Amazing location. Right in the middle of the jungle, really near to orangutan sanctuary. Helpful staff - organized river cruise for us and free shuttle to sepilok. Would stay here again.

A bit out of the way but they provide a free shuttle and it is an awesome setting, lots of hammocks to laze about it when you're not seeing the orangutans and sun bears. Good food too that isnt' too expensive, definitely recommend this place.


This is a great retreat close to Sepilok. Relaxing place with plenty of hammocks and chilled areas. Staff really helpful and the transfers in and out of key attractions are a big plus.


Great spot in jungle mixed with palm trees. We had a ridge hut by ourselves up on the hill with very comfortable bed & incredible views down through the jungle to the river & up the other side from the little verandah. Backpackers stayed in a longhouse. Location is a few k's from Sepilok, but they drop people off there at 9am & pick up at 4pm. Staff were kind enough to carry my bag up the hill for me.
