The deluxe room was very pleasant, clean with a hot shower and a nice balcony. There was a nice common area at the restaurant, the chapati was yummy and the place has some nice chairs directly at the water.

We stayed at Bagus for 5 nights in a twin room which is clean, spacious, light and airy with a good bathroom (there are lots of varieties of rooms so check a few before choosing!) . The homestay is right on the lake which is a perfect spot for swimming and taking in the nice scenery. There are plenty of free activities to do (canoe, pool table etc..) and the room is a reasonable price. Internet is at the bar area not in the room, and our room was located near the kitchen so there was a fair bit of noise in the morning (and we were always hungry because it smelt good!) The dance show was very lacking in enthusiam and as were the staff throughout our stay, it always felt an effort to ask/ order something and it looked impossible for them to smile! Great place to stay a few days but the staff let it down.

Room Tip: Have a look at a few rooms before choosing, very different room to room!

We booked this hotel last minute just before we visited Tuk-tuk. And it turns out to be a truly memorable stay! Especially the food! We're vegetarians and they served really great variety of food which tastes really good! Beds are okay. If you're going to be out a lot, it's not gonna be a big problem. Besides, you could always chill at the restaurant!

before I might forget it, I want to express my deepest sympathy for your kind and hostile service. I did appreciate every moment in your beautiful garden and highly liked all your food and beverages. Even though I could only talk to Erick I felt a great understanding and top teamwork at your lovely home. May all be stay healthy and together. I am sorry I could not find a guestbook. That's why I follow up with my email.
I miss all staff and send a big hug to each of them.

Room Tip: ...best garden around the whole lake...

We came here due to meeting Eric, one of the staff members, on the parapat ferry and it was the best decision we have made! I honestly think this is the best value homestay ever!
Our room was cheap 75,000 but it was clean, secure and comfortable not to mention you get a hot shower and western toilet.
The property itself is huge. Situated on the lake it has a big green lawn, chairs to sunbathe in, volleyball net, badminton net, Childs playground, kayak and a pool table. The restaurant area is a lovely place to relax in. Wifi is good.
The restaurant itself is amazing! Food is cheap, big and delicious! We never had a bad meal and pretty much never ate anywhere else. Staff are friendly and speak good English. They have a wide range of rooms to suit all budgets. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Eric for bringing us here, playing guitar for us and being an all round awesome guy!!!!
