A great place to visit. We ended up here through a river junkie booking and was very pleased with it. Jason and Gert were excellent attentive hosts with lots of knowledge and passion of the surrounding rainforest and area. They also were wonderful at helping us book a bus down to semporna instead of our return transfer to Sandakan and waited with us until it arrived. The food was spectacular! The steps are long but adds to the adventure and experience. The boat for the river cruises did keep breaking down but the guide fixed it pretty quick. Didn't spot any elephants or orangutans on this trip, bit that's nature I guess. Plenty of proboscis and other wildlife. A wonderful experience, would recommend to everyone.

Our first venture after the lifting of the ban on travel within Malaysia and a good choice! The Last Frontier was comfortable and Gert was the ideal host. The food was the best we had during our tour of Sabah. Our guide took us on the river cruises where we saw a herd of Pygmy elephants and many proboscis and silver-lipped monkeys. A lovely eco- friendly and welcoming resort set high in the rainforest with a variety of wildlife. I would certainly recommend it to anyone wishing to discover the area.

Let's get the steps out of the way first - you do need to be relatively fit but its not that bad. I have COPD and apart from having to rest a couple of times (to admire the view) it wouldn't put me off returning.
We did a 3N4D package which was perfect as we never felt rushed. The package included 3 afternoon river trips and a couple of hilltop walks. We opted to forego one of the walks for an early morning river trip (well worth it) and we squeezed in a visit to the Gomantong Caves (about 30-minutes from the resort). We saw lots of wildlife (heard lots more) on the river trips but taking photos of Orangutangs from the boat proved quite difficult. The highlight for us was seeing the Pygmy Elephants on our last afternoon. Our guide Rodel was a star!
I should also mention that the rooms were clean and spacious and food delicious and freshly prepared! As there are only 4 rooms, there is no menu to choose from (having informed them of your dietary requirements prior to arrival). Beer and wine is readily available and reasonably priced.
All our transfers were arranged with Gert and everything went according to plan.
Thank you Gert and team for a fantastic few days.

Three of us stayed here and it was great. The tour guide was amazing and found us an elephant. The Food is delicious. We saw an orangutan at the site with her baby. We were very happy that we stayed here instead of a large resort.

Probably not for everyone... the stairs are uneven and you may go up and down three or four times a day (to get onto the river to look for wildlife) BUT worth every step. You are immersed in the jungle.
Rooms are simple but comfortable. And because the Resort is on a ridge, mosquitos etc were not a problem.
Jason and the staff team were great. They bother to remember everyone's name and somehow manage to meet all dietary requirements (gluten free pancakes for example!)
We booked direct - easy to get email responses and useful information to prepare.
