The last frontier resort is quite special, situated up high (600 steps) Gert picked us up from sepilok and drove us to his place, along the way we spoke about all sorts from deforestation to how long he's been running the place! The rooms are clean and lovely but the food is even better. Absolutely delicious. Jason was always around... More

We stayed here for 3 days and were astounded at the location and passion for life that Gert and Jason showed. This really IS the last frontier and is a display of two guys vision to share this magnificent part of the world with travellers. Leave your internet, modern technolgy and luggage(!) behind and ascend the 600 steps to this... More

Top location, we will never forget going up the 600 stairs! You will experience the real rainforest and if you are lucky an orangutang will be having lunch in a tree a couple of meters from you. Gert provided the best service, picking us up at Sepilok and keeping us entertained with beers and wine and a lot of the... More

What a great weekend we spent here. It really is 'the last frontier'. During our stay we managed to spot orang-utans, proboscis monkeys and a red leaf monkey and we even spotted a crocodile on one of our river cruises. The food is great and the open air restaurant is real experience. Jason and Gert were great hosts and really... More

Everything was as we expected it to be, except the food. but more on that later. The stairs were fine, there was a river cruise each night, and a nature walk from the steps of our room. And the rest of the time we spent relaxing and napping. which was exactly what we went there for. but the food!! wow,... More

This little lodge on a hill top in the middle of the forest - we even saw orang utan on the stairs - you get to enjoy the jungle. Nice western Asian fusion food, nice river cruises for wild life spotting, Jason or Gett will arrange everything for you, so all you have to do is enjoy and lay back.... More

GOOD: My husband and I had a fantastic 4D3N at LFBR. This is one of the reasons we were so interested in coming to Borneo and the lodge didn't disappoint.

So I fell ill just before going out to stay with them with my girlfriend and could no longer go out. There was no way of letting them know until they had driven 2 hours to collect us. I was bed ridden and my girlfriend was freaking out because I was so ill. Luckily they came to the hotel and... More
