Wonderfully friendly staff, air-conditioned rooms with hot showers. Nice bar and excellent mix of good value Indonesian and western food. Nice swimming pool and shaded pool terrace. Lovely decor and plants surround a large, quiet, comfortable terrace are where you can eat your breakfast and relax.

I was told that the property is about 125 years old and was once a school, so that meant that I was probably sleeping in one of the classrooms or a staffroom. I stayed in a spacious room at the main building. I loved that Basaga was nicely decorated with local crafts and lots of healthy green plants, which makes...

Basaga was perfect for us, close to the city so we get around and go to the places we wanted but not in the centre so it was peaceful, it almost didn't feel like you were in a city! The staff are very friendly especially the reception staff, who can't do enough to help you. The food was great and...

Lovely house, nicely converted to a hotel with an excellentrestuarant/bar, full of character. We stayed in a small (but comfortable) double room (with good airco and ceiling fan) at the back of the new block, with a private courtyard and open shower. Nice idea, and very quiet, but a bit small and in need of a bit of renovation. Staff...

I was in Basaga with two of my friends for four days. We stayed in main building in second floor (rooms 28 and 32 ). My room was very spacious with really huge bed. Just one thing was not so good. The cleaning staff should ventilate rooms much more often, my first impression was "oh my god, what is that...

Stayed here for a week with my wife and one of our friends. We stayed in the main building, which is a lovely old Brooke-era house with hardwood floors and nice verandahs. It is beautifully kept and full of character - at the same time very clean and well-appointed. The rooms are very comfortable with a/c and fans. The hotel...

Lovely hotel with quiet well kept gardens surrounding the pool which was bliss to dive into after a hot day in town. The staff were very friendly and helpful, coming to find us soon after our arrival to see if we wanted to join the (free) outing in the hotel minibus to Satok Market. They organised laundry for us, and...

Lovely hotel with nice bar and restaurant. Very good service. Our room was quite old fashioned in its style with nice wooden floors and an open air bathroom - that might sound odd but actually was really nice. We would definitely use this hotel again.

An interesting hotel converted from a former school and with a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere and comfortable rooms. If you don't like modern high rise developments this is the place for you. The grounds are full of luxuriant plants giving the impression of a little oasis. The staff were always helpful, friendly and responsive to queries and requests.

We all stayed at Basaga 3 years ago when it was all new and was delightful. This time it has been very disappointing. It is starting to look worn already - the pool was always full of leaves, 3 days of cold showers and a damp wood smell in the rooms. The setting is still lovely and the beer ice...

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
