Malaysian Borneo

Deep within primary rainforest in Sabah’s Danum Valley, the Borneo Rainforest Lodge provides an off-the-beaten-track experience with a luxury touch. This jungle escape offers one of the best wildlife experiences in Borneo, with over 340 species of birds and 120 species of mammals living in the surrounding conservation area.

Accommodation is in 30 individual chalets and villas. The eco-friendly structures are minimalistic yet stylish with ceiling fans, en suites with hot showers, and private decks with views of the river and jungle. The deluxe chalets have outdoor tubs, while the premium villas have private plunge pools.

All meals are provided, served buffet-style in the dining room or on the outdoor terrace to the soundtrack of the jungle.

The lodge has its own canopy walkway, offering views of the jungle and wildlife. After a day’s adventuring, a Danum Valley Trekking Treatment in the spa will ease weary muscles.

Why we recommend Borneo Rainforest Lodge

Located deep in the Danum Valley, Borneo Rainforest Lodge offers an amazing opportunity to  immerse yourself in nature. As one of the more luxurious lodges in Sabah, it’s a very special place despite the accommodation being fairly basic. Upgrading to a Deluxe Room is definitely worth the extra as you get stunning views onto the rainforest and nearby stream. The high standard of facilities, guides and activities makes this stay memorable every time.
