Set on the edge of spectacular rainforest, the Hilton Batang Ai Longhouse Resort is Hilton’s only jungle property. The Batang Ai national park is a 2-hour boat ride away, but rainforest surrounds the hotel waiting to be discovered. Unlike most of the commercialized cities in Malaysia, Batang Ai is one of the last few unspoilt places in Sarawak. Surrounded by mountains and the unspoiled ancient rainforests of Sarawak, this 58-acre eco-tourism resort comprises 11 indigenous timber longhouses based on the native architectural design of the Iban tribe.
Guests of the resort can enjoy a wide variety of water sports and jungle activities such as canoeing, kayaking, longboat excursions, visits to the native longhouses, jungle trekking and hiking, along with trips to nearby pepper, cocoa, rubber and oil palm estates and traditional open-air markets at Sri Aman and historic Fort Alice.
Depart from Kuching by air-conditioned vehicle for Hilton Batang Ai Resort, 166 miles from Kuching City, passing through scenic countryside consisting of quaint little towns, village, padi fields, pepper and oil palm plantations interspersed with secondary and virgin jungle as the road starts to wind and undulate as you go deeper into the interior.
Stop for lunch at Lachau, a small town on the way to the resort. Arrive at the Hydro lake at Lubok Antu board a shuttle ferry to the resort situated on the southern bank. Overnight at The Hilton Batang Ai Resort. If you arrive at the resort before 1600 hrs, you can proceed for a Nature Walk with the hotel recreation staff if weather permits.
