“Truely wonderful stay with lovely host(s)”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

We (family - 2 adults, 2 children (11, 13) and grandmother) stayed at Rom's Orchid garden for one night. We arrived early and the family were probably not quite ready for us, but we were given a wonderfully refreshing welcome drink of lime juice, then shown to our 'cottage' in the grounds of the home. It had two bedrooms and a bathroom - suited us fine. The room was basic, but that did not bother us, as we were looking for a 'real Malaysian' experience. The 'boss', Rom was a lovely lady, full of character and kindness. She was so eager for us to have a nice time in Kuching, offering us lifts to various places and lots of helpful information. We went to the Sarawak Museum which was quite a distance out from the city and one of her sons drove us there (we did pay, but probably not as expensive as a normal taxi). We also did a cookery course which was very interesting and produced some delicious food (the best we ate in Kuching!). It was probably more of a cookery demonstration, as we did not get 'hands-on' as much as the children would have liked, but this all blended into insignificance afterwards when we ate the tasty food. If we had more time, we would have stayed longer. The house was a five minute drive from the river (north side) from where you could catch a boat across for 2RM to the city centre. The grounds around the house had lots of flowers and Rom was very passionate about her flora. She and her family were extremely lovely and we can honestly say that if you are looking to experience true Malaysian hospitality, you should try this place - fantastic food and warm and friendly hosts. We feel like we made a friend in Rom, and we were only there for one night!
