    Facilities in chalet (bathroom) can be further improved. Chalet condition is good, well taken care of. Water park is great but the facilities especially for kids can be further improved (rusty equipments). Food was great, quantity and quality is awesome. Coffee served in the teapot is very thick (awesome!!). Overall 2 nights stay was great. Enjoyed the park tour. However overall facilities (fish pond, boat, animal farm, etc) which are good attractions are less taken care, can be improved here. Teambuilding facilities (obstacles and low rope) are great but need more staff to take care of safety.

    Waitresses made me feel uncomfortable”

    Waitressess too attentive until they made me feel uncomfortable. Everytime during meal at Palm Restaurants there were a few waitresses standing there and watching you closely like u r going to do somethibg wrong. Try not to stare too much & but in the same time helpful. Sometimes i coyld listen to their personal conversation as if they assume the guests did not understand their language but unfortunately i do! Teatime should be buffet not lining up like school kids to get their food served by the waitresses. Overall good vacation for relaxation.

    True hideaway from city”

    I need to compliment the resort’s staff. All of them are very friendly and helpful. I’d been here for few times, and if there’s one thing that I need to comment, it will be the well being of the resort’s facilities. It’s really abit of rundown and I hope the management can put more affords to have them upgrade or replace. For example, the Meranti chalet that I’m staying, the bathroom’s basin is almost damage. And the water park is obviously lack of maintenance as the slides looks very “unsafe”. Overall, I do love this place and it will be sad to see the condition getting degrading each time I visit. This is a sanctuary for those that really want to getaway from city life perhaps a day or two :) But, I have to remind all Agodaian, that there will be only one area (the corner next to lobby’s elevator) in this whole resort that gt wifi service. Yes. There will be no line reception at all. That is why, this is a true getaway from city !

Esp the toilet room. annoying wooden door and u hv to squeeze yourself before the door is able to be closed. pls fix the little sink and the flooring. the bathroom sink needs fixing. you need to add a mirror in the bathroom and a ledge to place your amenities on.

    Unique experience!”

    We felt quite intrepid as we drove deeper into the jungle! What a wonderful 2 nights we had! There were so many exciting activities for the children to choose from. The seemingly endless food supply was plentiful and delicious. The rooms were delightful stilt houses over the water. The bedding and towels were sparkling white. The eco-friendly ethos was wonderful - they had (clean) recycled water bottles which we could fill from a spring and thoughtful little proverbs written around the park. All the staff were very friendly and lots of fun! We even went on a jungle walk and found tarantulas (at a safe distance!) The horses looked a bit sad but they were well cared for by the very gentle staff. Book now, if you want something a bit different! It's not your average 5 star but you will have a great time!

    If you're a big eater, the food at resort was a lot!”

    The resort is located about 5 minutes drive from Lambir Hill National Park. So, it is recommended for those who are planning to visit Lambir Hill National Park. To our amaze, we were the only two guests checked in on 8th Feb. So, it was a little bit creepy when the resort left with only one light at the receptionist desk (though understandable it it to save the energy). However, the staff offered to send the dinner to our rooms. I must say the dinner and breakfast were a lot (to small eaters like us). I couldn't imagine if we didn't take dine in at the resort, as there were prob limited eateries nearby. For activities at the resort wise, there were quite a number of varieties such as flying fox, swimming pools, rock climbing, multi-purpose hall etc. However, it is advisable to go there by group than couple or two buddies. Unless you enjoy quiet times there. Please bring along repellent and apply it extensively. Otherwise, you may end up having a lot of mosquito bites.

    Go Green”

    A lot of maintenance needed but room is clean for stay. A lot of activities however staffs only start work by 9am, and we have to check out by 12pm. Rushing. They served snack, dinner, breakfast and lunch at the expense of a paid room (3pax, extra head count by person - additional charge). Food was great because most came from their farm & land. Practised a "no waste" style of recreational stay, it's a good environment for kids to be in, even adults. A lot to learn here.

    Green was the motto”

    No wifi coverage, no signal coverage (pros & cons there). However alot of things have deteriorated and not safe for use, but mostly due to nature taking over what was man-made. They served us snack, dinner, breakfast, lunch all at the expense of a paid room. The food was great because most food came from their garden. I wish they have English speaking tour. Waterfall was great to visit, but I wish there was a life buoy at the site just in case of emergency.

    An escape to the jungle”

    the location , waterpark ,the tour of the resort

    we always wanted to have a stay in a tropical rainforest surroundings but not too out of the way. it was only a 50km drive from Miri and when we arrive at our chalet we were already in a tropical jungle setting. The activities were abundant and in nearby location and the tour was a good eye opener of a resort which is partially self sustaining from water,food and other supplies

    excellent value hotel during off peak period”

    mini adequate water park ( Suitable for adults and toddlers with supervision )

    love the service, room and food ( i book the full board room ). set in hidang style but quite a spread for 1 adult and 1 toddler. food delicious and variety and love being served in room. everything is great. simple tour included in the room rate. however the room is not sound proof so better advised not to book during peak period unless you can sleep through people talking next room to you. and there are some on going construction so just request for a room away from the site. there is a chinese guy stuff who can communicate better. they have a horse riding too but a bit risky for toddler. wish they make a "t" bar. more safety.

    Great family gateways ”

    It’s definitely not a five star hotel experience, the facility needs a serious update. However we want to be close to the nature yet being in a controlled enviroment for our two years old son. And Borneo Rainforest has everything we looked for. Quiet resorts sites right in the rain forest, there are hiking trails as well as wood track for an easy stroll with pram. We love the two small waterfalls on the resort ground, our son played in the nature sand dune for a long time while we sitting in the shade and relax. And all the staff we spoke to are polite and attentive, the food is more than enough. And it’s super easy to get to from Singapore! 1hr 40 mins flight by AirAsia followed by 30 mins car ride, hotel can arrange pick up and drop off service. Hassle free. If you are a family with small children and want get away from your busy city life, look no further! (Do bring long sleeves and lots of mosquito repellent)
