This is not a luxury hotel - but so what. The fact that this place exists, in the middle of the jungles of Borneo, where you can take a hot shower, find a flush toilet, and sleep in an air conditioned room is a miracle. Yes, the bathrooms are rustic, the rooms are not terribly clean, and the furnishings are worn but, after trekking and boating through the killer heat and humidity all day to see orangutans, this felt like paradise to come back to. Other tourists who were staying overnight on boats were completely envious of our ability to shower at the end of the day. And, boy, will you need a shower. The orangutans are amazing and worth every ounce of effort it took to get there. Our guides and boatmen were friendly and accommodating. The food is OK - not gourmet but, again, so what, it's a hot meal in the middle of the jungle.
