What a place! Literally immerse in the jungle on the edge of the ocean with all the rooms overlooking the water. The hotel is brand new (which is of course positive as the rooms are pristine and everyone is so keen to make it a success) and will be even more beautiful in a couple of years when the vegetation has recovered all the structures.
Food is excellent and i recommend the Borneo cuisine cooking classes with chef Vivian: amazing experience.
Generally speaking the level of service was truly outstanding (and we are not easy clients!): we had a lady called Bowie taking care of us like we were family from check in to check out but in general the staff is all very polite efficient and speaks good english.
The spa is beautiful, very scenic and the treatment and very good.
The highlight for us was however Justin the resort Naturalist: we went 3 times with him in the surrounding jungle and we saw all sort of animals and plants but the way Justin introduces people to the jungle sharing all his knowledge and passion is unique: our kids have not stop speaking of him since and they quote him like the highest authority!
