The environment was excellent. beautiful view and bar area. I went there and got ignored for some minutes by the staff who never evens smiled. I got the room at the back. 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...

Basaga Holiday Residences is set in a lush, green landscape that feels like you're at the edge of a rain forest. Our room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. (Shower water could be hotter!) We loved the friendly house cat who would let you give him a good belly rub. The best part of Basaga is the...

An isolated, tranquil venue to relax and take refuge from the hustle & bustle of everyday life - Basaga Holiday Residences offers the luxury of an escape sanctuary, equipped with modern conveniences, surrounded by rustic charm. 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. Apart from good rates, the hotel is rustic, charming and serene. It is not far from the airport. We did shopping at the Main Bazaar. Visited the Sarawak Cultural...

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

Booked this 'boutique' type hotel on the strong reviews by other travellers but was disappointed to find a property that was not adequately maintained and appearing tired. Our rooms had a basic, rustic feel about them but the musty smell and tired appearance were not charming. Bathroom was terrible. Mould on tiles in shower, toilet seats were not cleaned underneath...

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
