Stay at Borneo Rainforest Lodge

The Danum Valley Conservation area in eastern Sabah is one of the world’s most bio-diverse rainforests, and although it’s a bumpy two-hour car ride to get to the Borneo Rainforest Lodge, you will find it hard not to get a little excited when you first clap eyes on the stunning location on a bend of the Danum River.

It is difficult to believe that so much comfort can exist in the

heart of the forest. Do note, though, that you’ll have to forgo some luxuries. The 30 well appointed chalets are delightfully spacious and feature private balconies perfect for taking in the spectacular river or jungle views. If you can, go for a deluxe chalet and relax in your private outside hot tub after a day’s exploring.

My husband and I stayed at the Datai for our honeymoon and wanted to take our kids back after the refurb. We needed Peter and Katie‘s guidance to help us create a trip memorable for more than a beautiful hotel and perfect beach. Kuala Lumpur was so much fun but – amazing food and we rushed about for 2 nights there before heading down to Sepilok to see the orangutans, our boys LOVED that. Thankfully the Datai was even better than we remembered it. Such an amazing family holiday. Thank you True Luxury.
