Recommend this hotel as a relaxing place to stay to visit the sun bear sanctuary and the organutan rehabilitation centre as both are a 5 minute walk away It has a pool and attractive grounds to walk to the restaurant Food was very tasty although limited to the usual dishes on all resurant menus i.e. Noodles , rice , sweet...

We stayed here one night before going on a trip to the Kinabatangan River. We liked it so much that we decided to come back for an additional two nights. For being in the middle of a jungle it has everything you need. The setting is beautiful and the pool is really fantastic. Good food too. The staff are so...

We had a lovely time here and enjoyed the company of other friendly guests. The resort is situated approximately 100m from Sepilok orangutan sanctuary and the Sun bear conservation Centre, ideal for visiting both and popping to and from them at feeding times. The breakfast was good and we ordered fantastic food from the restaurant on both days. The staff...

We had three days stay at Sepilok Jungle Resort.The room was rather modest and dated and also besides towels and liquid soap from the dispenser(towels were rather worn out),toileteries weren't included.We did not know this till we got there,good thing that we brought our toothbrushes. Bathroom clearly needed work ,the sink had chips here and there and the floor needed...

The hotel itself is a little tired, it is clean and conformable but if you are looking for somewhere to relax and spend a lot of time, there are probably nicer hotels in the area (of course budget dependent). The staff were incredibly attentive and helpful when it came to arranging trips. the rooms were quaint and fairly conformable. It...

The hotel is good for one night. Staff were helpful and friendly. It is quite dated but the room was comfortable. It is quite expensive for what you get and breakfast could be improved. The restaurant felt dark and dusty, needs a bit of tlc. We liked having a pool but the colour of it was a bit cloudy?!

The Jungle Resort may have seen better days, but the location is great, the rooms are clean, and staff is courteous and helpful. There aren't a lot of choices for hotels within walking distance of the Orangatan Sanctuary and the Sun Bear Sanctuary, and I'd say from what we saw this one was in the middle. There is another property...

I stayed here as part of a group tour. We stayed in the dorm rooms. They were very basic. The shared bathroom facilities were poor with the showers hardly producing any water pressure (probably the worst I had experienced in borneo). The breakfast included was basic but sufficient. We ate at the restaurant which also had a reasonable menu. A...

This is a basic resort but more than adequate. I was travelling with my daughter and even though we booked months in advance they gave us a room with a queen bed when I had asked for 2 singles. I was disappointed with this but then realised they had a large school group staying at the same time who would...

The staff were wonderful and nice and the grounds of the resort were beautiful and in the jungle. As an added bonus it was quite close to the Orangutan Sanctuary. The rooms were rather dated, but the included breakfast was good. The staff went out of their way to help us out.
