Very nice getaway situated on the small ridge which gives a refreshing breeze during mornings & evenings. Jason’s hospitality is much beyond what you meet in other resorts. Always willing to help and gives advices for our further plans on the island. We were not lucky to see the pygmy elephants during our 3days package as they migrated further to...

The Last Frontier Boutique Resort turned out to be an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Borneo Jungle. We combined the stay with a visit to Sepilok and were picked up by Jason there to bring us to the village of Bilit where the resort is situated. Jason is one of the nicest people we met during out travel...

The service was perfection. Our guide turned up to pick us up on time, Gert and Jason are very organised and you felt that your whole trip was in good hands. The location of the lodge was amazing, on top of a ridge in the rainforest right in the thick of nature. This meant we saw wild animals from the...

This is the best place you could stay in the area. The owners, Jason and Gert are very knowledgeable and welcoming and make so much effort to welcome you. They are great to chat to and so knowledgeable about Borneo and specifically their rainforest surroundings. The food is fantastic, the rooms very good as well, spacious and very clean. I...

We stayed for 3 days/2 nights at the Last Frontier and absolutely loved our experience here - one of our best memories from our 3 months travelling in Malaysia this summer.

This place is fantastic! From the moment we were picked up by Jason, to hiking up those 600 stairs, to waking up to see monkeys jumping from trees... I mean, it was perfection. The setting, the jungle cruise, the staff, the accommodations were flawless. I will highly recommend this place to anyone I know who is coming to Borneo. Thank...

As the sweat drips down, while the strong sun battling through the canopy picks you out, you reach step 342 and think, “Whose crazy idea was this anyway?”. “Yes, they did think we were mad,” says Last Frontier co-owner Gurt, from Belgium, referring to the locals’ reaction on hearing of the plan to build a lodge on one of the...

Cannot recommend this enough. LFR is relatively simple accommodation however a true jungle experience. Jason was a terrific host (sadly Gert was in hospital) and it was so educational. Saw wild Orang-utans and many other animals. As long as you can deal with some stairs up to the lodge and are ok with leaving behind a minor few modern comforts...
