I went there just to spent the weekend. It is a quiet place when out of guests. But can be noisy especially the family guests. We stay in a chalet room. Evrything is fine. But the tv channel is out of service. They have a small swimming pool here. Breakfast is good but I wish the staff the would smile more.😊 smile dude, it wont cost u any penny.

Have just spent three nights in this serene hideaway, just 15 mins from airport! Perfect place to unwind and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's a beautiful spot to sit and watch the sunset. There are many shaded areas to sit around the hotel, to read, listen to the rythmn of the waves, or just admire the beauty of the surroundings.  As mentioned.elsewhere, the beach is littered further along but not directly outside this quaint little hotel. James, is a very.friendly.host and his.staff were only too happy to help me.  There are larger shops (Golden dragon and GT Mart)a mile away. I walked along the main road to get there but it's probably better to hop in a cab or get the little bus that stops along the road.  There's a wonderful cafe along.the.beach called Anjung Soka where you can get home cooked.food and wonderful juices; watermelon carrot, guava, and also the.coconut au naturel! Shockingly cheap!  I loved the seaside traveller's inn so much, i plan to return at the end of my trip to experience this tranquil little haven for.one more day, which.would be a perfect end to a colourful trip round Borneo.

Dear Michelle, Greetings from the seasiders! My apologies for the delay. Your kind comments about our humble place is much appreciated. One can buy stuffs at Kinarut and Sabindo Lok Kawi towns not too far away and also the new township in between where Golden Dragon and G Mart are located. I too like Anjung Soka and we support local businesses. You may like to visit the tamu (local market) at Kinarut on Saturday morning during your next stay :) Hope you visit Borneo again someday. Thanks for communicating. Cheers...James (5/6/2018)

I stayed with my family (inc Kids ages 2-8) for 1 night. Kids wanted to play sand so I let them but sadly it was full of rubbish and it is dangerous because there are pieces of broken glasses. It quit not safe for u to let your things (money, Phone etc) at your room because it is open to anybody passed by. Strangers person always keep walking along the beach. So, Please keep your things very well. Breakfast is so disappointed. We only served with Fried Rice, Fried Noodle, and Bread, with coffee and Milo (Milo served in a little pot. First come first served). And if you late, you'll be missed your breakfast. The room is Okay for me, Air-Condition is Okay. Thanx.

Dear Ms Badrisyah Balqis, Greetings from Kinarut! Sorry for responding only now. Thank you for staying with us in March. We have taken note about the rubbish and broken glasses, our maintenance team may have yet to cover the area that your kids were playing at at that time, but you will be happy to know that we clean and rake our seaside area daily. Room-guests should shut and lock the door when leaving the room and valuables can be handed over to our front office for safe keeping. The fence along our sea front is erected for security and safety purposes. Kindly be informed that our complimentary breakfast is CONTINENTAL (a light breakfast of coffee and bread rolls) - we give local coffee & tea, bread, butter, jam, fruits (sometimes juice too), oats, fried rice &/or fried mee/meehoon. Milo is made available when there are children staying and refilled (upon request) when finished just like the other items. Available from 7.30am to 9.30am. Breakfast Egg Menu available by order; half/hard boiled, bulls-eye, scrambled/omelette @ RM4.00 to RM4.50 per order Glad that your room and air-conditioning are fine. Do try the newly renovated rooms upstairs the main building on your next stay - Deluxe single/double and triple @ now RM150.00 and RM180.00 respectively (promo rate). Hope to be of service to you again sometime soon. Many thanks again for communicating with us. Cheers....James (11/6/2018)

I have been coming to this establishment systematically for 20 years now. We would come and stay overnight once every two years when we come back to Malaysia and I was sad to notice that they lacked attention and client service. When my brother made the booking he specifically told them that this was a 15th anniversary celebration and they did nothing, no gesture whatsoever. They could have offered freshly cut coconut that grew on their ground and that would have made a huge impact that they cared but NOTHING. The menu has not been changed all these years and the breakfast was SAD. Bread for toast, butter and jam, fried noodles, pineapples with coffee, tea and milk. That's it. I have enjoyed coming here for the scenery but that's about it. Maybe this loyal customer will now start looking for other places to stay next time........
