We went as a family, 2 kids 10 and 14, with no expectations and Bilit blew us away. Cabins were much better than expected, air conditioned and clean. Meals were simple but delicious with more than enough choices, e.g. chicken, fish, lamb, vegetables, rice, soup for dinner. The guides were well trained and informative, you can choose to chill, read a book in your room or the games room, or fish off the dock, or go on the morning, afternoon,evening and night cruises to spot birds and animals on the river, or go hiking thru the jungle. My boys are still talking about their jungle advehture a month after we returned so it definitely left a great impression. This is NOT roughing it. Dont expect 5 star and you will be very happily impressed. It was defnitely much more than i expected for being 2 hours drive away from Sandakan, in the middle of the Borneo jungle.
