Reviewed 23 December 2015

First to get to know this resort, i am glad that Sarawak has one to be compared to Cameron Highlands or other resorts in Peninsulars. However, when the four of us try to get there, the roads are terrible and scary (we have reached Aman 6) with zero maintenance has been done which later we decided not to proceed with...

Dear r0wena11, Pleasant Greeting from Borneo Highlands Resort.

Reviewed 14 December 2015

Not knowing what this place has to offer, it was a pleasant experience coming in with little to no expectations. Going up to the highlands or mountains isn't anything new to me, so the drive up was what was expected. The resort provides a shuttle service from the foothill as it can be somewhat dangerous to inexperienced drivers who wants...

Reviewed 15 October 2015 via mobile

The location of the resort is perfect for nature lovers. Located on a hill top with beautiful vistas all round. The only problem is the owner seems to left the resort to rot. For RM449 a night I definitely did not expect to see a Broken toilet seat or bedroom full of bugs.

Visited this place April 2014 and it was an amazing experience for me. Ideal for those who love natural beauty. Highly recommended for nature's lover and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Very calm but when I go to Jacuzzi and sauna, both not function properly. If it is fully functional I will give...

We booked the birdie room which comes with king sized bed and ample room space and it was as described. The room was both cozy and designed to allow cool air circulation.
