This is a lovely resort where we stayed for 2 nights at the end of a wildlife tour of Borneo. It did the trick for us, somewhere to rest a little, swim in the excellent (but not deep enough) pool, and easy to visit the Sarawak Cultural village.
However, we were well out of season, with few people resident apart from our tour group of 14. This had the advantage that there were sufficient pool side loungers (these would be really scarce if the resort was half full!) but the bars were unopened or empty. The restaurant served a reasonably nice meal but was expensive for Malaysia (beer was 16myr plus taxes and service!) and they did provide excellently cooked potato chips (english use - not crisps!) instead of steamed rice at no additional cost.
Breakfast was very Asian, there was less "European" type food than at any other place we stayed at (all of which would have been at least one star less than this resort) and considering about half of the residents were European this seemed very poor - just some Muesli would have been helpful. And, as others have mentioned, this was also the only place where communicating in English was difficult; the receptionist didn't appear to have the simplest knowledge using vocabularly related to the hotels amenities!
The room was large, the bed luxurious, and all worked fine with a powerful shower. Sitting on the balcony in the early evening was lovely.
