My wife and I were upgraded to the honeymoon suite at no extra charge when we stayed for 4 nights in Kuching as were spending our 25th wedding anniversary there. Although the residence is located on a busy road not far from the airport, it is set back from the road. The trees and buildings shelter the complex from the... More

We stayed 3 separate nights at Basaga in between trips out of Kuching, including a 5 night stint in the rainforest. The accommodation is simple but clean and spacious with fans and air conditioning. Twice we had the same adjoining rooms so my daughter had one room and my partner and I had the other with a door in between.... More

Basaga Holiday Residences is a peaceful haven in Kuching. Although you are near busy streets in the middle of a city, you just don't notice it. The rooms - which are in a separate building - are spacious and nice. We had connecting rooms, a great solution for families. All rooms have air conditioning. There is a lovely swimming pool... More

We stayed for 3 weeks. We were upgraded to honeymoon suite at no extra charge because of my mobility problems. The room was out of this world. All the staff were fantastic and very friendly. The food was extremely good and plenty of it. Do use Brandon and Tanty as your tour guides as they are extremely knowledgable and make... More

Really enjoyed our four-day stay at Basaga at the end of our Malaysian holiday. Simple, but clean and spacious room with nice seats on the balcony. Very peaceful, with a nice pool and great bar and eating area. Eric, the barman was brilliant and the manager, Brandon, couldn't have been more helpful in taking us to the bank and organising...

Definitely enjoyed our stay in Basaga. Situated near the waterfront - can't walk but only 5mins away by motorbike or taxi. Room is extremely cozy. We got the rooms at the back with our own private garden. Rooms were very well maintained. Staff is very helpful and friendly from the laundry lady, to the driver and the front desk staff.... More

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

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
