Excellent place to stay. It is the nicest hostel I have stayed in. Great location in the middle of the Borneo jungle. Staff really friendly and helpful. Our room was great, with clean white sheets and great shower and toilet facilities.

This is for sure THE location I will mainly remember from Borneo ! The place is very nice, in the middle of the nature, the staff is really nice and always helpful, free shuttle to the main areas. Of course, if you like 5 stars hôtels, you will be disappointed ! But if you like observing the nature, taking care...

The location is Amaizing,the room are fantastic with super view (we got the duplex delux, which is not expensive for what you get). The food is very good (and everyday with nice options if you are vegetarian). I guess the best part was the staff, always helpfull and with a big smile! 100% RECOMENDED!

This place was just lovely. Nestled in the jungle, the rooms are all cosy huts with stunning views (especially from the shower!) the staff were all very friendly. They offered free transport to/from Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. The food was nice and it had free water.

This place had everything going for it. Beautiful rooms, decent price, great staff and lovely grounds. The only reason it is not a 5 is because of the food. There is a preset menu that you choose from every day for your dinner. The food was not that good or plentiful. Breakfast was included and came out cold. Since we...

During my trip to Malaysia, I have spent a few days in this jungle resort. I thought it was a wonderful oasis. The outdoor shower overlooking the jungle, the wok as a sink and the chalets on stilts make sure you really get into another world. There was also enough vegetarian food available at a reasonable price. From here I...

We stayed three nights here in mid March. Communication via email before was very prompt and helpful, with them organising us a taxi from the airport. This is a little isolated and about 20 - 30 mins from the airport. We loved it! It is quiet and serene, and our ridge hut opened onto the jungle. They offer a free...

We were recommended to this little retreat by a handful of friends and we weren't disappointed. As the saying goes "you get what you see on the packet". The whole staff are very obliging and its a wonderful place to stop and reflect. The chalets are quaint (although they can be hot when closed up all day) and its lovely...
