Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we had to cancel our trip to Borneo. Like many other people, I have had to cancel numerous flights and hotels. I just wanted to say Myne Travel refunded our booking with ease, unlike some of the big tour operators and airlines I am still being fobbed off by. I think this says a lot about the integrity of Myne Travel and I wouldn’t hesitate in booking with them again, when we are able to do our trip to Borneo.
We booked our tour & the accommodation through Amazing Borneo. Our bathroom was a bit tried but the room was clean with a lovely balcony view looking out over the River. We didn’t have anyone go into our room to make beds ect this didn’t matter as we only stayed 2 nights. Patrick picked us up from Sepilock and as we drove he was very informative. With Patrick as our guide we saw some fantastic wildlife on the River and on the walks. Sun loungers would have been nice on the decking area somewhere to relax in between trips.
We spent 2 days at Myne Resort, and absolutely loved it. The common area and rooms were clean and very nice. The view of the river was stunning. I think what made our visit top-notch was our guide Patrick. He's a local with great English, and he made our time so special. He was happy to answer any and all questions we had with a smile, and was so kind. The river cruises were great! We saw tons of proboscis monkeys and macaques, hornbills, kingfishers, crocodiles, and more. Our night walk in the jungle was another highlight. We saw a civet, which walked around us for a couple of minutes, eating berries. In the jungle we saw tons of interesting insects - a meter-long stick bug, a juvenile tarantula, lantern bugs, etc. Perhaps most amazing of all was that Patrick spotted a wild male orangutan in the trees near the resort. He went with us to see it, and we watched the orangutan for about 30 minutes in the trees just above us. Eventually the orangutan actually entered the grounds of the resort and sat there. We stood nearby and watched it. You really can't beat that! In addition to that, the staff cooked us nice and simple vegan meals, and there was always plenty of food and coffee to be had. I 100% recommend this place, and would go back in a second!…
The resort is set on the bank on a bend of the Kinabatangan River. The rooms are clean with a good wet room style shower room, all appear to have a river view, but with a lot of steps to get to them. There are two river cruisers, morning and evening and you see slightly different things so I recommend doing both
We would like to thank the staff of Myne for our nice stay there! About 2/3 hours travel from Sandakan this resort is situated in the middle of the jungle right on the edge of the Kinabatangan river. The view is stunning! Everything is very well arranged, from meals to activities including jungle hikes and several boat tours. We saw many animals and the scenery is amazing. One tip: make sure to bring your mosquito repellent!
