We loved the forest floor lodge. The room was beautifully decked out and very comfortable. The owners have clearly put a great deal of thought and style into the place. The lodge was a great place to hang out and is equipped with bikes, leech socks, guide books etc.
The best thing about the place are the guided walks and bike rides. Owner Roy is an entomologist of some note, and we were lucky enough to spend a morning being shown around the jungle by him. This was an incredible experience as he really brought it all to life. Mr Ting was also a terrific guide and we had a fantastic bike ride with him - he pointed out civets, sunbirds and all sorts. Really brilliant.
The only improvement would be the food. It was fine but none of the meals were ever very memorable. Also they could advertise their services better on their website - we didn't realise we could do an early morning gibbon trek through the lodge.
All in all though, it was a terrific experience. Thank you Roy and Mr Ting!
