We stayed at Planet Borneo for 4 nights from 2nd August. The lodge is like being at home, kitchen, living area and the bedrooms were clean and had everything we needed. Pool area was lovely and great for sitting out at night watching the passing storms. We really enjoyed our stay made all the better by the lovely Aaron who... More

We stayed at Planet Borneo Lodge for four weeks in May 2014 and had a brilliant stay. Aaron was lovely and very helpful, especially with helping us to arrange trips and book taxis. It is clean and well kept, with a simple breakfast of bread or toast with jam or peanut butter included. There is also a fridge which guests... More

Had quite a pleasant stay there. And they did a good job in arranging the ticketing and transfer for my visit to the Rainforest World Music Festival at Satunbong. Will highly recommend it to those on tight budget and love a care free stay

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.

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!
