very rustic accommodation that sways when anyone rolls over in bed, showers had feeble water pressure and was over toilet. Servicing of rooms non existent unless you chased for it, breakfast, lunch and dinner is buffet.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at this lodge as part of a short tour for 2 nights. Only accessible by boat we found the lodge to be a calm retreat to relax in and enjoy the wildlife. The beds were pretty comfy and loved the morning wake up calls from the mischievous monkeys. We also had some room pets, Freddie...

We booked a trpadeal package which we didn't realise was truly budget. Our mistake. Our room had a very hard bed and pillows, a shower that had no pressure. Our first river cruise was in the pouring rain - not fun. We had hours of free time without anything to do. Most cruises were the same - crocodiles, proboscis monkeys...

The retreat on the banks of the Kinabatangan River is a must place to visit to see the Sabah wildlife in the wild. The lodge is very neat and tidy, the rooms very clean all accessed by a raised walkway to each lodge through a maze of trees and palms. Hardly a sound can be heard other than the birds,...

Clean, comfortable rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Expert river guides. This is the place to easily see wildlife in Borneo. Morning and evening river cruises will deliver more monkeys than you can poke a stick at, lots of birds from Kingfisher to Hornbill's and if you are lucky crocodiles and Pygmy Elephant. Our guide was Mus and what a...

Bilit is a really wonderful jungle area in Sabah. We booked the Bilit Adventure Lodge through Sepilok Tropical Wildlife Adventures, and they were great to work with, highly recommended. They let us customize our trip and helped accommodate my allergy to shellfish. The lodge is not fancy, but had a lovely large eating area right on the river, that was...

This jungle retreat is miles from anywhere, no traffic noise just the sounds of the forest. The stay at the lodge was part of a 4 day tour with Amazing Borneo Tours. Abdul, our guide pointed out animals in the jungle that we missed. We travelled up and down the Kinabatangan River spotting wildlife. The lodge is a single story...

Bilit Adventure Lodge was our designated jungle lodge on a 2 night, 3 day tour with Borneo Sandakan Backpackers (link below). It was a wonderful surprise to arrive at our very own spacious, airconditioned bedroom, with all the trimmings, as opposed to the hostel conditions we were expecting. Great food, great service from the staff, clean and right in the...
