The health & safety of our guests & staff is our utmost priority.  It has always been a major consideration, but since the outbreak of Covid-19, it has never been more important.

The Bikalan welcomes fully vaccinated guests who abide by our SOP's.  All staff are fully vaccinated & take care to provide a clean & safe environment.

The Bikalan benefits from an open air design which allows for excellent airflow throughout.  And with Mt Serembu to the front & Sarawak Kanan river at the rear, we always have a pleasant & cooling breeze.

We also maintain a very high standard of cleanliness in the kitchen.  This lead to The Bikalan receiving a GRADE A rating for cleanliness & food safety from Bau Council.

The same applies to our bathrooms.  We keep them extremely clean & Bau Council rated us 5 STARS for the facility.

In August 2021 The Bikalan was crowned CHAMPIONS at the prestigious Cheif Ministers Environmental Awards in the Food & Eateries category.  We are immensely proud of this & it reflects our respect for the environment we operate in & our constant efforts in recycling & use of local produce/materials.
