We had to go to the SDK airport for our lost luggage and we ask about transfer. The staff at reception offered us a drive to the airport for around 44 RM with waiting until we collect our luggage. When we returned to the resort they charged us 88 RM. They justified it with long time. We collected our luggage... More

What a fantastic resort. It may not be five star but the rooms are good the food at the restaurant is great and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Take your time to wonder around the gardens to see some of the native wildlife .

My husband and I stayed at the Sepilok Jungle Resort for 3 nights. We had a balcony with a view of some trees in the back. Some balconies overlooked a building but we got lucky, I think. The resort has a really nice pool with chairs in both the sun and shade! Our room included breakfast, but it was nothing... More

Sepilok has so much to offer. The orang utan rehab centre is so well run it is an example for many other countries (but make sure you get there either at 9.30 or 1.30 to get in). Same for the Borneo sun bear rehab centre. Both are really interesting and worth a few hours although entrance fees are not cheap.... More

This was a fantastic hotel/resort. The photos do not do it justice! We stayed for one night. Our room was modern ( not like the photos) clean and tidy. The resort itself is amazing. A fantastic pool and the restaurant was really good too. Authentic food for really good prices. You are really staying in the jungle too! Well worth... More

I stayed in a dorm for 3 nights. Dorm was basic but perfectly adequate for backpackers. Fan in room and shared bathroom outside (some dorms have ensuit). Food is difficult to get anywhere other than resort but food is good here. Access to the pool is an absolute winner - wonderful to cool off from the humidity. The resort itself... More

The only bad thing I have to say about the place is how spread out the property is. From the check in to my room seemed like a very long walk late on a very dark night. But during the day it was a beautiful walk across bridges and ponds through the Sabah Jungle. Room was ok with a nice... More

Lovely setting, the bridge walkways are really nice. The pool is nice, although the water isn't that clear, but it is surrounded by tropical trees. Food is OK, four four quid a meal you can always go to the nature resort accross the road which is amazing). The room however (standard double with fan) was dirty, the bed itself was... More

Sepilok is the best area to stay when in Sandakan as every attraction is near to you, especially Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center and Sun bear conservatory (also Rainforest Discovery centre). You will find many hotel options in Sepilok region with name mentioning Sepilok. Out of 3 Sepilok hotels, we stayed at Sepilok Jungle Resort. Our tour operator, Downbelow, had... More
