Found this place on Trip Advisor, thought it was a good idea to get her first since you get picked up on the airport. An exciting jungle vibe strikes you as soon as you get through the door.
The beautiful couple of Cyril & Julia runs this place with love and care, within 5 minutes we had been shown our room & had a refreshing drink in our hands.
As we were travelling with our 1 year old daughter Cyril had arranged a nice room with our own veranda, Moa loved it now she had her own crawling space.
The Secret Sanctuary is like a big family, so friendly and you get treated like a king
Lush gardens, small cosy rooms, beautiful waterfall swimming pool, fish spa, big showers inside & outside.
The food is worth plenty of words, Cyril himself is an excellent cook and did the most of our food, amazingly fresh & really exciting ingredient.
A must is Cyril´s variation of Umai ( Fresh fish salad made with white snapper. )
We also had som really good jungle fern, picked the very same day.
River prawns with a succulent tomatosauce was also among our favorites.
The other thing that makes this restaurang so worth visiting is Cyril´s passionate about good drinks. I havent seen many places in Asia who can offer you this good quality of wines, many good labels and really good priced to.
The service is so friendly you almost forget that you are in a restaurant.
Cyril & his local friends helped us out with all our tours, orangutang, night safari & a visit to Baku national park ( rent a guide ) was among our favorites.
We had an amazing visit, decided to stay all our 6 days of our visit to Kuching.
We are already discussing how we can manage to come back again.
The sooner the better, the most superb place to stay if you like true friends to arrange the best of Sarawak, if you like authentic cooking and have a feel for good drinks.
A place where time stands still.
Thanks to Cyril & Julia who enriched our lives for 6 days in Borneo.
