I stayed at Basaga on a few occasions in July whilst I was taking part on a volunteer experience in Borneo at Matang Wlidlife Centre. I must say that for the room price which was roughly around £25 per night you really had a great deal. The rooms are spacious and always clean. The showers are lovely and beds are... More

Booked this place for my family to stay as I have stayed here once. The residence is like a hidden gem in Kuching city; this place is peaceful and quiet, has very beautiful nature surroundings, friendly and approachable staffs, and breakfast was simple yet delicious.

We were welcomed personally by the owner (John) and shown to our room. It was clean, comfortable, and fairly easy to access. A couple of points of constructive criticism: 1. I would recommend installing WIFI re-routers to have the access all parts of the buildlings/rooms. 2. Update menus at the bar with relevant pricing (old ones are outdated) 3. You... More

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.

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.

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
