My son and I decided to stay at Kura Kura after the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. After experiencing Sabah, we were met at Kuching by Liza and taken to the markets for shopping. A short drive to her village and then into a boat for a magical river trip through canyons to their jungle home. I was so relaxed I kept falling asleep. The place has a certain charm and Liza and Lars are perfect hosts. They make you feel so welcome. Rooms are very comfortable. The house has large outside areas to lounge. Liza makes the most delicious meals. As the only guests at the time we felt a bit overwhelmed with the food - plate loads of superb dishes which we all shared together like close friends. Luke and I went with Lars caving and jungle walks. We did a day canoeing on the river, 11 Kim's, with some local lads. It was bliss. Washing clothes in the river and bathing in the river was wonderful. Cannot recommend more highly.
Liza and Lars and their daughter truly have a piece of paradise. Just go!
