We stumbled across this hotel by chance after being deeply disappointed and cancelling our reservation with Damai Beach Resort. As soon as we walked through the door I knew this was the place. The host came out to greet us and we enjoyed a refreshing welcome drink. It's a fantastic place for couples. Very relaxing, chilled with great food. I... More

Changed my mind at the last minute and booked the village house rather than a hotel in the city. The best decision I have made in ages. Arranged a shuttle service from the airport as arrived in the evening and had no idea where I was going. After about a 40 minute drive turned off along an unlit track and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The staff members deserves a raise and a bonus. They have been the friendliest staffs I've experienced. Polite. helpful, and attentive to your needs. The place is quiet and really serene, It's well kept, well maintained, and very clean. It's indeed a beautiful place. With that said, there are some rules in the place to... More

Based on Malay architecture, the boutique cottages are just what a nature lover and modern day traveler seeks. The house is tastefully stocked with Borneo art antiques, with an extremely friendly staff, blends with the natural surrounding provides peace of mind & soul throughout the stay, in the Santubong peninsular area. We stayed for 3 days, also loved its b'fast... More

The a Village House is well positioned on the Santubong for accessing local attractions. It is also only 100 metres from a windswept beach which is lovely for early morning walks. The bird watching is great. The accommodation is really very nice. The design of the place, with all rooms facing inward, overlooking the pool, creates an intimate and friendly... More

My wife and i found that the village house in Santubong was one of the most memorable and special places we have stayed. It is however, by way of what makes it so great for couples, i imagine, not a place for single people or for families. The village house is a series of very attractive rooms all around a... More

Have stayed here numerous times, never disappointed. Keep it up, Village House Team! Facilities are clean and spacious, quiet areas hidden away here and there for thinking or writing. Excellent food, and a pretty well-stocked recreational room. No children here, so the pool remains civilised at all times... Am looking forward to my next visit already...

This idyllic little boutique resort is just a 30-minute ride from Kuching, near the foot of Mount Santubong. It’s on a quiet lane leading to the seaside, in a secluded and tranquil spot surrounded by the lush greenery of the rainforest. Village House sits in an area comprising only 1.5 acres. However, in no way does it feel cramped or... More

My boyfriend and I returned to a cold England today after staying at the Village House for five days, after a rather hectic two-week exploration of Brunei and Malaysia. The Village House, and the surrounding area was the ideal relaxing end to our holiday. There are plenty of places to explore nearby; two beautiful beaches, local villages where the people... More

This is definitely a place for relaxing. Despite the rainy weather during our stay, we had a wonderful time at the premise. Waking up in the morning listening to birds chirping and sounds of trees swaying is one of the thing you can hardly get in the city hotel. Staff are helpful and friendly as well . The ala carte...
