Best choice if you are in Sepilok”

Everything is awesome here. From the staff to the room, to the food. Above all - stunning views, relaxing environment. You feel one with nature here and it’s nearby all the main attractions (less than 2km) of Sepilok. Love the outdoor shower as well. The whole room / chalet has an eco-friendly concept which is great. Will definitely return to this place to chill and relax.

Nice pleasant stay”

The staff were friendly, accommodation clean (if you ignore the bat poo) and a cool outdoor shower. Breakfast was so so. Didn't realise that we could have eggs until we were asked on our final day.

Rustic Luxury”

We had a great stay at Forest Edge. After a very no-frills river stay, the Forest Edge was a welcome bit of luxury. The cabins have great a/c and are situated at a good distance from one another. The restaurant really works to meet visitors' needs, and one can walk to the sun bears, orangutans and even the Rainforest Discovery Center in a pinch.

Staff are excellent! ”

Had a lovely 3 night stay. We took some time to relax after climbing Mt Kinabalu. The staff were so lovely and helpful. Jessica in the restaurant was fantastic and we felt at home. It’s a comfortable spot to stop and relax, while being just a short distance to the attractions of sepilok. Food in the restaurant is the best in the area! And at a good price!
