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. You can walk across the golf course and be in the forest within minutes, or, for the species that made this site... More

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

Firstly make sure you book direct with the resort - their prices as of 05/14 are 220 MYR including taxes and breakfast for 2 pax for the PAR room and 243 MYR for the BIRDIE which is worth the extra few ringitt for the great view. A certain well known website publishes the room prices way over and makes you... More
