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.

Our room was basic but clean and tidy. The bathroom needed re-decorated and didn't seem all that clean. The food was OK, not all that much choice but edible. The staff seemed nice enough but seemed very uncertain of what to do - they were pretty much all young teenagers. No one seemed to be in charge.

What a tour through Amazing Borneo.

A special shout out to Azman and Captain Jack for being amazing tour guides and spotting animals from impossible distances!!

Gomantang caves were a really good introduction, seeing the maroon langur was a bonus!!

BRL was so calm and relaxing. Accommodation was excellent (are own chalet) and food varied and interesting. There is not much to do in between river cruises however sitting in hammocks, sunbathing, chilling and reading was ideal for us. The actual river cruises were awesome, I was surprised at the varied wildlife and the amount of it that you can see from the boats. The night cruise produced a different aspect to the rainforest and the ability to get so close to the birds. All the guides were excellent and informative.

Seeing the wild orangutans was the highlight and we were happy to watch them for ages.

Thank you Bilit!!!

What a wonderful and unique experience. So much wildlife. Staff went above and beyond. Accomadation was labelled as "basic" but really it was well above average and very spacious!! We loved it. Food was exceptional. We spent many hours on the river spotting crocs, all the monkeys, birds even wild orangutans! Cannot recommend this enough. This is a must do in Borneo.

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 !
