I stayed for one week at Cyril's place and it was just amazing. It is a quiet SBD relaxed spot in the middle of Kuching. The food they offer is delicious. You can even have a fresh fish out of one of the ponds. My room provided a lot of space and the hammock inside provided me a good afternoon...

Very awesome place. Lots of facility and very tranquil. Only downside is the mosquito at night. But the resort gave us mosquito nets and mosquito killing lamps. Very friendly staff that goes the extra mile to make the stay more awesome. We had an early flight the next day. Staff woke up early and made breakfast for us. Appreciate it...

“Our main tip would be to make sure you have clear instructions of where to go - print a map as it's in a residential area so taxi drivers appear to need a little guidance beyond the address”

“The single rooms, particularly those perching at 2nd level could be better. More privacy and probably better kept but no attached bathrooms though.”
