It was a challenge to reach Jason by mail, but we never gave up and it was really worth it. We booked the 3 days / 2 nights trip. We loved the boardwalk up to the lodge through beautiful rainforest. The resort is situated 90 meters of altitude above Kinabatangan river, the view is magnificent! The rooms are very clean,... More

Recently visited and after also couldn't help thinking I wished I stayed longer! I'm sure I will go back. Very comfortable accommodation in a suprisingly easy to access fantastic rainforest. I never thought I would be staying less than 60 meters that a wild orangutan nested in a tree for the night! Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts... More

We stayed here last week and have not stopped talking about it. There are not enough superlatives to describe this place and although I am reluctant to tell others about it because I do not want it to get spoilt, I feel I owe it to Jason our wonderful host to spread the word !! Jason our host, collected us... More

During our stay on Borneo we took the 3 days / 2 nights package with two boat trips at dusk over the Kinabatangan River and a morning trek along the ridge of the hill on which The Last Frontier is located. The famous 600 steps are no problem at all, unless you want to bring huge suitcases to the top... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed in this boutique resort for the 3d2n package. We highly recommend this stay because of the long drive from Sandakan. 2d1n is probably too short to see everything. Back to the resort ... Gert and Jason (and the other staff!) are great. They really do everything for you to make it an unforgettable experience! Jason... More

This resort is different (in the positive sense) from most of the other resorts we have seen. First of all, there is the location: On top of a hill, middle in the jungle with a nice view on the surroundings. To get there, you need to go about 500-600 stairs and if you follow the program, you have to do... More

One of the most unique settings we've ever stayed in. Yes there are a fair few steps to get up, however take them at your own pace and they really aren't a problem. Besides we would have walked up a thousand steps for the views - when you compare the location to the resorts actually by the river it was... More

What a wonderful experience we had at The Last Frontier Resort! Jason was the perfect host! From the moment he picked us up in Sandakan, till he dropped us off a couple of days later, Jason looked after us with exceptional attention to detail. The Last Frontier Resort is in a beautiful setting. We were a little apprehensive about the... More

Nothing was too much trouble for Gert and Jason. They picked us up from our hotel in Sandakan (I was travelling with my husband and 3 children) helped sort our luggage to leave at the bottom of the steps, and gave us plenty of info about the area. Gert is a mine of info and Jason is a fantastic cook... More
