Fairly dismal experience

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 4, 2010

I would not recommend it. It is noisy,the choice of food is very limited and the proprietor has no ethic of customer service.

Watch out for the taxi rip off on the way to the airport where they quote you one price and charge you another. If you don't pay up it can get quite nasty!

Unique Quality: The surroundings are very pretty and if it was professionally run there would be great potential.

Very poor food and hard to sleep

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 31, 2010

I would not recommend this to anyone. The accommodation is very noisy and food very dull. If you have a problem the owner seems to be more interested in having an easy life than sorting out the problem.

It is a long way out of Miri so you need to rely on the Tree Tops taxi drivers who try to charge you 30% more than the owner specifically quotes you.

"Water Village" Common Areas and Rooms

by written on April 18, 2009

Treetops has a "Water Village." It is a longhouse style dorm building located down the hill from the main building, connected by a boardwalk and stairs (so it is not really handicapped accessible). It sits on stilts in a pond stocked with tilapia. There are separate rooms with fans but no air-conditioning. The beds have mosquito nets. There are two very clean, open-air, shared bathrooms, each with a sink, flush toilet and hot water shower. A room costs RM35 ($9.50).

Main Building Common Areas and My Room

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 18, 2009

The main building has verandas upstairs and downstairs. The pool, used book library and ping pong table are located on the downstairs veranda. The dining area is outdoors on the upstairs veranda. There will normally be no one at the front desk. If you get a soda, beer or bottled water from the cooler, just jot it down on the form with your room number.

A Great Place to Relax

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 17, 2009

If you want to party, the Treetops Lodge is not the place for you. If you want to relax in a beautiful place, it is the perfect location, especially if you have young kids. It gets excellent reviews on TripAdvisor (that is how I found it). Mike, Iring and Connie provide outstanding service and the lodge itself is clean, comfortable and is surrounded by two acres of flowering plants and tropical fruit trees. You may swim in the small pool, fish in the tilapia pond and/or play ping pong. It is a short walk (15 min) to an almost-empty, clean beach (see the travelogues and videoclips). An air-conditioned room with an ensuite bathroom cost RM100 (~$27) and a longhouse style dorm room with fan and a shared bathroom, RM35 (~$9.50). There are no nearby restaurants, but the home-cooked, set meals are delicious and cost RM5 - RM16 ($1.50 - $4.50). Laundry is RM10 per load and they do an excellent job. Treetops gets my highest recommendation!

Unique Quality: If you want to experience the longhouse culture in former Borneo headhunter territory, Mike provides a reasonably priced, adventure tour. This tour can also be used to go to Mulu National Park "the back way." See my State of Sarawak tips for information about when I took this tour to Mulu.

Directions: In Siwa Village, 20 km. south of Miri, East Malaysia

Clean quiet and friendly

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 17, 2006

Had 3 nights here got free pickup from the airport the rooms were spotless and the food was outstanding. The english owner is very friendly and helpful. However there is nothing to do here as the place is in the middle of nowhere. Most people just use this place for a day or twos rest on the way to other places.

Directions: From Miri, take a number 13 bus from outside the Visitors Infornation Centre and get off at the very last stop. The lodge is about 10 minutes walk up the hill..
