During our trip to Miri last month, we manage to stay in this cozy nice place called Coco House. Surprisingly enough, this little hotel/guest house is very famous among divers in Miri. Located just next to St. Joseph school, you will never miss this place. Even the parents knows where it is.
“Okay, guys. I got out entries and media passes ready for the whole 2 days event. Starting from the briefing day and the actual festival day. Any idea how are we going there and where do we stay?”. That was my first question upon receiving the news that we have successfully booked our place at the Miri Country Music Festival 2015 (MCMF15).
At first we decided to stay at the City Homestay & Apartment due to its short distance to the festival ground and a fairly cheap rate. However, Aliey got a better deal at Coco House. Residing at a city that emphasizes tourism, Coco House is trying to make our vacation ever more interesting and memorable. Their services not only includes accommodation, but also diving, a collaboration with their sister company, Coco Dives. They also offer activities like the river cruise, land tours also with their sister company, the Minda Travel.
There are a lot of room options to be choose from like:
- Family room
- Standard Double
- Standard Twin
- Dorm or bunker
Due to budget concern, we choose to stay in the bunker room and we’re loving it so much! The bunk beds are awesomely comfortable. For the amount of comfortableness and fun we had while staying here, it is really worth the RM20.00 per night we paid for the stay. Let’s see how the bunker room looks like:
The dorm/bunker room is on the third floor and there are only 2 rooms available for this type of accommodation. 1 for the boys and 1 for the girls. Each have the same setup. However, the dorm floor shares the same bathroom and common area. Well, the bathroom is not entirely sharing. Let me show you what I mean:
Other amenities offered by Coco House including:
- Free pc usage for in-house guests
- Free Wifi
- 24 hours reception
- Private parking
- Common living area
- Sunbath platform
- Dive shop
- Cafe and minimart
Lets take a look at the common living area shall we:
Not just that, when I mention about sunbath platforms are also provided here at Coco House, there are really sunbath platforms here. Please bear in mind, the sunbath platforms are not in the parking area, but on the rooftop. YES, ON THE ROOFTOP! How cool is that.
For those light travelers and backpackers and diving enthusiasts, I recommend this place very much when you’re visiting Miri, Sarawak.
