This is the jungle so we weren't expecting 5* resort facilities. The huts are air conditioned which is great. The shower is hot if you turn the pressure down. The pillows are uncomfortable and the room very basic. Breakfast was disappointing - 1 egg, 1 sausage and 3 slices of white bread. There is no wifi but we bought a DiGi SIM card (RM30 for 7.5GB) and there was 3G reception here. We stayed here because Mr Aji uses them for his tours. He is simply fantastic so please do not hesitate to book a jungle tour with him.

We stayed here four nights in June. The rooms are very basic, but do have air conditioning and hot water. No wifi anywhere at the lodge, unfortunately. The meals were very basic meat and vegetables, but filling and tasty enough. Every morning we took a boat trip at 6:30 and the staff had coffee, tea, and a light snack for us. When we got back from the river at 9:00, we were given a full breakfast of eggs, sausage, toast, and hot drinks. If you want luxury, this is not the place for you, but if you're looking for an affordable place to stay with three meals a day and pleasant staff, then this is the place for you.

The rooms are nice and clean, the staff really cool. It is an excelent budget option for independent travelers. Their guide is really amazing and will try his best for you to spot animals, he is very good at doing it (: no wifi though...

A very basic lodge set in a nice surrounding. All meals very simple, but that may be attributable to the fact that we were the only 2 guests. November is low season. Had a very nice guide that took US around mainly in boat trips in the rainforest, were we saw wild orangutangs, proboscis monkeys and orders. Really nice experience.

We've booked a 3 days 2 nights package and it was stunning. Nice huts suitable for 2 persons with air condition. The staff was very friendly and carying. The food is ok for the price. We enjoyed very much the river rides and have been lucky with our great guide Zakicen (cha). He learned us to understand the animals, their behaviour, lend us His binocular and his books of every Living species in that area! He really lives the Ideals! The boat drivers are incredible and eyes like a hawk!! They are able to find every animal creeping in/on the river, trees or bushes! Amazing! Thank you so much for this great time! Thumbs up for this nice place!
