A stay at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge is a truly special experience. Isolated in the jungle amidst a 130 million year old primary rainforest, with no other development or sign of (human) life nearby, life slows to a different pace once you arrive. The lodge itself offers a comfortable open-air climate to enjoy views of the river from your dining table as monkeys jump from tree to tree nearby. From the lodge, elevated walkways lead guests to well-kept, and rustic but well sealed private cabins (some with private hot tubs, some without). Amenities are sparse and simple, but perfectly adequate, as the large majority of guests staying here will likely be out and about all day, on jungle treks, river tubing rides, canopy walks, and night rides with the lodge's excellent, knowledgeable guides. Each buffet meal at the lodge offers plenty of variety both for carnivores and vegetarians. We stayed 4 days and wish it was longer, as the worries of modern living melted away and we were able to spend the days enjoying walks among the humbling ancient trees and staggering variety of animal life all around us. Truly a back-to-basics escape for those looking to reconnect with the natural world.
