    What a great resort!”
    We were 2 couples travelling, stayed for 2 nights and wish it could be more! Friendly and always smiling and helpful staff, cosy small pool to chill out after hot day. Very nice chalets with indoor and outdoor bathroom, spotlessly clean. Orang utans sanctuary so close. Mouthwatering food, everything we had at reastaurant was delicious, especialy butter sauce prawns were out of this world! Strongly recommended!

    Such friendly helpful staff!”
    The resort is a little further away from the Sepilok sights than some but we walked to the orangutans & sunbears in ten mins and the RDC in about 20. Be aware that it’s pretty tricky to get Grabs after 5pm. Room was fine, although slightly run down - leaking air con etc. Comfy bed, nice shower, good breakfast and peaceful surroundings. Best thing though was the staff - especially Nicki in the restaurant who went out of her way to get to know all her customers. Keep it up :)

    Nice place to stay in Sepilok”
    A bit isolated place, but this is its main charm - right in the forest, fresh air and natural sounds! The only drawback is that the road may easily become flooded if it rains. Quite close to the sanctuaries. Amazing free breakfast and very friendly staff, but the restaurant is a bit overpriced. They want you to take your shoes off but the floors seemed not to have been mopped for a long time, otherwise it was a clean place. The dorm doors did not close, there was a latch that could close only from one side, so nobody could enter from the other (so if one person falls asleep you cannot enter). There was an outdoor pool, which was very nice!

    Fantastic bungalows in a good location”
    A series of bungalows roughly centres around a small lake and jungle area. The bungalows are extremely clean and comfortable with good views from most terraces. There is a restaurant with reasonably priced good quality food and a small plunge pool to cool off. It's located maybe 25 minutes walk from the Rainforest Discovery Centre and 15 mins walk from Sepilok Orangutan sanctuary. The only negative is patchy wifi coverage and slow speeds even from their restaurant but this is more of a Sepilok area in general issue and in no way detracts from it. I'd highly recommend staying here.

    We had a lovely stay. Visited Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center, did a night walk in the Rainforest Discovery Centre and went for a river cruise in Kinabatangan. I wish there had been some more informations about the activities in area at the hotel. The day we left we heard that there was a fire flie/glow worm trip, that would have been nice to know earlier.

    Simply magical!”
    We came to Sepilok to celebrate a major wedding anniversary, and we could not have chosen a more magical place. We booked the deluxe chalet, and it was perfect. Secluded location, serenely peaceful, and very comfortable. But if you are looking for 6-star pampered city luxury, look elsewhere, as this is a back-to-nature forest retreat. We even had a wifi interruption because a monkey came and took a bite out of the cable, but they soon got it fixed, and the bats roost dangling from the roof timbers of the front porch and the balcony, and do what bats do. The food was excellent - simple but filling buffet breakfast, with eggs cooked to order, and delicious local dishes served all day - western food also available. The staff were wonderful, polite and helpful in every way. The two fantastic animal sanctuaries (orang utans and sun bears) are a short walk away - I timed it as 11 minutes. These are unmissable - worth a full day at each. We had 2 days with the orang utans, and wanted more.

    Having a resort, but still have dorm rooms is ideal for individual travellers. Great atmosphere there as well with a lot of other like minded, nature loving backpackers. Nice to be in the middle of nature and the fact that it is on walking distance from the orangutans and rainforest discovery centre

    Beautiful getaway!”
    The resort is beautiful. Our chalet was wonderful too. Love the tropical rustic concept. Never thought the ‘bubu’ (fish trap) can be made as cool chandelier! I also think the attached outdoor shower is so awesome. We bring our 7 years old daughter, and were changed compulsory additional cost (RM50+) for her extra bed and breakfast, which we dont really mind coz the extra bed really make all of us extra comfortable. Breakfast was very basic and light. The restaurant is beautiful especially at night. The pool is small but the kids still love it. Extra info: Upon check-in, they will ask for RM200 deposit or credit card details.

    Great place to stay in Sepilok”
    We stayed in the dorm room and we ended up having the dorm room to ourselves which was nice. Room was nice and fairly clean, my only main complaint about the room was that I feel like there should be mosquito nets for the beds. Staff were friendly and the resort is in a good location, only a 10-15 min walk from the orangutan sanctuary. The breakfast was lovely and the food you can order at the restaurant is amazing! The veggie burger and margarita pizza was very tasty, and you must try the chocolate lava cake!

    Individualized bungalows were clean, quiet, even if some were far from the eating area. WiFi is only on the deck, but there are plenty of places to sit. Food was delicious, staff very helpful. Walking distance (20 mins) from orangutans and sun bears, 30 minutes to Rainforest center. Excellent place to stay unless you are going into town in Sandakan a lot, then it is at least a 40 minute drive each way. Enjoyed relaxing and being device free for awhile!

    Walking distance to Orangutans & Sunbears”
    Overall good place to stay, the staff are wonderful with a good restaurant. The property is sprawling in a controlled jungle setting, many plant, flowers & birds. Some rooms are a long ways from the reception so if mobility issue, ask for a closer room. Our room, very clean, had a nice deck & view of greenery & flowers, well used king bed, TV, no fridge,to get into shower/bathtub, had to go up 2 stairs so again could be an issue if limited mobility. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the orangutans & sunbears & about 45 min walk to the Rainforest Discovery Centre. We stayed 4 nights & probably 3 would have been enough.

    We absolutely loved our stay there and wished we would have stayed longer than just one night. Even though there’s not that much to do in Sepilok itself, the Resort itself would have been worth it to stay longer. Also the food was delicious& staff really helpful. Only one thing turned out to be a bad idea: wash our laundry there! We never paid as much as we paid there for our laundry (160RM!!). Otherwise everything was great.
