This place was delightful. We were en route to see orangutans up river and this was a 'convenient' starting point - however it has become a highlight of my trip. The staff - friendly and sweet. The setting - very pretty with lovely tropical gardens. The food was surprisingly delicious, and the outdoor dining room - a picture, (take citronella for Mosquitos). The cabins were very comfortable. We stayed on two occasions and on both visits I had the best sleeps! Waking to the sounds of the rainforest birds and the chatter of squirrels = magic.
Just remember - you are in the tropics eg. prepare for mosquitos.
Also remember, conveniences we take for granted in the west are often considered luxuries in Borneo - like (very) hot showers. If you want to have a good time - be flexible and enjoy the adventure.
