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.
We had a great time staying at this resort. The boat ride to the hotel was great and seeing the long houses was a great experience. We tried the blow dart and almost got a bullseye! Dinners were great. We also had an amazing massage. Loved the place. Would definitely come back.
"Lovely nature, Culture, Food"
Location - Amazing site in the heart of the jungle. Serene place to recharge. Culture - Rooms are styled like Iban longhouses. Iban motifs are everywhere in the hotel. Tour to experience a real Iban longhouse is available. Nature - Canopy walk and educational jungle trek is just behind hotel. If u go for the Wong Irup waterfalls tour, choose the pansuh (food steamed in bamboo) option and hotel staff will prepare food right next to the waterfalls (highlight!). Can request boat ride to stop by sunken forest for photos. Our lady guide was v knowledgeable. Food - Good. The serving size is good too. Rooms - Clean/comfortable and decorated with Iban motifs. The decor may be a bit dated but it adds to the rustic charm of staying in an Iban longhouse styled hotel. Service - The hotel hires local English speaking Ibans. Friendly staff. The management told us that they are training them during this transition from Hilton. Community - what the hotel doesn't brag (and it should) is that it's giving back to the local community by hiring local Iban staff, buying local fish/products, paying fees for long boat rentals, long house visit and waterfalls visit. Overall - Would recommend this as a short getaway if you visit Sarawak.
"Impressive scenery, nature and culture"
It is a long drive coming from Kuching, but it is worth a visit. The hotel is a bit old and you can see they have some difficulties keeping the standards as high as during the Hilton era, but it is still worth to go and stay at Aiman Batang Ai. Especially to visit the long house. Seeing how these people live their lives. Dancing and eating with them. It was very interesting and a wonderful experience. Also swimming in the waterfall was nice. They should however refuse people coming in with food and cooking material, sleeping with too many people in the same room. This will run the place down very quickly and will not bring in the money they need to maintain the place. Also i think they should ask people not to swim in the pool with their normal clothes (even underwear). Swimsuits are far more hygienic. Bring mosquito repellent!
"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.
