I visited Manana for the THIRD time in March this year, and once again, LOVED IT :-) The staff, including quite a few newbies, made me feel welcome from the minute I arrived at the kampung jetty. There's been a few improvements since my last visit; The menu is more varied and extensive - loved the roti canai They have... More

I stayed in Manana from 2nd till 5th March. And on the last day that I had to check out, I was very tempted to extend my stay. I had the best time relaxing. No network coverage nor wifi, I had no distraction but to just take time and enjoy the nature. They have very basic amenities, which I had... More

I was fortunate enough to stay at 'Manana' during my trip through Borneo and stayed there from the 12th-15th February 2014. Staying in chalet nos. 8 i was just yards from the sea as was all the accommodation. Although i was nearest to the jungle backdrop i only ever saw an earthworm and a small centipede type 'crawlie'. I spent... More

After spending two weeks in the national parks and diving in Borneo we decided to hang out in Manana after we heard about it in the lonely planet. The area is beautiful, however what we experienced was a little nightmare. We didnt get picked up from the hotel as discussed before, However, we were able to organize a taxi which... More

I just stayed at Mañana with a couple of friends. I don't think we have visited any place on the planet where we were made to feel less welcomed. Rooms were shabby and bathrooms even shabbier, not to mention that there were as many creatures crawling around in them as were outside. Not sure if sheets are changed between guests.... More

We recently stayed in Mañana for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. We stayed in a chalet for 120RM a night which was lovely, very basic (no hot water) but just what we wanted and right on the beach. Awi the manager was lovely and looked after us well. Food was delicious, although they tend to run out of... More

My Partner and I stayed at Manana over NYE for 4 nights. We stayed in a beachfront villa - simple but perfect. We weren't expecting top notch luxury, but the simplicity is part of the beauty. These villas are right on the beach and I would recommend paying the extra (RM180/night) for this room. There was a mixture of young... More

Manana is a great place to relax for a couple of days. The staff is very friendly and we just loved the food. The chalets and villa's on the waterfront are basic but charming and the hammocks are perfect for relaxing and reading! Don't expect luxury and you'll have a great time here!

We stayed for tow nights at that really nice place! The beach is amazing and the staff is friendly. But I think it is a bit overpriced. We stayed at a standard bungalow with fan and private bathroom. The bungalow was basic, big and we loved the hammocks. But 120 Ringgit per night, excluding breakfast is to much for this... More
