Over Aiman Batang Ai Resort & Retreat
Dit resort is zeer geschikt voor natuurliefhebbers. Het is gelegen aan de rand van een regenwoud en de omgeving biedt u dan ook allerlei prachtige natuurbeelden. Zo ligt het Batang Ai National Park op vaarafstand en de Wong Luih Waterfalls liggen op korte afstand. Bij terugkomst kunt u zich bij Nanga Mepi, het restaurant van het resort, tegoed doen aan een jungle barbecue.

Gelegen aan de rand van een regenwoud, op ongeveer 2 uur varen van het Batang Ai National Park.
Batang Ai is een groot stuwmeer midden in de jungle van Sarawak, op ongeveer 280 kilometer van Kuching. Hier wonen traditioneel de beruchtste koppensnellers van Borneo, de Ibans. Nog steeds wonen zij in lange houten huizen op palen, die onderdak bieden aan hele dorpsgemeenschappen.
"Two nights on Batan Ai Reservoir"
The lodge location is beautiful! Christmas decorations had already been made and looked very festive. For us hearing Christmas music while swimming in 87 degree F weather made a smile. Service was good and staff very friendly. Our breakfasts were good with adequate variety - nothing fancy but something for everyone to enjoy before starting the day. We were in the 4th house and found the walk there very pleasant. The rooms definitely could use a bit of remodeling , especially the showers. The hot, humid climate really makes maintenance of such an older, wooden complex an ongoing challenge. Still, the effort is being made.
"Two days visit to Sarawak Batang Ai Lake"
Aiman Batang Resort has the shape of a Longhouse located in the Batang Ai Lake. The hotel needs much maintenance, old style bedrooms, old style bathrooms which need to be refurbished. Personnel is kind and available. Food is good and served in pleasant way.
"Great potential, needs TLC"
We stayed here for 1 night. The location is great. The rooms definitely need to be renovated. The bathroom was not the cleanest and I wore sandals when taking a shower. The food at the restaurant was average. Overall, I would stay here again if it is renovated.
"Careful with cash it goes missing"
Place is alright but very tired. Location pretty. We took most of our valuables with us on excursions except a small amount of hidden cash in luggage as there was no safety deposit box in the room. On our return someone had riffled through our stuff found the cash and helped themselves to some thinking we would not notice until too late. I know you should always be careful so felt a bit silly but also annoyed. Management did nothing after we reported it. Good luck!
"Beautiful location, great property, needs some TLC"
The real selling factor for this property is no doubt the location. It takes a good few hours to drive here from Kuching and get the boat across the lake, but it really is stunning. Located on the hills by the lake, with a great view across the water and the evening sun, the location of the property is superb. The buildings themselves are replica longhouses of the type the local Iban live in. In themselves they are impressive pieces of architecture, and provide a fantastic backdrop to the forest. One of the greatest points is the quietness of the place. There is nothing else around apart from the birds, cicadas and your thoughts, as well as the occasional person. If you go for the canopy walk (and you should), you'll take a route out the back of the hotel up to a sturdy rope bridge with incredible views - bring your selfie stick! Also make sure you bring water, as it gets sticky up there, but the route itself is fairly easy. The rooms themselves are simple and in the middle of being renovated, which is needed. The overall feeling of the property is that it could do with some TLC and a lick of paint. But the essentials are covered and, for me, this wasn't too much of a problem as you will not want to spend to much time in the room. There is a lot to do, from hikes and nature walks to visiting an Iban longhouse and zooming around the various water channels on a longboat. With the Iban you can practice your blowpipe skills, drink a few too many of the local rice wine and rice whisky, and witness/take part in traditional dancing. A great morning capped off with lunch with the Iban. In the afternoon, the hotel has a very nice pool to while away time with, 2 pool tables, a well stocked bar and the food is very palatable as well. Overall a lovely location to spend a couple of nights to enjoy the isolation of the rainforest. Unfortunately the rating range of TA jumps from average to very good - this property is certainly not average but at the same time needs some work to be considered very good/excellent. I'm optimistic about the refurbishments being done and we had a lot of fun here, so will stick with my rating of very good. Worth a visit!
