2D1N Package (ex-Sukau)
Stayed 3 nights in January 2017
great location”
Brilliant location, great tours/river trips & the staff were so very helpful despite it being low season..... & the food was great despite us being the only people staying there. But the facilities were a bit shabby & it's in desperate need of some TLC. Simple rooms, could do with update & decoration

Great location”
The chalets were well maintained and had private views of the extensive grounds. Good walks around the property. The big dissapointment was dinner being charged in US$ so aout four times the price of a good Malaysian restaurant. We had dinner at a cafe down the road.

fantastic place”
Staff was very friendly and the food was great. The surroundings are armazing. If You bring Your own car You just have to live it by the river and You are then taken by boat to the hotel which we found really nice.

3D2N does NOT include transportation ”
Be aware that the 3D2N package does NOT include transportation to/from the lodge. This is significant as the lodge is across the river from Sukau, and you must take a boat from a jetty that is a ways away from the village. We paid 630 RM additional for transportation, although cheaper options are available if you can tolerate the hassle. We were also the only guests at the lodge,which can be good or bad. Bathrooms could use improvement, but otherwise not a bad place. Food was great, river guide was great. Just expected more from the price we ended up paying, since Greenview was much cheaper.

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!
