We did an overnight sat with our 3 year old son and it was a very pleasant stay. The staff we welcoming, helpful and professional. Our room was comfortable and clean and the setting in the rainforest was beautiful. Meals were good with a buffet for lunch and dinner offering a range of food (something for everyone). Breakfast was a cooked meal.
The afternoon cruise was good and we got to see proboscis monkeys up close and a couple of other species. The river is quite pretty and we preferred this over the Klias River cruise. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.We went on a night cruise also and got to see some birds like the beautiful kingfishers and a baby crocodile.
Would recommend a two day trip here if you want to see a beautiful river and wildlife. Also the lodge and staff are welcoming of small children.
