"Calm hotel by the beach, lovely pool"
The hotel is set in its own grounds. There is a nature reserve which you can only enter on an organised visit, the last orang-utan left for Sepilok just before we arrived (April 16). The pool is lovely, plenty of seating by and near the pool although not all have shade. Unfortunately there were jelly fish so did not venture into the sea. The room with a sea view, which I would recommend, was lovely. King size bed, a double day bed, and balcony, great for views of the sunset. Water, tea & coffee, and fruit were provided daily, there was even a mosquito coil, although you matches, for the evening on the balcony. Breakfast had a vast choice, although they didn't identify what was vegetarian. Expect to pay hotel prices for the restaurants (3 to 4 times more). There is a shop where you can get snacks. Other than the internet cafe there was no where else for a coffee. All staff were polite and helpful. If you were around, cool flannel, melon and ice cream were handed out during the day. It was a lovely place for a bit of luxury for 5 days.
