We spend 2 nights here and had a great time
The rooms are very basic but the bathroom is clean and works
Lots of monkeys around the chalets plus we saw civet and monitor lizard
There is a great night walk through the jungle but make sure you have your leech socks with you
We trekked to an ox bow lake through deep jungle which was fun but exhausting
Food is fine but basic
The river cruises morning and evening as the big events where you see all sorts of monkeys and birds , even crocodiles and may be a wild orangutan
Staff are friendly and helpful
Make sure you hire wellies for the jungle treks as the mud and water is almost knee deep and don't lose sight or the guide !

We stayed for 2 nights. A very friendly indigenous lodge that offers basic accommodation and good food. The location for river trips was great with our excellent guide (Man) and "Mr T" boat driver finding lots of wildlife for us on our 3 journeys down the river. If you like immersing yourself into local culture and supporting small family ventures (as we do) this is the place for you.

This is a basic rainforest lodge with some nice features. A nice decked area and the buffet food was fine. The bathroom facilities were particularly good for the rainforest. However, the bed was covered in ants and the room had a strange smell - remember this is the rainforest! Our afternoon boat trip was a little shorter than expected, which was a shame as we had been waiting around all afternoon for it. The place is so remote there is nothing else to do or nowhere to walk to. It would be nice if jungle walks were available or something to make the most of the time in Borneo, even if this costs extra. The night time cruise was quite expensive but worth it as we saw bats and beautiful kingfishers.

We spent two nights at this beautiful rainforest lodge. They offer cruises 3 times a day on the Kinabatangan river where you will have the chance to spot wildlife such as orangutans, proboscis monkey, Pygmy elephants, hornbills and many others. The service in very good and they offer very nice food 3 times a day. The bungalows are quite spacious with both a toilet and a shower room. It's just the perfect place to relax. Make sure you visit the Gomatong cave while you are in the area. If you are pressed on time or a restless person I'd suggest just staying for one night because there is a lot of free time.

As part of the day eco tour we did from Sandakan we had lunch and afternoon tea here before setting off on the 2 hour twilight cruise. The lunch was good...a small but tasty selection of hot dishes and it was reasonably good quality... the lodge is clean and I would consider staying a night if we are to return..
