        Facilities in need of improvements. Staff should be able to serve customer's needs and wants. Better planning of touring the resort areas and differentiate the level of services require by hotel guests and day trippers.

        Friendly staff, good location for a weekend with kids > 6 years. We had good trip in the djungle.

        Food was disappointing.

        The resort is located in a beautiful area of rainforest adjacent to Lambir Hills National Park. The setting was lovely and the room we were given had a wonderful outlook over the rainforest. The room itself was spacious, well designed and comfortable. The staff at the resort are very friendly and helpful to the point of being almost over-attentive!

        The resort mainly caters for school and business groups who come on a package deal for adventure activities or team building activities. It does not cater so well for individual travellers. If you stay at a time when there are school groups there (as we did) it is quite noisy, especially down near the water where most of the activities are held. Because they provide buffet meals for the groups you are offered the same option. The food is quite ordinary and uninteresting because it is meeting the needs of the kids. The resort is planning to offer a more "international" service in the future but at the moment it has a "Fawlty Towers" feel to it. If you stay there I would suggest going at the weekend when there are no school groups - they do somewhat spoil the ambience of the place!

        Its location and value for money. Good facilities and good initiative by F&B manager to prepare our meals. Well done. Staff friendly.

        The hotel is not well maintained eventhough they have continuous guests staying. Pity! It is a good value hotel and location. Can do well. Room smell of dust, like it has not been used for a long time. Have to open windows. No initiative to freashen or clean up room for check in guest. Be aware that they have very limited hotel service especially after 5pm.

        The pool is a good facility for family. Resort tour is excellent, with good activities included. safety briefing prior tour

        To improve on safety aspect of pool usage such as to make sure nobody is playing in front of water slides to avoid collission with people sliding down the sliders at high speed. To open restaurant/cafe for ala carte dinner/ lunch etc (important for those who do not subsribe the full boarding package)

        I stayed in the Engkabang room. It has a good view of the virgin tropical forest. I like the lobby area where you can relax and have a good view of the forest.

        I didn't like the restaurant because it only serves buffet meal and no a-la carte order.

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        i like the room facilities, services provided, rate given, environment and the workers who are very friendly.

        i prefer if the waterpark close a bit late and open earlier especially for those who stay there so that we could arrange our time and able to follow other activities.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        Relaxing and pleasure.

        Only buffet available during night time and no choices for guest to eat their dinner as their like.

        The services is very good compared to other hotels we have stayed in Miri. We was given friendly welcome from the bell boy, receptionist and also from the restaurant staff...not to mentioned the owner was very friendly to us especially to my little boy. We have really impressed with the services. I do have some issue though during buffet dinner where the food is almost finish and not being refilled. Since I have to pay full fare and just get a chance to eat only a piece of chicken, lamb and a small spoon of fish. I was a bit disappointed at that time, but after I've complained to the staff, I was given a plate of grilled lamb to compensate it..thanks for the consideration and good services. Anyway, I still feel its appropriate if the hotel could consider about the amount served during dinner so that other guest won't get the same issue like us. The food was taste delicious since most of it freshly picked from farm... ;)

        We would appreciate if the hotel consider the cleanliness of the room, restaurant utensil especially the plates and glasses. Also the amount of food served during dinner as per my comment up there.

        Nice environment.

        I saw spider web in the room. Could be cleaner

        The aound trip through the resort

        the resort should not charge children as the chalet can accomondate more than 2 adult. Children below 12 should be free of charge

        We were satisfied with the size of the rooms, although the toilet is small, it's still ok. We enjoy playing at the water park. We didn't have enought time for other activities but I saw others enjoy the flying fox. I would like to try that during my next visit. Good the see that the resort actually have solar panels to save the environment. Well Done!!!

        There's a lot of mosquitoes, so perhaps the resort can provided the 'electronic mosquito catcher' or something similar. This is for people who forgot to bring insect repellent or allergic to it. Staff members should look more welcoming and smile more often. Just a gentle reminder for staff to switch on the lights at the chalet. Luckily I brought a mini torch light, otherwise we would have difficulty walking up the stairs.

        It is good for those who love nature as the resort is deep in a jungle but yet very accessible , only 36 km from Miri city. It is value for money, especially for those taking the full package. The room is comfortable, the food is good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

        The road leading to the resort can be improved and more sign boards should be put up. There should be more publicity as very few people know about the resort outside Sarawak.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        We enjoyed the water theme park and the environment of the resort. Certainly will stay again in the resort.

        Buffet menu is limited, if possible, please improve the menu with different variety of local food and fruits.
