Sukau Rainforest Lodge
This outstanding eco-lodge offers access to Borneo’s wildlife-rich rainforests. You’ll see the region’s incredible species, learn about the conservation programs in place, and stay in perfect comfort while enjoying wonderful views over the Kinabatangan River.
Why We Love It
The riverboat cruise is fantastic, and you immediately begin to get a handle on Borneo’s astonishing biodiversity with orangutans, crocodiles, and, if you’re very lucky, the Borneo pygmy elephant looking back at you.
Sometimes you’ll not need to travel very far at all for a wildlife encounter. Monkeys and bright birdlife often come close to the villas for you to watch them from the comfort of your terrace.
In Sabah, Borneo, the Sukau Rainforest Lodge sits on the banks of the Kinabatangan River. One of Borneo’s most important waterways, it’s the ideal location from which to see the orangutans and explore the surrounding rainforest.
The villas come with en-suite bathrooms and space to relax, both inside and on your private deck. Built mostly from wood the villa’s interior is warm while the indigenous artworks on the wall and headboard add eye-catching accents.
You’ll find refreshments spread throughout the lodge, with the main Melapi Restaurant offering delicious Malaysian and tropical cuisine. The Gecko Lounge, meanwhile, is the perfect place to sit down with an animal-spotting book and a tea between excursions into the jungle.
WHY IS THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
Its sustainability ethos has seen it rated as one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World and, best of all, its integrity doesn’t impact the shower temps.
The local animal life also seems very comfortable about coming close to the lodge. Expect an impromptu monkey spotting from your restaurant table or while taking a refreshing swim in the pool.
