This is the perfect place to go if you want to get away from it all and enjoy mother nature. The lodge and rooms are comfortable, clean and cozy and the staff goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. The beds were comfortable and the food was tasty. Two river cruises a day offer a great opportunity to see animals in the wild - we were lucky enough to see orangoutangs, crocodiles, pigmy elephants, probiscus monkeys, snakes and several birds on our trips. The afternoons are perfect to lay in the hammock and read or to play games in the common area. They even have wifi for those of us who find it hard to completely disconnect. They set up a 4 day tour for us and everything was amazing. The tour guides Azman and Darwis were professional, informative and excellent animal spotters - they are a huge asset to this property, our stay would not have been the same without them. We went to the Gomantong Cave where they harvest the birds nests for bird nest soup and were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to watch them actually harvest the nests. I highly recommend this place for a few day get-away!
