It was a nice place to stay and relax and all the staff were friendly, helpful, mellow, and understanding. Very easy access to all the attractions of Sepilok! One thing that could be improved is that our 4-person dorm room had only 1 key... which meant that every time you wanted to go in or out (without your roommates around) you needed to stop by the front desk or restaurant... if you forgot something, you needed to go back and forth again.

A hotel resort with chalets and then separate Labuk B&B longhouse, which consists of double rooms and dorms (more or less the same as the double rooms). Obvious that facilities are there for the chalet guest. The grounds are beautiful, the pool (rather pond) is a nice touch, though full of algae and has no circulation system. Only 1 showet and 1 toilet for all dorm guests. If you are on a tight budget, beware that restaurant caters to chalet guests, no low budget options. Dorms good value.

Great Staff! Had a wonderful time there. No hot water in the budget lodge. Excellent breakfast. The pool is 80 cm deep. ahahah it's basically a pond with no fish but feels good.


Great location if you would like to stay within walking distance to the Orangutang Sanctuary, Sun Bear Centre and Rainforest Discovery Centre. Staff are also very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a private room with ensuite in the longhouse (rather than the more expensive cabins) and felt that it was still quite expensive for what was offered. The bonus is that you get a buffet breakfast complete with cereal, toast, fruit, coffee/tea and eggs of your choice.
