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.
Travel tip: Check the transportation from Sandakan to Sukau before arrival; it can get expensive.

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.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Ask early about a trip to see the elephants, as one has to leave a bit earlier than the scheduled trips.

Standard jungle hotel but poor management

friendly staff
Nice location but poor rooms and management. Rooms are large but dark. Once we were there (access is by the hotel-owned canoe) management asked for the double of the rate already paid to allow our two kids to stay in the same room! The jungle safari was OK.

No nos sentimos a gusto

La amabilidad del personal
El director no nos trató nada bien. Contratamos de la opción de un pack de 3 días 2 noches, 3 noches. No quiso incluir los servicios de paseo en bote para el día añadido(nosotros entendemos que si el precio es el mismo, el servicio también debe serlo). Al estar en la otra orilla de la carretera, si no se puede hacer el paseo en bote, te quedas aislado.

Sollte man auf jeden Fall erleben!

Direkt am Fluß, absolute Ruhe, mitten in der Natur!
Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt, endlich Ruhe und Abgelegenheit. Personal ist sehr freundlich, die Bungalows sind zweckmäßig eingerichtet und liegen direkt am Fluss. Auf der Bootstour haben wir sehr viele Nasenaffen und einen Elefanten gesehen. Individuelle Anreise war sehr kompliziert, da der Pier / Jetty kaum zu finden war und dann musste die Lodge angerufen werden um den Bootstransfer zur Lodge in die Wege zu leiten, ging dann aber doch noch recht fix! Gerne wieder!
