We loved the stay - very clean, comfy room, nice restaurant and pool. Very pleasant and helpful staff, tasty breakfast. The hotel is not situated in the city centre but still not too far (taxi would take you to the centre for 12 RM). We enjoyed lovely massage in the neighbourhood - the name of the massage parlor is "Tribal... More

Basaga in Borneo is value-for-money with a bit of history thrown in: a colonial dwelling, turned into barracks, then a school, and now holiday residences. It is totally unique, the most fantastic oasis surrounded by empty lots and the highway. But you’d never know it. Leave behind Developed World expectations: i.e. the bathroom door in #10 doesn’t close. There’s bound... More

I spent a couple of hours here chilling out and did have a look around, it looks lovely. In fact I wish I had stayed there, but alas was already booked elsewhere. I did however have the pleasure of spending the day with Brandon Lim the owner - he took us to the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre to see the orangutans... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Basaga, the pool was a haven after a hot day's sightseeing. The food at the restaurant was wonderful, it's a lovely big open area with a really nice vibe. So good in fact we didn't bother going into town for dinner during our time in Kuching. We also recommend the hotel's tour operator, he... More

This place is so much more then just a hotel. Great facilities to relax in the partly outside lounge with great furniture. Well surrounded by plants. Great big room. I would certainly recommend this to visitors of Kuching.

An ideal place if you are looking for a relaxing yet fun accomodation for family travelling with young children. While lazing at the bar or by the pool with cool beer, children can play safely in the small size pool. Wonderful setting !

Seemed a bit basic when we did our first couple of days there but on the return from our trekking around the rainforest the Basaga was luxury. Stayed in one of the pool rooms which were pleasant and near the pool & bar. The restaurant was popular too with locals a good sign. Food was very nice and cheap would... More

I first stayed at Basaga in 2013, where the hotel left such a great impression on me that I return every time I am in Kuching!! I was last there a week ago, and every time the service and comfort just get better. The staff could not do enough for you, and will always to out of their way to... More

This place is a hidden gem if you like moist, humidity and swimming pool. Don't be to shy to ask for just anything from clothings drying rack to hair dryer. They are there to serve you with smiles. It is easy to get a taxi and it took less than 15 minutes to reach to the airport even on Monday... More
