Sukau Evergreen Lodge
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed at a guesthouse just down the road and it was awful so we switched to Sukau Evergreen and we were soooooo happy we changed guesthouses. The rooms are super clean, newly painted, with A/C. The family that runs the guesthouse are so friendly and they made us a delicious dinner.
They don't do river tours but there are tour guides in town and they can help arrange a tour for you.
I recommend staying here (very peaceful and quiet) and doing a river tour; it's cheaper than booking an all inclusive tour.

nice lodge and rooms are spacies and kept very clean by the owner. very good food, could be maybe a little bit cheaper, but ........... the matraces are the only problem, because they are really bad.
we stayed there twice within a period of 14 days. first just two nights and than we came back for another week. we didn't go there on a package. go there weekdays, because weekends there are more guests and it gets noisy. traveled sabah with a rented car a had perfect moments in the area around sukau. the river cruises are o.k. but one or two are enough. the offered jungle treck you can do by your own, just pass through the last resort ( B&B ) and after the resort on the right side there is a possibility to open the fence. there is not a lot to see, but we met some angry monkeys and have seen some birds there ( whole track take you maybe one hour return ).
we have even seen orang utan in sukau !!! one guy and one mother with baby. we made great pictures, but we have seen them five kilometer away from the lodge up the river ( where the car ferry stops - on the same side of the river where the lodge is situated - there is also a ferry stop on the other side of the river ). i don't know if the live there all the time or we have been just lucky.
another good spot for getting close to monkeys is the road to the gomantong caves. from the main road to the caves there are around 4 to 5 kilometer jungle. we drove the road up and down maybe five times during the time we stayed in sukau ( even we didn' t visit the cave ) and every time we met monkeys, even mothers with babys and two orang utan in the trees ( buy bananas on the way there - it really helps to get them out of the jungle !! )
evergreen lodge is a good, clean and cheap place to stay in sukau ( 70 RM room, you can ask for a discount ). i wouldn't go there on a package, but with a rented car and explore the area by yourself. in sukau there are no restaurants except expensive one at the resorts, but just a few kilometers outside of sukau you will find restaurants where you can get meals from 5 RM and up.

We stayed here for 2 nights in Jan 2014.
The rooms were very clean (the place only opened in 2012 so is reletavly new) and also spacious (one double and one single bed)

The rates include breakfast - eggs with unlimited toast/ jam

We did a river tour through them, we saw Probiscous monkeys, macaques monkeys, rhino hornbills and also eagles. The boat driver was a very good guide and had perfect English.

We ate lunch and dinner (15rm) at the lodge - all meals were delicious! A good choice of meat, and different veg dishes, and also lots of fruit! Free tea and coffee was on offer all day and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Highly recommend Evergreen Lodge!
