We stayed for three nights in a treehouse. From the sea it could be hardly seen as it was tucked away between the trees. Every morning the squirrels came by to say hello. The treehouse was great! Good bathroom, good bed, smally refrigerator to keep our sons milk cool and to make a coffee in the morning. It is possible...

After we did our check in, which was just business, and not friendly. I asked for the trip to Bako and the evening mangrove trip, which both were possible for the next day! ( better do an early booking because they have limited places) So we booked for both trips and di ceded to do also the night walking! already...

We were really pleased that we made time in our tight schedule for a stop here. We were pleasantly surprised with our treehouse which was clean and reasonably modern with perfect sea views. We were grateful for our mosquito net as there were a number of areas where bugs could enter the structure, particularly around the windows. Also be prepared...

My girlfriend and I booked 2 nights in a tree house. From the exterior, it was what I had expected, shabby and full of character. What I didn't expect was how comfortable and modern it was inside. The sea view from the balcony is superb, and the rainforest setting is a million miles away from the UK! Just remember the...

We stayed one night in a tree house and it was a great experience. From your balcony you can see monkeys and squirrels, you sleep with the sounds of the forest and the sea, and wake up with the birds. The atmosphere is relaxing. The wooden tree house is lovely, clean and very comfortable. We didn't need to use the...

I have just spent one night in Treehouse 2. It was an experience I enjoyed. Arranged pick up from my hotel in Kuching for RM15 per person each way. Pick up was with a van and trip took 45 minutes. Driver was about half an hour late, not too sure why, but he was polite helpful and courteous. The treehouse...

Booked a transfer from a Kuching hotel for 30myr. Guy got a bit lost but we were soon on our way. Took about 30mins from Kuching, check in fast and easy, suitcases carried up to our treehouse for us no trouble. Beautiful in the tops of trees. A couple of negatives. The sliding doors out to the balcony were very...

Quite pricey for such basic accommodation. It used to be nicer as real log cabins abt 20 years ago. Now it's made of bricks. But the tree houses are pretty and cozy. That's the only one with a/c and yes, you DO need them! The beaches are smaller but definitely prettier and cleaner here, especially if you go farther. If...

The location of this resort within the rainforest is gorgeous. You can spot wildlife quite easily and it's a pleasure to walk through that evergreen space everyday. As expected with rainforest space, the woodwork does get grungy with mold and the humidity does set a severe pace for the maintenance staff. We had problems with our air conditioning appliance as...

The location is great, nice little beach and the restaurants serves good food (if the dish you prefer is available). The cabines are old, shower and toilet smelly, dirty sheets on our beds. The staff was not very helpful, the excursions they offer are ok but they only have 2 boats. We wanted to book our excursions on the first...
