The Secret Sanctuary is truly lovely and built on a wonderful vision. Though Cyril sadly wasn't around during my stay (I was looking forward to his cooking!!!) his staff and friends bent over backwards to make me feel welcome. In addition to walking the town and seeing the amazing Orangutan sanctuary, I got a wonderful off-the-beaten-track tour of the old mining towns by Evan and the irrepressible Edward, and was adopted by Chef Ani who made sure that I was fed (and had clean clothes!!!) approach to life -- and the Secret Sanctuary really helped to instill that philosophy.
A note to travelers that has nothing to do with the Secret Sanctuary -- my only mistake was visiting Kuching during a 4 day weekend meaning that almost everything was closed! The bright side is that I tried almost everything on the menu at home. The Umai is amazing!!!
Une très belle surprise que ce logement. Nous nous attendions certes à un endroit atypique mais c'était vraiment original et charmant. Le personnel est très accueillant et on s'y sent comme à la maison!! A mon avis un endroit à ne pas rater si on se rend à Kuching! Une belle piscine avec cascade, un spa poisson, sauna, hammam et jacuzzi a disposition pour finir de faire de cet endroit un havre de paix et de détente! On peut manger sur place la cuisine très bonne et encore un fois le personnel aux petits soins.
Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu magique!
Cyril picked me up at the airport. When I entered the Bohemian Paradise I was overwhelmed about this place. It was love at the first sight :-). I stayed there for a few days and had a really great stay. The place was built by Cyril himself and decorated with love in detail. I felt like I am in paradise.
Cyril sent me to the Orang Utans, to Bako NP, Cultural Village and other places. He was very helpful and also the staff. Especially the food was fantastic. Cyril is a god in the kitchen. He offered specialities to me like the Meding, a jungle vegetable. Wow! It was great! Because this house is also a restaurant and open to the public you can get in touch with the local people easily.
Thank you so much for the great stay in Bohemian paradise. I left Sarawak with great experiences and deep impressions. I will never forget my Sarawak family.
Thank you Cyril, Triono, Anik, Evan an all the others :-)
Cyril is very welcoming and his place is a real peaceful sanctuary. The rooms are big and quiet, with aircon, the pool with the cascade is a relief when the weather is too hot. We were a group of 6 and Cyril arranged tours for us to visit the national park and the orang outans. Everything is within 30min car.
Cyril has a restaurant attached to the house, and the meals are delicious, I strongly recommend the fish salad and the lamb !
Cyril's place is beautiful - a little hideaway paradise just outside the hustle and bustle of Kuching. Cyril himself is INCREDIBLY hospitable, and his staff are lovely. You really feel comfortable and at home.
The experience stayed true to what was promised. Privacy is truly respected at this small paradise. Our host, Cyril, was attentive to our needs and even made recommendations on our travels plans in Kuching. If you are planning to indulge into Sarawak's food, do get a bite at the in-house eatery, where the food is intricately prepared by Cyril himself. Certainly will return here in the future!
