Travellers' Choice
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.

Amazing two nights in the rainforest. The rooms are quite basic but that's all part of the charm. It is an Eco Lodge so it's helping keep the impact of tourism loss on the rainforest. Food was buffet style but varied and very tasty. Chef came out to see guests sometimes. All staff were brilliant, warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming. Definitely the right balance of nature & creature comforts.

Lovely location, only accessible by boat. Very comfortable accommodation in individual lodges. The meals were very good - three courses, soup, choice of main, and fresh fruits for dessert. Friendly helpful staff. The boat trips - 6am, 4pm and night, were brilliant, and we saw so much, from crocs sunning themselves, to troupes of monkeys in the trees by the water's edge, as well as so many birds. And just seeing so many stars during the night cruise was reward enough, without everything else! Just wonderful.

Stayed as part of a jungle tour. Room OK basic, water not hot for showers, but still a loo and a sing, have been in worse. Food was buffet style so you could have more of what as an individual you like, good prawns. Guides were good finding lots of animals for us.

We stayed here as part of a Buffalo Jungle Tour to Sabah. The lodge, the restaurant and the general facilities although rustic were entirely in keeping with an experience I The Bornean rain Forrest. The hospitality was outstanding and the river safari was fascinating. We saw wild orangutans, all sorts of monkeys including the unusual Proboscis monkeys, eagles, crocodiles and were so very lucky to see the endangered Pygmy Elephants of Borneo. Just an experience of a lifetime.

Excellent, friendly staff and boat drivers. Nice simple mini-houses, more than reasonable foods (just not a wide selection) both tasty and well presented. Everything you need for boat trips up/down river to see all kinds of birds, orangs, alll other kinds of monkeys, crocs.... lizards.....long list. Really nice comfortable environment and they clearly try to not leave a big footprint. Walter is the 'headmaster' and runs a very nice campsite... the monkeys respect his area....and run alll around the campsite otherwise. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
