Spent 2 nights at Myne resort last month with our 2 children. The location right on the river, in Bilit, is great, and worth the slightly uncomfortable trip down a gravel road. The staff were friendly and helpful, food was nice and rooms were comfortable. However, the highlight was the river cruising looking for wildlife. On our first cruise, we saw orangutans, proboscis and other monkeys, hornbills, and about 30 elephants. We found the elephants bathing in the river towards the end of our cruise, and although we were due back at 6 pm, our guide let us stay an extra half hour just to watch them.
Next morning, we had our second cruise and came across another herd of elephants, including a mother and baby, very cute.
That night, our last cruise and we were fortunnate to see a family of proboscis monkeys crossing a high rope across the river.
Our guide was very knowledgable and observant, he managed to spot crocodiles, a snake, monitor lizards and lots more. I would highly recommend a stay at Myne, ideally 3 nights. Take a book though as there is not much else to do and although we did a couple of cforest walks, it was stifling, and we did not see much on either walk.
No noise from renovations as others have mentioned, we did not notice them.
