    This hotel was just something very different and we loved it! We've told all our friends about it since we got back! There's not much space in the room admittedly, which completely suited us, but for some people this may be a struggle, particularly if you have lots of luggage or children. If you're travelling light and solo/couple, this place is lovely. There is a nice infinity pool. Breakfast was ok. It was nice being in the tranquil jungle. It is quite a long drive from the airport, but was relatively cheap to get there. Overall, a few good experience for a few days!

    It more suitable for couple or youngsters, as it was not kids friendly, as the safety for kids is low. My youngest son fall from pool while sitting on the side and high on floor full of sharp stones, luckily no needle need for the wound. As for the breakfast, it was expensive for my kid as I pay my 5 years old boy breakfast and not much choices to take. It's a place not suitable for family with kids, but might be good for couples.

    Think twice before booking!

    Arrived to concrete capsule “hotel” after rain. Concrete “drainpipe-rooms” were damp and smelling mouldy. We had booked three nights, discussed dampness issue with hotel management after first night. Manager contacted Expedia/hotels.com to cancel and refunded two nights. Credit to manager. We learnt concrete capsules are not sealed against environment. Unless correct protection is applied to concrete this is worrying for structure ..... and health. If you want a gimmicky experience, with a 6 square meter “capsule”, no convenience (e.g. no table, no chair, no clothes rack, etc) no privacy and very few options for food or transportation but pay a premium price for Borneo accommodation The Culvert is for you. We experienced and at first opportunity checked out.

    We like the unique architecture and landscape, but we didn’t like the fact there is quite a bit of mosquitos around...
