I booked a budget room and then received an option to upgrade to poolside. Poolside in Bali is lovely, so I thought, why not? Don't do it. The rooms, although decorated nicely, are dark and musty. The plumbing sounds like a dying water buffalo. I thought I could leave the door open and the room would freshen -- It didn't... More

Great hotel with perfect tour organizer. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpfull a specially Miss Nadia. You have to wait a little for a food in restaurant but it is really worth it. Only one thing to improve is waiters service, if it will be better all will be perfect. If you are looking for expirience with nature... More

We stayed at Basaga for two nights after trying another Hôtel downtown, I have to stay it was amazing ! Although it is half an hour walk from downtown (or not even 5min by taxi, also cheap), the surroundings trees and green lawn makes up for it, you are in a city without the noise disturbance. The staff is very... More

We stayed 4 days here. Set in lovely gardens, the staff were very friendly and helpful, great bar and good cocktails, delicious food for dinner although breakfast was very basic. Our verandah room was spacious and very comfortable but the shower was hand held, not on the wall. Just a small thing but it makes a difference.

I was really pleased with Basaga. The room was spacious, and clean. The tour guide, Brendan, attached to the hotel was very efficient and organized and very knowledgeable. The hotel is a bit out of the centre of town but they run 2 free shuttles a day so it wasn't a problem. Except for the elephants that were in the... More

I was traveling alone and Basaga was a transfer stop. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms clean and comfortable. There is a lovely on-site restaurant and lounge area. Close access to the waterfront. I would definitely recommend a stay and would definitely choose to stay again when in Kuching.

Loved that this hotel is conveniently located between the airport and the riverfront area. Riverfront was a quick walk away, the room was fresh and clean, the service was always fast and friendly even though I was there during a holiday and they were supposedly short staffed. The restaurant/courtyard area was a great spot to take my time enjoying morning... More
