We stayed for two nights during Nov 2012, the staff were very attentive and friendly. They greeted all guests every time they see them, played games together with the guests during free time, we felt nothing but like own home.
The chalets are basic wooden chalet with basic amenities, to support the eco-friendly concept, they have a list of hours where you are advised not to use the air-conditioning, or water heater, etc... There is no TV in the room, if you need to watch any movies or news, there is one at the lobby.
Their meals were perfect, not much choices during the dinners but it's like home cook. You are having the pure Borneo food at this place. We miss the fried banana 'pisang goreng' a lot, one of the best we ever ate!
As you need to book tour and lodge as a package, I shall just leave my review on the tour and guide here too. Our guide was very good and experience, during our cruise tour, he brought a professional binocular, together with a book of world birds spices along and explained every bird we found during the tour. We enjoy our evening boat trip in the rain too!
