We stayed in one of the lodges which are scattered around ponds and forest. While our room was modest, it was extremely comfortable (great AC too)and absolutely spotless. We overlooked the forest and had wonderful bird and wildlife sightings from our balcony. It was a bit of a walk (5 mins) to the restaurant area and was quite hilly so not for people with mobility needs. Once there, there was reasonable Wi-Fi and a lovely ambience. Menu was fairly limited but reasonable quality, and there was a decent choice of wine. A big positive about the place is the staff - really friendly and helpful. A big recommendation for this place.

Great location to visit orangutang sanctuary and Sun Bears (totally recommend both - amazing!). This is a quirky, atmospheric jungle stay….dip pool quite dirty, maintenance needs attention and walk ways a bit dodgy in the rain. Meals in the evening really good. Breakfast was awful. Staff lovely. Strange cash deposit requirement for room breakages!

Lodges were lovely and had everything needed (except wifi which is available in the restaurant). The plunge pool was nice in the heat. It's a short walk to the orangutan and sun bear sanctuaries. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed for 2 nights, such a peaceful and unforgettable experience. Walking distance to the Orang Utan sanctuary, and my favorite spot was the porch in our chalet, coffee in the morning overlooking the forest and lake.

Nice place, spacious. You get what you pay for. Very recommended for nature lovers. Very close to all activities in Sepilok. I would definitely come back. Large swimming / resting area. Rooms are fine, very close to jungle. That was the highlight.

My wife and I loved relaxing here on their large porch, restaurant, in the shallow pool and on our cabanas porch between trips to the nearby orangutan center and rainforest discovery center. Just a 15 minute walk to see the orangutans and sun bears and an 8 ringgit grab ride to the rainforest place. A full half hour ride to the labuk bay probiscus monkey preserve which was easily our favorite attraction here . We enjoyed spotting red leaf monkeys and pretty birds on the property and were told an orangatang briefly swung by one day we were here. The outdoor shower is fun but only trickles out of the bucket. One particular member of the staff was enthusiastic to help us spot primates.

Lovely resort with ideal location only 10 minutes walk to the Orang-utan sanctuary and Sun Bear centre which is a must. My husband was approached by a female Orang-tan and gently held his hand which was a very rare and amazing experience. The food at Sepilok Forest Edge Resort was excellent and the chef went out of his way to cater for our vegetarian/fish diet. We stayed in the glamping pool villa which is lovely and spacious and the pool was very much appreciated after staying in the heat most of the day. We also visited the Proboscis monkeys which is also a highlight.

This is a nice Resort set down a track about a 10 minute walk from Sepilok. The villas are ranged around a hillside location, and are spacious and comfortable. The bathroom we had was a bit tired, and the extra outdoor shower looked a bit worn out. There are a couple of trails which made for a pleasant walk, and a small pool to cool off in. The staff were all very friendly, as well as being knowledgeable about the various birds that appeared. Food was excellent, perhaps too plentiful, but prices for beer & wine were very steep (especially compared to lodges down the KInabatangan River). Overall, a very nice place to stay within the Sepilok area

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our tour of the Sabah region. We has 2 bungalows - a twin and a double. Bathrooms are basic but clean and has an outdoor shower as well as indoor. We didn’t always have hot water but it was so hot and humid here it was ok. The rooms felt a bit dark, but there was everything you needed - bottled water and hairdryer. We were surrounded by the jungle and it was great to hear all the sounds of nature around us. We had dinner here both nights and the food was tasty, cocktails were great, but breakfast was very limited. Being gluten intolerant I was glad I’d brought my own granola here, but they had plenty of GF options for the other meals. I’d say this is a good base for exploring key sites that the area has to offer - the Sepilok orangutan sanctuary, sun bear conservation centre and rainforest discover centre are all very close by.

We stayed for 2 nights at the start of our trip. We flew into Sandakan which is around 30 mins from SFER. We had a standard chalet which overlooked the unspoilt bush. The chalet itself was basic but comfortable, cold shower (which was fine as it was so humid) and a fridge which didnt work- we did point this out on our first night but it wasnt sorted- thats the only negative! The restaurant was great, although the menu doesnt reflect the one online, was much smaller! But food was cooked well and was tasty. Staff were all great, would recommend staying if your planning on visiting the orangutan centre.
