The Kebun was a great family farmstay. Adrian and Olivia do a first class job for their guests. We loved it and would have liked to stay longer or return in the future for another relaxing stay. We stayed in the Olivia Bungalow which is like having your own 2 bedroom farm house complete with A/C in both bedrooms. This is particularly nice since we had two young daughters (age 2 & 4). The grounds are great for kids to see and explore with lots of animals.
We booked the Weekend Adventure Package (4D/3N) and Adrian was very flexible with the tour and modifed to suit the weather and our young kids.
The food was excellent and very traditional homestyle Malay food. Olivia was able to make meals that our 2 & 4 year old both enjoyed.
For nature lovers looking for a great farm stay and a true understanding of what it takes to make a farm work in the jungle of Borneo this is a great place and a great value.
- 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
