#6 of 40 in Sandakan
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 three nights here and it's location is fantastic. From the Lodge we went on three river cruises ( small boats with 6 - 8 POB) searching for monkey's, crocs, birds, snakes and Pygmy Elephants. We managed to get 100's of photo's of everything apart from the Elephants which we only just missed. The accommodation is fairly basic, there is aircon from around 6am to 10pm and ceiling fans the rest of the time. We found this quite adequate and slept well. Our only criticism was the room was dusty and the towels had a real musty smell like they had been rolled up damp and had remained that way for some time. There is no TV so do have a book to read for relaxation times, each cottage has a verandah and outside seating where you can just chill out. The food is good and drinks

We stayed here for two nights during our Borneo Tour. We were 2 of a group of 23 and as there were only a few lodges we all had the place to ourselves. The rooms were basic but comfortable. It is not the cleanest place I have stayed, but a little bit of dirt never hurt any one. The food was the best I experienced during my whole time in Borneo. Breakfast was to die for. The biggest omelettes ever, all freshly cooked in front of you, hash browns, beans, bacon etc, fruit, toast and preserves, juice tea & coffee. Lunch was a soup, two or three choices of a main with rice and salad, fruit and desserts and similar in the evening. As we were travelling as part of an escorted tour, three mini river cruises were included. Between us there were three motor boats which took us up

Stayed overnight in a lodge which was a fabulous experience. We had the best time! Experienced a tropical thunderstorm, riverboat adventure, visits to bat caves, orangutans, sun bears, water village and a temple. Trip organised by Borneo tours and incentive travel and was so well organised. Facilities and food at the lodge were brilliant; staff were friendly; couldn’t fault any of it. Recommend a stay here 100%

The nature lodge is accessed by boat, The place is tired but the staff and the food were great, The staff at the restaurant were friendly and attentive but the boatman were excellent. They were so good at finding all the animals and birds that we wanted to see. The boat tours are a must do. This was an unforgettable experience.

Highly recommend BNL for some amazing tours in the jungle. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and our stay was fantastic. Vincent was the best tour guide we have ever met, so smart, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about everything we could possible imagine in Borneo. Highly recommend these guys for a great experience.
