When the first time I came, I can't say a thing. All the things that I could do is just feeling the fresh air. The other thing was the amazing view from top of the hills. You could also see the border area between Indonesia and Sarawak at Kalimantan view point. This resort is very recommended.

Too expensive to.take taxi to go there for round trip. Most taxi said they don't dare to go up, or they will charge a lot more. Suggest to take taxi to reach extrance only. Then take resort transport to go uphill. Children got half price. Not much activities around the resort. A small flower garden, small organic vegi farm, small... More

The resort is only about 60km from Kuching city centre. You may park your car at the car park at the foothill entrance and use the transport provided by the resort to go up the plateau (20 minutes up hill) at RM25 per pax one way. although certain parts are quite steep, normal car can actually climb it (even 1000cc...

Best Place for refresh yourself and for relaxing. not many attractions, flower garden, Grapes farm & organic farm not well-maintained, restaurant food needs some improvement too. Steep road, quite risky for inexperienced driver. no Television in room and no WiFi as well.

I wouldn't put anyone off of staying at this place, it has great Trekking, Birding and a fantastic Golf Course [I am not a golfer but this course looks so interesting]. It also offers the prospect of just getting out into the fresh air of the foot hills. But I would say one or two nights is enough. Once the... More

I chose this resort for easy access to rainforest for birdwatching and seeing wildlife generally. I stayed at the Clubhouse and it proved admirable: comfortable, with friendly, helpful staff and a good variety of food on the menu.

The resort itself is absolutely beautiful and has great gold course! In fact this is pretty much the only entertainment that you can have there besides trekking and a bus tour of surroundings. The place is so peaceful and you can see the start at night. The staff is friendly, although their knowledge of English is quite poor. The food... More
