If we had known the Kebun was going to be so awesome, we would have stayed there the entire time we were in Kuching. My husband and I stayed in Olivia's Bungalow and the villa itself was a really good size and very nicely kept. In addition to a car, GPS, and cell phone, we were given a fresh loaf of bread every night along with our dinner, and lunch was always an option if we were going to be around. The fridge was also stocked with different fruit, eggs, butter, and anything you might want for breakfast. We found a bottle of their homemade rice wine in the fridge and it was delicious! Way better than store bought varieties. You truly will not find a better deal than this anywhere else near Kuching. We also got to see the giant Rafflesia flower while we were there. Adrian, the owner told us it was blooming and that we absolutely must go see it. It was a fantastic experience!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Kebun was started 12 years ago as our plan for a retirement home in Sarawak, East Malaysia. Adrian’s Bungalow was put up after being disassembled from the movie set of The Sleeping Dictionery. Olivia’s was only put up only two years later when it was taken out of storage which was also disassembled from the same movie set. The farmstay side of the business only started in April 2010 after much encouragement from friends.The Kebun is not just accommodation, it is an experience. If you would like to get a taste for the basics of a simple lifestyle in a beautiful tropical setting, which is of fresh gardens of organic herbs & vegetables, picking your own tropical fruits, dining on fresh farm raised livestock, fishing for your own freshwater fish & simple accommodation with little impact to the environment, or even to help out with feeding all of the animals at the end of the day’s activities and again in the morning, then your are up for a unique Sarawakian adventure at The Kebun. ... more less
