We stayed here for two nights while travelling around Malaysian Borneo. The hotel is next door to the Orang-Utan and Sun Bear sanctuaries (a five minute walk). It is also just a half hour walk (or ten minute taxi) to the amazing Rainforest Discovery Centre...More
A lovely lakeside setting with rustic lodges in close proximity to the Orangutan rehabilitation centre and an ideal base for both the Orangutans and sun bears. Food was adequate rather than an event (applies to both breakfast and evening meal)
This was a great location. Walk to Sun bears and Orangutans. 30 mins into Sandakan or Lapuk Bay for the monkeys. Lodges are very comfortable, staff super helpful and friendly. Food was varied and delicious. Nothing to fault here.
We stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. The rooms are huge and the gardens are beautiful. Each room has its own private balcony and hammock and it’s really quiet.
It’s walking distance to the Orangutans and Sun Bears and 1.5 k to...More
My wife & I stayed here for 1 night before heading to the Kinabatangan River. The resort is tucked away off of a main road so you feel like you are staying at a jungle lodge, and the grounds were nice to walk around in...More

We went in April/May but as has been suggested just search for the rainy season - remember it is a rainforest and just because you are out of the rainy season doesn't preclude really heravy thunderstorms and rain (I mean REALLY heavy!).
Within Sepilok you will see the orangutans through glass at the outdoor nursery and then there's the feeding platform where you can't necessarily guarantee sightings as this is for the more independent orangutans.
We were lucky enough to see a wild alpha male close up in Sepilok as they will sometimes come into the centre.
Nothing beats seeing orangutans in the wild (Kinerbatangan River at the Bilit Rainforest Lodge) but with nature it's just a matter of waiting, keeping your eyes open and a bit of luck - which we had aplenty with sightings of 8 orangutans in the wild.

I'd recommend staying longer in Langkawi (it's beautiful) than staying for 4 nights in Sepilok - there's not much to do in Sepilok so you do it in a day/maximum 2. Or we went to Perhentian Islands too if you can get over... More
