  •   This place looks like nothing has been done to it since it was built 25 years ago! Including the pool filter!
    The setting is amazing and it’s such a shame, as the buildings would have been something else in its day.
    The food was very nice and the staff seem to be trying to be positive.

  •   Very relaxing place, has swimming pool, all meals are buffet, WiFi only works in lobby, rooms are big and spacious , complementary water in room which is great for hot days. Staff are super helpful and kind.
    Scenery is breathtaking and very lunch. Loved this place.

  •   The resort is old and restaurant is not very good organized, a la carte is advisable. Location makes up for all of that. It is an amazing place. The spa is also good. Visited the lonhouse with longboat. Staff is very shy and the pool is not clean. Still an amazing experience!!

  •   First of all you take an antiquated boat out to the resort then have to climb nearly 100 steps with your luggage to be met by a dour looking guy serving a fruit juice.

    You are told what room you're in then you have to find your own way to it.

    I reported a flickering fluorescent light that was not fixed during the 2 nights we stayed.

    The room was also very hot on arrival, no pre occupation cooling done.

    Had what appeared to be a nice evening meal, steak cooked to order, it was inedible, could not even cut it with the knife. Was offered an alternative but opted out.

    Second even meal was a buffet as there were large groups to be catered for. Was an OK buffet but nothing special and managed to cobble together a meal.

    Breakfasts were OK too, the egg counter was a guy who really looked unhappy in his work,

    The pool was in a nice setting but there is no pool 'service'. Have to lug your own sunbed mats and try to find someone to get towels, no food or drink service at the pool. They really are missing a trick here.

    Leaving was a similar routine, no porterage or help, just lug your gear down the steps to the boat and then escape.

    The only reason, as far as I can make out, to come here was to visit the Iban long houses, other than that just don't bother.

    Pity there's no Iban longhouses (as far as I know) nearer to Kuching which is about a 5 hour drive to Batang Ai.

    A big mistake spending over the odds to come here.

  •   This is the most beautiful place I've ever stayed. When you cross the lake by boat and see these lodges rising, it feels like you arrive in paradise. It's like a dream to me! It is true that the infrastructure is getting a little bit old and is not so well maintained sometimes. However, I find the resort well cleaned. You find everything you need, you can go pooling, play pingong, go for walks around the resort, watch the beautiful sunset, have a drink at the bar. The swimming pool is also very clean. The food in the restaurant was ok, but could be better though. I think it might be an idea to offer less dishes since many things on the menu are often not available. I had a massage at the wellness center which made me feel even more as if I were in heaven. Big thanks to the young man who did the massage! He was very caring and likeable. I will never forget my stay here, it was just amazing. The location is the best you can find.

  •   It’s a 5-hour drive from Kuching and honestly not worth the hassle. True, it’s peaceful but when you arrive there’s no one to help with your bags but loads of staff upstairs offering a welcome drink. The food is mediocre at best and service leaves a lot to be desired. We booked a guided tour for the canopy walk and there was no guide available, so we went on our own (which was easy enough). We decided to leave a day early; and they almost charged us for the extra night!

  •   The resort is a 5 hours drive from Kuching ( 275 kms(. The road is under construction and will be finished by 2023. Shaken, not stirred is the experience of our trip to the resort. But you need to go there as a starting point to the Iban people in the rainforest.
    From the resort is a 2 hour boat trip by canoe. Sitting in the canoe is good for twenty minutes, but then it is annoying. The hotel needs maintenance, which is not done by the present management. It is clearly visible and that is a pity. location is fabulous. The food is okay, but nothing particular. Staff is however very friendly and helpful.
