A variety of styles of hotels/guesthouses are used in Malaysia. In many instances they might not be like what you are used to back home. In some areas we stay in simple local guesthouses in stunning locations - rooms are small and basic and there may only be shared toilet facilities and showers. Service and efficiency can also vary.

All payments except your deposit are refundable if your trip is more than 180 days away. If you do not meet any of these criteria, your booking is not eligible for a refund.
