An excellent, five-star establishment set right in the middle of the jungle. Accommodation is in longhouse-style apartments, set on stilts above the forest floor, and each with its own balcony. There are currently 88 rooms, with 188 expected to be available by the end of 1997. Over 85% of the staff are locals, members of the Berawan tribe. Facilities include a pool, coffee house and buffet restaurant.
Rack rates range from 210-500 Malaysian Ringit (RM) ($US50-118) per room per day, plus 15% taxes. Packages are an outstanding deal: for example, a two-night program, from RM390 ($US92) per head, includes two nights accommodation, two breakfasts, lunches and dinners, transfers, guide fees and visits to all four publicly-accessible caves.
