“The Village House is an easy and traffic-free 40-45 minute drive from Kuching at the foot of Mount Santubong. It’s absolutely beautiful – it’s clear the owners have put tremendous thought and effort into creating a relaxing little oasis, and they’ve accomplished as much. The grounds are beautiful – very green and very relaxing with a luxury, boutique-y feel – when you see it, you can’t believe how little they charge to stay here! The rooms are immaculate with gorgeous four-poster beds and well thought-out décor. The hotel is really, really gorgeous, but the highlight is the service – they went WAY above and beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. We forgot a backpack, so the owner lent us one – and not only that, but very kindly stocked it with bug spray and band-aids for our climb up Santubong! Then, when we got a little stranded and couldn’t get a taxi back, the hotel chef came to pick us up – couldn’t believe how helpful they were. We did two activities while we were here (climbed Santubong and a day at Bako) and they organized everything for us at VERY reasonable prices. We spent no time at all making our own arrangements, which made the weekend super enjoyable and relaxing. I couldn’t recommend this place more highly. We’ve been to the Kuching area three times and this is by far and away the best place we’ve stayed – and in all my travels, the best customer service I’ve ever received from a hotel!
