Had a few issues with a rollaway as we travelled with our daughter. Check all bookings before you go. If you are travelling via a group or package deal check the meal bookings as the hotel is a price per dish facility but the group arte is for "dinner", was confusing and I believe I was overcharged. The back rooms...

Stayed for three nights and it wasn't enough! The hotel is set along the river, on raised boardwalks, giving a lovely rustic but luxurious feel.

Dear heatherkmason, Thank you for your lovely review. The team and I were thrilled to see 5 stars and read of a great experience.

We took a two day and one night tour. My only regret was not having more time there. The whole experience was incredible, the incessant sounds from the cicadas, the jungle of Borneo surrounding a five star, modern, comfortable, and luxurious Marriott resort. We ate dinner there and chose something local, like fried noodles. It was all good. The staff...

Dear 88pansy88, As you say, 1 night is just not enough! Very pleasing to read you had such a memorable experience. You mention the cicadas which are 'in season' at the moment. the certainly provide a rainforest symphony around the resort and National Park at this time of year.

From the meet and greet at the airport to checking out, it was smooth. Enjoy the scenery and using the facilities or dining in their inHouse restaurant, it was pleasurable.

Beautiful surroundings, a resort in the middle of Borneo jungle, very impressive. lovely rooms, friendly staff and very clean. The whole place is spacious and tranquil.
