Our 2 night stay here was memorable. The rooms are simple but comfortable, the food superb- the banana pancakes are to die for! Jason and Gert, the owners, are passionate about the environment and we learned so much about the rainforest and its demise. We were impressed by our guide's, Bonbon, knowledge and keen eyesight on the river cruises. I...

The Last Frontier Boutique Resort is an amazing place. Run by Gert and Jason who are fantastic hosts. I stayed in October last year with my parents (both in their 70s)- can't believe I forgo to review then. Gert picked us up from our resort in Sepilok and drove us there (about two hours). It's on the valley ridge up...

The Last Frontier Resort is a lovely place located on top of a hill. It takes you a little climb to get there, but then you are rewarded with a great view and an abundance of nature that surrounds you. The rooms are very cosy and clean and the food is simply delicious. You can spot a lot of wild...

We stayed here in November, and what an amazing experience it was! Gert and Jason made sure we were well looked after: The food was delicious (those pancakes!) and the accommodation was really comfortable, we even had jungle views from our bedroom window. What will always remain with us was the passion these guys have for the rainforest around them....

Located on top of a hill in the middle of rainforest, you are bound to encounter wildlife. There are several orangutans roaming around the area which is pretty unique. You may or may not see them though. At night a lot of different moths and bats come out, some of which are beautiful. There is the occasional boar that comes...

We had a wonderful few days at Last Frontier. It is situated apart from all the other lodges in the area on top of the hill, which is great for trekking (where we saw an orang-utan). The rooms are nice, as is the restaurant. The highlight (other than the remote location) is the food. Jason is great cook and spoils...
