We stayed at Sepilok Jungle Resort for two nights while we visited the Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre and the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilition Centre. We booked a double room with AC and private bathroom for 105RM (£21) a night. We did enjoy our stay and would stay here again, it's a great location for seeing the animals and it's relatively...

This place is a great location for the orangutan rehabilitation centre and sun bear conservation centre. The rooms are average. The bathroom quite poor, no water pressure. There is a well maintained pool, which is a plus. The banana cafe (where meals are served) is average. As this was my second day in Malaysia I was keen for some local... More

For the Orangutans and the Sun Bears it could not be better; such a pity it is run down and needing a good overhaul (why the charge & limited availability of the excellent pool?) with basic Chinese style food - stir fry on offer with no love in the cooking (sadly typical of our eating experiences throughout Sabah (KK/ Sandakan/...

Nice clean rooms, lovely pool, good reception staff, food just edible, eveything a bit run down - not that much to do around sepilok, the sanctuary is barely worth visiting other than to support the cause, and sandakan town needs a jolly good scrub - give the place a miss other than the sun bear conservation centre and head straight...

The location of this resort is just a few minutes walk away from the Orang-utan centre. The resort itself is in desperate need of some good maintenance and general upkeep as it all looks very tired and in disrepair. The food was pretty standard and nothing special, just quick, cheap meals. You're not going to get any real nutritional value... More

The location of this 'resort' in relation to the orang utan and sun bear sanctuary is excellent. If all you are using this room for is a base then it's good value for money. There are a couple of nicer, and much more expensive hotels around but we just went over for happy hour and just used our room as... More

This is a value for money quality resort in Sepilok. Good spacious rooms, excellent wifi, air conditioning and hot water there on demand, good kitchen and the cream on the cake - a pool for those hot humid nights. Staff were excellent and the hallways to the room filled with informative photo posters that added value to the stay It's... More

Although this resort is rated 2 Star it has facilities that belie the rating. We found the resort exceptional for a 2 star resort. The accommodation was clean with all the facilities of the city located in the jungle of Borneo. We had airconditioning, an overhead fan, clean sheets & towels and a comfortable bed. The food was exceptional in... More

If this is your first time in a jungle resort then it takes a little while to get used to. Although not far from the main Sandakan - KK road, this place is absolutely in the jungle. The lodges and facilities are linked by walkway that take you through the trees on over gardens and pools of water. This means... More

Dear spencerneal1, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. The comments on the mosquitoes are spot on. Although all our rooms are netted, there will be mosquitoes around the area so having insect repellant would be a good idea. We are happy that you have overall enjoyed your stay with us. The lodge at the Kinabatangan River is called... More

We stayed one night and we would potentially recommend this place. The room was well furnished with nets in windows, the garden was well mantained and beautiful, the price was really nice and breakfast just great. On the other hand the staff seemed to be confused or disorganised. Answering about room number to the same person within five minutes in... More
