Relaxing
Great food, Nice pool, Attentive staff
The Village House is located just outside of the town of Santubong around 1 hour from Kuching. It's a nice place to stay for relaxing by the pool, swimming and eating great food. There isn't much to do nearby though, we spent a day at Bako National Park which appeared to be close, but by road it is easier and cheaper to get there from Kuching. There is a beach nearby but it isn't that nice - it's covered in driftwood and other scrap and is partially mangrove. There isn't anywhere else to eat within walking distance which was annoying because you are stuck eating at the hotel always unless you catch a taxi to get somewhere far away. This seemed like a pain at first, but in the end it worked out OK because the food was all so good and the prices weren't too high.

Tranquil hotel perfect for a day of relaxation
design, friendly staff, nice swimming pool
The village house was an excellent one night stay for us. It is beautifully designed, quiet, has a nice swimming pool, lounging area and an excellent cook. You can organise tours outside for trekking or a boat ride, but in general, there is not much to do around the area. Recommended for just one night - good food, friendly staff and just a beautiful place to live.

Beautiful place but difficult to find
Very well presented, extremely relaxing and friendly attentative staff
The stay was excellent, the place is beautiful and very well designed, nice pool, great selection of books and games in the reading room, plus really nice staff. My only gripe is the place is extremely hard to find. Its hidden in a maze of dead end dirt track roads, it has no sign, and the high gates were closed when we arrived, giving the impression of an exclusive and private residence. There is a map of the area in the village however the village house has a different name on the map. Overall, it took us about 45 minutes and three phone calls to locate the place after arriving in the village. To conclude, I would recommend this hotel, but be very prepared on how to get there before you go!

Clean and pleasant hotel for a relaxing weekend
Peaceful, good restaurant, quiet, close to wildlife and nature
The hotel is rustic and good for a quiet, relaxing break. There are a number of activities nearby, principally trekking and nature-based. It is about 40mins by taxi from Kuching itself (50-60 MYR). Staff are very friendly and helpful. Wifi is available in the bar area although it would be good if this could be extended to the rooms.

quiet and relaxing
the room, the pool, and the food
The staff couldn't be more helpful. We checked in quite late and the manager greeted us by name and sorted everything out with us really fast (there was an issue with our booking on the Agoda side). The food was great, probably the best Beef Rendang I've ever had (much more subtly spiced than I'm used to in Singapore)
