We stayed here for a night whilst on a group tour.

The lodge is located just a short motor boat ride away from Bilit village. The family who run it are very welcoming and can answer any questions.

Bring your insect spray, as it will be needed!

I was allocated a private room, which was well-kept. Although I didn’t find the bed comfortable, it was only a personal preference.

The meals were good quality and had some variation compared with other local offers.

Definitely stay here when in the area.

Set on the banks of the Kinabatangan River surrounded by the rainforest, we had an excellent 2 night stay at the Lodge and wished we'd stayed longer. The restaurant and sundeck overlook the river and are great places to sit and relax. We were fortunate enough to stay in brand new accommodation which was outstanding. Our 3 river cruises yielded plenty of wildlife including a wild orangutan, and we were rewarded with a rare glimse of a clouded leopard in 1 of our 2 night walks. The staff were excellent and the food was really good. Mosquitos are numerous so keep applying insect repellant.

Very excited about this visit, but as we arrived by boat the guide remarked that the rain had caused the river to break its banks. What had been land was covered in water. The walk ways were hazardous as they were wet and slimy and I fell on one occasion and cracked my knee. Others in our group also slipped. One boat trip ended with a torrential downpour and we were all wet to the bone.Most of our night walks were cancelled due to the heavy rain fall and the one walk we did in the ‘jungle’ was a wasted of time. We saw nothing and just walked in mud and bitten by mosquitoes. I would avoid going here in the monsoon season.

What a great place for wildlife lovers. Comfortable accommodation, friendly staff and great experiences everyday. Right in the middle of the jungle.
We were lucky enough to see the pygmy elephants on several occasions along with a plethora of other wonderful animals.

Full day tour from Sandakan which we booked through the delightful Myra at the Sheraton Sandakan. Our tour leader Paul was excellent. His knowledge and enthusiasm was a credit to him and his guidance through the cave was brilliant. Captain Sam on the river was diligent in finding wildlife for us to photograph and went beyond our expectations.
Would highly recommend this day tour to anyone wishing to see native animals in the wild and have the amazing cave experience.
