Uber comes here easy. Walking distance to main Kuching sights. Although locals gasped that I walked everywhere. People of Kuching are truly magical people. Too friendly so...

The room smells moldy, and molds are everywhere. the door, the wall, the ancient aircond, and the bath area. Not to mentioned there was a chewing gum on...

We loved the friendly house cat who would let you give him a good belly rub. The best part of Basaga is the...

Tucked away and hidden secretly within the city itself, it is nestled by nature. The staff were very polite and helpful. The rooms were...

My wife and I had a great stay at Basaga Holiday Residences, 19-22 Jan 2017. It was recommended to us by longtime friends in Kuching. We did not regret our decision.

Overall is good, i like the peaceful environment, but the floor in the room got a little bit sticky. The breakfast should involve more preferences instead of only American breakfast style. Customer services are very friendly

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
