“A place for a get-away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The location of the hotel was quite far from the city, around 20 minutes drive. The scenery along the road is quite breathtaking, although winding most of the way - single carriageway. Early booking is recommended especially when you need more than 1 room and during peak periods. The rooms are average with with queen sized bed or two singles. Equipped with its own veranda, allowing a relaxing atmosphere overseeing the Brunei river. Fishing is allowed from the veranda, so bring your own fishing gear. You can also fish at the adjacent fishing ponds, nominal entrance fee per person, and you can rent a fishing rod.

The swimming pool is OK, small. One for the children and another for adults.

Overall stay was comfortable.

The Zyan Restaurant offer fresh fish, and authentic Bruneian dishes.

Room Tip: Book early and request for the room. The ones we've been are rooms 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7.

Quite good for gateaway with your family. A simple resort but yet it accommodate with swimming pool and for those who love fishing should come and stay overnight. My favourite tomyam soup. MUST TRY!! there is a space for kids activity so that we can send off them to play as well.

got a room with dusty bedsheets, broken lamp and leaky aircon! no one came to fix it! talked to the supervisor and we got moved to another room. All we got was an extended checkout time. I dont really think 2pm is an 'extended' check out time. Other hotels offer until 6pm! Oh and the food is cheap, but TERRIBLE! Probably thats why other hotels are better!

I've stayed here with some friends and I really liked it! But veryyy poor service cuz it they took like 3 house to bring extra pillows! I don't really recommend parents to bring small kids cuz there's lots of monkeys and they stole our food! Maybe they also can steal your kids! Cuz you know monkey loves kid (lol) about the swimming pool, the time I was there it was under reno so I can't review the swimming pool... I totally recommend to people who LOVES to relax and fish... It's a greatttt place to fish! For the cleanliness of the resort, I would say that it's ok.. Not as dirty as the other reviewers said.... AND GUESS WHAT? IM GOING WITH MY FRIENDS AGAIN NEXT MONTH!

Clean simple rooms with a wonderful river view! Don't forget to bring yr fishing rods while you're here cos there's plenty of fish to catch. For those who prefer eating then catching the in-house restaurant provides delicious meals at reasonable prices.

This is a quaint set up designed to resemble water village houses and the design works well. This place is a budget or middling option and if you're getting prices comparable to luxury hotels then don't come here.

What recommends it is simple rooms (rather like being onboard a houseboat), a great restaurant attached and - of course - the view and experience of being on the river. It feels authentic and it's away from the centre of Bandar.

Stop off at the 5th Sultan's mausoleum on the way around.

we stay in this hotel recently. nice place,great location but poor service and cleanliness.
rooms not clean-spiderwebs,dusty table,stained bedsheet,no towel,bathroom stained with soaps. we asked for towel since there is non in the room but it took us ages to get one towel ,merely after 5 hours and after few calls to receptionist. the receptionist told me its a full house last night, so they dont have towel in stock, have to wait for it to wash and will only deliver at 7:00pm..dear hotel manager..hope you read this...resort is in such a nice view but the cleanliness of the room is not well maintain at all..please maintain it..such a pity..its the only 15 rooms not 100....
