This hotel is mixed bag. On one hand, I dare you to a more beautiful location that allows such easy access to the rainforest. Truly stunning vistas, especially from the Kalimantan lookout at 3200 feet on the property that gives wide views of Indonesia Kalimantan. The room was very comfortable, with great windows and a traditional look and feel with a stunning bath (no tub). I greatly enjoyed my room. The Internet was also not bad for being in the middle of the jungle. The spa was nice, if small and the food was vegetarian, but tasty and with great variety. I really enjoyed "being in the jungle." The golf course was in a great shape. Now for the down side: the hotel/development was clearly part of some grand scheme that has failed to take off. Only about 5% of the property lots were sold, so parts of the area have the "not finished construction site look." Luckily the jungle is busy reclaiming the unsold lots. The common areas need a spruce up. They are not dingy or dirty; the housekeeping staff cleans the place very well, its just that everything looks twenty years old. The food is great, the front desk staff is great, the servers in the restaurant are not good. Yet, as you are in the dining room with is open and richly detailed with wood and carvings, you feel as if you are in the a true Dayak longhouse (a luxury one). I hope the hotel can stay open. More guests should make the journey up the mountain and into the rainforest. The nearby Sarawak Forest is great for orangutans
Pros: Food and tremendous location.
Cons: Services staff in dining room was not knowledgeable and frequently confused.
Location: Deep in rain forest in the highlands. So much to see and do nearby. Great if you want to see birds and orangutans (at the nearby Sarawak State Forest)
