It took a fair drive to reach, approximately 30km from Kuching. A minimal fee of RM5 chargeable per person to enter. Quite natural as one need to cross a small river to get to the small hot spring. There are simple toilet and washing area. However, it was not very well maintained. Suggest to bring swim wear, food and drink... More

if they had just left it like it originally was maybe it would have been better? without the stones surrounding it. the big pool itself is scalding hot, you cant get in it for more than 2 seconds for fear of 2nd degree burns but definitely a beautiful pristine setting.

I like this hot spring because it still maintain as a nature spot where you can enjoy yourself in the clear and cool stream as well as the hot spring. I find the larger pool the hottest and we spent most of our time there. It would be good if we can soak in the cold stream but we did... More

accessed by going down a track and for pools you have to wade the river, hard to reach for less active, pools ok but scummy, interesting to see.

We went to the hot springs on a Monday afternoon after visiting Annah Rais village- there was no one else there! It was absolutely beautiful! The hot springs can be super hot so we spent an hour or so just dipping between the spring and the icey river next door with little fish cleaning our feet! Great way to end... More

Hotspring is very near to my Homestay village, Annah Rais Longhouse, Bidayuh Traditional Longhouse. Can reach by jungle trekking (2hrs), walking (less than 1hour), by car (less than 5mins) from the Longhouse. Used to go there when I was a kid, not easy that time as we go there by river, remember my slipper disappear in minutes. Hot Spring is... More

It's a very unique experience for us as the hot spring is located in the middle of a stream. Waters are crystal clear and one can even see fishes swimming around the pebbles and rocks. The only set back is that the bathrooms needs a little make over with a proper amenities for visitors to shower after dipping in the... More

This is not a SPA Resort. Its more like a hot spring in the middle of a River. We were heading to Annah Rais Longhouse and ended up visiting here instead. There is a small stall selling drinks outside. There are shower and changing room facilities in a public toilet style. The route to the hotspring is sandy so slippers... More

The spring is a bit far from Kuching, close to the border of Indonesia. We went there on the same day with our visit to Semmengoh Wildlife Centre. After arriving the boathouse, it will take another 10 min drive to get there. They have changing room and toilet, but lots of mosquitos with minimal maintenance. We didn't bring along swimming...

Clear water if you are thinking of dipping your body in but I wish that the part of the rotenburo could be more managed. Toilets are in acceptable condition. Water in the rotenburo should be changed regularly or else it will be like Panchor ...
