We stayed here two nights in April 2018, and had a rental car from Miri airport. Google Maps (pre-downloaded) got us there. The lodge is located in a rural village, so we booked it "all found" -- that is, the price included all meals. When we visited Niah Cave (about 1 hour drive), they packed us a lunch. The room was comfortable, and the home-made food was delicious. You can only book by directly contacting them -- we used email. Mike, the proprietor, is a retired English pilot married to Esther from Borneo -- who is a very good cook. Tip: if you want to walk to the nearby beach (10-15 minutes), follow the instructions in Mike's printout (available laminated in plastic) exactly. Their "beach house" isn't actually at the beach, but in the woods about 50m short of the beach. Just go past it to the beach. The water is inviting, but my wife got stung by a jellyfish, so after that we just waded instead of immersing ourselves.

My husband and I booked the place with one thing in mind, getting away from all the hustle and bustle of our everyday urban life and relax our minds to somewhere secluded and relaxing. Treetops lodge had greatly offer that relaxation we had been meaning to have for a very long time. Getting to Treetops will be a challenge without any phone map as the road leading there is dark at night but we had no problem looking for it since we had GPRS in hand and Treetop Lodge has strategically placed their signage at the main junction along the Jalan Bakam road. Treetop is about an average of 30mins from Miri town and is quite out of the way from anything (no walking-distance minimart, restaurants etc). During our stay, Connie (and her lovable toddler, Tristan) had been nothing but accommodating and made our stay special and felt like home. Our room (Room No 4) condition exceeds our expectation where the mattress is very cosy, there is a remote air-conditioning AND also a remote ceiling fan in the room along with hot shower available 24/7. The room gives us the 'kampong'-vibe feels that we have been longing for. We had no serious mosquito-bitten incident within our room and our outside porch as the owner was thoughtful to leave a lit mosquito repellent outside, next to our front door. Their surroundings are well-kept with loads of greens and flowers. Breakfast served is just the basic hot beverage, toast & jams, fresh fruits from their garden and the all-time asian favourite instant noodles, maggi mee, either fry-cooked or the soup-based style noodle. (P.S: go for the fry-cooked! Delicious). If you want to have dinner here, you'll need to inform them in advance (we didn't since we had a car to drive out for dinners). There is a limit of internet usage per device, so be aware once you use them all up, you will no longer to have any more internet connection. We have not much to complain about it since we came here to switch ourselves off from our busy everyday life. Overall, I would highly recommend to people who is wanting to have a good getaway from their city life and connect with nature.

Our family of four stayed two nights at Treetops Lodge. Mike the owner picked us up at the airport and spent the ride patiently and intelligently answering our many questions. Once at the lodge we were provided a very comfortable room in a lovely country setting. The food was ample and high quality. For a very reasonable fee we were driven to Niah and picked up after a great day of exploring the park. We felt we received great value with our stay at Treetops and the owners offered great insider perspective on the area and its many activities. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for the sweet spot between a hotel and a Bed and Breakfast.

The owner told us to have our dinner before coming because there's no restaurant nearby. The lodge is quite far from the main road and might be difficult to reach if you come at night. I like the open bathroom concept where you can see the sky and moonlight while taking shower. The owners are so friendly. We had a long chat with Ester during breakfast before leaving. We are so inspired with her life story. Just around 10 minutes driving from this lodged, there is Tusan Beach, where there is a cliff that looks like a horse with a stunning sunset view and if you are lucky u will see 'blue tears' at night along the beach!

I stayed in Treetops Lodge along with two of my colleagues following a conference in Miri. We were looking for a couple of days of rest and relaxation before long flights home, and we certainly found it. I immediately had a good impression when upon arrival Mike, the owner, asked us how much we paid for our taxi from the previous hotel we were staying in town and proceeded to demand the driver return part of the money, which he eventually did, as he was trying to charge us almost double the normal price. This level of care was continued throughout our stay, and it was clear that Mike and Ester were truly concerned that we had a comfortable and care free stay. Mike was also a great source of information on the region and its history. We stayed in private suite with two bedrooms, a small kitchenette and sitting area, private bathroom and shower, and an outdoor sitting area. The accommodations were very comfortable and we were left wanting for nothing. The rest of the Lodge area was very pleasant, with a nice combination of traditional architecture and wide range of flora (some fauna from time to time as well). The food (we opted for both breakfast and dinner) was delicious and local. The location of the Lodge is convenient for visiting Lambir Hills National Park, which we did through transport organized by Mike for a reasonable price. There is also an option to visit the Niah Caves National Park, and access to the beach is very convenient (make sure to spray bug repellent for the sand flies!). In short, I highly recommend the Treetops Lodge. In terms of comfort, convenience and hospitality it's one of the best places I've stayed!

We stayed as a family of 3 with our 4 year old little boy and had an absolutely wonderful stay! Before we arrived we had been staying in the national parks which were great, but we fancied a bit more comfort and relaxation and that is just what we got! Mike the owner was really welcoming and set a bed up on the floor for Harry at no extra cost. We had a swim in their little pool which was just what we needed after all the hiking we had been doing - Mike also provided us with a nice cool beer for our swim which was perfect! The bedroom and bathroom were lovely with hot water and the most comfortable beds and pillows of our whole Borneo trip! The food was lovely and I was well catered for as a vegetarian and the views from the dining terrace were beautiful. In the evening we had hot chocolate on the terrace listening to the sounds of the bugs! We had a wonderful stay and wish we had been able to stay for longer!

Quaint country living that is close to the town will provide you a taste of Sarwsak as Mike,Connie,Ister, and Dennis welcome you to Miri. Basic accommodations in the longhouse will give a flavor of local living. It sits above a collecting pond that is home to feisty fish. Simple rooms with ceiling fans and mosquito nets greet you Robinson Curuso sytle as open ceilings linger to conversations next door. Expect a cold shower as water is collected via solar and the afternoon bird gets the worm. Dinner ($26 rinngit) is good but pricey compared to local food in town as well as drinks. Breakfast is free with your stay. A taxi into town costs approx. $33-35 ringgit; the owner charges $40. Across the road and short hike leads you to the beach and hut that you can use to relax the day away or a short jaunt to the waterfall.

We made a reservation 2 days ago to arrive today at his lodge.we took a cab for 60 Rm.when we arrived there the gate was locked and there was a sign that it was closed.when the cabdriver horned he didn't want to come out.finally he came and said we made a reservaation for the day before which was not true(always good to keep your conversationmails).So he did not want to take us in...it says enough about his personality for me.so we had to pay 60RM to get back to the center of Miri....so in total we lost 120RM. for us its not about the money but about feeling welcome....i am very angry and i dont understand this kind of people....so we will also sent a mail to lonely planet because he got a big adverisement in it wich he dont deserves... Maybe it was because we took his cheapest room . . . We will never know but what i do know is that i never send somebody to him

Response from TreetopsGH, Manager at Treetops Lodge
Responded 19 Nov 2015
Guests not booked and did not read e-mails advising them. Seemed to think they "had a right" to come in and stay - despite no staff, no food, no rooms prepared. We are forced to turn away such guests and suggest this "review" be ignored.
