Review: Holiday Family Staycation at Union YES Retreat & Training Centre @ Siar

On 18th October 2021, we decided to have a family vacation but not too because of the pandemic. As 19th October 2021 was a holiday for Awal Muharram, it turned out many of the vacation properties are fully booked. After discussion with family members, we decided to stay at Union YES Retreat & Training Centre @ Siar.

Union YES Retreat & Training Centre @ Siar is located in Lundu, which around 2 hours driving from Kuching City. From Lundu Town itself, it is around 15 minutes driving. This property is owned by Sarawak Bank Employee's Union.


As many vacation properties fully booked during the holiday but not here because this properties are not listed in any online booking platform. So people might get miss about this property. To book this resort, you need to book through their website itself at here.

We booked for 4 chalet rooms which cost RM290 per room. There are 1 double bed and 1 single bed in Chalet room, plus you will get free breakfast and dinner for 2 person. All included. Actually we want to booked the beach house, unfortunately the beach house was fully booked.


We arrived at Union YES Retreat & Training Centre @ Siar around 2pm after we had our lunch at Pusat Penjaja Gading Lundu. When you arrived, your car will stopped by the security guard at the entrance as he will cheked your name, temperature and you need to scan your Mysejahtera. So, if you not the guest, you will not be able enter the resort. So, it is a good security measure.


After I parked my car, I alone collected all the identification card from my family members for the check-in procedures. All the guest need to show their identification card here including the children. The deposit is RM200 per soon, so my deposit is RM800 for 4 rooms using the credit card. The vouchers for breakfast and dinners also given during check-in.

After got my keys, a little bit disappointed as our room are located at the back. Many of others chalet but we end up here, but its a bit near to our carpark. 3 chalets room are next to each other, but only my unit are separate with the others.



First impression this resort is really clean, plus surrounding escaped is beautiful and very green. We immediately secured our bag in the room. One of the room, the air-conditioning is not function properly. Inside the room, there is no telephone for you to call the receptionist. So, we just let the room cool a little bit as we know, that day is full house and there is no room available if we want to change.

After one hour, the whole resort got the electrical BLACK OUT. It happened for 3 hours and they told us that the problem was the Sarawak Energy doing the maintenance, and not their fault. Without an electric, all the water also not available as they are using the electrical pump for the water distribution system.

So, we decided to have fun at swimming pool instead. Their pools is excellent. Have the children pool with slide, the 1.5m pool and the other children pool again in front of the Spa House. As today is full house, pool a little bit cramped and nobody checks for the Covid19 SOP. They limit 15 pax per time for swimming pool. Of course I brought my giant floats. You can rent the floats from @kchfloat , the rental fee as low as Rm15 for 3days rental.

Then, we continue to have fun at Siar beach. The beach is clean and peaceful. It is good to look at the children to have fun at the beach. It is their first time playing with the beach during this pandemic as they not allowed to go out before.


Luckily, after we finished our time at the beach, the electric was back to normal. We cleaned ourself and ready for the dinner. As I mentioned before, the dinner is also provided. You have a choice to take away or having it in the restaurant. Many guest also take away the dinner food as they are having a barbeque. You can rent a barbeque space here around RM100 for the beach barbeque area and RM150 at the swimming pool. I suggest, choose at the beach. Impressed with the foods, variety of foods being served actually. 

Breakfast - Nasi Lemak

Dinner for 5 pax per table

Next time, if you planning to stay here, bring your own football's ball and volleyball's ball. At here, there are big volleyball area and football area for you to play with friends/family. There is a flying fox area, but during our time here, it is not available.

That night, there is fireworks being played by the guest who have the barbeque at the beach area. It is really impressive fireworkd they played until a few cars alarm triggered too. So you can imagine how strong the fireworks. So the fireworks completed our family vacation that night as we are hang out at our chalet lobby. Owh, a night, just watch out for the sandflies. Do not forget your insect repellent. I end up bitten by many sandflies and it still itch until today (2weeks past now).

Overall, Union YES Retreat & Training Centre @ Siar is excellent for the short family vacation and those who are looking for the family time and peaceful environment. We will definitely be back.

 Special notes: For those with a wheelchair:


           👋Every place in this resort is using stairs. Even the chalet/beach house which is located on the ground, it still having stairs. So I can say this resort is not really suitable for the wheelchair person.

          👋 I am not sure the facility on the high building attached with the elevator or not such as deluxe room and penthouse. As last time, I was stayed on the chalet house. But as my observation, at the swimming next to the lobby and cafe, it still having a short stairs.
