Restaurant & Facilities
Villa IDEAS’ rooftop restaurant is unique for Bangladesh. It is a thatched roof with an inside woven matting ceiling, brick walls interspersed with antique carved wooden walls built in the same traditions as houses of yesteryear. It is set in garden surrounds with water features and fishponds. We only serve freshly cooked food in keeping with the tradition of Ma’er ranna or mother’s cooking.
Villa Ideas is a beautiful place to stay. We recommend the Villa to the German Government and our Business Community. It is a very nice place for functions as well.
It appealed to me because they advertised traditionally furnished suites at what seemed bargain rates. Furthermore, they are located in the diplomatic area where many of much of my work was to take place. If you are on journey in Dhaka, do consider staying at this excellent and very different hotel.
I have been traveling to Bangladesh all year on business trips. Major Hotels are great but after many weeks they start to feel very clinical. Villa Ideas (formerly Ideas Manzil) was recommend by a local contact and I should have looked for a change earlier.
I have explored other options for my intermittent stays — other guest houses, furnished flats, hotels, private suites in people’s homes, and sharing flats with mates — but find this choice the best for my needs.
I stayed here for two weeks while working. The very best part was being able to order dinner and have it in the roof top cabana each night. The staff were really wonderful.
