          Hi! Can I ask if this resort includes food? I am looking at a package of 3 days and 2 nights, however, if you have to buy food on top then it may be quite an expensive day! Can anyone tell me what kind of food is served (I don't eat fish!) Thank you!

How far is this from the Sepilok Orangutan resort and the cost / mode of travel to these places? 3. Are there lots of kids activities / things to do? 4. Room options? Many thanks Siddhant

          You need to take a boat from Semporna for about 45 minutes. From Sepilok is quite far. Please be aware that most of the guests are Chinese and therefore food is mainly chinese.

          Beach Chalet Vs Beach Villa ? - anyone has any input, which is a better option for my parents. I and my siblings will be staying at the garden deluxe but we want to make the villa / beach chalet as our main family chill out place during the day. (chit chat, gather, etc) - On the other hand, the jacuzzi of villa is located at the back so, can't use it while looking at the ocean. And the jacuzzi in the beach chalet looks cleaner in the picture compared to the villa. - but beach chalet does not have a dining table where we can play cards etc to hangout like beach villa. - villa is nearer to the jungle so i am afraid they might have more mosquitoes. - which is better to snorkel.. beach chalet (east beach) or villa (west beach). WOuld appreciate the help as which is a better choice. As I read in the room tips that beach chalet is most value and better location than villa. (But why is it villa is more expensive?)
