Owing to a delayed flight from Pangkalan Bun and then an early morning departure to Kuching I only saw the Gardenia at dusk and at dawn but what I did see was very appealing with independent chalets (rooms) connected by raised walkways in attractive gardens. Our room was large and well-appointed though the bathroom had a musty smell as one... More

Two nights in this authentic Dayak Resort were just enough to relax & forget about any problems. It has been a fantastic surprise which I would never expect in Pontianak. Perfect location being so closed to the airport as well as the city center. Very convenient for a relaxing business trip, mice or a family week end. The property is... More

There is a language barrier in the restaurant, but with a few... More

I needed to print an airline e-ticket, no problem. I wanted to rent a car and driver, no problem- "would you like me to print an itinerary". My flight left at 15-30, no problem, a late check out and free transport to the airport was arranged... The hotel is about 10Km from the town and 3Km from the airport, it... More

We were waiting transport to go into the interior to work at a mission hospital in the jungle and had two days to spend before we could go. We chose the Gardenia Spa and Resort because their website did a good job of explaining the property. It looked like a very good value and indeed was just that. When we... More

I did not realize that Pontianak has such a beautiful resort. Love the setting, the grounds and the staff. Free access to Taman Fantasia Kalbar themed park next to the resort is also adding the value. The spa is also a highlight. The location is very convenient as only 5 minutes drive from the airport.
