The accommodation is wonderful. Clean cool bedroom with crisp linen sheets and a light duvet. Shower which is outdoors and overlooking jungle canopy. Lovely hammocks to swing in the shade. The eating area is communal and great to chat to other travellers. The food choices are limited but as long as you are adventurous the options each day are tasty... More

Very nice place located in the middle of a lush forest with beautiful and cheap living conditions. All the all buildings and furniture are made of recycling wood, which adds to the jungle feel. If privacy isn't a big deal to you, I would recommend the bunk beds in the dorm located in a big stilt house. People are very... More

Beautiful spot, very friendly & helpful staff, especially Ewan. Helped us a lot to sort out Kinabatangan trip. Also free shuttle to Orangutan sanctuary that is a bit further. Portions could be bigger however that is just my point of view.

Very nice place with awesome and cheap living conditions. All the buildings and stilthouses are made of wood, which adds to the jungle feel. We stayed in the dorm, which are located in giant stilthouses with nice working fans. If privacy isn't a big deal to you, I would recommend the bunk beds there. Only gripe was that there were...

This is a little piece of heaven! It's a very remote location and you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle! Cabins are clean, big and have an outside bathroom! Staff is very friendly and they provide free shuttle service to the Orang Utan rehabilitation centre

Booked for 3 nights, in a double ridge view chalet. The location is great, you really do feels as though you are in the jungle. We had booked because of the reviews on lonely planet, but I think that the place has changed since the reviews were written. The place felt a little tired. There was a decking area with... More

My wife and i stayed here for 2 nights in one of the cabins. The place seems a bit run down but for where it is located it had all we needed. The rooms were rustic but clean with a/c and fly net. The bathroom had an outdoor feel as the shower was open with views of the forest. The... More

I enjoyed my stay here. It is basic but you are in the jungle so expectations were not high. Friendly staff who were helpful with anything including booking trips, taxis or anything else. We stayed 5 nights which may have been a little long as there is not that much to do once you have been to the orangutans, the... More

A fantastic start to a 10 day stay in this amazing country. Via email we re-arranged a taxi pick-up from Sandakan airport – well worth doing as we then had no hassle with competing taxis and were taken directly to Paganakan Dii. The accommodation is almost exactly as you’d expect from the many photos on their web site and on... More
