Borneo Rainforest Lodge - in the heart of Danum Valley

The Borneo Rainforest 5D4N package is a perfect choice for those wanting total jungle immersion during their holiday in Borneo whilst staying in charmingly rustic, yet luxurious lodge accommodation. Borneo Rainforest Lodge is located alongside the Danum River flowing through Sabah's largest protected Lowland Rainforest - Danum Valley Conservation Area. The lodge is around a 2-3 hour drive from the small town of Lahad Datu. Its remote location in the midst of Danum Valley makes it the perfect setting for seeing wildlife and experiencing the natural beauty of a pristine rainforest.

Borneo Rainforest Lodge has a maximum of 60 guests staying there at one time (31 rooms). This provides for an ‘exclusive’ experience which is complemented by personalised service, guiding by experienced Nature Guides and good quality local dishes served at the Lodge open plan restaurant. After a hard day of exploring, what better way to end the day than relaxing in the Lodge’s bar, take in the views and enjoy a cool drink (or two) whilst listening to the soothing sounds of the forest in Danum Valley?

Borneo Rainforest Lodge - Trekking, Tubing, Canopy Walkway or Just Chilling Out

During your stay at Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Danum Valley you can do as much, or as little, as you want. During the day, join guided treks with your Nature Guide as you go in search of the flora and fauna found in surrounding rainforest in Danum Valley. There are a range of trails accessible from the Lodge ranging in distance from 0.5km up to 3.0km. As Danum Valley Conservation Area is home to more than 340 species of Birds, 124 species of Mammals, 72 species of Reptiles, 56 species of Amphibians and 200 species of plants per hectare you can expect to see some pretty amazing wildlife. Or you can choose to chill out and just sit back and relax on your outdoor balcony taking in the sights and sounds of the surrounding rainforest. The choice is yours.

Besides the day trekking, you can go on Night Treks in search of nocturnal life, go tubing along the Danum River, visit an ancient Kadazan-Dusun Tribal Burial Cliff or go for a walk along the Canopy Walkway. The Canopy Walkway near Borneo Rainforest Lodge has multiple viewing platforms, spanning approximately 300m in length and stands at 26m at the highest point offering an up-close view of the 130 million year old rainforest canopy found in Danum Valley.

At Borneo Rainforest Lodge there are two types of chalets offered - Standard Chalet (Jungle View) and Deluxe Chalet (River view or Jungle view). Both chalets are similar in terms of the layout, offering large rooms with an en suite bathroom and their own environmentally friendly fan cooling system (no aircon). The Deluxe Chalets are 20% larger with a private balcony and an outdoor hot tub.
