While I did not stay there or even get past the gate at the road my experience was terrible. I wanted to play golf at the resort and after multiple attempts my hotel in Kuching was finally able to obtain the information (nothing on their website about golf reservations or rates) I made a tee time. After driving to the... More

We had great expectations arriving at Borneo Heights as the surrounding scenery is quite spectacular. However we found it quite expensive, for every activity there is a charge, even for a socalled "wellness walk"; the courtesy vehicle is not really "courtesy" if the resort charges RM25 per person for the trip down to the foothill to your waiting taxi. The... More

The first thing missing was my reservation! When I arrived the desk clerk told me there was no record of my reservation. I was able to produce an email I received from the resort confirming my reservation. In view of how few guests there were at the resort, the omission seemed inexcusable. Other missing things were a matter of personal... More

Getting there you have to go uphill the road with a very steep and twisting bends. So consider your options planning to get there. The resort is mainly catered for golfers with lots of golf course, and not much trekking can be done, but still the area is nice for a walk and jog. Really enjoyable. At 2300ft above sea... More

Huge under-utilized property with 18 hole golf course. My 2nd visit primarily for photography, the forest trails during day and night-time are highly recommended and again the highlight of my visit. I find the concept of vegetarian menu interesting, but the execution was average only, and there was too much marketing spin on the menu trying to sell the idea,... More
