Thank you Scott for an amazing experience staying in Bario! Very late in reviewing as we stayed in September 2016, but if there is a place to stay whilst visiting Bario, this place hits the nail on the head! Scott and his family have an awesome history in the Kelabit Highlands and absolutely spoilt us with their hospitality! We visited...

Celebrated Christmas and ushered the new year here with plenty of food and merry making. Bikes are available as a mode of transport around Bario. Bed sizes varies from twin beds, and kings. There are plenty to do around Bario (particularly surrounding nature), just ask your host!

Tucked slightly up on a slope, Ngimat Ayu homestay is the perfect place to stay in Bario. The place is spacious, a mini long-house, with gorgeous views from the verandah. The verandah is cosy, one can sit and relax in the cool weather and breathe in the fresh crisp air, with a cup of hot drink. The view of the...

I love the location of this home stay, the view from their verandah is superb, you can see the mountains and paddy field right across. Surrounding is calm, the place is clean with spacious room, clean washroom with wide kitchen for everyone to gather round the table for meal. I adore their "smokehouse" as i called it, where we can...

A trip to Bario gets you far,far away from the madding crowd in the concrete jungle. The twin otter flight from Miri is an experience in itself. If you don't want to fly you can always find someone to take you on a 12-hour road trip (if the bridges have not been washed away). We enjoyed our short stay at...

A wonderful retreat in the Kelabit Highlands. Scott greeted us at the airport and took us on a short scenic drive to Ngimat Ayu House. The charming house sat on a slope with a lovely view overlooking the padi fields. The rooms are clean and cosy but we found ourselves drawn to the airy verandah. Perfect place to sip a...

That's exactly how we felt when we stayed at this beautiful homestay. You can feel the love in every corner of the Ngimat Ayu home. We truly enjoyed the amazing hospitality of Scott and his adorable & beautiful mum (Tepu) and Nigel. The kitchen is always busy with wonderful aroma wafting by and the sunset is surreal from the elevated...

Excellent place to stay and recuperate. The balcony is so comfy that I was very reluctant to leave the house. Excellent hosts especially Aunty Martha. She's so motherly and cooks very well. Would be back one to have a long long stay.. By the way, the place is very clean. Strongly recommended.
