Batik Boutique Hotel is in an excellent location in Kuching, only a few minutes walk to the waterfront. The room was clean, huge and stylish with lots of different types of lighting options. There was quality teas & coffee in the room and they seemed really observant if you ran out of anything, it would be replaced without asking. The staff, especially Jackie, were super helpful with directions on getting to Bako National Park by yourself and also let you know if anyone else is around wanting to do the same thing as you, on the same day. The breakfast was good and they had a cute courtyard at the back. The hotel has a great design & the frontage is easy to spot. Only thing I would suggest is perhaps seeing if the rooms could be made up a little earlier in the day. I seemed to get back from trips in the afternoon and the rooms were being cleaned then,when you needed a shower! I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay and was the best place I stayed in, in Borneo!
Conveniently located at about 5-7 mins from waterfront, the hotel is comfortable, nicely maintained and staff has special zeal for service. They will go that extra mile to bring smile and make your stay comfortable. Nearby you have Sarawak plaza where you can dine at KFC or Pizza hut. The best thing I like about this property is the service and friendliness of staff. Awesome!
Tastefully decorated room with all the amenities you need. Reception offered us a good few drinks of Tuak (local rice wine) and check in was a breeze. Slight difficulty if you drive, as there is very limited parking. Great value for money. Will be staying here again for sure.
Great location and incredibly helpful staff, especially Jo-Lynn. Thank you. They went over and above the call for duty, giving us a lift to the airport twice and helped us organise some travel. Easy to talk to at the downstair bar and incredibly accommodating. Thanks a lot guys, you really made our time in Kuching.
Very late arrival, but warm friendly greeting on arrival. This set the tone for our stay. Jackie and her team volunteered really good advice on trips and especially on dining options. They changed our room set up with asking, because they could tell it didn't quite work for us. And most memorably they shared in our delight and baked a celebratory cake when our son learnt he had been awarded a first class masters degree. They definitely go the extra mile. Thanks
This hotel and staff made our holiday. The staff went above and beyond their job to make us welcome, help us with tours and show us kuching. Highly recommend to anyone travelling to this area. Loved it! Lisa
Simply, the best stay we've had on our travels. Batik Boutique in Kuching exceeded our wildest expectations. Our hosts were incredibly friendly and hospitable. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were always willing to help out with any challenge or question we had. Of particular mention are Jackie (the owner) and Jo-Lynn (unintentionally hilarious comedic hard-working manager-type person ... although official job title still unknown). My partner and I got to know both quite well over several days and evenings at the bar. Both came across as strong, intelligent, worldly and congenial women. It was a pleasure to share their company. We always felt welcome and accepted. We will miss the rambling good-humored discussion and debate about all manner of subjects. Many hours flew by without notice in an effortless exchange of ideas, jokes and sharing of experiences. All staff were gracious and welcoming. My advice is get to know them as they will surprise. Many varied and interesting backgrounds, multi-linguistic, well travelled, and good natured. Oh, the rooms!!!! Having read some other reviews, I'm a bit perplexed .... for example, the tiled and wooden floors are attractive as well as functional ... it rains a lot in Kuching so walking wet shoes and dripping clothes through carpet probably wouldn't be a wise idea. It's not cold either, so not having carpet doesn't in any way lower the level of comfort. According to Jo-Lynn, the coldest it gets in Kuching is the lowest setting on the air conditioner. The water was always hot and running during our stay. The bed was very comfortable and clean. The internal lift made it easy to mange our luggage to and from our room. We really liked the Batik feel of the hotel. It's sobering for us to know that all other hotel stays will be judged against this one.
A boutique hotel built to support the local economy personalising the type of trip desired into reality. By that I mean the wonderful staff at Batik Boutique were able to assist with a foodies travel plan, the adventurer, culture, art etc. We honestly (despite trying to research) had no plan upon arrival and then any plans we did have, the long weekend and string of public holidays ruined them. Luckily enough, the friendly and approachable staff at Batik were able to assist. To say this is where the hospitality and service stopped would be satisfactory, but surprised as we were the hospitality kept coming, meeting and having conversations with the owner Jackie, she even had gone to local stalls and purchased buns and delicious local delicacies for the patrons. It was however (the titleless) Jo-Lynn, her intelligent witty and comedic conversations kept us spending more time downstairs than in our room. Enough about the service, the hotel itself, located on a corner situated well in the middle of all the action made it easy to transport ourselves whether uber, public transport or our little legs to wherever we wanted. We visited Bako National Park through catching the public bus, stationed only a few minutes away from the hotel. The room itself, clean and spacious room with large and comfortable bed. Plenty of desk space to work, and lay out luggage. Lots of powerpoints next to the bed. Closet room was abundant and the shower was spacious and showerhead powerful. Free wifi was fast. Breakfast was good. If you are looking for a negative, I'm sure you will be able to find it if you look hard enough but honestly when you are visiting Kuching.. are you really looking for somewhere to spend all your time in the room? Reasonably priced with staff that make you feel as if you have been friends for years why not try it. Also between their staff there is at least 6-7 languages if not more they can speak.. so someone will figure out what you want!
We absolutely loved our stay at Batek hotel! All the staff were so friendly and helpful and especially Jolene who had gone out of her way to make sure everything was perfect for us! She helped with everything from our outing to the bako park and to see the oran utan and even dinner reservations. Loved the big bed and fabulous hot shower. Nothing to complain about.
We absolutely loved this hotel. Jo-Lynn is a fantastic host, she gave us great tips on what to do and where to go. Saved us so much money on tours and we got to see everything and more, at a fraction of the cost. Jacquie, the owner also gave up hours of her time to make our holiday perfect. They both went that extra mile for us, with a lovely dinner experience and a trip to the Hot Springs. The rest of the staff catered to our every need, Hot Chocolate in the middle of the night after a long day out hiking. The rooms were extremely clean. Great location and a lovely feel to this little Boutique Hotel. Our stay was made perfect by the personal touch given by all. We only returned from Malaysia Yesterday and I have recommended Batik 4 times already. I am hoping to return in September and will definitely stay here. We arrived as guests and left with a new family. Best Boutique Hotel experience I've had. Actually best holiday experience I have had anywhere. Thanks you and keep up the good work.
