We went to the Hilton Batang Ai by the Hilton shuttle from Kuching. The trip lasted 4 hours and finally passed fairly quickly. Upon arrival, a boat was waiting for us for a small 20 minutes trip to the hotel.
The hotel is nestled along the lake and is well integrated with nature. the architecture of the hotel is made up of several longhouses in which the rooms are. The rooms were not luxurious but were especially well equipped and clean. The pool was really great and enjoyable.
The hotel is isolated, and there is nothing around: no restaurants or shops. You must think to bring some food and drinks if you don't want to buy everything at the hotel.
We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant for 2 days. Without being exceptional, the food was good and not so expensive. The staff was really charming.
We reserved a tour to visit a longhouse. We had some reluctance about this tour because we don't like organized excursions. But we spent an extraordinary day at this Longhouse. The guides were fantastic, the people at the longhouse extremely hospitable. This was the best day of all our stay in Borneo.
Lost at the end of the world ... the Hilton Batang Ai worth a visit !
