Beautiful gardens and facility but it is overdue for a renovation and the internet was not good while there. We had to pay extra for more devices in our room and that wasn't expected. Additionally, it was very slow. No restaurants stay open late, which is also odd.

We went to Bakubong Lodge from JB for the weekend. Initially we went into Sun City (next door - 5km) for a look but way to plastic for our liking. Booked online at the Sun City Gates and went to the Lodge. Lodge is inside a game reserve / national park. Price included breakfast, dinner and a safari tour.
Beds comfortable, room was great, views into the bush.
Staff super friendly. Food was great.
Tour - we saw 4 of the big 5, and had an amazing time
Found the staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Went out of their way to help us on booking a one day safari with an external company.
Enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend it for a short break
Staff were excellent, hotel and grounds are superb - one of the best pool areas, including a waterfall. Only drawback was waiting until 2pm to get the room - we did get an upgrade however to a room al with large balcony. Breakfast was also very good.

Kenneth, our game driver, was knowledgeable and a safe and capable guide. We managed to see all 4 of the reserve's cheetahs. The facility is lovely. The food was delicious and the staff were attentive. The power cut out during the night so our toasty tent got colder, and then switched on in the AM...but not with quite enough time to warm up before having to do the morning drive. One other note - it might be useful to have driving directions on the website for those driving down from the north. I should have emailed for directions but decided to wing it instead. Friendly neighbor's on the route were kind enough to draw us a map. Overall it was a terrific stay and I will absolutely recommend it to friends.
