In June 2013 I followed a life long dream of mine, without the ex I'd shared the dream with, and headed to Borneo solo. After a nature filled time in Sabah I decided to head to Sarawak - first stop Cat City (Kuching). I wanted to learn more about Borneo; it's plants, animals, peoples, history, food, arts and crafts and Kuching is the best place to do that. I was thrilled to arrive at the Batik Boutique to a wonderful, warm welcome and from the moment I arrived to when I was dropped at the airport by staff, I felt like I was with family. The hotel is artistically designed with incredible attention to detail and staff lovingly helped me tailor sightseeing to my personal needs and assisted in organising a trip where I FINALLY saw the largest flower in the world, the infamous Rafflesia. I'd spend the day in jungle, or museums, or doing a cooking course, or wondering around the city and arrive back, dripping in sweat, to my air-conditioned, clean, comfortable room and end the evening with room service if required, or a movie in the back courtyard. I cannot recommended this lovely boutique hotel and it's fun, attentive staff enough. It's one of the best hotel experiences I've had in the world, especially for the cost. And if you have a chance to hang with Jo-Lynn or Jacqui do it - they're brilliant women who totally run the town with passion and zest! You may even end up in a cool bar singing Karaoke with strangers! :)
