I have been looking forward to writing this review! This place is amazing! Excellent value for money and gorgeous chalets. Check in was friendly and welcoming and I felt like home in the room. I instantly relaxed. Location is excellent... I wish I'd stayed here the whole time and used it as a base for my travel around Borneo. The...

We stayed here for 5 nights and where wondering whether that might be too long as most people only stay a couple of nights to go to the Orangutang sanctuary and maybe a river cruise. We loved every minute and were actually sad to be leaving. The chalets are very spacious and comfortable. They do not have wifi in the...

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful relaxing time. The staff are friendly and helpful, luxurious modern lodge with twin sinks. It's really good value for money. The food was fantastic and the resort is set around a very pretty landscaped lake. It's a 5 minute walk to the orangutan rehab centre, enabling return visits throughout the day....

Sepilok Nature Resort is beautiful. From the moment I arrived I was like wow! But there's a couple of small things. The room's are very cute but a little old and smelt a bit musty. There's no hot water (it's pretty hot so it's not a huge deal), and I couldn't remove the plug from the bath so there was...

We wanted to stay here but it was fully booked so we stayed around the corner and came here for meals three times a day..honestly worth every penny. The food is beautiful and the vegetarian lasagnd is delicious. It looks like an amazing place to stay, such detail has gone into making this place look unreal. We only wish we...

This was a lovely little lodge in the rainforest. Our room was lovely with a little decked area. The only thing was the bathroom facilities were a little tired. The food and drinks at dinner were excellent - it was lovely looking out over the lake. Fantastic location next to orangutang sanctuary and sun bears. If you have a chance,...

We really enjoyed our stay at Sepilok Nature Resort. We stayed 3 nights and you need at least that if you want to have a good look at the Orang Utans. The resort is very picturesque with a lake and lush rainforest trees and flowers all around. Wooden walkways weave their way between the rooms including across bridges. They give...

We were longing for a good sumptuous meal after a few days in Sandakan. The place where we happened to be staying close by did not have a very good restaurant. On our last day in Sandakan we discovered this beautiful Resort,had lunch at their Restaurant and I must say,I was suriprised at the high standard of meals that were...

We got a "welcome juice" while we were waiting for the room to be ready and also for the attractions to be open. The room turned out to be an entire bungalow. It was huge and clean, with a nice balcony and a nice view to the lake. In the morning that we left, we were supposed to be picked...
