General Information

"Longhouse style accommodation"

Tucked away beneath the Lambir Hills, just along the coast from Miri, Sarawak, is TreeTops Lodge; situated on the outskirts of the village named  Siwa Jaya, which has about 20 houses in it. Originally a small weekend retreat (built in just 7 days!), the house has been totally re-built over the last 2 years and now comprises guest rooms downstairs  with modern shower and toilet facilities, plus a large outside sitting and eating area/patio on the ground floor.

Verandah     Verandah

Above there is a 12 foot verandah, bar and kitchens, main lounge plus owners accommodation. The verandah is a cool, breezy place high up at tree-top level; an ideal spot to take breakfast in the mornings or for a few drinks in the evening as the sun sets on the far side.

Pool A 15 foot pool, recently tiled and refurbished, is built into the lower terrace - very convenient for a cool dip day or night!

Around and below the house are 2 acres of carefully tended fruit trees - orange, lemon, rambutaan, mango plus pineapples and vegetables, and right at the bottom is a small dam with fish (Tilapia) for breeding (and eating!). In the centre of the dam is a small traditional hut for the use of fishermen (and other dreamers!). Beyond the immediate garden are six acres of farming land, planted with rice (padi fields) or maize of various kinds and these lead down to the river; still further takes you into the Lambir Forest Reserve.

Being a little way out of town (about 20 minutes), there are few facilities nearby: a couple of village shops and the odd private food stall. Breakfast and other meals can be had to a set menu by prior arrangement. As people are out and about exploring the local areas, it is at times  more convenient  to eat out or on the way to somewhere.

The beach is just a few minutes away and there is also a half an acre area down by the beach with a little hut for washing and changing and where a boat is kept.

Life at the Lodge in Siwa village is slightly primitive, but totally peaceful !! Experience the ages old traditional lifestyle of a longhouse (all our staff are Iban, Kelabit or Kayan, - except your English host of course), but with a few amenities included; we also visit the local Iban longhouses nearby so you can experience the real thing!

Relax like you've never done before...... Longhouse style, but with comfort!
