This hotel is an excellent base for river cruises where you can see several interesting animals from birds to orang-utans and crocodiles. Our chalet was clean and nicely decorated, but the only thing that I missed there was a mosquito net. This net is mainly for convenience as we did not have any mosquitos or other bugs in the bed, but still as you are in a jungle it would be nice to have some just-in-case protection.
Staff at the hotel were friendly and the main "building" was cosy and nice to hang around. There is not really that much to do except the cruises and jungle walks, but meanwhile its just great to have a rest in a hammock with the jungle sounds around you. I would recommend the place!
