In catering to the discerning traveller, The Ranee boasts an all-day dining/bar serving local and international cuisine, a cafe offering freshly baked delicacies, an in-house tour desk, and even a business meeting room. The Ranee is capable of hosting intimate cocktail receptions for functions up to 40pax (product launches, team building, informal business gatherings, private dinner parties, etc). At The Ranee we'll take you on a journey that celebrates the charm and romance of a bygone era.

A Quant little restaurant as part of the hotel. The food is decent and the Tuak (local rice wine) is awesome. They have special Tuak cocktails mixed with a variety of juices and other beverages that are great. They also sell their Tuak bottled for you to take back. Great

Dear dharmnava, Hello! Thank you for dropping by. It is so good to know that you found our cocktails awesome! :-) We have quite a long list of cocktails concocted by combining Tuak (Sarawak's famed rice wine) and Langkau (Sarawak's very own distilled liquor). We are very proud of our local products and this is our way of giving Sarawak's rural entrepreneurs our support. We love that you enjoyed your evening here and we do hope to see you again very soon. Till then, only the very best wishes from all of us at The Ranee! Kind Regards, Ann Chua Hotel Manager

If you are lucky enough to pass through the quaint town of Kuching on your Borneo and Malaysia adventures, you cannot do much better than the Ranee Suites. Located in the heart of the old town and across from the Sarawak River, everything in Kuching is a short walk away. The

Went there for tea and had their chocolate cake, which was quite delicious. The dim, tranquil atmosphere of their dining area (we were the only ones there at the time) made for a quiet respite from the bustle of traffic and people just beyond their doorstep. The vintage display

Dear Ellina28, Thank you for dropping by The Ranee for tea. The cake you had was Tuak Chocolate Cake. It is our specialty and is only available here. We are glad you enjoyed it. Do try our Buffalo Beef Balls when you drop by again. It will definitely tickle your taste-buds! :-) See you soon! Kind Regards, Ann Chua Hotel Manager

Dear Global65066715111, Hello! Thank you so much for the review. The New Year Countdown and the Launch of Visit Sarawak 2019 was right outside our hotel on 31st Dec 2018. It was a huge celebration with fireworks and all. Rehearsals for the event went on for a few nights before the big do. We are so sorry you had trouble sleeping during your stay here. We hope you will come for another visit soon. Please do let us know and we promise we will assign you a quiet room that does not face the main street for your stay. :-) Till then, have a most fabulous January! Kind Regards, Ann Chua Hotel Manager

We stayed in the Elizabeth Suite. It was a lovely and spacious room. The only gripe would be lack of electric plug sockets to charge up all our electrical bits. The room didn’t really have a view to look out on either but it wasn’t really an issue. Overall it was a lovely space and I would certainly stay there again.

Hi, no pool at the Ranee, it’s a small boutique hotel so no room for a pool. Hope this helps.

Hello WeiHanLai, Thank you for your message. We do not accept children below 12 yrs of age because of the design of the rooms and the public areas. However, sometimes we have guests who have made reservations online and who show up with children. When that happens, guests will be required to sign an Indemnity Form. We do not have baby cots and extra beds. The Ranee has 24 suites, 21 of which come with 1 king sized bed each (maximum 2 persons per suite). 2 other rooms come with 2 single beds each (maximum 2 persons per suite) and the last one is a Deluxe Family Suite which comes with 1 king sized bed + 1 queen sized bed (maximum 3 persons in the suite). We hope the above explanation is satisfactory. Please do not hesitate to let us know should you require further clarification. Kind Regards Ann Chua Hotel Manager We hope the

Hello Maggie, From Kuching Airport to The Ranee, there are 2 options : 1) Pre-Book a private transfer with us @ RM95.40 per vehicle per way (max 3 adults). A bigger vehicle would cost slightly more. 2) By taxi (proceed to the Taxi Counter after exiting the Arrival Hall. Purchase the Taxi Coupon @ about RM28 per taxi per way. It is about 20-30 minutes drive (depending on traffic) to our hotel in the city centre. Hope the above helps. Kind Regards Ann Chua Hotel Manager
