Sukau Rainforest Lodge | Kinabatangan River

Sukau Rainforest Lodge is the most luxurious eco-lodge in Sukau, in the Kinabatangan area of Sabah, Borneo.

Sukau Rainforest Lodge has 20 Superior Rooms and Villas - all of which are air conditioned (with energy saving systems).

Superior Rooms are spacious and have a sofa. Villas were constructed in 2017 and are beautiful, by far the best accommodation available in Sukau.

All activities including river trips are included in our packages. At night the boardwalks are subtly lit and make for great evening strolling.

The restaurant is very nice at Sukau Rainforest Lodge, with a great riverside location.

The lodge is part of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection of eco-lodges. The BBC filmed here and the lodge was blessed by a visit from David Attenborough.

The lodge takes the eco concept very seriously and founder Albert Teo is one of the main proponents of eco tourism in Borneo.

It's certainly not unknown to see orang-utans close to the resort - some of our customers have been lucky to see orang-utans right by their accommodation.

Tabin Wildlife Resort | Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Tabin Wildlife Reserve was established in 1984 in order to help preserve the wildlife of Borneo in a large area of lowland dipterocarp forest.

Tabin is home to the three largest mammal species in Borneo - the Bornean Elepant, the Bornean Rhino and the Tembadau (a form of ox).

There are also 9 species of primate present, including a small number of orang-utans. Clouded leopards are the main predator, although far less commonly seen than civet cats and leopard cats.

Tabin Wildlife Reserve offers a number of activities including 4WD safaris, bird-watching excursions, jungle trekking, visits to the Lipad  Mud Volcano and two fantastic observation towers.

Accommodation at Tabin Wildlife Reserve consists of 20 free standing chalets. They are simple but comfortable enough with en-suite bathrooms, balconies and ceiling fans (no air-con).

Tabin is a great alternative to staying at Borneo Rainforest Lodge in the Danum Valley, which is often fully booked and also weighs on the budget.

Tabin is reached from Lahad Datu in about 45 minutes along sealed an gravel roads. More often we actually combine a stay at Tabin with a visit to Sukau and the Kinabatangan River area. This means a boat and road journey from Sukau to Tabin.
