The reason to be at this location is to see the wildlife. Although you never know what animals will show themselves the entire experience of being in their world is thrilling. This lodge makes that experience happen while on the river or through jungle walks. Most importantly I always felt safe around the snakes, leeches and other species whose world I invaded. Memories to share for a long time.

After spending time in the Orangutan sanctuary, my wife and I spent 2 nights at the lodge. We got big smiles from all of the staff upon our arrival and were made to feel really welcome. Our lodge itself was really spacious and comfortable. All of our meals were excellent and plentiful. Our trips on the river were brilliant, we managed to see Oragutans in the wild, lots of crocodiles, snakes, many different types of monkeys and birds. We even had a civet cat and a family of wild boar come to visit us back at the lodge. All in all it was a really enjoyable and fascinating trip.

Ps, a big big thank you to our guide Asme who was absolutely amazing. His knowledge and personality made our visit so much more enjoyable. We will definitely return.

My wife and I arrived at Bilit Rainforest Lodge for a 3 night stay after being met and transfered from Tabin Wildlife Reserve, by Aziz who was to be our guide for the duration of our stay at Bilit Rainforest Lodge.
The trip from Tabin to Bilit by car takes approx 3.5 hours, which passed quickly with Aziz explaining what we were likely to see and experience whilst at the lodge and during the boat wildlife spotting trips, usually 2 trips per day and a night excursion.
On arrival at the lodge we were welcomed by the management given a non alcoholic drink and shown to our cabin, this was roomy, clean with ceiling fan and air conditioning and onsuite toilet / shower / washbasin.
Food was good and varied with alchoholic drinks available at reasonable cost.
The boat trips were very good especially with our guide Aziz spotting numerous birds, orangutans, proboscis monkeys, short and long tail macaque monkeys, massive salt water crocodile, but unfortunately no elephants.
We would not hesitate to recommend Bilit Rainforest Lodge as part of a Borneo Jungle experience.

Visited with teenage kids and we all loved it. Accommodation was basic, but clean and comfortable, and you do need to remember where you are. However the wildlife and the staff were fantastic. Cruising on the river allows you to get so close to the wildlife, which seems totally unperturbed by our presence. Unless of course you watch it wandering through the camp (macaques and wild pigs). The manger took us on a short walk into the village and gave us an insight into the lives of the local people, which was fascinating. As most of the activities are from a boat then you don’t need many special clothes but good sunscreen and mosquito repellent are a must.

We stayed in this rainforest expanse for 2 nights of our honeymoon to Asia. We did not have any preconceptions on arrival but were warmly greeted by the excellent manager Jimmy. Following our welcoming drink (non acloholic) we were shown to our upgraded cabin (Free) by the manager and following a brief tour we were left to relax and enjoy the delights of the wild rainforest.

It is set beside Bilit village on elevated wooden walkways. Wild life is literally at your door which makes for a very authentic experience. The cafeteria was comfortable and they made a special effort on the last night of our stay for our honeymoon decorating our table with flowers. The food was nice and tasty with plenty of choice.

We did a night cruise with Jimmy and another member of staff. Their ability to spot and identify wildlife at night was remarkable. We found them to be very knowledgeable and about the various species we encountered. They both had an excellent ability to communicate in English and field our many questions without difficulty.

Overall the staff were very friendly and accommodating as much as possible. They went out of their way on the cruises to let us experience the available wildlife as upclose as possible, really enjoyed the cruises, once in a life time experience! Definitely recommend as a must see, hard to put the experience into words.

Thank you Jimmy and all the staff at Bilit Rainforest Lodge!

Room tip: Bring lots of insect repellent!!! Also do not be afraid of house lizards
