Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge

Kinabatangan River (Sukau) | First Class

Formerly known as Old Ben's Lodge, the Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge is a good solid base from which to explore along the river or around the local nature trails.

The rooms, which are in wooden stilt-cabins connected by treetop walkways, are furnished sparingly but comfortably, with decent en suite shower rooms. Ten of the chalets benefit from air-con and it's worth paying the supplement as temperatures along the Kinabatangan River can be sultry. The newly added swimming pool provides additional respite and refreshment from the jungle climate and is the perfect spot in which to relax between river safaris.

The friendly, experienced staff work closely with nearby communities to ensure that local produce is used in the Lodge's delicious cooking, which you can enjoy on the superbly placed riverside terrace.

We Say
You'll probably meet the local wildlife before you even leave the Lodge, with nature documentaries in the TV room to fill you on "the science bit".
