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.
I stayed here for 2 nights in September in Abai chalet. The chalet was a good size and it was a nice touch having an outside jacuzzi bath. The chalets are set in lovely grounds and you definitely feel at one with nature. The food is outstanding and the staff especially Nicki are very helpful and I look forward to returning one day.
