Paradise on the River
This lodge is amazing, with staff that are there for your every need. The trips in the boats up and down the river were amazing with such fantastic wildlife and nature to be seen. the food was good, and there was always plenty. The resort itself is a bit "off the grid" with wifi only in the reception area. but the natural beauty will have you forgetting there is a world out there that you are no longer connected to.

Outstanding
The people, the location, the sounds and the overall experience.
Don't waste your time deliberating over which lodge to stay at, with the exception of the uber expensive one they're all very similar. However, I strongly advise you choose proboscis lodge as the staff are simply outstanding. Fendy our guide was the highlight of our 2 week travels through Borneo, he was exceptional, brilliant at spotting animals and generally very likeable. All the staff are so intent on making you enjoy yourself, they offer a rarely found genuine desire to make sure you're happy. If you've been salavating over Masai Mara type ultra luxurious lodges then spend 20 times the cash and go there instead. Any negative reviews of this Proboscis Lodge are clearly the work of people who 'just didn't get it'. GO!!

great boat tours
the animals we saw, the food and staff
our stay the sukau proboscis lodge was pleasant, lovely staff and boat tour, we saw elephants and proboscis monkeys wild orang-utans, croc's and many birds. The lodge its self is odd a huge bar and dining area but it was empty. it was expensive but not grand but not poor. If it was cheaper you would feel very happy with the place, lovely food huge amounts, and yes there is no wifi, its the jungle!

Great place for wildlife adventures
Amazing location, superb food and excellent Boatmen
Could not have asked for a better place to stay in Sukau. The boatman here is amazing..Spotted wild animals, and reptiles that were missed by most other navigators. Cannot recommend this place more. Yes, the place does not have a TV or Wifi which could have made this place perfect, but you dont come to Sukau for TV/Wifi. Amazing place. You wont regret it

For a wildlife hotel lodge, very nice
A/C and running water in the rooms!, good food
Having stayed at a home stay the previous few days in Sukau without running water or even a fan, this was heaven. That said, it is in Sukau, fabulous for wildlife but nothing else, so they did a great job creating such a nice, modern place. The food is pretty good, too, and they even have cokes and beer available! We didn't use their boat guide, but given the area, you will have to see great wildlife here (we saw proboscis and macaque monkeys, along with orangutans and elephants in the wild, and lots of birds etc), which is the only reason anyone comes to Sukau. It's a couple of hours from Sandakan, on the river, and isn't for people who think it's a nice day trip to a zoo (go to Sepilok -- they do good work, it's close in, and you can see the orangs up close, but it's not the wild), but it's fantastic for people who appreciate truly wild habitat and respect the creatures living there.

Spacious cabins with balcony, nice resort
Location in the jungle near the river; very good food
We enjoyed the river cruises; would have liked to stay one more night. Lots of wildlife, but we did not see elephants.

Nice view
Location on the river
The staff are very friendly. The food is excellent, and the 1 day we were the only guests, we were treated like royalty, with more-than-enough food! The boat trips were also enjoyable.
