This place has so much potential and I read many good reviews so I gave it a go. Its about 30 minutes drive from Miri and we had rented a car. The access road into the resort was terrible - untarred and bumpy. But it had some of the best scenery.
Then we got into the resort and was told that the jacuzzi in the room was not working. The manager then said that but hey " the jacuzzi is not important feature for us right" . Er but that;s why I paid more for the room. Then he started mumbing that he could still be used but the swirls would not be big enough blah. blah blah.
We checked in , room is quite nice built on stilts set in the rainforest. We took a walk along the resort - the pool was not cleaned, the water park was being maintained ( but it looked run down), the fishing pond looked like it had not been used for ages. I'm getting a bit disillusioned. Then indeed the jacuzzi is not working not because the swirls were not strong but because it was leaking.
the resort is really deep in the middle of the jungle and the access road is bad so we couldnt drive out to Miri for dinner and had dinner at the resort. There were very few guests so the food served were unimpressive.The cakes looks like it was the same two days in a row. Its a pity because we went there for Gua Niah and which was about an hours drive from there We had a nice trek there and I just wanted a little luxury and the place sounded promising. The failure was in the maintenance and the staff looked so bored and uninterested.
