Me and my wife stayed there for 3 days, the first days of our honeymoon. It was one of the best accommodation of our Malaysian trip, it was super! Very relaxing and quiet! The staff was very helpful and the food is very good. The room is simple but very cool and romantic, the bath clean and... most of all... More

We stayed here for a few days whilst in Borneo on a recommendation. It is a beautiful & chilled place to stay with high standards; if you're willing to pay the extra for the larger rooms it's definitely worth it. The staff organised our trips for us & gave good advice, which helped us make the most of our time... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights after our interesting visit to the Iban people in the jungle. We really could relax in this hotel as it is such a quite place. The hotel has a nice small pool and some little areas around the pool to sit. The rooms are very nice and quite big. Unfortunately there is... More

Was really surprised of the plc. Although its hidden but that ensures privacy. If you're looking to relax & chill this is the right plc to be. Really wished I stayed an extra night just to fully enjoy the hotel. Some advice: Bring insect repellent & call ahead for guide to the place.

Are you ready for a tranquil getaway without wailing babies, a karaoke bar, gift shops or even a tv in your room? The village house is the perfect place for a peaceful holiday. They have a medium sized swimming pool, an activity room (board games, book, a tv) and a bar. Other than that, its just you, your thoughts and... More

The Village House is one of those amazingly relaxing places where you don't actually have to leave at all during your stay. The staff are helpful, the food is tasty and cheap (by Australian standards), the rooms are comfortable and the pool is amazing. We were quite happy floating in the pool and relaxing on the banana lounges and hammocks... More

As the taxi took us further & further away from the city centre, we wondered if we made the right decision. Definitely yes, yes yes! If you're looking for rockstar treatment with a friendly, personal touch, this is the place to be. We didn't want to leave. There were only every two or three other couples around the pool /... More

I left Kuching a year ago having lived and worked here for more than 7 years without even knowing that this secluded holiday haven has been around here all along...until recently when my partner and I decided to come back for holidays and found this gorgeous resort on the website. The drive from Kuching town to the resort was pleasant... More

I loved the Village House - I would say it is my favorite hotel ever. The hotel is small and beautiful and has clearly been put together with love and attention. Staff (Zin and Anselm) were wonderful, food (local and western) delicious. The Village is dripping with charm and atmosphere - simply a wonderful place to spend a few days.
