Borneo Highlands is a great place for relaxing with beautiful landscape & spectacular view. Weather is cool in the early morning and night.
Paying for MYR199 nett for 1st night & MYR 159nett (Par room) for 2nd night with good hot American
Breakfast, free transfer from the highland foothill (takes 20 mins on a winding road); complementary entrance to the spa during the facebook’s fans promotion is a steal.
The room is small but cozy. There isn't any telephone,fridge or television in the room.
You may watch free movie at the in-house mini theatre or visit the spa with hot and cold Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna.
Ask for Ms Margaret, if you need a good message (20% discount for guest).
They have quite a number of paid activities- Mother Nature Challenge (Mt Penrissen) half day tour to climb to the top of Mt Penrissen – the highest peak
In Kuching at 4,363 above sea level & enjoy the breathtaking view at the top, 2 hrs tour will be Bidayuh Head House Trail, Rainforest Jungle Trail, Highlight Rainforest tour etc.
We took the Highlands Rainforest guided tour MYR30nett/pax – Kalimantan View Pt, Horticulture Nursery, Organic farm etc. Actually it is not difficult to do it yourself if you have strong legs, the path are winding and hilly. It’s better to visit the Kalimantan view point in the early morning.
There’s another spectacular view will be at the horse stable where you can view the distance sea of clouds.
It is about half an hour walk from the resort taking short cut from path facing the Monastery.
We took all our meal at Annah Rais Café which only served vegetarian food, so so and good (20% discount). It will be good to include tofu or dry bean curd in their meal instead of egg.
The vegetables were from their own organic farm.
We had a good time and we will come back again with more people next time when there’s a promotion.
