“Sukau Rainforest Lodge is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2006

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sukau Rainforest Lodge. Loved the eco-friendly concept and most incredible experience going to sleep surrounded by the sounds of the rainforest - even better to wake up to the sound of the wild gibbons! Enjoyed our morning walk around the hornbill boardwalk which circles around the hotel - wild elephants can sometimes be seen crossing its path but we were unlucky this time!
However, we were treated to the sight of two wild male orang-utans sighted down river and had the opportunity to get really close to them - incredible experience and one we will never forget!!

Do try this place, if you love wildlife you wont regret it.
