Didn't stay at the hotel. It was a day trip with my wife and a friend. It was a naturally pretty place. I'm not sure whether it is considered properly maintained, but the surrounding is satisfactory to me. I'm a nature lover. The air is refreshing and cooling,even at 3pm. What I didn't like was the road going up and... More

Little high cost to get there. But overall to made a trip to go there is worthwhile. Transport: A taxi to send you up to the foot hill cost RM100 (Guess going can be cheaper if negotiate the price with taxi driver. On the way back can can stop by to see the urangutan at Semenggoh).

Not very suggested place in raining day because cannot go to Sarawak-Kalimantan mountain view boarder.

I have been to kuching many times and have often looked at alternative places outside the city. Somehow this place never popped up before but boy, am I glad I saw it this time.

First to get to know this resort, i am glad that Sarawak has one to be compared to Cameron Highlands or other resorts in Peninsulars. However, when the four of us try to get there, the roads are terrible and scary (we have reached Aman 6) with zero maintenance has been done which later we decided not to proceed with... More

Not knowing what this place has to offer, it was a pleasant experience coming in with little to no expectations. Going up to the highlands or mountains isn't anything new to me, so the drive up was what was expected. The resort provides a shuttle service from the foothill as it can be somewhat dangerous to inexperienced drivers who wants... More

The location of the resort is perfect for nature lovers. Located on a hill top with beautiful vistas all round. The only problem is the owner seems to left the resort to rot. For RM449 a night I definitely did not expect to see a Broken toilet seat or bedroom full of bugs.
