Sukau Rainforest Lodge, Kinabatangan River

Experiential | Very Good | Excellent | Magnificent | Out of this world

Highlights

  • Luxurious setting
  • Riverside location
  • A focus on protecting the wildlife while getting as close to it as possible 

Nestled on the bank of the Kinabatangan River, one of Borneo’s most impressive waterways, is the award winning Sukau Rainforest Lodge. Here you will be treated to a magnificent view of nature at its best, where the tranquil sounds of the rainforest give way to the cacophony of birds, monkeys and elephants that will produce an experience you can never forget. 

As you walk along the connected walkways which blend naturally in to the forest, you can make friends with majestic birds and be treated to the sights of all 7 of the Borneo Primates that originate here. From the iconic Proboscis Monkey to flying squirrels and the Borneo Bay Cat.

Get out on the river in an early morning or afternoon cruise to get close to the wildlife who call this water home, or take a lecture on the secrets of the rainforest by the hotel guides. At night, dinner by candlelight beckons on the river decking, or why not take an evening cruise to find those elusive civets, a nocturnal mammal almost like a cross between a cat and an otter.
