We travelled by bus from Kota Kinabalu, 6 hours, and saw how the forests in Saba have been decimated for the sake of palm tree plantations. It was quite shocking. The Jungle Resort is part of a protected enclave of forest and borders the Orang utan sanctuary. Were it not for the strimmed grass you feel like you are amongst...

One of the larger resorts in Sepilok, and very spread out (around a five-minute walk from the farthest building to the restaurant). Clean, good value rooms, from cheap fan dorms to A/C doubles etc. (170 MYR for an A/C double incl breakfast). No WiFi in the rooms, just the common area. Nice small swimming pool behind the last building. The...

Check-in was done nicely early in the morning however be prepared that the rooms are really basic. Their breakfast is as basic with only hard boiled eggs and on our request for a fried egg we received a BIG NO. The next day we went to a resort nearby and enjoyed the BF much better. Yes the location is good...

I was really excited to stay here and get into a really lovely jungle stay. The location is perfect for the sunbears, proboscis monkeys, orangutans and the rainforest discovery centre (go it's excellent, see orangutans without paying the sanctuary price) and the price to stay is good too. It's not noisy so sleeping is easy. The surrounding area of your...

We stayed here one night before going on a trip to the Kinabatangan River. We liked it so much that we decided to come back for an additional two nights. For being in the middle of a jungle it has everything you need. The setting is beautiful and the pool is really fantastic. Good food too. The staff are so...

We had a lovely time here and enjoyed the company of other friendly guests. The resort is situated approximately 100m from Sepilok orangutan sanctuary and the Sun bear conservation Centre, ideal for visiting both and popping to and from them at feeding times. The breakfast was good and we ordered fantastic food from the restaurant on both days. The staff...

Bathroom clearly needed work ,the sink had chips here and there and the floor needed...

The hotel itself is a little tired, it is clean and conformable but if you are looking for somewhere to relax and spend a lot of time, there are probably nicer hotels in the area (of course budget dependent). The staff were incredibly attentive and helpful when it came to arranging trips. the rooms were quaint and fairly conformable. It...

The hotel is good for one night. Staff were helpful and friendly. It is quite dated but the room was comfortable. It is quite expensive for what you get and breakfast could be improved. The restaurant felt dark and dusty, needs a bit of tlc. We liked having a pool but the colour of it was a bit cloudy?!
