“The green credentials of this lodge are impressive. It goes to great lengths to maintain harmony with the rainforest, even reducing light and sound so as not to bother the wildlife. The rooms and villas come with en suites with solar-powered hot showers. Guests can stroll right from the room into the jungle on an elevated boardwalk, stopping to see wildlife and tropical plants at every turn.”
Perched on the banks of Borneo’s Kinabatangan River and surrounded by tropical rainforest, the Sukau Rainforest Lodge offers comfort and luxury while maintaining its strict sustainability credentials. This charming eco-lodge has the distinction of being one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World.
There are 20 rooms and 20 villas set on stilts, each with air-conditioning and en suites with solar-powered hot showers. The larger villas have private balconies overlooking the forest or river.
Choose from an abundance of activities, including tracking orangutans and Borneo pygmy elephants, birdwatching tours, river and 4WD safari tours, jungle and waterfall treks, and canopy walks.
You don’t need to leave the resort to witness the stunning wildlife either. Watch monkeys swinging through the trees while eating on the deck of Melapi restaurant, see tropical birds flitting through the canopy from the swimming pool, and listen to the rainforest night symphony while sipping a cocktail in the bar.
