Sepilok Nature Resort

Beautifully set in lush grounds within walking distance of the lowland rainforests of Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve with it’s renowned orang-utan centre, sun bear centre and rainforest discovery centre.

The spacious chalets at Sepilok Nature Resort have private facilities and are tastefully decorated with local wood and handmade textiles. The restaurant serves a good selection of local and more international food and there is free Wi-Fi available here.

The chalets are surrounded by wildlife-filled gardens which would take half a day to appreciate fully and include a natural lake, and orang-utans can sometimes be seen in the adjacent forest. The lodge offers guided walks through the reserve in the early morning and at night when orang-utans, flying squirrels and slow loris are often spotted.

Each of the 60 chalets has twin or double beds, air-conditioning, private bathrooms with hot water, TV and mini bar. Most chalets also have a private veranda that overlooks the lush gardens or the peaceful lake.

The famous Sepilok Organ-Utan Rehabilitation Centre and the new Sun Bear Centre are only a 5-minute walk from the resort. It is approximately 20 minutes to the Rainforest Discovery Centre.


Rooms with private hot water bathrooms, verandas, free Wi-Fi, ceiling fans, satellite TV, laundry service and private veranda.

Thank you for a wonderful journey. We had a lovely time in Borneo and when you get to the primary rainforest in the Danum valley it feels like you are in the Garden of Eden. Helen was very helpful in preparing our itinerary, was helpful whenever I phoned and assured us at each step. At the destination everything ran smoothly. Specific wildlife highlights: orang utans, 5 types of hornbill, crocodile, monitor lizards, short and long tailed macaque, langur monkeys, civet cats, leopard cats, mouse deer, tree frogs, wild pigs, insects, lots of birds, stingray, big turtle, baby turtles and many fish.
