We absolutely loved our stay at The Kebun. When we arrived there, we were shocked by how beautifully situated and decorated the entire compound is. Every attention to detail is considered. Janelle cooked delicious meals and always had a big smile on her face. The car allowed us easy access to all the sites in the area. Thank you for... More

A great place to stay to get a real long-house experience. Food was fantastic, all local dishes some spicy some not but all tasty. Adrian and Jannel were a great hosts and could not help us enough. If you want a hotel experience it is not for you but if you want a real traditional Kuching experience you have found... More

We spent 6 nights in Adrian's Bungalow at the Kebun and absolutely loved the experience. The Bungalow was rustic but very comfortable with everything we needed including a private verandah with hammocks. Jemillah and Adrian looked after us really well. We were out each day so didn't have lunch but a delicious dinner was delivered to us each evening in... More

This is the place to stay if you want to stay in the countryside, be close to nature, want personalised attention and want to explore Sarawak. Nothing is too much trouble for Adrian: he even went back to the airport for us to collect our bags when they did not arrive on the same flight as us in error. All... More

The Kebun is hand down the best place you can stay in Sarawak. Why would you want to stay at a boring hotel in Kuching? At the Kebun we were looked after like royalty by Adrian and Jeneil, constantly delivered delicious food in abundance and loved navigating ourselves around the area in the car provided. With four fun-loving kids in... More

We just spent an excellent 8 nights at The Kebun at Adrian's bungalow. If you are looking for 5* luxury or a boutique hotel this is probably not for you. It is rural and rustic place, with lots of dogs and chickens (and yes, some mosquitoes), but it is a place of real character, and a perfect base for visiting... More

Wanted to visit The Kebun for the longest time as we heard great reviews from a friend. Finally made it this year for my birthday! We stayed at The Guest House, a nice little, self-contained house just right by the chill lounge. We were picked up at the airport and when we reached The Kebun, we were welcomed by lovely... More

My partner and I stayed at the longhouse for 3 nights and thought it was a very cool experience, but were very glad we did not stay any longer. Perhaps because we stayed close to the low season, we felt we were a little neglected by the staff at times. We never met the owners, Adrian and Olivia, and when... More

We recently stayed in Olivia's Bungalow with our three children aged 10, 7 and 4 and had an amazing time. The food is fantastic (oh the excitement of undoing the tiffin tin every evening to find out what we had for dinner), everyone is so friendly and helpful and the surroundings are beautiful. The children were made to feel so... More
