This place was super. We stayed in the rainy season - so it was only us there. The pool side was great. The rooms were really clean. The place has a wonderful tropical and lush feel to it. I highly recommend staying in this accommodation.

I stayed at planet Borneo lodge for a week in March 2014. From the moment Aaron came out of the front door to greet us all (by first name) with a handshake, I knew that we had made a good decision! A beautiful house that is kept very clean and the staff who work there are fantastic- we couldn't have... More

Great place- location was good (10min walk to waterfront) and there is a tour operator office within the lodge which is great for advice/info. Aaron was a great host & made us feel very much at home. Although we were the only guests at the time, I can only imagine the more people hear about this place, the more popularity... More

Stayed at the lodge as part of a medical elective. Was only 10 minutes walk from the centre, very clean room and Aaron was very helpful and friendly with us! Would stay again and recommend it. Was quiet with no other guests, but did not take away from the experience. Tom

We stayed at Planet Borneo for a week in March 2014, in Bario which is the family room with shared bathroom. Turned out we were the only ones staying there so it was like having our own villa! The dip pool was perfect for my 2 and 6 year old kids, and us, who enjoyed plunging into it after a... More

Friendly home from home. A spacious guest house, we had a large room, big enough for all 5 of us, plus bags. Shared bathroom wasn't an issue as we were the only people staying. We had the run of the very large and well equipped kitchen and it made an ideal base for us to explore Kuching. The dip pool... More

Stayed there from 12 - 16 December 2013, around 25 of us. Aaron and the team was very helpful. Just a few things that need to be done is mirrors in all the rooms, cloth hook, hose in the washrooms other then that everything was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay there and i believe we are the noisiest group... More

We (4 girls) stayed at the Planet Borneo Lodge for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay! The staff (especially Bryan) was very helpful and friendly.
