Photo of Treetops Lodge
Nestled on the top of a hill with views of the edge of Lambir Hills National Park in the distance, this is, to use an overused cliche, the perfect getaway. This lodge is in the style of an old Malay house, with the addition of a massive veranda. Its gardens are filled with fruit trees and a small plunge pool for when all that relaxing just gets too much like hard work. Your amiable hosts, Esther and Mike, are never too busy for a cup of tea and chat, and their cats and dogs make great companions if you are travelling on your own. A beach is located about 20 minutes’ walk from the lodge, where Esther and Mike have a beach hut; the water doesn’t look the most inviting but spending an afternoon reading in the beach hut and listening to the waves is a perfectly pleasant way to pass the time here. Accommodation here ranges from basic dorm-style beds in the open-air longhouse to air-con double rooms inside the main lodge area. All rooms come with a basic breakfast and WiFi. The cheaper rooms are inside the longhouse building positioned 30 seconds’ away from the main lodge; these all have fans and a shared open-air toilet and cold-water shower area. The longhouse has a tin roof but there are gaps between the walls and the roof for ventilation, so if you hate creepy crawlies, you should bring your own mosquito net, although they do provide mosquito coils at night. An added bonus is that there is a WiFi router in the longhouse, so you don’t have to make the short walk up to the main building to use the internet. The main lodge has a few rooms and these are all sealed so no creepies can get in and all have air-con and private bathrooms. The lodge itself is situated about 30 minutes by public bus from Miri (take the number 13 from the local bus terminal, it should cost 4 ringgit, get off at the last bus stop) so is quite isolated. It is more than likely that you’ll eat all your meals here and the food is quite reasonably priced; you can get a snack lunch for somewhere between 3 and 8 ringgit. They also do a more substantial meal for 22 ringgit in the evening which includes dessert plus tea or coffee. Do book in advance so that you can be picked up at the bottom of the hill, otherwise it’s a mile’s walk from the bus stop to the lodge.
