Kuching Travel - Basaga Holiday Residences

Hotels in Kuching have always been a bit bland. We had the Holiday Inn - which now has been re-branded Grand Magherita by the owner; Hilton Hotel - quite standard until its recent makeover; Merdeka Plaza, etc. Lucky for locals and visitors, there have been a wave of new hotel projects in town - and we are beginning to see some interesting developments. The Basaga Holiday Residences is one of the new generation of boutique hotels offering accommodation with more character then the run-of-the-mill hotel.

Basaga is located right in the heart of the city, along one of the major roads - Jalan Tabuan. However, due to the size of the property and its secluded location, once you enter the site it is possible to imagine you are much further away. It has a nice resort vibe to it.

The main reception building is converted from an old turn 0f the century Colonial mansion. The lobby, a nice terrace cafe and some private dining rooms including a wine room are located on the ground floor. On the upper floor are the mainhouse rooms. Most of the rooms are located in a separate 2-storey block which used to be a school barrack, as the property was once converted into a school.

It even has a large swimming pool. This place provides true simple luxury in an excellent location.


Overall Basaga is one of the most well-conceived boutique hotels in Kuching. The rates are so reasonable, you will not be doing yourself a favour if you don't give it a try. Here's a web link to get more details - Basaga Holiday Residences.
