Me and my boyfriend arrived here for a one night stay and were immediately impressed with the gorgeous setting of the resort. It's set around a large lake in the middle. We were lunch that our cabin also overlooked the lake from a lovely large wooden terrace with a hammock. The cabin was bright, modern and very comfortable. I appreciated...

Great location, staff, service, food and environment. We loved this little gem of a place. It is literally within 5 minutes walking distance from Sun bear and orangutan rehabilitation centres and Rainforest Discovery centre is just a tad further. If I could suggest something it would be that the resort would have it's own tour operators for excursions in the...

We were came to the lodge with a bit of trepidation after staying on a lovely resort for the past three days. The lodge exceeded our expectations. The rooms had AC and were really lovely. The bathroom is only separated from the bedroom by a divider, so if you are not sharing with someone that you know well, beware. The...

Such a great find. Beautiful bungalows with modern bathrooms. Wonderful setting on a lake. Walking distance to discovery centre and orangutan sanctuary. Staff helpful and food delicious. No negatives. Great value for money. I would recommend for families or couples. A few days is enough in Sepilok as all attractions can be seen within a day.

We really enjoyed our two days, the cabins are lovely with a quiet terrace with a hammock to relax in. We did pack a lot in to our main day there. We visited the orangutans for the first feeding at 10am. Get there early and walk to the main platform as when we got there about 45 mins before the...

This place is fabulous, the photos on the website don't do it justice, it's beautiful. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, and spacious both inside and outside on your own verandah overlooking the lake. The staff are lovely and very welcoming.

We asked to spend an extra night at Sepilok on our tour so we could do an afternoon feeding at the Orangutan center. We were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the resort was. Picturesque setting of the cabins around the lake and beautiful tropical gardens. Tastefully appointed rooms with all the amenities required. Lovely restaurant and deck area to enjoy...

This place is magical... Pure luxury set within nature on a lake. We had a long journey but felt instantly relaxed here. Two minutes from the orangutan and sun bear sanctuaries it is perfectly located. I loved lying on the day beds listening to the noises of nature along with their great chilled out play list. The lemon grass tea...
