We had a three night stay and had wonderful time. Exciting encounter with a jealous alpha male Orang was the high point but lots of hornbills, monkeys and languas. Even elephants. Comfortable lodge, excellent guide and a well organised program. Highly recommended.

We had a 3 night package at SRL which was perfect. Our guide, Joy, was knowledgeable and fun. The rooms are great, although a little noisy and hot water is scarce. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. There is so much wildlife here it seems a shame to be hunting for 'the big 5' all the...

This was such an amazing experience, and the staff are helpful and incredibly knowledgeable of the local flora and fauna. The accommodation was jungle luxury and you're surrounded by wildlife left and right. The food was great and they were very accommodating of my vegetarian diet, constantly providing me with vegetarian cuisine. The program was fun filled and we saw...

My second visit to Sukau definitely did not disappoint. The rooms and ensuites have had a makeover and while not lavish, are very stylish and comfortable- even air conditioned for much of the day! The facilities are well maintained and make it feel like you are deep in the jungle, a feeling enhanced by the local creatures that visit the...

Friendly, high standard, excellent guides and of course the wildlife. Our kids where 4 and 7 during our visit and they enjoyed the search for wild animals. Kids size life jackets where available for all boat trips.

We went here with Borneo Ecotours, and were treated very well. We got so lucky and saw pygmy elephants on the first time out! Also, saw the resident wild orangutan and her son! Wifi in the common area, so you have to leave your room, but hey, it's the rainforest! Unfortunately we caught them during construction (so there was some...

The Pro: The lodge is very nice, very comfortable for a hotel in the rainforest. Food is good, service is friendly. Nice setting and surroundings. Lots of animals to see! The Con: However, make sure when you book the hotel request a specific guide as well, as the guide can really make or break your rainforest experience. We have been...

Dear Mdm T, First of all, I wouild like to unreservedly apologize on behalf of my guides who unfortunately let not just you down but also himself and the whole team. We just concluded our investigations yesterday, getting to the bottom of what went wrong, why and what could be improved, and I wanted to make sure I responded to...

We stayed here for two nights with our Borneo Eco Tours package and the lodge is great! There's a small dip pool where you can cool off in or relax by, a big lobby area where you can sit and read or have a drink by the bar, a long board walk from which you can try to spot wildlife,...

We recently visited the Lodge for 4 days/3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The guides were amazing, and the things they could spot while we were racing down the river was impressive. It was a wonderful experience!
