    Amazing Experience ”

    Had a wonderful time staying at sunshine lodge. Mus is a wonderful guide and host and made our stay extra special. Easy contact and transfer across the river. Accommodation is basic but has everything you need and great jungle setting. Food was all lovely and no problems catering for 2 vegetarians! Managed to see elephants, proboscis monkeys, eagles, silver monkeys and many more on the boat tours. A great stay overall, would highly recommend :)

    Quite the Adventure!!!”

    We had the best time here! The lodge contacted us with a package to add to our hotel room and it turned out to be fabulous. For three nights, we received six boat tours, two day hikes, and three night hikes, although one night hike was rained out. Our guide was beyond friendly and knowledgeable and really went the extra mile to help us spot animals and have a great time. We spotted orangutans, proboscis, crocodiles, macaques, hornbills, snakes, monitors, a gibbon, and a myriad of beautiful birds. The food that came with our package was delicious. The lodge itself is rustic, but that only adds to the feeling of actually being deep in the jungle away from civilization. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. No wifi, but that turned out to be a bonus. We will definitely come back some day!

    Beautiful location and amazing food!”

    The location of this lodge is so beautiful and peaceful. It’s small with only a few lodges which takes away the ‘resort’ feeling from the other surrounding properties. You can easily book tours for river cruises with their personal guide. It gives you a more intimate experience than the fully loaded boats from the other hotels/lodges. The chef from the lodge makes very good local cuisine that is fresh and super tasty!! The rooms are super clean, cozy, new and very nice! Definite recommendation!

    Wonderful place”

    Location, nature

    The surroundings are awesome, you're in the middle of the jungle. The lodge is very clean, and although it is very basic, it has everything you need (remember you're in the jungle). One thing to bear in mind is that this lodge normally works selling accommodation+activities packages, so if you book the room through Agoda these guys will contact you to offer the rest of the package, which is quite overpriced but it is fine. Actually you don't have many choices other than getting the package, as there is no way to get to this place on your own or do anything else around without the guides. In any case, the place is wonderful.
