Spent 2 nights here and loved it. Rooms are very rustic but perfect in the location - clean, well equipped with great views of the river. Only issue for some might be the room accessibility which is up a considerable amount of stairs. Staff were very friendly, service was good, bar well-stocked and food was fine. Some excellent boat trips... More

If you are looking to see some Wildlife in Borneo this is the place! Overall this was brilliant, so much better to come here than the touristy orang-utan parks. The wildlife around here is amazing. We saw Orang-utans in the wild!!! Elephants, lots of other monkeys, bird life and some gigantic crocodiles! There are so many different activities you can... More

As a Malaysian and Sabahan, if you are looking for wildlife and nature, Sandakan is the best place. Myne resort is the only luxury accommodation in Bilit. If you are honeymooner, this resort is definitely your choice, the food nice and staff are friendly! The chalet is very nice and clean along kinabatangan river. Understand that wildlife sighting is based... More

We were punctually picked up by our guide, Dunius, at our Sepilok resort and brought to Myne Resort. First of all I wish to spend some positive words about him: Dunius was very professional, knowledgeable and kind. During all the 3D2N stay (booked by email directly with the resort months before) he was always with us and gave us so... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with Exodus travel and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was decent and the G&Ts were great. The rooms are comfy with AC and hot showers. Highlight was the dartboard, lowlight - no darts! Definitely worth a visit and if you are lucky you might spot an elephant or Orangutan.

We were collected from Sandakan airport by our Myne Resort guide who took us to the Sepilok Orang Utan rehabilitation centre for the morning. This was great, but we would have liked to have been given more time there; it all felt a bit rushed! Then we had a 2 hour minibus ride to reach the resort. The bus was... More

This was by far the highlight of our time in Borneo because of all the wildlife we saw cruising the Kinabatangan River. The resort itself is pleasant with a beautiful view of the river. Our accommodations were nice. The service was good and our guide was very knowledgeable. We saw 2 elephants the first night... but our last afternoon not... More

I spent 2 nights on the Kinabatangan River at the Myne Resort. I was picked up, from the Four Points by Shearton, at 8.30 am by my guide, Patrick, from Myne Travel. On the way to Kinabatangan we visited the Sun Bear Sanctuary at Sepilok. After a 2 hour road trip arrived at the Myne resort at midday. I had... More

I wanted to go see the Proboscis monkeys on the Kitabatangan River -- but was unhappy with the tour packages my hostel offered. Luckily, I found the Myne resort booking office in Sandakan. The staff was very helpful. They scheduled the pickup of me and one other backpacker in front of the hostel, made a pit-stop at the caves (at... More

I stayed in the longhouse, the rooms are very basic and rustic - but you all have the needed comforts (air con, hot shower, clean, comfortable bed). The provided meals were heavy on vegetables which aren't my favorite, but the rest of it was very well prepared and tasty. All of the staff were great and friendly. Don't count on... More
