What a wonderful place! Nothing was too much trouble and the team really looked after us from the moment we were picked up from the pier and taken to our Chalet. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the air con works well. My son is vegetarian and lovely food appeared for him at each of our meals. Paul, our guide, along with our fabulous boat captain made each river cruise special as they were so skilled and knowledgeable. We were even lucky enough to see the pigmy elephants. A very special place and stay giving memories that will last a lifetime

This was a highlight of the trip for me! I booked through River Junkies and everything went great - we did a 2D/1N trip. The bus picked us up from our Sepilok hotel right on time and we were off to Bilit Rainforest Lodge. When we got there, they provided a snack and drinks before boarding our first river cruise. We saw all kinds of wildlife on the cruise - proboscis monkeys, pig tailed macaque, long tailed macaque, silverleaf monkeys, various types of birds...and the elusive Bornean pygmy elephant!! It did start pouring rain on us while we were going to the elephant but the water was worth it to me to see the elephant (my pics are awful of the elephant because of the rain though unfortunately). The dinner provided was excellent and they had chicken, seafood, and vegetarian

Hi Meaghan G, Thank you for the 5-star review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! The river cruise on the Kinabatangan River is definitely the highlight and you were very lucky to see the Bornean pygmy elephant, even though it was raining! But there's no rainforest without a little rain right ;) and indeed, the monkeys are very mischievous and playful so taking care of your belongings is good advice! We hope to see you and your family back in Borneo and staying with us again in the near future! All the best!

So sad to have left this place after 2 nights and and 2 action packed days. Paul our guide was so enthusiastic and was never off duty. He looked after us from start to finish and made sure we saw as much as we could. The food here was delicious and plentiful, catering well for a vegetarian diet also. The staff were charming and attentive. Captain Ronnie knew exactly where to find animals along the river and we saw many types of birds, macaques, crocodiles, monitor lizards. Do not expect 5 star luxury but this place is very comfortable and you will be well looked after. Would return in a heartbeat.

overall stay was wonderful. Spacious room, 2 double beds in each room. Separate shower and toilet. Suitable for Family as each 2 chalet is adjoining and has a connecting door. buffet spreads are amazing, freshly cooked meal everytime. Guide and staffs are outstanding. Our Guide, Man is doing beyond his duty. Never failed to amazed us, and he deserve a praise. Mobile coverage is not really that great. Wifi is available, but limited.

The reason to be at this location is to see the wildlife. Although you never know what animals will show themselves the entire experience of being in their world is thrilling. This lodge makes that experience happen while on the river or through jungle walks. Most importantly I always felt safe around the snakes, leeches and other species whose world I invaded. Memories to share for a long time.
