I'm not sure what I expected but it was a truly beautiful lodge. There is one thing I will point out it is an eco lodge so there is no air conditioning. We had a deluxe room which included a roman bath on the deck. Worth paying extra for as well as the amazing view from the deck overlooking the river & the forest. The activities offered were good climbed to the view point, at one stage I wasn't sure if I was on a holiday or boot camp but push yourself its worth it. The Jacuzzi pool was my favourite with the little fish nibbling the dead skin off your feet also after the trek up the mountain it is nice to cool down and put your feet in the lovely clear fresh water.
The food at the lodge was good get the chef to make up a fresh stir fry. Sitting on the lodge deck looking out to the rainforest again is beautiful. The call of the Gibbons in the morning & the many bird calls makes it a unique experience. We saw plenty of Orangutans, Red Leaf monkeys,
Long tail macaques. A glimpse of a mousedeer. Hornbills, perhaps I thought we would see more birds but enjoyed everything I did see. The frog pond at night was good (frogs & snakes). Other than that nothing just a few creepy crawlies. Our guide was a lovely young man who was aware of our abilities or lack off and his knowledge of the area was excellent. The sky walkway through the canopy of the rainforest was fabulous. You'll enjoy this lodge. Tip - take insect repellent with Deet in it.
