We stayed here for two nights so we could go and visit the Iban tribe in one of their longhouses. It is about 180 miles from Kuching but our guide provided us with lots of interesting facts along the way. A nice boat trip across the lake to the resort which comes into view showing off all the accommodation based...

This is the 2nd time I visited Batang Ai (my first visit was 2 years ago) and I still fell in love with the place. It's so calm which makes me forget about the hectic and busy life in the city. Below are my comments for improvement : - Rooms are large but the lighting are bit dim. Furthermore, the...

The location of this hotel is heavenly and the staff superb - this is why I am giving 4 stars. HOWEVER, it does need a little bit of TLC and lots of the communal areas are grubby - corners of the communal rooms and toilets need a good clean and the cushions in reception dirty. Food average but need to...

This hotel longhouse has now been taken over, and many of the staff are from the Iban tribes in the area, so this helps them to keep living in their own longhouses in the traditional way. Many Iban have been in training for the tourists but still keep their identity. The hotel is built on the side of the lake,...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The resort rooms are built in the style of a traditional longhouse. We were in a duplex room with a lounge, bedroom and 2 bathrooms. The rooms are wood clad. There was plenty of space and the bed was large and comfortable. The room was clean. It was however, a bit dated. The maroon...

We had a great time staying at this resort. The boat ride to the hotel was great and seeing the long houses was a great experience. We tried the blow dart and almost got a bullseye! Dinners were great. We also had an amazing massage. Loved the place. Would definitely come back.

It is a long drive coming from Kuching, but it is worth a visit. The hotel is a bit old and you can see they have some difficulties keeping the standards as high as during the Hilton era, but it is still worth to go and stay at Aiman Batang Ai. Especially to visit the long house. Seeing how these...

Aiman Batang Resort has the shape of a Longhouse located in the Batang Ai Lake. The hotel needs much maintenance, old style bedrooms, old style bathrooms which need to be refurbished. Personnel is kind and available. Food is good and served in pleasant way.
