We just spent an excellent 8 nights at The Kebun at Adrian's bungalow. If you are looking for 5* luxury or a boutique hotel this is probably not for you. It is rural and rustic place, with lots of dogs and chickens (and yes, some mosquitoes), but it is a place of real character, and a perfect base for visiting... More

Wanted to visit The Kebun for the longest time as we heard great reviews from a friend. Finally made it this year for my birthday! We stayed at The Guest House, a nice little, self-contained house just right by the chill lounge. We were picked up at the airport and when we reached The Kebun, we were welcomed by lovely... More

My partner and I stayed at the longhouse for 3 nights and thought it was a very cool experience, but were very glad we did not stay any longer. Perhaps because we stayed close to the low season, we felt we were a little neglected by the staff at times. We never met the owners, Adrian and Olivia, and when... More

We recently stayed in Olivia's Bungalow with our three children aged 10, 7 and 4 and had an amazing time. The food is fantastic (oh the excitement of undoing the tiffin tin every evening to find out what we had for dinner), everyone is so friendly and helpful and the surroundings are beautiful. The children were made to feel so... More

We went there with the family, including one 10 year old girl. The experience was fantastic. We stayed at the Adrian´s bungalow. Very comfortable for the five of us. It includes a car, so we were able to drive around. The staff was very nice and helpful. We had dinner there, served at our bungalow. Nice and more than enough.... More

Three years after our first trip to Borneo (Sarawak) we returned: we wanted to 're-do' Sarawak, and also visit Sabah. Because we so much enjoyed staying at the Kebun's longhouse last time, we wanted to come back to this special place. We had kept in touch via facebook, and therefore knew that Adrian had made quite a few changes. He... More

When we arrived in Kuching, we were greeted by our host Adrian who welcomed us and brought us to the Kebun, a homestay on a working organic farm just a few kilometers west of the city. Since we were hungry, Adrian first stopped at a wonderful Indian restaurant. The grounds and bungalows of the Kebun, are beautiful but, the warm... More

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
