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.

Like this place very much, the environment is very green nature, surrounded by lot of green plants, can hear the birds walking on the room roof top and singing, very relaxing! The room is cozy and clean, comes with basic toiletries in the bathroom, but there is no television and tea making set in the room. Anyway there is spacious... More

We stayed here for a weekend to escape the gawai celebrations. There were no other guests during this weekend. It was not easy to find this this place as it has no sign boards pointing directions and no signboard outside. Once we found it we entered an oasis of peace. The garden is beautiful with a nice pool. The rajah... More

... if ever there was such a thing as a quick-getaway. The first thing you would notice walking into this stunner of a place, is the bluer than blue pool, right in the middle of the Village House. You would then be immediately put at ease with the surroundings, as the jazzy sounds of nature set into your reality and... More

We stayed at the Village House this past weekend and it was outstanding! I couldn't say enough about the friendliness of the staff or the unique design of the rooms. Best Kept Secret - One of the best things about the hotel that isn't really advertised is the beach. About a 2 minute walk through a short stretch of forest... More

I just felt energized after coming back from this trip staying at this place (even though it was just a short 3 nights stay). I think it's because how close it is with nature and away from Kuching city. It allowed me to slow down and look around. Take time to walk the Mount Santubong forest trek, have a cup... More

Our stay at the village house was the perfect start to our honeymoon. The staff are great and nothing is too much trouble, a special mention to Zin, Anselm and Elenor. It is quiet, serene and beautifully finished. Although we were a little further from Kuching, than we initially thought we wanted to be, the hotel was so good, we... More
