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.
"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!
"Basic Need Only"
Stayed here for a night and quickly check-out the next day. checked-in was alright. Breakfast and dinner not much of varieties. Taste and outlook very weird for a Creme Caramel Pudding and Fried Rice tasteless. Nothing much to do at night so we end up sleep early after the dinner. Don't expect WIFI in the room and WIFI only available at the lobby area and slow too. Maxis and Digi line may have a problem of reception if you stay in this resort. Room have a kind of musty smell and could have been no one stay for a longer period of time (perhap). Overall, if you like long house concept and don't mind with the long journey from Kuching International airport.....your are most welcome!
Stayed here with my family & a group of friends. The resort is situated beside the hydroelectric dam within the forest. It is quiet and relaxing. A rare gem for someone who wants to escape to the peaceful nature, yet at the same time, can still be pampered with some modern amenities/conveniences. The staffs were friendly, and you can see that they tried their best to accommodate our needs & wants. A big 'THANK YOU' to each and every one of them! The building structures are a little old, but that actually adds to its attractiveness. Overall, they are well maintained, and the natural environment/surroundings are not disturbed unnecessarily. Everything blends in well. Just sit and relax near the jetty during the sunset hour is an enjoyment that those dwellings in the cities could never match. The wifi near the reception is strong enough to give you connection with outside world.
"Beautiful setting "
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of an organised tour including a visit to aan Iban Longhouse. You arrive by boat and there is quite a steep climb up stairs and a hill before you reach reception. All of the reception staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was in block 7 and I think we were the only people in this block. The rooms are lovely and equipped with most of what you need to get by. The air con can be a little overpowering and difficult to work. The view from your room looks out the back and if you to leave your room and go our to the veranda to get a look at the fabulous view out the front. Meals times were a bit confusing, as our meals were included we're weren't whether we had to have the buffet (which there isn't a huge choice) or ro order from the menu (which seemed quite expensive). Breakfast has the best choice of food in the buffet, that's if it has been replenished after other guests massively overfilling thier tables with food. The pool area is lovely and peaceful. We went on the canopy walk which was full of fantastic views if you are feeling brave. This hotel could do with a bit of tlc and some renovation but I would return here as it is a lovely place for tranquillity.
