We stayed 3 nights here at the end of a rainforest safari trip. Fantastic accommodation and setting. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful, made us feel at home and looked after us throughout, suggesting activities each day that we could all enjoy and finding the best spots for snorkelling on the reef. The food was consistently wonderful and the chef went out of his way to discuss the meals he was planning and take into account our preferences. An unforgettable experience and somewhere we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Stopped by on a month long tour of Asia and was surprised by this hidden Gem off the the south west coast of Sabah. The resort has an amazing location on the previously screened Survivor Island Borneo Series for those of us who watched it back then. Our accommodation was a huge villa located right by the sea fronted by white sand and crystal blue coral reef waters teeming with lobsters and fish. The resort has a lovely arrival hall and possibly the biggest pool in Sabah. All in all, a great experience with lovely service and curated meals using the resort's own organic produce. We actually hope to keep this quiet as long as possible before the tourists begin to discover this new sanctuary. It is but a fraction of the price charged at the more established destinations.

What an overpriced fake! This resorts has the prices of an ultra-luxury resort and the style of medium priced city hotel. It looks like wood? Well, it's painted steel or plastic. It looks like stones? It's painted concrete. For well more than US$1000 per night one would expect a good restaurant with fresh food. Nope.... Being the only guest meant that the staff was not really motivated to work and that no fresh food was at disposition. There is a spa menu, but massages are available in ones room only or on the beach. Huge TVs in the villas, but no TV signal. A barely functioning WLAN, but no functiong phone system. And the beach? What little beach there is, it is not clean, nobody bothering to collect waste. Small miracle I was the only guest for the whole 5 days!

From the minute you arrive and see the staff lined up to greet you on the jetty to the moment you leave with them waving you off, you are treated like royalty or some sort of "A" lister. To say we have never stayed anywhere like this would be an understatement. The villas are so luxurious and larger than our house. Your "small" private pool is lovely and you are spoilt for choice of where to sit on your private terrace. We were the only guests for most of the time when we were there, so even had the main pool and beach to ourselves. The staff are amazing and so attentive, but not annoyingly so. The spa treatments were also excellent. The menu blends western and Malaysian foods, although as there were so few people there it was a set menu with little choice. The chef pops out to chat and make sure you are happy. They even have a flock of horn bills and monitor lizards, so the wildlife box is ticked too. Save up and stay here if you can.

We have just returned from the most fantastic stay at Borneo Eagle Resort, which has now easily taken the crown for the best place I have ever stayed! The transfer to the resort was very easy and all arranged by the hotel, who communicate quickly and clearly. We arrived to be greeted by a line-up of all the wonderful staff of the resort and were shown to our villa by the very welcoming and accommodating manager. We had chosen a pool villa, which in fact is the cheapest of the 3 villa options, but was still pure luxury. It was extremely spacious, with the most beautiful view of the sea and the sunrise. The photographs of the villa's private pools do not do them justice, they are actually much larger than they look in the photographs. We were provided with activities such as hiking (a very short and easy hike) to the nearby mud volcano, kayaking at sunset and snorkelling. The sunset kayaking in particular is something we will never forget. The staff were all very attentive and made us feel very special. The food is absolutely delicious. I would love to come back. It is very expensive compared to other island resorts in Borneo, but it was worth every penny to avoid the crowds, to have peace and quiet and to have such a special and memorable experience.
