If you are looking for a relaxing trip, this could be the suitable choice for you. Notes: Wearing shoes/sandals are not allowed in the room No Wifi/TV/any entertainment in the room The room is clean and quiet. However, the male staff is quite bias towards local customer. Foreigner can wear anything to the pool and yet he scold my boyfriend... More

This is a boutique hotel with very few rooms, so it that way it feels you're not one of many. The food is good except the rooms are small. Large bathrooms though. The hotel is set on a smallish plot of land, so there aren't many places to wander about. Essentially it's the pool and the tv room. There's no... More

We stayed at the Village House on 9th July for 3 nights. What can I say about this place, everything was great. The layout and decor is first grade and has the real feel of a relaxing yoga retreat. If you want 2 or 3 days simply to unwind and kick back in a rural setting with the soothing sounds... More

Approximately 40 mins from Kuching International airport to The Village House (taxi ride is about MYR60/ car). This place is a total gem, very well hidden (no kidding as there's nothing much to explore around this homestay except for a quiet beach). If you're going for a short weekend to relax & chill with friends or couple, then this would... More

My stay for the weekend became pretty bad for me & my family. We were awakened by a group of westerners at 4-6 am.They were drunk, swimming in the pool and making loud noises close to getting into fights.

If you're looking for an action packed location then this is not your place but if you're looking for a quiet and peaceful place to unwind then this is the perfect. The Village House is about a 40 minute drive from Kuching in the village of Santubong. It's a beautiful place with nicely designed and comfortable rooms and great bathroom.... More

A wonderful experience which I can't get elsewhere in Kuching. Five stars services, clean and comfortable room, romantic ambience. This is a place where you can truly relax and have a peace of mind. We spent about half an hour looking for the place because there is no sign saying 'the village house' and the gate is closed. Once entered... More

Definitely a place to consider when travelling to Kuching. It's 40minutes away from town so do consider renting a car to get about. The staff were friendly and helpful. They even went out of their way to drop us off at the foothills of santubong mountain which is 5minutes away. There's no 24hr concierge but if you inform them on... More
