As I have stayed here before and Reddish organized a Guide for the Bario Loop trekking, I was surprised when Reddish stopped answering my e-mails. I had booked to stay at Bariew Lodge for three days to attend the annual Pesta Nukenen. Arriving at the tiny airport we expected to get picked up, but had to get other transport because... More

We had read good reviews of the Bariew Lodge and Reddish, the owner. He picked us up in his 4WD and were surprised when the entrance was a large green tarpaulin covering a rusty iron gate. We were the only guests. The rooms were OK if spartan. We had full board - lunch was passable. The eating area was reached... More
