Stay in a longhouse

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 21, 2006

Rack rate was RM250++ onwards p/room p/night. I managed to find online promotions for only RM110++ from Hilton's official website. I expected a more local free, but not realizing the place is managed by Hilton - it is actually rather night end resort. There is absolutely nothing there but the resort - sleep there, eat there.

Hilton partners with Borneo Adventure for boat rides along the river to visit 'real' Iban long houses for RM120 onwards for half day. Be prepared to pay RM30++ onwards for meals at the restaurant. Daily buffet dinner for RM58++ to RM70++.

The Batang Ai lake is quiet and peaceful. Water is clean but nobody swims in it. I went for a kayak in the evening. We kayak to the middle of the lake and watched the sun set. There are several easy jungle trails behind the resort.

Unique Quality: The resort's 11 indigenous timber longhouses consist of 100 individually air conditioned guest rooms. The longhouses are built in the traditional Iban way, being raised on stilts with a covered veranda that runs the entire length of the house. They command breathtaking views of the lake. These rooms are fully equipped with modern amenities - a welcome luxury in the heart of the rainforest.

Longhouse Style: Enjoy your stay in this traditional native Borneo design 31m²/334sq.ft room with garden views and sliding patio door windows. Some rooms have adjoining rooms available. Special touches include tea and coffee making facilities.

Directions: There is a shuttle service that is available daily leaving Hilton Kuching at 08.00 and departing the Resort at 13.00. It takes about 4 hours drive to reach the Resort. The charges are RM126 per person return with a minimum of two people.

Beautiful exotic resort

Beautiful resort, probably the most luxurious in Malaysia! Rooms were large and decorated in a native Borneo design with huge windows. The grounds were lush with waterfalls, trails and a beautiful pool. Lounge and restaurant were accommodating, staff was friendly and attentive.

We took a memorable long boat ride to this exotic location. From here we got onto boats to Borneo, where yes leaches clung to my body & I saw the hugest spiders of my life & they did jump onto our bodies.

So Near........ But Yet SO Far...........

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel has the potential to be one of the best in Malaysia if not the Far East.

I mean there are not too many hotels in the world that are only accessible by boat and that have are gorgeous warm crystal clear waters surrounding them.

The rooms are built in traditional Longhouse style & are very comfortable. The facilities are excellent with nice reasonable size pool.

The hotel organizes local trips one being to traditional Iban village & another excellent trip is the Batang National Park. This involves a 2 hour trip on Longboat up and down rapids and deep into the rainforest by river, then a 2 hour trek through the forest to see the wildlife.

If it were not for staff letting the hotel & Hilton brand down in a big way this would one of the best.

The staff are recruited from local villages and trained at the hotel (not in its sister hotel in Kuching as they should be). As a consequence bad staff trains the new staff that just follow suit.

As you have no choice but to eat & drink in the hotel personally I think that they have raised the prices, it's not in comparison to the Hilton Kuching

One vital tip is, buy your own bottled water from the supermarket in Kuching or one the villages on four hour trip to Batang from Kuching. The hotel will charge you 13MYR for a 1.5 litre bottle, but you can pick up the same brand in a shop for 2MYR. The same also goes for soft drinks & beer.

Unique Quality: The best views you could ever wish for.

Amazing local and international food.

Gorgeous pool.

Excellent rooms & facilities.
