            Superb place for a nature getaway”

            The resort is a place for a short getaway from the urban city life and enjoy the scenic view with chilling weather. It was a quiet night during our stay but we thoroughly enjoy that. The resort also provide an optional tour for RM30+ per pax to 3 attractions, namely Kalimantan view point, horticulture garden and flower garden. Food is served in restaurant and we miss the Nasi Goreng Kampung so much. On top of that, the friendliness and efficiency showed by the staff of the resort deserved an applaud. Our car battery dies off at the lower hill entrance and we informed the security in charge, and he immediately ring up the receptionist in the resort, and 2 resort staff were dispatched to help us. The staff arrived in thunder speed, helped us to fix our car so we can continue our journey to airport safely. Thank you and kudos to the staff!

            If you're looking for a place to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city - this would be it. Staff is very friendly and waited for us to check us in and also cook us dinner since there was not many guests during the week i was there. Air is fresh and crisp. There is no need for air conditioning here.

            Better than expected”

            We used own transport to the resort, 4 adults 2 kids, stayed 1 night. It was a drizzling day, we're lucky to enjoy the cool weather. The whole resort only 6 of us due to off peak season. It's very quiet at night and we got to enjoy the tranquility to the fullest. The rooms were clean and with good view. Food was good. I will definitely stay 2 nights during next visit, even my 6 & 8 years old kids were complaining not enough time for them to run freely on the meadow.

            Idyllic break”

            Borneo Highlands has beautiful scenery, it is so peaceful and gets very welcome cool breezes. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. I recommend the trek to the Kalimantan border.

            The place was beautiful but need to provide some sort of entertainment for the kids such as board games, maybe put ps3 at the gym centre, and maybe have a TV at the Reading lounge because there was no TV at all in the room

            Everything were awesome except the price!”

            I stayed for a single night (eagle suite-family room) Pros 1. A quite, peace, clean & beautiful surrounding. Credit to the mother nature. 2. A bit cooler especially early morning. Fresh air. 3. Friendly staff, always smiling, greet & help when you need a favour. 4. Big room, nice setting. Cons 1. Too expensive! Family room costed rm530 per night. 2. Breakfast especially the local dishes, need to improve. Credit to the friendly waiter. 3. Please put entertainment in the room (tv). Nothing to do at night. Bad experience, if you are not confident enough to drive by your own car, please leave it at the entrance and use the shuttle provided. My car’s brake got problem while decending the hill and luckily we are safe. Perhaps due to the heavy use & friction. Thanks God.

            No better place than this near Kuching”

            Its really a good place to go to have the real relaxation. Its fully surrounded by nature. No television, Vegetarian food, Phone signal is not great, WiFi is also not strong. So almost totally disconnected from Routine tiring world. Kids felt boring after one day. When I reached back home felt I returned from another world. Not a exaggeration, those who really want some time away, its one of the good place to go near Kuching. Facilities having plus and minus, but its manageable.

            Go for beautiful scenery”

            Beautiful view around the place with cool and fresh air. The facilities of the resort is somehow limited. Some part of the resort look run down such as the gym and spa facilities. They have a restaurant that serve vegetarian based food, the taste is just acceptable, nothing much. Limited choice of food for dinner which they serve in big portion and a bit pricey. There's no tv and other entertainment but internet connection and mobile phone works just fine. There is a small shop hat sells souvenir but not that attractive (more to golfers item). It will be good if they could have small playground for young children and vending machine (for drinks or snacks) and to provide more information/promotional leaflet at the counter .

            The best things about this place: 1.) Calm and peaceful surroundings 2.) Well trained staffs, friendly and polite 3.) Delicious vegetarian meals 4.) Clean toilets 5.) Good security 6.) Beautiful gardens 7.) Strong in-house Wifi Take serious precautions : The road leading to the top is very dangerous when raining. Make sure car tyres, car break are new/well maintained, car engine capacity above 1.3 cc is recommended and a skillful driver. Or else ready to pay RM53 per person for their transportation. Expect to spend more for the activities/services provided/offered by the resort.

            Very nice view if loved to see more on nature . It gets colder during midnight , and morning . Stff are excellently friendly.. the view from our room is very nice. Toilets are in each room looks new its just the place is quite old and our room dont have screen so luckily i have brought repellant with me tho insects dont really go into the room that much. They only served vegetarian food, but doesnt seems to be the problem. Driving up to the hotel are steep😫 but still worth to visit 🤭very relaxing 💜
