ACCOMMODATION IN SABAH
BORNEO RAINFOREST LODGE
The Lodge has been designed by naturalists, built with local materials and located in a magnificent setting beside the Danum River in Sabah's largest protected lowland forest. It is a wildlife experience in a remote primary rainforest, combining comfort, privacy and good food with high quality natural history interpretation. The accommodation has been designed along the lines of traditional Dusun dwellings linked with the lodge by an attractive walkway. All buildings have been constructed from local products, and power is generated on site. The chalets feature a natural ventilation system, solar heated hot water for showers and hot tubs.
Standard Chalets - Jungle View - Enjoy the comfort of relaxing and rejuvenating break, all including an outdoor deck where you may contemplate the breathtaking panoramic view of the rainforest.
The chalets accommodate two to three people each. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom and hot shower. Fans keep you cool, while verandahs overlook the rainforest (with so much to do outside, the only reason to venture indoors is to sleep).
Deluxe rooms were opened in 2007, and offer a fabulous alternative to your stay in the jungle. Deluxe Chalets - River View - feature a private outdoor tub right at your own private balcony where you can have a relaxing soak after a day of trekking. Spectacularly set amongst the rainforest, the River View chalets feature a magnificent view of nature's abundance. The chalet also features an outdoor bathtub and deck chairs overlooking the rainforest.
Deluxe Chalet - River View (day bed) - limited to only 4 chalets. This beautiful day bed set just outside the balcony offers a majestic view of the river and the rainforest.
Deluxe Chalet - Jungle View - Spacious chalet with outdoor tub and deck chairs offers a relaxing atmosphere and at the same time provides you with an appreciation of the endless beauty of the nature. (Those traveling with children may opt for this chalet.)
A bare minimum of trees have have been cut so that nature is never more than a few metres away. More than 275 species of birds and 110 species of mammals, including Asian elephant, orang-utan, Sumatran rhinoceros, deer Bornean gibbons, bearded pigs, flying squirrel, Rhinoceros hornbill and Bulwar's pheasant, have been found in the area.
