Before we booked our cheap flights to Malaysia I had not heard of Kuching. To break up the time in KL and Singapore we decided we should take our kids (13,11&7) on an adventure to Borneo. The positive reviews of the Kebun caught our attention immediately. How right they are. Adrian's hospitality was incredibly generous- (which included my birthday cake) The accommodation of Olivia's bungalow had everything we needed. The food on offer during the stay was amazing and plentiful. We were spoilt with our washing done while away on day trips. The options of what to do- so many, we need to come again one day soon! We managed to fit in a trip to Bako National Park and the beautiful Chinese temple nearby, A trip to the orangutans as well as a personalised tour with a ranger organised by Adrian where we went out and spotted our own great apes. A trip to a real long house, A waterfall walk of Kubah National Park and a night tour there was a real highlight where we spotted so many frogs- seven different types, Kuching itself is a lovely city to visit too, while the farm is 15 minutes away. This is a real affordable gem. A trip I am recommending to all my family and friends.
- 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
