This hotel was used by our travel agency as basis for exploring some nearby parts of Sarawak. Apart from the wonderful Sarawak Cultural Center, which is 5 minutes walk away, you will need transport arranged as it is well outside Kuching and adjacent towns. The location insiode a rainforest reserve is wonderful and the (almost natural) rainforest pool original. We had a large treehouse which was spacious, well serviced and very clean. Definitely the best aspect of this hotel. The staff are very nice and committed but somewhat inexperienced. However, the restaurant was well below our usual standard, mainly serving - at best average - buffet food. One evening we were apparently the only guests and got to chose from the a la carte menu which was quite a step up in quality and

We were grateful for all the reviews we had read on Tripadvisor before arriving at the resort. Absolutely every one of them turned out to be helpful. We went along with low expectations and therefore were not disappointed. What a shame! The place has so much potential!

First the good: location fantastic, the only noise is the crashing of the waves, the insects, birds and animals in the jungle, the rain and thunder, amazing. I stayed in a treehouse and it was exactly what I wanted, a balcony surrounded by trees and jungle plants. My treehouse had a functioning A/C and a good shower with hot water. The jungle paths around the place are lovely and you will see amazing plants and wildlife. The bad: oh lord where to begin? Basic training of staff would help, so that at least one person in the place knows what there job is; nobody seems to know what they should. Like others have commented I went to ask about activities, the reception staff knew nothing or told me that most of the activities weren’t available. One ventured to tell me best go

My friend & I stayed at the treehouse for 3 nights. The cabin’s really cosy & blessedly, mosquito free. Water pressure for the shower is great too with adequate hot water. If there’s only 2-3 people staying at the lodging at any time, then meals will be ala carte - which thankfully, my friend & I got to enjoy for 2 days before more people joined & the meals became buffet-style which weren’t as great. In fact, you need to reach earlier just so you can catch most of the buffet. Kudos to the chef for the amazing meals we had there! For 2 days, our packed food (chips, cup noodles) were scavenged while we were out, leaving the room in a mess & the staff told us it was the squirrels so I advise anyone who stay here to keep all food locked in your suitcases. The transport was a

We stayed for 3 nights in a treehouse. It was clean,tidy and air conditioned. The houses could do with a freshen up and deep clean. The resort itself is tranquil. Nice walks in the rainforest and the 2 beaches are lovely and we had them all to ourselves. The staff couldn't be friendlier or helpful. At times it felt as if we were the only guests there so the food options were limited.
