This is a perfect forest retreat for those who want to be close to the Orangutan and Sun Bear sanctuaries as they are only 10-15 minutes walk from the resort.
It’s a series of rustic chalets set on the edge of the rain forest. We had the 3 deluxe chalets for the 6 of us. They’re in various places around the site but not too close together so you have lots of privacy.
The food at The Nest restaurant on site is absolutely superb and seems to be a real ménage of east meets west cuisine, all at very reasonable prices.
As per other reviews this is no super-swanky hotel and the “pool” is a very small splash pool. None of that matters as you’re here to see the amazing wildlife which is very close by.
Check the feeding times for the Orangutans as that’s the best time to visit (we were there for the 3pm feeding and it was superb). Same for Sun Bears and they were out and about at 10am before feeding at 11.
We went on the night tour of the Rainforest Discovery Centre and that was also excellent. Keep your eyes peeled for giant flying squirrels, macaques, mouse dear, bats and more.

Room tip: Wear long sleeves, long trousers and bring a waterproof and a torch

We just had a winderful time in this lush gampling villa, with our own private pool, the stars at night and the sound of nature. Excellent service from the friendly staff, and the place is just 5 minutes to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabiitation Center and 10 minutes to the Rainforest Discovery Center Park, both emjoyable visits to Mother Nature.

We loved the hotel. The staff are really friendly and nice, the rooms are beautiful and the jungle edge setting is breathtaking. The restaurant serves pretty good food and the beer is cold but at 200MYR a bottle the wine is overpriced. Sadly the pool was out of action when we arrived which was disappointing, but it is in walking distance to the Orangutan sanctuary and the Sun Bear sanctuary too- The price is very good also

Relaxing stay at the beautiful Forest Edge. Waking up to sounds of the rainforest, breakfast in stylish open restaurant, exploring nearby wildlife conservation, dinner & drinks below the stary sky and enjoying the friendly service. Perfect escape from KL. Loved Sabah

We had booked to stay here in June. We cancelled in April due to covid. Cancellation policy was full refund if cancelled 3 days in advance. They tried to then alter their policy and say it was only 50% but I had original booking form.

I still have received no refund 4 months later and they have made many excuses. I have now passed this over to my credit card company as fraud.

Wouldn’t recommend.
