The chalet was very comfortable and you felt as if you were living in the rain forest, beautiful grounds. The hotel could do with a bit of updating and would be lovely to have a pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights there though, food good, cocktails average. Ideal location for orangutans and sun bears.

Made up so 23 lodge houses in the Borneo rainforest. We were in number 22 one of the furthest away from the main building. I loved being here as you felt part of nature. Just be careful with the wooden board walk as some areas are even due to the rainforest’s tree roots intertwining the boards. We were luck to have visits from orangutans twice while we were there. The first experience had the orangutang crossing the bridge near our lodge approximately 20 metres away. That made my holiday!
