Having visited the Danum Valley prior to coming here I had my reservations it would live up to my “jungle experience” expectations. However, it soon surpassed them. The chalets are great and tastefully decorated. The resort is within walking distance to the orangutan sanctuary and if you don’t feel like walking it’s very easy to get a grab (Asian version of Uber). The receptionists were great at organising trips; I’d highly recommend the river cruise. Would highly recommend staying here!

We loved our stay at the Sepilok Forest Edge Resort. We were in the superior chalet, which was beautifully decorated and far more spacious than we needed. I absolutely loved the outdoor bathroom (we had an indoor one as well!) The resort is in a great location in the jungle, within walking distance to Sepilok Orangutan and Sun bear conservation centres. It was well maintained and beautiful surroundings. The resort has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Breakfasts aren't that great, but evening meals were good.

The resort is super convenient to the Sun Bear Sanctuary and the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. We had no trouble getting Grabs at any stage to go further afield. We stayed in the superior chalet, and it was well appointed and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, including helping us get a treasured possession home which was left behind in our room. The setting is very peaceful. The restaurant food provides a good range of options and at reasonable prices. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Nothing better than relaxing on the resort restaurant deck and watching the evening sky and listening to the sounds of the jungle after a great day at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and going out to the very entertaining proboscis monkeys at the late afternoon session at Labuk Bay. Cold drinks and an excellent menu based on local ingredients capped off a great day away from the 'hustle and bustle' of downtown Sandakan! Nice rooms and very helpful resort staff.

We left this “resort” with mixed feelings. Initially, we had a very positive first impression and were so pleased with the friendly, thoughtful staff who welcomed us. Our cabin was clean and cosy, with a very cool indoor/outdoor washroom. The restaurant area has a large open deck which overlooks a lake. At night the lights give the whole resort area a very warm, welcoming glow. This is a very easy and convenient jumping-off place for various jungle adventures and tours. However, we soon came to find that the menu was deceptive in its descriptions. Most dishes were not at all what we expected. The strangest moment was Christmas Day - most of the restaurant area was closed off for a private party hosted by the owners of the resort. We as guests all felt oddly intrusive,

Not sure why getting such a high rating here. Shower water pressure is so low and not hot. No signage of hotel. People might easily missed the turning. No tv in room. No wifi in room. Unless you love nature so much and would like to stay away from the digital world. This is the place for you.

Wow, what an experience. I stayed in a bungalow with a lovely bathroom and even a private outdoor shower. The balcony caught the sunset and the room was spacious and comfortable. But the highlight has to be staff. The bar tender was so friendly and engaging and helped me assess where to travel to next. There’s also a staff member with a lovely voice and you can hear her singing to herself inside the kitchen. Wish she would do a live show in the evenings! It’s just a happy place to be. Just two things to note. 1) the pool is hot, like a jacuzzi. Not refreshing at all after a long, sweaty day. And 2) the mosquitoes are out of control. The hotel really should put mosquito nets in the bedrooms, it’s the jungle after all! Take lots of potent insect repellent.

Just left the resort and if ever would be back to Borneo will definitely stay at Forest Edge Resort! - Location is great as only 15 mins walk from Orangutan and Sun bear sanctuary. - Bungalow (stayed in delux) specious with nice balcony and bathroom facing the wild pond ( we’ve spotted orangutan while sitting outside and drinking tea) - resort land is quite big and bungalows spread which is a positive side as you won’t have a neighbour next door - food in restaurant is good but yes drinks could be cheaper - breakfast good - I’ve seen people complaining about small pool- really that’s why you came to Borneo? - Maria - stray dog with her puppy around - if you love dogs please give her some left overs ;) - WiFi working around reception/restaurant area only but that’s enough if you

We loved our little bungalow and enjoyed three days exploring the area and the amazing wildlife. Bucketlist for sure! The staff is incredible and the restaurant was delicious - both the breakfast the was included and the two dinners we had. Highly recommend.
