we booked two nights, and decided to stay one night more.
It is a lovely place. One of the best places in Kuching.
The staff are very friendly and I feel very welcoming.
Highly recommended and I would stay their again by my next visit in Borneo.

We had two adjoining rooms (one at the back one at the front) and the 5 steps from front door to pool is brilliant. I loved the outdoor shower (there is an indoor one as well).

The restaurant is very good but don't bother with the "beef bacon" for breakfast.

The desk staff is very helpful and helped us with a number of trips in and around Kuching. We didn't join the hotel's own trips but I hear they are very good.

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone on any budget visiting Kuching. I tried a slightly cheaper hotel for one night and it was not worth it at all. The pool, courtyard and dining areas at the Basaga are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, and the food is delicious. Easy to walk to the waterfront from here and the staff is very helpful in arranging excursions.

We have stayed 3 nights in basaga, and would recommended to anyone!! The rooms are good, the swimming pool is nice and quiet, and the restaurants serves good food! From the hotel we did 2 excursions, one to the smengogh oerang utan and one to Bako NP. Both were amazing and must see! The guide Brandon helps you with everything and tells you a lot information! The hotel is situated 2 km outside Kuching centre, this is very relaxing! Enjoy your stay!

We book 2 rooms and stay 3 nights over here. When we first check in and show us the room, oh…my god… they give us both room which really SHOCK me. Both room are at the back of the building and look like full of mosquito and quite scary. After discuss with the counter’s lady, she upgrade our room to the front of swimming pool. Thanks to her on the room upgrade without paying extra.
The room are clean and big, the small swimming pool just outside the room. No phone / interphone in the room. The free internet access not so strong and always disconnected.
I like the fried noodle / meehon during the breakfast.
If you are driving, you need to set your GPS to the hotel address and not the hotel name.

Room Tip: do not pick the courtyard room...full of mosquito / quieter / dark and open air bathroom

I stayed in Basaga for 5 days during a recent trip with friends and it was in itself one of the highlights of our trip. From the moment Brandon picked us up at the airport, we knew we were in the right hands. The place is beautiful, the rooms were beautiful, the food is amazing but more importantly the STAFF ARE AMAZING, especially Brandon. Brandon on his own made our stay in Kuching memorable and helped us plan our activities (we rented scooters, went kayaking, orangutan sanctuary, massages, amazing seafood dinners etc.). He gave us all the inside info and help we needed to truly experience Kuching.

And even though we had to move rooms a few times because of unavailability, I would still NEVER consider staying anywhere else in Kuching. WORTH IT. Love this place.

Thanks for making our trip so memorable!

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms overlooking the pool were our favorite.
