Tabin is awesome. This was our first experience in Borneos rainforest and it was fabulous. For the cost per person (kids are free) it was reakky quite a bargain as the service was so personal. Another review mentioned the guide Mandin, who we also had the pleasure of being our guide. he was wonderful and patient and extremely knowledgeable.
the lodge itself is set in a small valley in the forest and it is quite lovely. Food good, service ok (a biy amateurish, but this was sort of appropriate). our only gripe would be time keeping.
we would highly recommend it.
