a very pleasant place to spend a few days in a complete relax. The resort is made by several chalet with an original and natural composition of elements. But it also has a dormitory with make this place a nice compromise and keeps it away from being a place just for couples of families. a very friendly and helpful staff,... More

We found SFER a great base to visit the Orangutang and Sun bear conservation centres on foot and for a pick up and drop off point for a Kinabatangan Homestay. The hotel itself was relaxed and in a beautiful setting with a good restaurant onsite. The chalet accommodation was well designed, allowing you to enjoy the forest setting in comfort... More

The longhouse (LBB) was nice- 4 to a room with own bathroom in each. Nice to have a pool to sit in and relax. Only let down was the restaurant. Last night I waited over an hour for pancakes and right now as I'm writing this review, I've waited 40 mins for a fruit salad and Spring rolls (after asking... More

Stayed here for a few nights whilst visiting Borneo and found the rooms to be excellent, very clean with the added bonus of a secluded outdoor shower. The restaurant / bar area was lovely with great views over the grounds. If you're thinking of going to see either the orangutans or the sun bears both sanctuaries are just a10 minute... More

Very nice hotel. Stayed in a chalet, very simple but perfectly acceptable being in the forest. It is a walking distance (10-15 min) from the Orangutan and Sun Bear Centers. I recommend to stay at least two nights as there is so much to do around. Other places in the area we saw from the bus looked more crowed and... More

Just to start off, we rarely write critical reviews and are not too fussy but we think it is worth highlighting our issues with the place. Pros: - Beautiful setting, we stayed in a double chalet which had balcony with a great view of the forest, but I think many of the other accommodation in Sepilok looked similar - Good... More

We stayed for one night in a chalet. This is one of the best value hotels I have ever stayed in during my years of travelling. Forest Edge has a quirky 'kitch' vibe about it, which is amazing considering the location! For example the chalets have outdoor showers as well as an indoor shower! The room decor was fantastic and... More

We spent one night at Uncle Tan's and one night here. It is walking distance of the Urangutans centre in Sepilok and quite frankly a gorgeous oasis at extremely good value. The food was top notch - I have never had better at a backpacker's place. A small pool to relax and chat to others around. I could have stayed... More

Not far from airport (taxis are cheap), great location for the rain forest. This hotel has rustic charm. Lovely grounds with a bit of a walk to your room. If you are disabled or elderly could be an issue. Room is rustic but lovely with a verandah overlooking bush where we saw deer. The staff are lovely! No wifi in... More
