This is the best resort I've ever stayed at!! Open your door and be in the jungle! Very short walk to Sepilok Orang Utan and Sun Bear Sanctuaries. If you are looking for a great place to stay and you truly love nature, then this is the place for you!!!

Lovely forest hotel near the Sepilok forest reserve (where the orangutans live.) Great attentive staff and very welcoming. The Cafe' portion however could have been a little more generous in their portions and options. They were a bit tight fisted but pleasant enough.

I had the rest and quiet time needed. The best sleep I had after two weeks of traveling. The waiters were most attentive and accommodating. The natural environment with its timely rainfall gave me deep and restful sleep. Thank you.

    The room is really old, but it's clean. The staff wasn't helpful at all in telling us how to turn on the water heater. Or maybe the water heater doesn't work. We ended up taking cold showers. The front desk was helpful when we couldn't get a GRAB taxi to Sandakan. She phoned her friend and got us a taxi.

    Resort in the jungle”
    The resort is kept nice and clean, from the rooms to the pool. The grounds are nice to wander around and there is wildlife to see, including bats eating the insects hanging around the lights after dark. The food at the restaurant was okay, while the location cant be beat close to both the orangutan and sun bear centres.

    Close to Sun Bear abd Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center plus wonderful surrounding”
    The resort just a short walk to the above places and not far from the Rain Forest Recovery Center. We also easily visited Labuk Bay by the mini van, we just waited for the van in front of the Sepilok Cafetaria or car park. The van departed at 10.30 am; then brought us to Labuk bay, went to platform B; then we had lunch, continue watching video then to platform B before the van sent us back to Sepilok. On the way back the driver dropped us at the Rain Florest Discovery Center , we visited this place then we walked back to the resort. The resort is clean and quite well maintained; my only complaint was the bathroom slash was broken and should change. We love the landscape , a lot of birds flying and whispering. This is my best place to stay during my Sabah vocation trip.

    Nice stay. The rooms are a little retro, but large, clean, and comfortable. We had joining rooms that shared a balcony, which was perfect for our family. The resort is huge with raised walkways connecting all the buildings, which makes for walks to breakfast. One morning we saw a beautiful King Fisher on our way to the cafe. At night there are all sorts of jungle sounds. Great pool. Wonderful staff.

    Not a great stay, the location made it. However had problems with the stay, no WiFi, broken door to balcony, door faulty to room. Addressed issues with manager (Chinese lady) she wouldn’t have cared less. We had explained how we had chosen a private room as a treat and weren’t happy with the broken doors. Really unprofessional and we felt like she just wanted our money. Room was a fair size however needs some tlc especially to bathroom. I wouldn’t stay here again. Such a shame given the beautiful location!

    An aging resort with serene environment. I would say its great for its price. A short stay is recommended and it certainly would't hurt to stay longer as the location itself is already great. You got what you paid for.

    Total perfection ”
    We stayed in the deluxe room with balcony and it did not disappoint. The decor was slightly outdated but I think it made the room feel more charming. The bed was comfortable and there is was plenty of space. The water pressure in the shower is weak but it’s not really an issue. The restaurant is a lovely place to sit with decent, reasonably priced food. The walk between the swimming pool and the restaurant is spectacular, along a wooden bridge surrounded by the beautiful jungle. The swimming pool was lovely and quiet. The location is great, a stones throw from the orangutan and sun bear conservation centres. The hotel also offers other tours, we visited the proboscis monkeys and it was amazing. To get there from Kota Kinabalu we took a coach which drops you off on the main road, then it’s about a 40 minute walk to the hotel but if you tell the hotel in advance I think they can make arrangements to collect you once you get off the coach. All in all an amazing stay, I was very sad to leave!

    Great value - best pool in town”
    We had a lovely peaceful stay here - breakfast was good (and included) and the staff were friendly and keen to help out. The pool is a welcome oasis in the heat and humidity. Stumbling distance from the Orangutans and Sun Bears and the walk to breakfast is great! We spotted Stork Billed Kingfishers, Eagles and a host of tropical birds just walking down from the room. Renting a car is useful if here for more than a few days as Sepilok is quite isolated.

    Really nice rooms, great pool area, lovely surroundings and a perfect location to visit the orangutans and sun bears. Both 5 minute walk away. Also a good place to stay either side of a visit to the Kinabatangan river if you book your trip through Uncle Tans which is a km down the road. Only downside, restaurant is a bit hit and miss but not bad for the price.

    You get what you pay for. The resort is located within walking distance of the Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center, has a big wonderful park and a pool. The restaurant is ok (not bad, but not good) and had touristy prices. All in all a good resort for little money. We liked the stay and would choose it again.

    Basic room facilities. Very comfortable bed and nice hot shower. Outside balcony for relaxing. This lodge is perfectly situated for wild life enthusiasts, being a 5 minute walk from both the Orangutan Rehabilation Centre and Sun Bears centre and a 25 minute walk from the Rainforest Discovery Centre. The nearby Banana Cafe has plenty of choces for cheap evening meals and complimentary basic breakfast is provided here. Staff on both the reception desk and in the restaurant were very nice & helpful. There is an outdoor swimming pool for daytime use. This lodge is a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport (cost 40 ringit)

    Lovely”
    Owner started this some 25 yrs ago by digging massive ponds and planting trees. It has evolved to a lovely garden with an extensive foot bridge system with bridges over the ponds. Lots of wildlife. Bonus is the pool big enough for laps. Also kiddie pool with slide. We choose balcony room with great view over the garden. AC works great. Wifi works better than hotels in KK! Room 38 is a corner room so more Windows. Forget the TV- never turned it on. Friendly staff. Breakfast is fair. Other meals are very good, but not generous on portions. There is a more swank place up the street with a good restaurant with prices to match (good Caesar salad). Worth the splurge of25$ for 2!! SPR may not be the top end but I would not stay anywhere else in Sipolok. ORC and Sunbear center are 5 min walk. RDC is a it further (20min) with a great canopy walk and garden. Go early. ORC - you will fall in love....

    Shame I wasn't staying longer as large grounds with swimming pool (although I believe there was a charge for this)but would have happily chilled there for a day! Not much else in Sepilok other than tourist attractions and one cool local food seller. No minimarts so only other option for food is in resort itself. Helpful and friendly staff too.

    The resort is wonderful and the gardens very well kept. The walls though are paper thin so if you want to get a good nights sleep take earplugs as we heard next doors TV as if we were in the same room.The rooms are spotless but no soap is supplied.The restaurant food was lovely although the coffee was cold as it is made early then put in an urn.When we complained though it was changed immediately wiithout fuss.
