After a tiring 4 hour trip from the Orang Utan sanctuary followed by a twenty minute boat ride, it was lovely to get here and make use of the pool. It is a nice good sized pool with ample loungers. There are renovations going on near the pool, but it can only be for the good of future guests. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our vacation in Borneo, an absolutely amazing place. The drive up here from Kuching and the boat ride are absolutely worth it, the hotel is great, the staff is nice, very helpful, and attentive. The resort is located at a reservoir, which makes it a quiet and remote spot to hang out and...

After 2 nights jungle trekking we returned back here to join our friends who stayed here while we went to Nanga Sumpa and Lubok Kasai.

Short 20-25 minute boat ride to what can only be described as an idyllic location. Constructed in the manner of an Iban Longhouse with fabulous welcoming hospitality, outstanding local breakfast (or western breakfast if that's your preference) and coffee to die for. Wine, like most alcohol in Malaysia, is fearfully expensive for what you get but the house wine, even...

Friendly, helpful management team Great views (although not from the rooms - the authenticity of the Iban long-house style construction means that none of the rooms has a good view: they all look out onto a dark corridor. To get a view you have to walk out or sit in the restaurant) Wish the local staff were confident enough to...
