If you’re looking for a home away from home, look no further! Stay in Brunei as the locals do, and discover your own hidden gems with the help of our homestays. This is your chance to participate in a cultural dance, passed down through the generations, sit down to have a homemade dinner with a host family, learn some local phrases and form lasting friendships.
Kunyit 7 Lodge
There’s no better way to experience the local ways than actually living with a local, and Kunyit 7 Lodge in Kampong Ayer has welcomed visitors from over 40 countries since it was first opened in 2015. The homestay is registered with Airbnb, and the host, Kem, has converted it into a charmingly cosy home, offering Bruneian hospitality at its finest.
More information on the homestay can be found here.
At the edge of Brunei is a quiet settlement that speaks of a land time seemed to have forgotten. The Mendaram Longhouse is one of a few longhouses located in Labi, about 40km south of the coastal highway. It comprises a small Iban community whose ways and traditions are still preserved to this day. Visitors have the opportunity to participate in cultural dances and music, and partake in the delicacies here too!
