We stayed in Olivia's bungalow with grandparents and 2 small children. As others here have noted, the hospitality on the farm is first class.
Food is lovely and Adrian and his family accommodate all your requests. Adrian's daughter spent a lot of time just giving us lifts to nearby places, and for trips further out Adrian organised a car & driver who turned out to be a knowledgeable guide.
Traveling with young kids the drive to Semenggoh and Cultural village were a bit much, but definitely worth the trip.
As farm stays go, the Kebun is up there with the best.
- 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
