Really lovely place in the middle of green .. to wake up to birds chirping in the jungle right outside the room is just perfect! Staff was very helpful - got picked up at the crossroad where the bus dropped me off. Daily drop off and pick up to Orangutan-Centre and other stops. Dorm was huge with about 20 beds... More

The route up to Paganakan through an odd, run down park was not terribly auspicious, but from the moment we slid back the wall of the room to reveal the balcony overlooking beautiful green jungle, we were hooked! The open air bathroom was fully functional and really rather fab, a rotation of evening meals are ordered in advance and are... More

We were picked up from the Orangutan Centre on the free shuttle for one night stay at the resort. Check in was simple. The room was basic , but we loved it. Opening the door for a view over the jungle - amazing. We also loved the outdoor bathroom. Went for a walk down the hill - not sure if... More

It's a lovely place to stay, but you will run out of things to do very quickly, and with a 2 night stay you can see everything. We got a taxi from the airport for MR40, and arrived at 2pm. We had a ridge hut room overlooking the river, but apart from the pleasant sounds of a few birds and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a deluxe ridge top room. The room was basic as I imagined it would be. The view from my balcony over the jungle was superb. I had an Air conditioner which I used in the very hot evenings. Free transfer to the orangatan rescue centre and jungle centre was available a couple of times... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. They staff were all so lovely, greeted us when we arrived and informed us about the free shuttle bus to the orang-utans. The cabin we stayed in was great. Mosquito net, comfy clean bed, air con and fan. The outside bathroom was nice. Food was okay. Free breakfast includes: toast, egg and chicken sausage.... More

The views here are amazing and the setup is nice. Although the main communal area where you eat is dark and dismal you would think your in a garden hut. The food I edible but not the best cooking. Reminded me of a home made macdonalds. The staff are quite moody and not very friendly. I would suggest staying here... More

We stayed in the dorm rooms as no chalets were available when we booked, There are 2 dorms and the staff kept us (family of 4) alone in the dorm for 3 of the 4 nights. The dorms are beautiful with crisp linen and comfy beds. The kids loved looking around the Deer Park and the crocodiles. Shuttles to the... More

The beds are clean, unless a critter visits and leaves a present. The food is average but decent. The best part of this lodging is the free shuttle to and from the orangutan center. They take you down at 0900 and pick you up for free at 1600. The main lodge, where you get food facilitates trading stories and information.... More
