaxed at breakfast and develops quite a 'groove' at night when locals also come for dinner at the... More

I stayed at basaga when I was with a tour group for a few nights and it was nice friendly and clean. The rooms are nice and the pool is good. The food was average, but the bar closes at 2pm as well as the kitchen so there is no way of getting a drink or a snack inbetween 2pm... More

We based ourselves at Basaga whilst day tripping to some of the nearby national parks. This is a pleasant hotel, which has a triple room option if you have three non-romantically involved adults travelling together. The breakfast was included and is adequate. One way transfer from the airport was included, although all guests in the same room had to travel... More

Just the whole layout, such as the wooden floors, the pool, the gardens, then add the over-the-top help of Mildrid and her staff make for an absolutely unique stay. For a small resort everything is right there! Just minutes away from the waterfront, about 20 from the airport...And the food is superb!

Wonderfully friendly staff, air-conditioned rooms with hot showers. Nice bar and excellent mix of good value Indonesian and western food. Nice swimming pool and shaded pool terrace. Lovely decor and plants surround a large, quiet, comfortable terrace are where you can eat your breakfast and relax.

I was told that the property is about 125 years old and was once a school, so that meant that I was probably sleeping in one of the classrooms or a staffroom. I stayed in a spacious room at the main building. I loved that Basaga was nicely decorated with local crafts and lots of healthy green plants, which makes... More

Basaga was perfect for us, close to the city so we get around and go to the places we wanted but not in the centre so it was peaceful, it almost didn't feel like you were in a city! The staff are very friendly especially the reception staff, who can't do enough to help you. The food was great and... More

Lovely house, nicely converted to a hotel with an excellentrestuarant/bar, full of character. We stayed in a small (but comfortable) double room (with good airco and ceiling fan) at the back of the new block, with a private courtyard and open shower. Nice idea, and very quiet, but a bit small and in need of a bit of renovation. Staff... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Basaga! Basaga is located in Kuching, the capital city of Sarawak in Malaysia on the island of Borneo, an island long known for its rich history, culture and eco-tourism. Our property is a truly unique hotel and travel accommodation concept with a great environment and almost resort-like relaxing atmosphere, unlike any that is currently available in the urban Kuching area. Nestled in a secluded, well wooded private property just a mere 7-minute drive away from the City center, Basaga features an exclusive number of 33 well-appointed rooms with full in-room amenities, an annex which houses a private dormitory and leisure facilities contained on the property grounds for our guests' convenience. Basaga's innovative room products and range of services can accommodate the varying needs of tourists and travelers, offering good service, private seclusion with great value for money. It’s more than just a hotel - it’s your residence while in Sarawak. ... more   less
