I really liked to stay at Poni Homestay. The staff are very friendly and helpful so if you have any questions you can ask the staff and they will help you. You can also book any trips at the homestay. The rooms are very clean. Beds are also good.
Poni Homestay helped to make my time in Brunei most memorable. From the airport shuttle and the warm welcome at the house to the complimentary breakfast at a nearby restaurant and the sage assistance with helping to book a tour of the water village (Kampong Ayer) and journey upriver into the mangrove forest to meet a troop of proboscis monkeys. Even during a rainy afternoon, the lounge proved the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea and a good read.
Complimentary pick-up from the ferry terminal and also drop-off at the local bus terminal! Super clean, neat and spacious house. Free rental of bicycle here so make sure to explore the nearby beaches just a few km away! This suburb area is a great place to chill-out. Lovely breakfast provided at the local coffeeshop too. Thanks to the friendly staff Mus who made us feel so welcome :)
I stayed at Poni Homestay for a month for work near by. Staying at Poni homestay was really awesome. They have bali indonesia vibe with pool table and bicycles provided for entertainment. With Mus and joko around the house, i can always ask for something i need. After work (5pm) sometimes i went cycling to Tanjung Batu beach to relax and enjoy sunset. I can always find good food near by homestay. I realise travelers come checking in from time to time for few days. I'm gonna be checking out tomorrow and will defenitely stay at Poni Homestay again for month(s).
We stayed in Poni for 3 nights during our stay in Brunei. They offered airport pickup, and a lot of information to make our stay easier while we were there. The place without car is a bit far from the capital or the airport, but they can arrange transport too. There are good restaurants nearby, room is air conditioned, but bed is a bit old, so not too confy. Only 4 stars for the distance and the bed. 5* for the staff and the place itself.
