I spent a lot of time researching the lodges and trips at Kinabatangan River. I read so many reviews of lodges that were basic and uncomfortable but were much cheaper than the Borneo Ecotours trip. However, following the recommendation of a friend, I opted for 3D2N trip booked through Borneo Ecotours at the Sukau Rainforest Lodge and i'm so glad I did.
The lodge was very comfortable, the rooms perfectly designed for the setting, the food was great and the service was excellent. Our tour guide, Jumandi, was excellent and really cared that we had a great time and saw as many animals as possible - orangutan, crocs, monkeys, birds and snakes.
I would highly recommend this trip and this lodge. It was well worth the extra money. Our time was well organised yet relaxing.
