Bilit Rainforest Lodge

Reviewed 23 July 2016

The overall (big) size of the chalet makes them a bit less cosy, but the overall location (surrounded by the river, rainforest and wildlife) is truly amazing! Chalets are overall clean, comfy and facilitates are great (good local good; don't expect any hamburgers, hotdogs or french fries, but truly great local food!). Don't expect 5-star luxury (e.g. shower is sometimes a bit cold, mosquitos are (obviously) everywhere (bring DEET insect repellent), but you're in the middle of an ancient rainforest. A fantastic experience!

Tip: take a stroll along the river, to the neighboring (tiny) village or into the jungle at the 'back side' of the logde complex (make sure you ask the logde staff whether a stroll through the rainforest is allowed; in case of elephants nearby the logde walking into the jungle is not allowed and dangerous).

We stayed here for two nights, and had a nice villa / cottage with two large beds, big enough for 4. Peaceful place. Loved the River Cruises, we saw lots of animals! - Pygmy Elephants, crocodiles, Proboscis Monkeys, Orang Utans and many more.
Beautiful nature along the river.

Nice place to stay in a quietness and to feel the jungle with comfortable ambience. Big thanks for help to our guide, Darwis Halide! We received a lot of information about living in Malaysia and stories about animals and plants. Very interesting!

An arranged trip by travel agents, we had no idea what it would be like and were very impressed with the luxury in the middle of the rainforest. Greeted by very friendly, welcoming staff who were happy to help us with anything and great accommodation. They run several different activities a day, river cruises, walks and trips to nearby attractions. We were lucky enough to see elephants and orangutans and the guides can tell you so much about the amazing animals you see. Would definitely visit here again.
