Customer Reviews

"The secret sanctuary is made by the wonderful welcome provided by it's owner Cyril and his girlfriend Julia. The place itself is an oasis of calm although our taxi driver found it tricky to find, (I suggest you print off the map provided as it is slightly outside of the town itself). Cyril kindly arranged a few tours we wanted to do and is very keen to ensure his guests get to experience the "real Kuching" and was helpful at providing information on where to go and what to do in Borneo. The accommodation itself was clean and comfortable but is basic and there are lots of places to sit and relax in the communal areas. We were there whilst the place was relatively quiet but I can imagine if full it could feel quite crowded. Finally, Cyril is a fabulous cook and uses extremely fresh ingredients (some from his own fish stocks)" Melissa_Williams, London

 

"The secret sanctuary it's something you can imagine! It's better than when you look at the photos on web site. You can feel like at home with Cyril (the crazy/cool owner) and Julia.

The cottage it's quite far from kuching but it's the best choice to have a different experience. The cottage has everything you need! It's the best place to relax and eat (Ciryl is funny obsessed by food and beers).There are different rooms but ask to have a room with more private space because the cottage in the evening becomes a restaurant too. If you are cool TRY IT!" Pinnychan, Catania, Italy
