This resort has a very good programme to experience the nature on the Kinabatangan river. We saw Orangutang and proboscis monkeys which was Awesome. But unfortunately the resort food is poor - extremely westernised. We had fried chips for breakfast yuk. There a cats in the resort which whine at your feet when you are eating.

I had no idea of what to expect. As it happened In thoroughly enjoyed myself. I opted for a bit of comfort in a decent enough though very basic cabin. This is the rain forest so do not expect city comforts. All the staff are friendly, helpful and will do all they can to see that you are happy and... More

We found this place to be a great, not too pricey place from which to explore the Kinabatangan River. The accommodation ranges from small, basic cabins (perfectly adequate) to more expensive 'villas'. It's built on the banks of the river, and provides decent food, helpful service, great guides, and a good program of activities including plenty of time on the... More

The lodge is situated directly on the river bank of the Kinabatangan river in Bilit and offers a great package during its stay. We opted for the 3 days and 2 nights option in a private chalet. The chalet is very clean, especially considering the location and efforts made to be environment-friendly, and has all of the western luxuries you... More

We enjoyed the same guide during the whole three days and he was good! We were lucky to see elephants and different types of... More

We have done a few jungle treks in other places and travelled around in Borneo a little bit, and for us this was a lot of money for very little. We paid 840 RM for the “2 day 1 night”- tour including the transport. We stayed in a dorm for four people with a shared bathroom. The dorms do not... More

Thank you for your fee back. I cant quite understand as you raised your concern of the mosquito then said there is not more than 1 in the room. And the fact that the place is very organised, clean, impressive, well kept etc... seems to bother you ;( I would like to clarify the tour schedule. The tour actually starts... More

We stayed here with a 3D/2N formula. Organization was perfect and our chalet (Agamid) was clean and comfortable. Staff was kind and our boatman/guide Aljun spoke a good English, so he could explain us everything about flora and fauna. He showed us many animals: monkeys (proboscis, two kinds of macaque and tarsier, the smallest of the world - this one... More
