I stayed here with my partner late 2008 in one of the tree houses (can't comment on the cabins/other accommodation - sorry!) This place won't be for everyone, particularly not those looking for luxurious pampering.. but if you like something different... read on.
The tree houses were awesome, super cool air conditioning, set into the rainforest canopy - a great size with a beautiful balcony over looking the ocean. There are two beaches close by, a refreshing 'jungle pool' (cool fresh water from the rainforest). There are lovely walks through the rainforest and the Sarawak Cultural village is walking distance - we also saw little monkeys which hung around the vines near the reception. You can organise all your 'day trips' to pick you up from here - including Bako national park, and orangutangs... It was low season when we were there and the food at the restaurant was average.. however, there are two other resorts just around the corner that you can easily walk to for some variety.
If you want somthing a bit different, and are looking for some seclusion - you will love this place!
