Spent 2 nights here as part of the S.I. Tour of the Kinabatangan River. The tour company itself was amazing - our guide Hiro was very informative (they all were) and we saw tons of wildlife - the highlight being a herd of 30 elephants on the river bank - the closest being 2 metros from the boat!
The lodge itself is perfectly integrated into the surroundings and although the rooms are basic, they are very clean with no insects (maybe due to the creepy spray sound I heard every 45 seconds...) but regardless, it was the experience of a lifetime. The food was delicious and there were all kinds of books to read about the area in the library. I also suggest you go to the caves nearby (covered in bat poo, scorpions, cockroaches and poisonous millipedes but absolutely amazing none the less (especially when the death-defying swift nest robbers are taking the nests to sell to the chinese for soup)!
