Highly recommend the Kebun as a base to explore the region. The accommodation is great and includes a lovely garden and farm setting which is great to explore. We stayed in both bungalows, adrian's creates an amazing other world feeling, beautifully decorated and built from gorgeous timber. Oliviias like stepping into a purposely constructed 80's movies set. Great hosts who... More

Hidden away on the edge of the Matang National Park an hours drive from Kuching, The Kebun is a fantastic, rustic place to stay. Our hosts Adrian and Jeneeil were friendly, helpful and always on hand, even giving us a phone programmed with numbers incase we needed to be in touch. The Kebun itself if situated on a beautiful organic... More

Stayed in Adrian's bungalow recently with hubby and 2 kids. Host: Adrian very friendly and funny guy. Jeneil a very good cook. Accomodation: Adrian's bungalow, - very rustic with lots of antique on display. However lighting in the unit are a bit too dimmed. If you want to absorb in the kampung life style and see how the people in... More

Returned to The Kebun after a visit in 2013, and stayed for almost two weeks. Such a beautiful place with so much to offer. Loved waking up to the sounds of the birds, frogs and insects. There are many photographic opportunities with all the beautiful heliconias, water lilies and other plants and insects. It is easy to spend a few... More

This place is beautiful. Adrian and Janeil were fantastic hosts, even spoiling us with a birthday cake. Both Adrian and Janeil took the time to talk to us about the area and their experiences in Sarawak, which was really appreciated. The children loved the garden and we loved being so close to nature. One of the best places I have... More

A great place to stay to get a real long-house experience. Food was fantastic, all local dishes some spicy some not but all tasty. Adrian and Jannel were a great hosts and could not help us enough. If you want a hotel experience it is not for you but if you want a real traditional Kuching experience you have found... More

We spent 6 nights in Adrian's Bungalow at the Kebun and absolutely loved the experience. The Bungalow was rustic but very comfortable with everything we needed including a private verandah with hammocks. Jemillah and Adrian looked after us really well. We were out each day so didn't have lunch but a delicious dinner was delivered to us each evening in... More

This is the place to stay if you want to stay in the countryside, be close to nature, want personalised attention and want to explore Sarawak. Nothing is too much trouble for Adrian: he even went back to the airport for us to collect our bags when they did not arrive on the same flight as us in error. All... More

The Kebun is hand down the best place you can stay in Sarawak. Why would you want to stay at a boring hotel in Kuching? At the Kebun we were looked after like royalty by Adrian and Jeneil, constantly delivered delicious food in abundance and loved navigating ourselves around the area in the car provided.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kebun was started 12 years ago as our plan for a retirement home in Sarawak, East Malaysia. Adrian’s Bungalow was put up after being disassembled from the movie set of The Sleeping Dictionery. Olivia’s was only put up only two years later when it was taken out of storage which was also disassembled from the same movie set. The farmstay side of the business only started in April 2010 after much encouragement from friends.The Kebun is not just accommodation, it is an experience. If you would like to get a taste for the basics of a simple lifestyle in a beautiful tropical setting, which is of fresh gardens of organic herbs & vegetables, picking your own tropical fruits, dining on fresh farm raised livestock, fishing for your own freshwater fish & simple accommodation with little impact to the environment, or even to help out with feeding all of the animals at the end of the day’s activities and again in the morning, then your are up for a unique Sarawakian adventure at The Kebun. ... more   less
