3D2N Sukau Rainforest Lodge

Our 3D2N Sukau Rainforest Lodge package offers visitors the opportunity to experience Sabah’s longest river and the second longest in the whole of Malaysia in the most eco-friendly environment. Rising from the eastern Witta Range of Sabah, the Kinabatangan River begins its 350 mile (563km) north-easterly course towards the Sulu Sea. Approximately 20 oxbow lakes form part of the lower regions of the river. Created over time and separated from the main river as erosion and deposits of soil changed the river’s course, oxbow lakes are paradise for bird watchers.

Kinabatangan River Premium Lodge

River People, or Orang Sungei, live in small settlements spread out along the river. It’s fascinating to see their self sufficient, peaceful homes fully operational, making a living through fishing the lakes and rivers and farming vegetables on its banks. They use the forests of the Kinabatangan as a source of building material, firewood food and medicine. Early morning and late afternoon rivers cruises are the best way to enjoy the river and encounter wildlife.

We suggest staying along the river for two nights since this provides the opportunity for morning and evening river safaris and day time trekking. However if you prefer a tailored trip we also arrange day trips, 2Day 1Night and 4Day 3Night stays other than our 3D2N Sukau Rainforest Lodge.

Sukau Rainforest Lodge

Built on stilts near the river’s edge, Sukau Rainforest Lodge offers a balanced mix of unique jungle experience and comfort of deluxe facilities to maximise your adventure at Kinabatangan River. The lodge comprises of a bar lounge, a gift shop, Gomantong Hall meeting place, education centre, Hornbill Boardwalk with two elephant passes, three open decks for wildlife viewing, an enclosed garden, a riverside Melapi restaurant, open sun-deck & river jetty.

All rooms have attached bathroom and shower water is supplied through rainwater harvesting and hot water by solar heaters. Air is cooled by cross ventilation air currents and ceiling fans. Lighting is supplemented by oil lamps using recycled cooking oil. The river tours are conducted by boats powered by electric motors and four strokes outboard engines, enabling guests to be immerse in the river’s natural environment without disturbing its wildlife. Guests have the option to go to the lodge by land or by boat.
