Beautiful Facility, Good Value”
Sepilok Forest Edge is a beautiful facility located within minutes of the major attractions of Sepilok. My wife and I stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. My only complaint is the element of having a dorm within the resort. While I understand the need to include the budget traveler in your business model, it is nonetheless frustrating when the guests without a private room overtake the common areas and feel the need to turn them into their own wifi cafe's - complete with speakerphone cell calls. The price of private rooms is considerably higher than that of the dorm accommodations and I feel as though the use of facilities (incl. breakfast) is disproportionately swayed towards those staying in the cheaper accommodations. While I would stay at Sepilok Forest Edge Resort again, I would do so with a more realistic set of expectations for the facility and its amenities.

We had a room for 4, very private, lovely view from balcony. Room/bathroom smell of mould/damp - that was our only negative. Breakfast ok but need to advertise that eggs/omelette available. Check how long eggs boiled as ours were barely cooked.

Great place! ”
Very nice breakfast, great staff, good food, just don't walk down the side road that its on, will be a lot longer than you think. It's a few miles at least! Close to Orangutan centre and sun bears which is very handy!! Lovely little place, and a pool too...

Very good”
Conveniently a 15 mins walk to the SORC. Chalets nicely laid out. Most staff are happy and willing to help etc. The food is so-so and pricey (e.g. same chicken pieces in all dishes - just the (canned?) sauce changes).

Relaxing place in beautiful setting and with amazi”
The resort is situated in a quiet area near a jungle trail and 10 minutes walk from the Orangutan Rehabilitation centre. The setting is beautiful and very green. Cottages are very nice and located in forested area. Open rain showers available in addition to the usual bathroom add to the exotic feel. The staff is fantastic. Prior to our arrival they arranged our trip to the River Kinabatangan, which was a great experience. Upon arrival and during our stay they did everything to make us feel comfortable. They are super friendly and eagerly engage in conversations. This goes both for receptionists and the restaurant crew. The food in the restaurant is good, although a little bit overpriced for Malaysian standards. It would be nice if they could serve food earlier than from noon, if you arrive earlier than that (and are not eligible for breakfast yet), you have to wait till noon to be able to order anything. In terms of breakfast, it is more budget hotel style, nothing fancy but decent. Toasts, sausages, jams, fresh fruit and milk with cereals are served. There is a huge terrace with deck chairs where you can relax. There is also a swimming pool although it is very small and shallow. It would be nice if they could invest into a bigger one. Also we had a problem with a leaking A/C in our cottage house and despite reporting it at noon, although the engineer claimed it has been fixed, it was not, therefore we were forced to move to another cottage around 11pm when we found out the A/C is still leaking. This is one area where there could be improvement. Finally, be prepared that, since it is in a forested area, you might encounter small lizards and some insects in the cottage rooms. Overall, we had a great stay and would visit again if we come to Sepilok. Keep up the great work!

What a Real Treat!”
This place feels more like a real resort than a backpacker place. the pool was perfect for the afternoons in-between visiting the Urang-Utangs and Sun Bears. The breakfasts are the best I've had my whole 3 months in Malaysia, the staff are all young and there seems to be no manager but they still run the place as a 5 star resort! Aircon would of been perfect if there was any but made do with fan.
