It's an award winning Eco lodge that's currently listed in the Top 50 best lodges in the world... I'm not surprised, it is fantastic! The lodge was on the banks of the river with its restaurant overlo...oking the water. Our room had a big window facing onto the jungle, and there was even a pool at the back. David Attenborough has stayed at this lodge on a number of occasions when filming for the BBC.
At night we heard lots of animal noises and even walking to breakfast was a mini safari with flying foxes and Pablo, the resident Macaque monkey who was caught red handed as he stole our breakfast!
During our stay we were lucky enough to be able to spot the 'Big Five': Orangutan, Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Proboscis Monkey, Crocodile and the Rhinoceros Hornbill.

This lodge is incredible. From the staff, the suites and villas, tantalising food and the facilities - they are all top class. This is my second visit and will not be my last. It is such a special pla...ce to reconnect with the environment and yourself. So amazing that while we were there, we had the privilege of seeing orangutans Lucky and her baby Day. They were there to welcome us and hung around for the couple of days we stayed. An amazing experience. Treat yourself, you won’t be disappointed! See More

Amazing place to stay with exceptional setting and very good accommodations. Dining riverside was always nice and the dip pool was good for cooling off between activities. Here are some of the best op...portunities to see a multitude of wildlife with knowledgable guides and everything designed with ecology in mind. We saw the big five, except for elephants which the group the day before us saw. Seeing 5 kinds of hornbills (of 8 possible) was wonderful. And then, the real highlight, watching the mother orang utan and her 3 year old baby for half an hour from the walkways around the lodge. Truly thrilling. See More

We had a lovely stay at Sukau. The staff were fantastic and the food very good. They baked a wonderful cake for my daughters birthday which was lovely. The new villas we stayed in were beautiful even ...though at the beginning we had no water (and we were desperate for a shower) & a twin instead of king bed. All sorted out quickly & gracefully. The adverts say the new villas have wifi but this hasn't been installed as yet. Not a problem for us as it was good to escape the internet for a few days. We saw a huge herd of elephants and also proboscis monkeys, other monkeys, crocodiles & birds. Sadly the orangutan was hiding in the tree & we only caught a shadow. We enjoyed the boat safaris along the river. All together a very memorable stay in a beautiful location. See More

Thanks for a great experience! We saw the big five but the hightlight was seeing the elephants cross the river! A once in a lifetime sight! The new villas are beautiful and very comfortable.

We had the plesure to stay 3 nigths at Sukau. Such an amazing place. We loved the smiling staff, the river cruises and the very beautiful new villa nr 10. We even loved the Barking Gecko that lived ou...tside and inside our villa, and barked at us both night and day� See More

I went there with my husband and 2 year old boy, for 3 nights, and it was fantastic. We can not recommend this place enough, and can't wait to come back. Thank you for all, especially finding our sons... car in the river, after he dropped it. Thank you♥ See More

We made an upgrade for the very new rooms, "villa" it is more expensive than the standard rooms. Unfortunately it does not give you any more "extras" as we got in Danum Valley, Borneo Rainforest lodge...! The villas are very nice, great architecture and a super shower, we think the room is a bit small. We enjoyed the boat cruises on the Kinabatangan River, we saw the proboscis monkeys, pied hornbills, long tail � , Borneo Pygmy elephants, black squirrels, eagles, pigeons, crocodile, orang utan, one kingfisher, swallows... but I do not think that the wildlife is abundant and it is rather difficult to see and photograph the animals and birds. The palm plantations are very close and has probably already made an impact on the wildlife. The food was ok, enough and fresh! Water, tea and coffee is for free, but all other drinks are charged. The employees are very nice and helpful, good service all over! The place is very pleasant, we stay for 3 nights, that is perfect! I think that more could be done to this lodge to make it a little bit more special! National Geographic has given them a very good push! Maybe that did not have the right sort of influence?..

Spent 3 days at Sukau and I can only sing it's praises. We came here in the hope of seeing pygmy elephants in their natural habitat and with the help of the wonderful guide Suki, we saw one of the her...ds making a river crossing. Super staff, experienced and knowledgeable guides, lovely food and clean, spacious rooms makes Sukau Rainforest Lodge a must if travelling through Borneo See More

We spent a week at the lodge. It was an amazing experience. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the food was fabulous, we had great group and had a lot of fun with our guide, Nexter. I learned a lo...t about the animals. I cannot put into words the emotion of seeing these animals in the wild and learning about the rehabilitation process of orphaned babies. We must protect these creatures and their habitats!! See More

We took a 3 week trip around Borneo for our honeymoon and our 3 days here was our absolute highlight! From the fantastic lodge itself, the amazing location, the guides (in particular Suhailie- who was... fantastic by the way!) to the huge amount of nature we saw here- a herd of Pygmy elephants, orangutans, 5m crocodile, proboscis monkeys, red and silver leaf monkeys to flying lemurs and flying foxes.. and the list goes on. I would highly recommend this lodge! � See More

We had an amazing experience and the staff were amazing! We were lucky enough to see the big 5 and a Borneo Gibbon thanks to our amazing guide, Jamil. We walked around the hornbill boardwalk multiple ...times and we were lucky to see a wild orangutan with her baby!!! It was a great opportunity to learn and ask questions as well and to meet some lovely people at the lodge. We were very sad to leave and would love to return! See More

The Sukai Rainforest Lodge was a wonderful experience fir the whole family. We saw 76 Elephants on our first boat cruise which is something I will always remember - as well as many monkeys and birds -... especially hornbill. The staff were amazing and the Lodge was very inviting. I highly recommend it. See More

We came to Sukau Lodge at the start of our honeymoon, and had a fantastic visit largely due to the friendly and hospitable staff. The lodge had a lovely atmosphere and maximised our exposure to the l...ocal wildlife and culture. Special mention goes to our guide Suhailee, who was extremely knowledgable and went out of his way to ensure that our experience was a memorable one. We saw the local 'big five ' including many wild orangutan sightings including a mother any baby whilst on the way to the Gomontong Caves. The highlight of our visit to Borneo thus far! See More

We are deeply saddened for the loss of our Conservation Fellow, HRH Prince Henrik of Denmark who passed away just recently. Our deepest condolence goes out to his family.

Prince Henrik visited Kinabatangan in 2002, and we had the honor and pleasure of having him stay at the lodge. The Prince Consort also participated in our reforestation program, Kinabatangan Wildlife Corridor Regeneration Program (KWICORP), and his contribution earned him a place on our Wall of Conservation Fellows.

Prince had lamented fact he was not titled as king and said he would refuse to be buried next to his wife in protest
