Treetops is NOT a resort (as described by one unflattering and undeserved review). It is a very small, tucked-away peaceful lodge in picturesque rainforest surroundings. Owners Mike and Esther are pleasant hosts, and were always attentive to our needs. We were two couples who booked the two rooms overlooking the longhouse as a package to include breakfast and dinner.Accommodation was... More

The Laundry charge was for two rooms and 4 people; it is based on the local rate of RM 5 per kilo. Sometimes with muddy clothes from the jungle, it is necessary to do two washes to remove the worst first. Then at the end, every item has to be neatly folded and returned to its respective owner. The whole... More

Lovely unique lodge for an escape slightly off the tourist trail. Perfect base for exploring the niah caves and lambir waterfalls. Beautiful home cooked food, beach nearby and friendly service. Tours and transfers can be arranged with a wonderful friendly local driver.

Thank you for your compliments ! I hope your trip through Borneo went well ! There are always so many variables in this part of the world that it is difficult to cater for the unexpected - but that is all part of the adventure perhaps ? More

Treetops lodge is a nice location in Miri. Mike seemed to be a grumpy man, with a rather negative look on things, but once we were settled in and talked a bit he did all he could to help us. Food was nice, we were the only people staying here so there were no menus. The idea of having built... More

We had read about this resort in Lonely Planet and read reviews on Tripadvisor, and as a consequence hereof expectations were high. Unfortunately they were not met. The resort itself is quite worn down, and even though the owner told us that we got "the best room in the resort", it was quite frankly ugly and dirty looking. The food... More

This is probably the worst review we have had for some time and we are responding because it is considered unfair. Treetops is in no way a RESORT ! It is a small family run business using our own home which we have extended to include a few guests rooms. We offer food because we are a long way from... More

Treetops is sort of a cross between a longhouse and a B&B, very outdoorsy. This is a nice place to just sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and foliage for a few days. Dinner and breakfast are served communally for all guests at a big table and consist of simple local dishes. Quiet, enjoyable, peaceful.

We very much enjoyed our stay (6 nights) at Treetops. The beautiful setting, the surrounding gardens with fish pond, the large room, the beach at 10 minutes walk, everything was perfect. And moreover, the food was excellent. Dana and her daughter did a very good job. Besides some very relaxing days, we visited Lambir Hills and the Niah Caves. Ester,... More

The Treetop Lodge is located in a very peaceful and quiet place where you can relax. The beds were comfortable and clean, however the room itself could be cleaner. I saw dust and old lizzard poo. The little pool could be cleaner too. The food is outstanding; the cook and her daughter make delicious local dinners! From Treetop Lodge you... More

We were at Treetops in early January for three days or so - we had the place to ourselves as January is rainy/quiet season and it was so beautiful! The owners/staff are all awesome, really genuinely friendly and up for a yarn, helpful, good company. We stayed in a superior room but could have stayed anywhere there and we would... More

Overall, it was a pleasant experience as the lodge was in a quiet area, surrounded by nature and the staff is very friendly, esp the owner who can tell you interesting stories and provide good information on Miri and Niah. However, the lodge is located between Miri (about 15 kms away from the city) and Niah caves (about 1 hour... More

What a lovely setting! The lodge overlooks a small lake and is surrounded by jungle beauty. Owner/hosts Mike, a Brit and his Malaysian wife Esther are engaging and caring hosts. Esther discussed her fascinating family history with me and Mike was super helpful in helping me sort out arrival/departure details. The home-cooked dinners were really delicious. The only downside is... More
