Sepilok Nature Resort
The orangutan are national treasures and so is sepilok nature resort. Either the people of Borneo or the Malaysian government should buy back this wonderful resort from the foreign owners. This place is something the Malaysian people should be proud of
Best Resort I've Ever Been To”
The Nature Resort should be your only choice. We stayed elsewhere on our way back through Sepilok after our river trip after booking on advance. We wish we hadn't. From the staff which was super nice and friendly from the food and bev guys and gals, to the check in and check out, they were always smoking and helpful. The main lodge area, wow. It's on a lake so there are some bugs, but it's not dirty or gross, it's more sublime than anything else. The surroundings are spectacularly gorgeous. Our bungalow was on the river literally right next to the orangutan sanctuary. I wish I could live here it was so amazing!! Again, it's in the jungle. We had a gecko on our bed when we got back from dinner, one we had never seen before! Best place ever.
Beautiful location next door to sepilok urangutan centre”
We enjoyed our stay at Sepilok, nice setting and very close to the sepilok centre . wifi only available near reception.
Awesome chalet and surroundings. ”
Very nice place..
Costs more than other options, but absolutely worth it!”
It's a bit expensive compared to other deals in the area, but it's worth every bit! The staff is super friendly, the rooms are huge, comfortable and clean, the bed is superb and the food was amazing! Also, it's a very short walk to the Orangutan Sanctuary (closest accommodation actually). I would recommend this to anyone and would stay there again without hesitation!
Exceeded our expectations ”
In short we loved it. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Restaurant food was good and reasonably priced. The jungle setting was incredible. We spotted an orangutan in a palm tree while sipping on a drink in the restaurant after our days activities. The large open air restaurant and sitting area was very nice. Our room was spacious with high ceiling, wood floors, large bathroom, mini fridge, very comfortable bed, sitting chairs. From the veranda we sat and listened to the sounds of the jungle at night. The only negative was that there was maintenance /renovation of some of the bungalows ongoing at the time of our visit and the constant movement of workers in front of our bungalow distracted from the experience. Workers even were on our veranda taking the bench and table away to be refinished. The staff promptly moved us to another room when we complained.
Living with the animal kingdom”
This resort is the epicenter of Malaysian jungle life and a most encouraging effort to save its most precious inhabitants ! Just a few minutes away are the Orang utan and Sun Bear conservation centers which are jaw dropping opportunities to view these beautiful animals as they are supported to re-enter the homes they were originally taken from... The resort is also a place to experience wildlife... we had an orang utan visit us on our balcony and saw a hornbill fly by at the same time !!! The eating experience was a perfect mix of classic Malaysian cuisine and western comfort foods - all prepared beautifully and delivered by the smiling and attentive staff. Our bungalow was a level of convenience and simple elegance we rarely find - with a most exceptional shower experience. We could not have been any happier with the value Sepilok Nature Resort afforded.
Stayed for 3D2N - absolutely wonderful trip. The staff were well informed and generous with their knowledge. And really good fun. Incredible ability to spot wildlife too which the jungle was full of. I learnt a lot from the guides and enjoyed a cold beer or two at the lodge. Very slick organisation and really nice lodging. The new villas look pretty special! Highly recommend.
Location of the hotel was excellent. Less than 5 minutes walk to Orang Utan Centre, Rainforest Discovery Center & SunBear Conservation Centre. Resort deals doesn't come with breakfast, hence it was ala-carte. We had some meals at the resort restaurant and it was delicious. Food was served in 10 minutes even during peak hours. The rooms were spacious (too much space in-fact as the top attic was just sofas, fridge & tables. Anyway, we liked it. The rooms were clean, I can see that the resort put in lots of effort in ensuring that the furnitures are all coloured themed. Even the television was painted orange. Good selections of bathroom amenities. Staffs were friendly and for the price I have paid, this hotel deserved 5 stars rating. Will definitely return to this hotel as it is well tucked in the nature. Good to wake up to the sound of hornbills and macques. Downside, 30 minutes drive to Sandakan town though.
The whole resort is simply beautiful. The bungalows are stunning and the restaraunt/common areas are very well designed. The staff were always smiling and helpful which makes a big difference. We did a few tours with Sonny as our guide and he helped to make it a special experience with his knowledge and attitude. The location is spot on. next door to the orangutan and sun bear sanctuarys, it was simply a case of walking out the gates and heading down the road. The food was always nicely presented and tasted great, portions were a good size.
Great location. Very nice hotel with respect of the environment. The nature there is even nicer than around. Many nice vegetation and fauna.
