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,…
Amazing location near the the main attractions. You are in the middle of the jungle but still feel safe and looked after. The staff is very friendly. Thank you. The main restaurant serve. Ice affordable food.
