An eco-friendly lodge nestled along the riverbank of Kinabatangan river the longest and biggest river in Sabah.The Lower Kinabatangan is one of Sabah's most splendid natural treasures and the richest concentration of wildlife in South East Asia. The lodge has 12 rooms with an additional twin-sharing handicapped friendly room equipped with air-condition and attached bathroom. Appreciate the "Green" details practise by the lodge where at night all electrical items run on solar power.

We spent two nights at Borneo Nature Lodge as part of our independent tour of Borneo. The tours that they organized for us were truly fantastic. In addition to the morning and afternoon "classic" tours, we booked a private night walk and a night boat safari. They were all amazing experiences, especially the night safari was incredible! Our boat driver was so enthusiastic that he even made the tour longer so that we could manage to see the biggest kingfisher bird sleeping close up (and we did!). Unfortunately we found the accommodation really poor, especially for the price that we payed. I do not mind simple, but I do mind dirty. As other travelers pointed out, the bathroom was dirty and smelly (see photos), the room wasn't that clean either, the 'Watching tower" was closed and

We were greeted at the airport by our tour guide Jame who was extremely friendly. We went to the Sepilok urang utan rehabilitation centre and Jame expertly guided us through giving lots of fantastic information and insight into the role of the centre. We then visited the sunbears nearby. Then a 2 hour drive to meet the boat to take us down river to the lodge. At the lodge we had a welcome drink and our lunch. Throughout the stay the food was tasty well made home cooking with a good variety of choice. The room was simple with ACon and a ensuite with shower. We then commenced with further tours down the river and a jungle trek we were very fortunate to see 2 wild urang utan and many other species due mainly to Jame superb treking ability. We had a great time and would like to

Stayed here as part of a tour of Sabah area. We enjoyed it. We found our rooms clean and comfortable. The staff worked hard and were attentive. The river holds many adventures - lots of sightings of birds, monkeys, elephants, and a crocodile. Umbrellas available during one rain storm. A wonderful experience.

This lodge was promoted as being a “featured” accommodation by our tour company (Peregrine). Naturally we had expectations of a great experience. The lodge is very basic and severely in need of extensive maintenance. The rooms are old, tired and barely clean. The lodge claims to be an eco-lodge, yet it wraps glasses in individual plastic bags and provides soaps and shampoos in small plastic tubes (despite having empty liquid dispensers on the wall). The upper level of the viewing platform is closed due to a lack of maintenance (the wooden steps have rotted)– this is a shame as there are fantastic opportunities to see monkeys and wildlife around the camp. The lodge bar is closed as they do not have any ice (or any tonic water!) Other than the lovely young lady who serves

Staying here is all about being on the river. We arrived in the afternoon for a two night stay. We had a late afternoon trip on the river and then, on the following day, a morning trip and an afternoon trip. The river cruising was fabulous - peaceful, comfortable and we were able to see orang-utan, proboscis monkey and macaque monkeys from quite close range. Also saw an impressive assortment of birdlife. However, the accommodation was, to my mind, of a good backpackers style - not quite the four star we were expecting. Our room was reasonably clean and free from bugs (which I was very thankful for!), but was simple accommodation. Food was plentiful and tasty, and an effort was made to accommodate all dietary needs. However, you really need to have a good book with you,
