If you're stopping off to visit the orangutan sanctuary, and want to stay nearby, I can't imagine there's a better place than this. Professional, friendly check in, great bungalow/cabin in an almost rain-forest setting, plenty of places to walk around, and a most agreeable restaurant...More
We stayed 2 nights here, which was just the right length for a relaxed pace visit.
5 minutes walk from the Orangutan & Sun Bear Centres.
Setting is beautiful. The hotel seems to bend around and intergrate the tropical trees and plants, rather than being...More
We stayed here for two nights,and just for tranquility and scenery could have done longer. Rooms very comfortable with air con and fans, shower and sinks, all bath accessories provided which was great. Tea and coffee also in rooms. Extremely clean inside and outside. Our...More
Decided to stay here last minute as it was the sister resort to Lankayan Island and we were returning from there and wanted to go to the Orang Utan Sanctuary (with us 5mins walk). Oh how we wished we had more time, we wanted to...More

We went in April/May but as has been suggested just search for the rainy season - remember it is a rainforest and just because you are out of the rainy season doesn't preclude really heravy thunderstorms and rain (I mean REALLY heavy!).
Within Sepilok you will see the orangutans through glass at the outdoor nursery and then there's the feeding platform where you can't necessarily guarantee sightings as this is for the more independent orangutans.
We were lucky enough to see a wild alpha male close up in Sepilok as they will sometimes come into the centre.
Nothing beats seeing orangutans in the wild (Kinerbatangan River at the Bilit Rainforest Lodge) but with nature it's just a matter of waiting, keeping your eyes open and a bit of luck - which we had aplenty with sightings of 8 orangutans in the wild.

I'd recommend staying longer in Langkawi (it's beautiful) than staying for 4 nights in Sepilok - there's not much to do in Sepilok so you do it in a day/maximum 2. Or we went to Perhentian Islands too if you can get over... More
