We chose to stay here for 2 nights - just before the Rainforest festival. The rooms and layout of the hotel are beautiful - very cozy. On arrival our room was not fully ready and it appears as if on the whole staff are thinly spread and management oversight is lacking. whilst staff are friendly there did not seem to be enough hands on deck so to speak.
I found the food disappointing. Everyone speaks of great food - we found it to be average with a limited option. The one night electricity went out in much of the area for 3 hours. Luckily there were only 2 parties eating there - but they struggled to cope. Vegetarian options are very limited.
I think punching above its weight in terms of food and accommodation. The second night we stayed there , the process was significantly higher for the Rainforest festival - and certainly not worth the price.
We had specifically gone there because of the great review s for a moment of quiet! On hindsight we would rather do a day visit from Kutching .
I think renewed attention needs to be given to the food and also general overall management.
