It's really a nice place.. Quiet and calming. Although I personally think that it cost more than it offers but since it is considered a boutique Inn, it's OK for us since we were kinda desperate looking for a weekend gateway lol. The atmosphere is very chill.. The room is small. No TV. If you wish to watch TV you have to go to the library.. More like a small living room on the 2nd floor of main building but no privacy since you have to share with other guests. First come first serve. You came first you control the channel lol. They have a pretty cool rustic looking reading corner.. Which they called it as a library. Insta worthy too. The room is pretty warm during the noon. I advice you not to linger in your bedroom esp during noon otherwise you won't feel the aircond and it's pretty hot. Food selection is not much but it is nicely cooked. I love the Nasi Goreng. If you love spicy food, this is more than adequate level of spicy lol. They're pretty generous with the breakfast. We love it. Never had the chance to swim in the pool. It looks pretty shallow. If you're looking for a place to stay but not expecting too much, this is a nice place. Enjoy your stay!

The pool is very nice, relaxing and fresh. The place was quiet as we were the only customers but with a big group around, it may be noisy as all activities are around the pool and all rooms are located above the pool. Also, please note there is a mosque next door so be ready for an early wake up call! We were very disappointed by the food as there was very little choice (this could be linked to the pandemic) and what we were served was expensive but not good. Service was low, we felt we were not given much attention.

We had the most enjoyable staycation at this well appointed beautiful property tucked away in Santubong. Felt totally relaxed in the lush green & flora, clean spacious room (we took the Putera), great hospitality and chilled by the pool. Staff are attentive and welcoming. In the morning we rode on their bikes, first towards the village crossing Sg tekoyong, and looped around back to Lorong Pantai Puteri towards the beach approx. 7km. Highly recommend to take their bikes. Arrived back at hotel for breakfast and another dip in the pool before check out. Real gem.

The Village House at Santubong embraced me with a tranquil outdoor and healthy environment. The boutique hotel with its colourful & artistic scenery and pool area is located at a stone trow of the authentic fishermen village and beach of Kampung Santubong. The numerous little waterfalls surrounded me with the peace of mind to relax, enjoy today and pick up a book.
