The river bank is littered with signs of many resorts. Choosing one where there is no road access means you are limited to the food of that place unless you take a water taxi. The lodge boats are not covered; Myne resort's boats had a cover. If it's pouring rain and your luggage and you are going across river to a bus or two hours down river, this might make a difference, or you are out wildlife spotting and it starts to pour. Food was basic and bland and never served hot as seemed norm throughout Malaysian Borneo hotels. You want to bring a mosquito net as rooms without fans had bugs buzzing around your head (walls aren't sealed well). I was in the best cabin in the place, one with a t.v. that didn't work (I don't use t.v.). You hear the mosque call to prayer from across the river in the am in all rooms. They burn leaves in piles right next to cabins so if you are sensitive give them notice so they don't burn before you arrive (maybe they could haul leaves away from the cabins then burn?). Women staff worked hard and were pleasant thus very good service rating.
