Stay at this resort at your own RISK. Resort Management of this establishment neglect their guest security. We had our room broken into the second day we got there. The thief took RM850 from our room between 5:15 and 6:30 while we were at the pool. We lodged a report of the incident with the hotel security who promised to investigate the matter. We found out the next day that we were not the only victim, a guest below our room lost a 1.5 carat diamond ring. She too lodge a report to the police. She told us that the hotel demanded that if she take the hotel transportation to the police station, she will have to pay them for the cost. The management, Resort Manager and Operations Director both admitted to the failure in their security and a severe breach. We were informed that someone had taken a master key and made a duplicate without authorisation. We were informed that their SOP, Standard Operating Procedure was not followed which allowed this individual the opportunity use the hotel tools to commit the crime. For their admission of their negligence, hotel management refused to bear responsibility of the whole fiasco. We reported the incident to the Borneo Post;

... a street behind the hostel that didn't serve food itself but ordered food from the local restaurants for us. We sat outside on a quiet, friendly street listening to Elvis. I absolutely loved it. There is something incredibly charming about Kuching and the longer I was there the more I liked it. We were then heading towards Monkey Bar in town as it's affiliated with the sanctuary and half of the profits go directly to helping the animals. On our way however we bumped into the ...
... graves – really gave us food for thought about how un-multicultural the UK is at times!
We arrived at the wildlife park early enough to have a walk up to the viewing area and read some of the information about the 27 individual orang-utans who call the reserve home. At about 8.45 the tour bus arrived and we were joined by around 50 other tourists (we thought we might be lucky and be the only ones!) not all of whom were observing the no-talking rule and thus got a bit ...
... the build just like that. For me it has gone by in a flash. The builds are a fantastic experience. A great opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself, working with similar minded people who are trying to help our fellow human beings.
From here we move the Rest & Relaxation phase. Tomorrow we are visiting an Orang Utan rehabilitation centre in the morning and I hope to organise a city tour for the afternoon.
... gluttony. We taxied from the airport to our hotel, which was another Hilton jobby courtesy of points. Security appeared worryingly tight with a police check point at each end of the road outside and two armed police in the Hilton lobby along with a plethora or internal security guards. As we checked in, I asked if this level of security was the norm and we were relieved to learn that is was just because the Sultan of Brunei was about to check in. He was in Kuching to support ...
Day 25: Once we arrived at the Matang Rehab centre we were shown around the complex and introduced to some furry residents including the sun bears and Orangutan. After lunch we helped with the farming, weeding and planting which helps to provide food for the animals. We all looked fantastic in our traditional banana leaf farmer hats! In the evening we were shown some videos about animal tourism and the truth behind some 'so called' ...
